Strength training is one thing, but cardio builds a strong foundation for a healthy life. No matter your fitness level, even walking is often a good way to build up some stamina and get some fresh air. It can progress to jogging and running, or you can branch out into different forms of cardio. Regardless of your favorite workout, Adidas Running (formerly Runtastic) is a fantastic companion for your walks, jogs, runs, hikes, and more.
Adidas Running helps you track and plan your exercise routines, and it covers many different things, such as cycling, running, or swimming. In total, there are over 90 different activities you can track, plus plenty of exercises like push-ups and pull-ups. For the times when you’re out walking or running, it has a pedometer, and you can sync it with your smartwatch — but you don’t have to, the step counter works on your phone. There’s also built-in GPS tracking so that you can plan your route or simply view it when you’re done.
The app has a lot of nifty features that can especially be helpful for weight loss and overall wellness. It tracks the duration of your cardio, tells you how many calories you’ve burned, the distance you’ve covered, and even monitors your heart rate (not on every device, though. You’ll need to check whether it’s compatible with yours on the official page).
The base app is free to use, but there are certain features that are locked behind a paywall. You can choose to subscribe to the app for $9.99 per month or $49.99 per year.
