Popular fitness app RunKeeper has had a host of updates and new features added this week, which mean that users can now access more free training plans and coaching advice than ever before.
RunKeeper has always offered tailored advice and training programmes to paying users, but now the team behind the app has realised that people get much better fitness results when they have to follow a strict plan (which we're not surprised by one bit). So, a range of new training features have been added to the app for all users.
In a blog post about the new training programmes Chas Wagner of RunKeeper writes:
"Whether your goal is to lose weight, complete a race of a certain distance, or do so with a specific time goal in mind, now you can follow a detailed plan from your favorite coach that will tell you what to do each day, and provide guidance in your ear as you are doing it."
