RunKeeper Updated with New In-App Training Programs

RunKeeper has updated its iOS app to add the ability to purchase new real world in-app training programs.

“With this update, RunKeeper is taking another step towards bringing the expert guidance of a personal trainer to the convenience of a smartphone, in an automated way,” said RunKeeper CEO Jason Jacobs. “Tracking your activities is a start, but guidance is key for many people who are trying to improve and may not know where to begin. Over time, the goal is to evolve into a sort of personalized coach for our users — helping them make smarter decisions about their health and fitness.”

The new training tab allows users access to various training plans, with some free but most available as in-app purchases. These plans are from real world certified trainers aimed at helping you reach your fitness goals.

Also news is an updated Me tab which now shows all your activities in one place, ordered like a news feed. Also new are friend profiles which let you easily keep track of the activities of your friends.

RunKeeper has built-in integration with the Pebble smart watch and works great no matter what kind you’re doing. Click here to download RunKeeper–it’s free.

    I love RunKeeper. I use it several times a week (for cycling and running). But I would pay for a stripped down version that did away with all the social bells & whistles, saving to the internet, training programs, etc. So like, have a free Pro version and a paid Lite version. :) I’d pay $4.99 today for the exact same RunKeeper app I have now minus nagging me to run socially or share my feelings or whatever.
