App of the Day: Runtastic Fitness Collection. A Little Coaching Can Get You to 100 Push Ups
By Leslie Horn
Runtastic makes a great app for running, and now it has released a couple of standalone fitness apps for sit ups, push ups, pull ups, and squats.
What do they do?
Coaches you and lets you you set goals for those four exercises. Helps you your way up to doing 100 push ups, 100 sit ups, 150 squats, and 30 pull ups.
Why do we like them?
100 push ups sounds almost unattainable. But with practice, it’s possible. These apps will get you there. Also, we’ve spent a lot of time stuck inside over the past couple of days what with the Hurricane screwing everything up, and could use a little physical activity.
Runtastic PullUps: $0.99, iOS/Free, Android
Runtastic Squats: $0.99, iOS/Free, Android
Runtastic SitUps: $0.99, iOS/Free, Android
Runtastic PushUps: $0.99, iOS/Free, Android
The best: Voice coaching
The worst: That’s a lot of push ups, pull ups, etc.
