A great way to get spice up and get the most out of your treadmill workouts is to use one of the many mobile apps available! In fact, of all the treadmill running tips I give to my clients, this is the one that gets the most positive feedback!
But, why would I need an app for my treadmill work out when most treadmills have built in features to track my stats?
Mobile apps make it easy to track your workouts and upload and save them to the web so you can view the results anywhere. Plus, most treadmill or elliptical owners also run on the street or like to track how many steps they take in a day, so a mobile app makes it easy to track all of this with one simple user interface and you can view your progress for all of these activities in one place.
So, spice up your treadmill workouts, track your progress and much more with one of these popular treadmill running apps for iPhone!
This is one of the more popular apps on the market and is recommended by Weight Watchers, Women’s Health and many others. The problem with many running apps is they are inaccurate, but that isn’t the case with iTreadmills Pocketstep technology!

As the name suggests, the Fun Run Trainer makes the otherwise boring treadmill run a lot more fun! This little app allows you to run in anywhere in the world – famous streets, beaches, etc – or you can create a custom route using Google maps. It even changes the elevation in real time just like you were actually running in your desired location. And you can follow along the route with a moving satellite map.
