  1. Zombies, Run!

    Some people love to run. They make it a hobby. The ability and ease just comes naturally to them. I am not one of those people. In fact, I’ve always hated it, and it has always been my absolute least favorite form of exercise. However, that totally changed when I had to run from deadly zombies and collect various supplies to save my life on Zombies, Run!. This app is SO. FUN. As you run, you collect data (in the game) and each step counts towards supplies needed to survive the zombie apocalypse. In the app’s first 2-weeks on the market, it ranked as the highest grossing download in the app stores. The basic version of the app is free, but in order to get upgrades and more game options, you do have to spend a little bit of money.
     
  2. Spotify

    Smartphones are great for playing music during workouts. If you think about it, that’s kind of why the iPhone was created in the first place, remember? It was an iPod turned into a smartphone. Nowadays, tons of people stream their workout music from sources like Pandora and Spotify, as these apps if you many playlist options. If you’ve ever done this, though, you know how frustrating it can be when you put your playlist on to go for a run, and one of the songs that comes on is just way too slow. Well luckily, Spotify created a solution for that. This Spotify extension for running actually calculates your speed and chooses songs with similar tempos to match your pace! How awesome is that?! Now, whether you’re on the treadmill at the gym, doing laps around your neighborhood, or even running in place in your living room, Spotify can make your run so much more enjoyable no matter where you are!
