Fitness App of the week: TempRun

iPhone, €3

The majority of those who like to exercise will testify that their workout music is an all important accessory. The type of songs that one listens to can determine the success and intensity of a workout, and TempoRun acknowledges this. Although the app is designed for runners, it is suitable for any form of intense exercise and is an excellent tool if used correctly.

The app works in a simple yet clever way.

Once downloaded, it will scan the music library on your device and categorise each song from level 1 to level 10 based on tempo. Level 1 is a walk, level 5 is a jog, and level 10 is a sprint.

If you do not agree with the rating that the song has been given, you can also manually assign levels to each song. The app also tracks important figures like distance covered, calories burned, and pace during each workout.

The app boasts a clean interface which is very accessible and simple to use during your run, so if you wish to change a song it will not put you off your stride.

If you are struggling with an appropriate playlist for your workout, why not try this useful app today.
