Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
The Couch to 5K coach you select talks to you during your workouts. To save your battery, Couch to 5K sends audio notifications when your screen is locked or another app is in use.
To be sure you hear the coach during your workout, please do the following:
Turn on Notifications permissions
Turn on the hardware ring/silent switch (no red showing)
Turn your ringer volume up
Turn off Do Not Disturb (swipe up for Control Panel and the moon button should not be white)
Within the app, in Settings > Workout Options, be sure the Trainer Volume is up
Without granting notification permissions, during a workout you can click the lock icon at the top left to keep the app active and still hear the coach.
For support please contact us at: [email protected] We would love to hear from you.

"I knew as soon as I decided to start the Couch to 5K program that I would need something to keep me accountablenot just to showing up for my training, but to actually doing it properly. Of course theres an app for that."
CalorieLab, April 2012
"If you have been struggling to get your buns off the couch and somewhat in shape before the summer hits, training for a 5K is not a bad way to start. If you are looking for a program to help get you there, then the Couch to 5K running plan by CoolRunning is probably your best bet if you havent done an ounce of athletic activity for a number of years."
