Cardio Trainer ~ An Android APP Review

Guest Author - Kathryn K Free

Cardio Trainer was a FREE APP that I download when I got my Android phone. Wasn't sure what it would do but it sounded interesting. What I found was a pleasant surprise.

Opening Screen:
You are given 6 choices. The first choice is whether your workout will be Outdoors or Indoors. With the Outdoor option you have the choice of GPS & Steps whereas the Indoor records steps only. This is important to know since GPS & Steps does not actually record how many steps you took but only the distance you traveled using GPS. This difference took me some time to figure out because I began my workout inside and when I stepped outside my step tracking when away. So using this as a pedometer started out frustrating. Once I read the FAQ's and understood what happened it was good.

The next four options are the programs. There are two FREE programs and then two PAID programs. The FREE programs are 'Record Your Workout' and 'See High Scores'. When I looked at the 'See High Scores' I could not figure out what it was suppose to do or how the information got there.

The PAID programs come with an introductory free trial. The first is 'Weight Loss Trainer' and allows you to set goals, set plan, workout using the 'Record Your Workout' an then see results. What I did not realize was that the introductory free trial began when I first downloaded the program and so since I did not open it for a few weeks I lost most of my free trial.

The second PAD program was 'Race Against Yourself' and I have not tried this one yet. What it looks to do is have you choose one of your saved workouts and race against the time it took you to complete it. This feature sounds pretty interesting an I plan on trying it out this week.

So for the FREE APP you basically get a pedometer and workout recorder. It is very accurate and allows you to have voice calls telling you how far you have gone plus allows you to listen to music on your phone while working out. There are maps and various different displays. Once your workout is finished you can save it to use at a later time or see graphs.

To take advantage of the entire program you will pay $2.99 + $2.99. So for a few pennies less than $6 you can have a pretty good workout APP that is easy to take with and to use.

I give this APP a 4.5 star rating.
You can find this APP in the Android Market.

I have setup my 'Weight Loss Trainer' and will start tomorrow working my plan! Will give everyone an update in the newsletter about how working with the entire program was.
