Every January, fresh from a long season of pies, candy, and overeating, millions of people sign up for gym memberships or diet plans to get in control of their physical well-being. Indeed, the resolution to lose weight and get in shape is probably the most widely-used New Year’s resolution out there.
Runkeeper is looking to help these individuals out by providing the premium version of their application (Runkeeper Pro) free-of-charge for the entire month of January. Normally valued at $9.99 in the Android Market, Runkeeper Pro allows you to use your phone’s GPS capabilities to track your workout information, including distance, speed, calories burned, and more. The pro version provides the extra incentives of audio cues, customized interval workouts, integrated RunKeeper FitnessClasses and no annoying ads.
So if you’ve resolved to get back in shape this New Year’s, you might want to head to the market and download the free Runkeeper Pro application. You will need Android 2.1 or higher to download the application.
