    As you gear up to get started on your running routine, one of the most important things that you might be asking yourself is where to do your runs. While some people have a srong preference of either the treadmill or outside, others may not be so sure.

    Is one better than the other? Would you see enhanced results running outdoors compared to on a treadmill? Or perhaps the treadmill is better?

    By understanding the differences between the two, you can make a more informed decision on where to do your runs.

    Looking to shed fat faster with your fitness plan? If you’ve been working hard toward reaching your bodyweight goals but have yet to incorporate HIIT training into your regime, now is the time to start.

    HIIT has been proven to be a superior fat burning compared to any form of steady state training – which includes all those hours you’ve spent on the treadmill, bike, or elliptical trainer.

    While those exercises may help boost your heart health slightly, they are doing very little to really crank up the dial on total body fat burning, improved fitness capacity, and enhanced metabolic rate.

    With HIIT, you don’t just burn more fat while you do it, but you’ll burn more fat after it’s completed as well.

    What Is The 80/20 Rule?

    The 80/20 rule basically states that you should be ‘on’ the plan around 80% of the time, which then allows you time to have freedom and flexibility the other 20% of the time.

    Most people when they first start out on a healthy eating plan expect themselves to be 100% healthy 24/7.

  9. Hello!

    Please give it some time for the workout to show up. If you find that after a couple hours it still doesn't show up, you can always "repeat" the workout and fast forward to the end and try sending the data again. MyFitnessPal has been having some issues with users logging in, and so that means that if the c25k app can't log into MFP, then no data is sent. 

     

    Another thing to try is to log out of your MFP app, and log back in. That would hopefully reset the MFP app, which then would give c25k app permission to send data. 

     

    Thanks! As always, you can send an email to contactus@zenlabsllc.com for more support and help. 


  10. Hi there!

     

    You can mark weeks 1-8 as completed by double tapping the workouts (iOS) or long pressing them (Android). The app will then see that you have completed those weeks, and will skip to week 9.

     

    At this time our partnership with MyFitnessPal only allows for MFP integration with the c25k app. But we are working with MFP to integrate MFP functionality into all our other running apps as well!

     

    Thanks! If you have any further questions, please email support at contactus@zenlabsllc.com or you can email us from the pull down menu at the top of the website.

     

    Happy running!
