Adidas miCoach is similar to other GPS tracking Android apps like Google MyTracks and CardioTrainer with the added bonus of real-time coaching and user-created, paced music playlists.
After signing up for a free account, click the “Go” button and choose the “Assessment Workout” to determine your fitness level. Then you can schedule workouts depending on your goals, whether it be building speed, endurance, or both.
Once you’ve decided on a workout, choose a playlist that you have previously created in the stock Android music app. You can also specify how much voice coaching you prefer (full, instructional only, and none), as well as whether or not you want GPS tracking enabled. To begin, click the green “Start Workout” button.
The workout interface displays the time elapsed, current phase, and lets you adjust the music playlist. A great feature of this app is its default setting of locking the workout screen to avoid any inadvertent selections. To unlock, swipe across the bottom of the screen to display the options to pause or end the workout.
Upon completion, the summary page clearly displays the time elapsed, calories burned, distance covered, and the pace. You can also add information about your shoes (if you’d like to track the life of your running shoes), workout rating, and personal notes. Then, save and sync your workout details to the app itself and miCoach.com (which offers extensive detailed workout information, tracking statistics, etc.).
