Live the book but app needs work I will refund after review. I love the concept but I can't see how this will motivate me. Let us have option to play our own music and have voice over with motivations. Videos and grahics are great. Will check later with updates to see if added option for music.

Concept is great but lacks functionality The only running app I paid for but don't use! there's no audio ducking (mute other apps like Pandora when playing audio cues). GPS is inaccurate, says I ran 7 miles at a 9:00 when I only ran 5 miles making the pace much slower over the activity duration. Very Disappointing! Please refine this app! So badly want to use it daily!

Poorly written app The chi focus and stretching demo are ok, but functionality of the app is crude at best. I used the app today and it recorded 0.00miles and 0.00 cal. in 20 minutes of running at 9 min. pace (yes I did have my gps on). During that whole time there where no chi focus prompts just the metronome.
