adidas miCoach app gives Android users a personal coach

miCoach Android AppWhile the choice for health and fitness software for smartphones isn’t really as extensive as we’d like it to be, there are still a number of applications worth hopping onto. At least adidas’ miCoach application invoked similar feelings when it was released for the iPhone and BlackBerry platform last year. More recently, the adidas miCoach app for Android was showed off at the MWC, 2011.

Jointly with Google, the app is said to offer Android users an innovative way of gaining access to personal and audible training in real time. From music and a coach to a workout calendar, almost all user needs are covered with this app on the phone. As a personal coach, the app provides voice coaching along with personalized and sports-specific training plans. The specific plans should allow similar training to both sports and fitness enthusiasts, along with amateurs and professionals.

There are six specific conditioning programs for sports like basketball, football, running, soccer, and tennis. The committed program for fitness employs GPS to allow pace-based coaching and location tracking in real time. With zones depending on a personal assessment workout, the application is fully customizable. Users can avail of immediate feedback with the help of graphs and maps. The application’s ability to sync automatically to micoach.com will ensure all user data is safe.

In addition to this, the application is capable of monitoring, managing and analyzing users’ progress while being updated with content for coaching based on training needs. Shoe tracking and alerts should help keep injuries at bay. The application supports many languages.

Starting late April, the miCoach app for Android will hit the Android Market as a free to download.
