Runtastic has released their popular fitness apps for Windows 8.1 and you can download them right now for free. The apps include Squats Pro, PushUps Pro, and SitUps Pro, and help you stay fit accompanied by your Windows 8.1 tablet.
Runtastic is a relatively new company, having been founded in 2009, and has rapidly grown into an innovative suite of apps, products and services that track and manage health and fitness data to motivate individuals to get in shape, stay healthy, and improve overall fitness. You can check out their website at Runtastic.com.
All three apps provide you with instructions and motivational tools, along with three levels of a sport science training plan. Squats and sit-ups are counted automatically using the accelerometer, while the recognition of your push ups is done automatically by touching the screen with your nose.
The apps feature a "voice coach" that pushes you to the limit. Can you crank out 50 push-ups? Well, with the voice coach, you might be able to squeeze out a few extra. After you are done with your workout, you can share your results to your friends on social media.
The app also features monthly training stats, and you can upload workout activities to Runtastic.com for future review, analysis, and comparison.
