Weekend Top 5 – including the Twin Cities Marathon



Cool New App!

Skyfit is an app which streams classes for runners. If you’ve ever been to a spin class at a gym or a studio, it’s a very similar experience, except for runners. The classes consist of three key components

Music – The trainers diligently select popular music which works perfectly with a given run speed or incline. Specifically, the beats per minute of the track will match the pace of your run. This helps motivate you, and ultimately have a more efficient run.

Motivation – Throughout the class, trainers provide the motivation you need to push your run to the next level.

Instruction – Trainers will give you instructions on what incline and speed to go throughout the class, to ensure you have an efficient and effective run. For treadmill runs, trainers provide incline and speed. For elliptical, trainers provide incline and resistance. And for outdoor runs, the trainers provide relative speed instructions.

If you still are unclear, you can watch the video here, or you can try a month of classes for free.
