Meet the new trainer in your pocket, adidas miCoach, now on Windows Phone 8

Motivation is key to getting in shape, and if you can’t have a personal trainer that will haul you out of bed every day, adidas miCoach may be a great option for becoming a better you. (Or at least one that’s more physically fit!)

This free Windows Phone 8 app works like a high-tech trainer with GPS and real-time voice coaching. It’ll help pace you through your run whether you’re on a treadmill or enjoying the great outdoors. miCoach also tracks and analyzes your distance, speed, elapsed time and pacing. And with the support of a compatible Bluetooth heart-rate monitor (HRM), miCoach can even track your heart rate and calories burned.

Runners will love how miCoach displays routes with Nokia HERE maps (including detailed elevation!), as well as daily planned workouts and coaching feedback delivered to your phone. You can always access your latest achievements and major milestones, and use that progress to keep you going.

With Windows Phone 8, you can also share your runs to connected social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, or simply via email; and pin your favorite workouts to your home screen.

Install adidas miCoach from the Windows Phone Store and start working out! Read more about adidas miCoach on the Windows Phone Blog.
