Plato once said that music gives wings to the mind.

So what better way to motivate you than a seamless soundtrack while you push your body to its limits. 

The app has thousands of playlists selected by top DJs. 

The tempo adjusts to your workout whatever your taste — funk, pop, rock, hip-hop R&B or country. 

You can use it for the gym, couch-to-5k, crossfit or cycling and it synchronises with running and tracking apps.
