Fun Run Trainer is a totally unique iPhone application that allows the user to run, jog or walk, anywhere in the world on any treadmill as if you are there, with a real time video map and precise inclination settings.
'We have tried hard to make our application appeal to all sorts of treadmills users. For those who want to go for a casual walk we have a number of world famous beaches for them to walk along. We have also included some of the world's most famous streets like Wall Street, Fleet Street, Paseo de la Reforma and the Champs-Elysees Avenue.'
'You can also choose from over 200 of the world's most popular running events such as the City to Surf in Sydney and Western Australia or from the top 10 Marathons around the world like the Boston Marathon.'
'Now you can email your friends to let them know that you have just finished the Honolulu Marathon and warmed down with a casual stroll along Venice Beach!'
Fun Run Trainer has an apparently limitless capacity, as you can create your own routes for anywhere in the world and then sync them to your iPhone. Should be good for when I go running in Mongolia, then.
'The feedback about the application has been amazing. People who have never wanted to own a treadmill are now telling me that they will buy one because now they can practice for events in other states as if they were there. I've even had someone tell me that they will use the app to see if they can run across Australia in a year because the program can track their progress and store their position and statistics.'
Fun Run Trainer is also compatible with exercise bikes.
'The quality of the real time satellite image is amazing whether you are running at 12 km/h or keeping up with the peloton at 80 km/h on your exercise bike. We will also be adding a number of premium cycling events in the near future including the Tour de France and the Giro d'Italia (Tour if Italy).'
For a one off of cost of $5.99, Fun Run Trainer is currently available for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch users on the Apple App Store or through iTunes.
