Bored of making optimistic New Year’s resolutions, only to give a couple of days or weeks later? You’re not alone.

Thankfully for you, we have done some digging, and gathered together the best fit-tech out there, that will guide you on your way to reaching your goals next year.

The idea behind C25K is simple and brilliantly effective. The aim is to get people who have never run before, off the couch and getting fit. With an easy program aimed specifically at beginners, by the end of the eight weeks, participants will be able to achieve their goal of running 5k. The workouts are 30-40 minutes long and incorporate a mixture of walking and running, making it feasible and bearable even for the most run-phobic of us all. All these features are accompanied by a handy audio coach, getting you through those tough moments.
