LONDON, June 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Fitness technologies specialist Fitbug has launched four new coaching apps as part of its Kiqplan range. 'Your First 5K', '10K Run Ready', 'Bikini Hot' and 'Sun's Out, Guns Out' are available to purchase now, and they are packed with motivational features and expert advice designed to help people get bikini beautiful and fit for a summer of fun.
Health and fitness specialist Fitbug has announced the launch of four new digital coaching programmes for Apple and Android devices. For men who like to look ripped and ready for action on the beach, their prayers have been answered. And women wanting to look their bikini best this year finally have access to a personal trainer who won't complain when they're late for the gym.
There are also two coaching apps for people who want to make it round 5K and 10K courses without needing emergency medical treatment at the finish line. Events such as Parkrun races, Race for Life and GOSH fun runs are growing in popularity throughout the UK and beyond. The new Kiqplan coaching apps prepare people so they can complete these arduous races without the need for a piggy-backs, stretchers or taxis.
Users of these four new Kiqplan programmes will gain access to specialist advice, motivation and performance analysis - effectively giving people the services of a personal trainer in the palm of their hand (without the huge bill). Labelled as '12-week coaching plans', Kiqplan's new digital programmes take users on a health and fitness journey that should end with feelings of confidence, sexiness and gorgeousness.
Kiqplan digital apps are personal trainers, nutritionists and lifestyle gurus all rolled into one. They take information from activity trackers and smart phones, including the number of steps the user takes and the number of calories consumed. Along with the personal information entered by the user, the apps devise very personal training plans with the individual's current physical capabilities in mind.
Users are sent workout videos in line with their fitness levels, and progress reports ensure people are always on track for their 12-week goal. Users who achieve their periodical goals are given a huge slap on the back with a shiny performance badge. But when efforts fall short, a short, sharp kick up the backside is administered - in the form of brutal feedback, modified workout regimes and new targets.
Your First 5K
The 'Your First 5K' coaching app is a 12-week programme designed to get people physically and mentally prepared for the rigours of long-distance running. The app is intuitive, which means everyone from pot-bellied dads to Olympic sprinters can use it.

10K Run Ready
The '10K Run Ready' digital coaching app is a 12-week programme designed to get people into shape and ready to strut around a 10K course with all the confidence and prowess of an Olympic champion.

With summer just around the corner, women of all shapes and sizes are planning their holidays. For women who want to smoulder with sexiness by the sea, there is now a personal trainer available that slips effortlessly into any travel bag.
