For indoor activities, simply enter your workout results and Runtastic will analyze the figures.

The 6 Week Training app, or program in this case, aids users in their journey to achieving the Coca-Cola figure everyone seems to be longing for. It includes training exercises such as Hundred Pushups, Two Hundred Situps, Two Hundred Squats, Hundred Fifty Dips and Twenty Pullups.

The app can also turn your device into an SOS light beacon. When you’re lost in a strange place, the GPS-enabled app can send emails to your nearest contacts.
