NHS Couch to 5K Nears One Million Downloads During Lockdown

Public Health England’s (PHE) Couch to 5k fitness app has reached nearly one million downloads in the months since coronavirus first hit the UK.

From March to the end of June, the NHS-backed fitness tool was downloaded 858,000 times, compared to 448,000 downloads in 2019 – a 92 percent increase.

The app generates a beginner’s running plan, with three runs per week, for people who have little or no running experience. It includes guided commentary and allows users to track their progress.
