• adidas Training and android 7

    It’s time to say goodbye, we’re dropping android 7!

    Technology advances rapidly, with new devices coming out every year, it sometimes can be hard to keep up with the speed and to still provide a great app experience. 

    Hence, in order to provide you with the best user experience, we have decided to discontinue supporting android 7.

    Due to that, we will no longer be able to fix any issues that are reported on android devices running android 7 or lower.

    What does that mean for you? 

    • In order to guarantee a smooth app experience, simply update to the newest available android version.
    • If your device can’t run a higher android version you should still be able to use the App. However, we won’t be able to fix any reported bugs or issues within the adidas Training App on android 7 devices.

    Note: Once you remove the adidas Training app from your phone you will not be able to download it on your android 7 device again.

  • Privacy Settings

    Follow the steps below to edit your Privacy Settings:

    • Tap the “More” tab

    If you select the “Only me” privacy setting, only your first and last name will be visible to other users.

    The main difference between your current training plan and the new training plan is the following:

    The workouts in the training plans 6-Week Shape Up, Toned Abs in 6 Weeks, and Fit and Strong in 3 Weeks include duration based exercises. 

    So like in the Workout Creator, it will say 40 seconds of Push-Ups for example, instead of 40 repetitions of Push-Ups.

    6-Week Shape Up: 

    Whether you want to feel fitter and healthier, or shape up for a special event: this 6-week plan is ideal for you!

    Fit & Strong in 3 Weeks:  

    A short plan if you’re short on time — this will help you shape up quickly and improve your fitness level in just 3 weeks.

    Toned Abs in 6 Weeks (Female): 

    The best exercises if you want to strengthen your midsection and define your core muscles.

    The 12-Week Body Transformation and Push Your Limits training plans will include repetition based workouts.

    6 Weeks to Six Pack (Male):

    The best exercises if you want to strengthen your midsection and define your core muscles.

    The 12-Week Body Transformation and Push Your Limits training plans will include repetition based workouts.

    12-Week Body Transformation: 

    Whether you want to build muscle, lose weight, or just commit to getting fit, this plan will give you the results you want. 

    Push Your Limits: 

     Already pretty fit, but you want to go further? This is the full-body plan to make it happen. 

    Running Strong:

    Cross-training to improve your running.

    Strength training is a great way to take your running performance to the next level, prevent injuries and add variety to your fitness routine.

    Have we piqued your interest? You can start one of the new training plans at any time, you just need to either finish or quit your current training plan.

    How is my progress displayed?

    On the left, you will always see the original picture, and on the right, the current photo. You can also switch the current picture for another one by tapping “Take a New Pic” at the top. Tap the picture you would like to use from your photo gallery and then “Set” at the top. If you don’t see the “Set” button, the latest photo is set already.

  • Cardio Goal

    Set a Cardio Goal for yourself in the “Plan” tab of your adidas Training app. All the activities (running, walking, biking, hiking, etc.) you track with your adidas Running app are synced automatically.

    The Cardio Goal can be set at the end of every week together with the number of training sessions for the following week. Just set the number of minutes you want to spend on cardio training in addition to your adidas Training workouts.

  • How do I count repetitions when doing the exercises?

    When you are doing mountain climbers, walking lunges or punches, each movement counts as one repetition. For instance, mountain climber right 1, mountain climber left 2, mountain climber right 3, and so on…

    Please note the difference from an exercise like Up-Downs. Here you can count one repetition like this:

    • Start in High-Plank position
    • Lower your left arm down to a Low-Plank position
    • Lower your right arm down to a Low-Plank position
    • Bring your left arm back up to a High-Plank position
    • Bring your right arm back up to a High-Plank position
  • Is my existing Premium Membership valid for all the features in the adidas Training app?

    Yes, if you are a Premium Member and are already enjoying all the benefits of the adidas Runtastic app portfolio, then all the standalone workouts in the Workout Collection, all the training plans, the Workout Creator and the Nutrition and Health tips within the adidas Training app are available for you as well. There is no need to buy another Premium membership.

  • What is the Training Plan and how does it work?

    Your personalized Training Plan will be created for you after you provided responses to three initial questions. The first part is about your current activity and fitness level. Then you let us know how often you exercise and how fit you evaluate yourself to be, followed by your current weight and height.

    Now you are ready to get started on your first workout in Week 1!  

    You are able to give feedback on your experience every week (and let us know, for example, if the workout was way too difficult or too easy) and your plan for the following week will be adjusted based on your performance and feedback.

    After every week, you are able to choose whether you would like to do two, three, four or five workouts the following week. If you choose to do five workouts, it is important to complete all of them. Therefore, always make sure that you have enough time for the workouts you commit to for the following week, as you cannot change the number during the week.

    Your Training Plan can start on any day you choose. This way you can easily fit your plan into your daily schedule. You are only able to do one workout per day in order to give your muscles some time to recover.

  • How do I get my Training Plan?

    You can access all the Training Plans as soon as you are a Premium Member. If you already have a Premium Membership, just log in to the adidas Training app with the same account and you can start right away.

    Not yet a Premium Member?

    No problem. You can purchase your Premium Membership within the app or on runtastic.com. Just be sure to log in with the same account that you’re using with your adidas Training app.

    Note: It is not possible to follow multiple Training Plans at the same time. 

  • How do I skip the warm-up?

    We highly recommend that you do not skip the warm-up. This is a crucial part of your training and helps ensure that your muscles are ready to train and you do not get injured. If you want to skip it because you already did a different warm-up, you can simply disable the warm-up before you start your workout.

    To deactivate the warm-up permanently, tap “More” on your tab bar  and toggle off “Warm-up.”

  • What are Standalone Workouts?

    Standalone Workouts are workouts you can do in addition to your Training Plan or your regular fitness routine.

    Just tap “Workouts” on your tab bar and select “Standalone Workouts”. The workouts are listed in order of intensity and get harder the farther down the NATO alphabet you go. As you progress, you’ll soon be able to reach “X-ray.” You can do the same Standalone Workout multiple times to track improvements.

    Before starting your Standalone Workout, make sure to watch the exercise videos so you are adequately prepared. The videos must be downloaded first. You can tap each video to start the download or tap the icon in the top right corner to download all the videos at once. As soon as the video is downloaded, just tap it to watch it as many times as you would like.

    While all standalone workouts can be done indoors, you’ll find two special outdoor workouts in your adidas Training app, both of which you can do without any equipment in less than 30 minutes. Just look for the workouts marked with the adidas logo.

  • Do I need an internet connection for the workouts?

    No, you do not need to be connected to the internet during your workouts with the adidas Training app, as the app is using information stored on your phone. 

    An internet connection is important when you are streaming training videos. We recommend using a wireless network to save data volume. 

    After your training the workouts are synchronized with your adidas account. An internet connection is necessary to synchronize your data.

  • Where can I view my history?

    To view your training history, follow the steps below:

    • Open the adidas Training app
    • Tap “Progress” on your tab bar
    • Your most recent workouts will be displayed at the top of the screen. Select “See More” to view every training session completed with the adidas Training app
  • I am not a Premium Member yet. Can I still use the adidas Training app?

    If you are not a Premium Member yet, you are still able to use the adidas Training app.

    You’ll have access to the basic features like the Workout Creator, exercises in the Workout Collection, the instructional exercise videos and some of the different plans we offer.

    We encourage you to become a Premium Member and enjoy all the benefits, such as our 12-week total-body transformation plan, that the adidas Training app (and the adidas Running app) has to offer!
