12 Minute Run iPhone App
The 12 Minute Run (Cooper Test) is a commonly used test of aerobic fitness, in which you run as far as you can in 12 minutes. The test is usually conducted around a measured track so that the distance is easily calculated. Using the features of the phone, these apps remove the need for such a track, as the app can use GPS technology to track the runner and calculate the distance covered. Therefore, you can run wherever you like and the total distance will still be calculated. Using the values of age and sex, your results will be calculated giving you a rating and predicted VO2max score.
