On the surface, FitRadio is just like any other streaming music service. You select the genre you want to listen to, and the app starts off DJ mixed playlist of songs in that genre. Behind the scenes, the service only uses music that’s designed to help you stay active and engaged with your workout. Each playlist is mixed and designed by a DJ to actually carry you through your exercise routine, with more uptempo tracks in the right places to help you gear up at the beginning and push through the end.
Since the goal is to give you workout music, all of the available genres are upbeat in nature. There are seven different flavours of electronic, four different flavours of rock, and four “mainstream” genres, including top 40, hip hop, country and “party.” Tap any one of them to start a playlist immediately.
FitRadio is free, but ad-supported. Upgrading to FitRadio Premium will set you back $US3/month or $US36/year, strips out the ads, and gives you access to more playlists. If you think the service might be for you, definitely try it for free before sinking money into it.
