“If exercise could be packed in a pill, it would be the single most widely prescribed and beneficial medicine in the nation.”

ABS for Individuals and Race Directors


Designed for tracking and safety.


Our FREE live tracking app lets you share your training runs and live events with friends and family. The app provides real-time information like run time, pace, distance, elevation and more. You can enable tracking and share with only the people you choose or display on our event screen for our spectators to view. A perfect tool for your friends to meet you at the finish line!


COMING SOON: We are adding new features which will include a patent pending system called H.E.L.P (aka / Home Emergency Launch Pad). This will allow a runner to send a message to the race director during events or a friend during training that you need help. You will have 10 seconds to disable the alert to prevent the app from calling 911. If not done this will trigger an emergency 911 call and send your GPS coordinates to the local authorities.
