Just input the amount of calories you want to burn and TrailGen will find the right track near you. Turning your calories to distance, to time and to speed.
If you have limited time, TrailGen will generate a path based on your time criteria, making your daily fitness an enjoyment and a pleasure.
Ensuring your safety is a must. Once you begin your track, TrailGen will warn you if you need to take a torch with you, should nightfall come in the middle of your walk.
TrailGen is an app that makes it easier to get out and get active.
You enter how much time you have free and then from your location it will provide you with a walk that will have you back in time (taking into account the drive time and your walking speed). For safety it keeps an eye on the daylight left and lets you know if you need to turn around or if you need to take a torch because it will be getting dark before you complete the walk.
An alternative way the application works is to find you a walk that will burn off a specific amount of food or calories. Two burgers for lunch? Need to lose one of them? Let TrailGen give you the local walk to do just that.
