Use Cases

Why TrailMix?

Improve your running cadence

Did you know that cadence and pace aren’t always linked when you’re running? Cadence is the number of steps you take per minute, while pace is the time over distance travelled. In fact, it’s possible to increase cadence while keeping pace the same, a method that can be used to address overstriding. TrailMix makes it easy to learn new running habits that improve your cadence, no matter whether you prefer music or a metronome.

Pump up your workouts

Matching a musical beat to your cadence is highly motivating, whether you’re walking, jogging, or running. Scientific evidence suggests that moving to the beat of music can help you go faster and further. Get ready to work – TrailMix makes it fun! TrailMix also integrates with the Health app so you can see how many days per week you’ve exercised.

Tempo control for any type of exercise

Although TrailMix can automatically detect locomotion, this feature isn’t required to use the app. Simply adjust the tempo, either by dragging the speedometer needle or by pressing the plus and minus buttons, and you can sync the beat to match any physical activity, including biking, dancing, and fitness classes.


“For anyone working out to some techno (or any other) music, it makes a huge difference when the song playing resonates with the groove of your workout. It’s workout nirvana, so to speak. This is why a lot of developers work on this gait detection and auto-beat-analyzers. But as far as I’ve seen, TrailMix leads the pack in near-perfection.”


“TrailMix has made my training exercise regiment a whole lot more fun, while being practical and effective at making me better. But again, so fun and serene for outdoor activities. Highly recommended!”
