2016 is in full swing, and people everywhere are knee-deep in their respective New Year's resolutions. According to a University of Scranton study, though, only eight percent of these people will successfully achieve their goals.

The reasons for failure are widespread, but one common mistake among resolution-setters is not asking for help.

Whether you want to lose those last 10 pounds or learn a new language in 2016, Mashable recently released a list of 19 mobile apps designed to help increase your chance of resolution success.

First on the list is ACTIVE's Couch to 5K® mobile app, a training program designed to prepare you to run your first (or first in a while) 5K race. In only 30 minutes a day, three days a week, any couch potato can be starting line-ready for a 5K of their choosing.

Lance Ulanoff, chief correspondent and editor-at-large at Mashable, appeared on the LIVE with Kelly and Michael show to discuss the story and mentioned Couch to 5K right off the bat (0:41 in). Check out the video to hear what was said about the app that's been used by hundreds of thousands of people to go from couch potato to runner.
