Nowadays it seems our smart phones are never too far out of reach, so why not use them to help build and maintain a healthy, active lifestyle? There are lots of great fitness apps out there and we’ve done some research into our faves. Whether you’re looking to track your caloric intake, exercise regime, learn a new fitness routine or even build some friendly competition with your friends, we’re pretty sure there’s an app for it! Here are our top fitness app picks:
Under Armour Record
As one of the top training apps, Under Armour Record helps you track everything from exercise and steps to calories and weight. It connects directly with other popular apps (like FitBit and My Fitness Pall) to keep all your results in one convenient place. And unlike many other fitness apps, it can easily track a wide variety of exercises from weight training, pushing a stroller, walking the dog, yoga and swimming.
This one-stop app lets users analyze their workouts and share their fitness activities with friends, as well as set up challenges. We love that you can reach out to all your friends and challenge them to see who can bounce on their Springfree Trampoline the longest. Under Armour Record will help you keep track of your progress as you reach your fitness goals.
Nike+ Training Club
Whether you’re a beginner or practically a pro, Nike+ Training Club has more than 100 workouts crafted by master trainers to help you get in shape. This popular app lets you select your fitness goals and level and offers up a variety of easy to follow workouts. Stick to your goals and make your workouts consistent by creating a 4 week workout plan that incorporates the best of Nike’s workouts. By joining Nike’s training club you’ll be well on your way to getting in better shape and building up your endurance to become a better Springfree jumper.
Want to get in shape but don’t know where to start? Sworkit is the perfect app for when you’re short on time and don’t have a fitness plan in mind. Simply pick from the style of exercise you’re looking for and the duration of your workout and this app will do the rest. The high-intensity bodyweight workouts are easy to follow along using their high-quality videos and the countdown clock keeps you motivated to finish. Once you’ve gotten the hang of the app, you can use it to create your own custom workouts. Whether you want to get your heart pumping or relax and stretch, this app will help you stay active even when you’re busy.
If you’ve got a heart rate monitor and want to get the most out of it, then Digifit iCardio can help. Pair this app with your heart rate monitor and track your runs, bicycle rides or Springfree bouncing. Not only does this app record heart rate, it also records time, pace and distance. Add additional components with in-app purchases to better decipher your workout and get an in-depth analysis of your health and fitness level. Digifit iCardio will you give you the most accurate results when it comes to calories burned by letting you see your progress during your favourite classes and workouts.
My Fitness Pal
They say that abs are made in the kitchen. We’re not sure about that, but we do know that this super helpful app allows you to track what and how much you eat, and how many calories you burned through daily physical activity. My Fitness Pal has the largest database of food and integrates perfectly with other apps to let you know how many calories you have left to eat in a day. By forcing you to input your food choices, this app will ensure you stay accountable and on track wherever you are.
While there seems to be millions of fitness apps out there, when you’re choosing remember to look for one that works for your lifestyle and helps you reach your personal fitness goals. But after all is said and done, even if you don’t find the perfect app, just get outside and have some fun!
