January is a high time for people making plans to get healthier and fitter. Some people will join a new gym while others will try a new class that they have heard about. And then there will be some that will do both. If you are like me, you like to keep track of it all. Thanks to technology, there are tons of fitness apps out there to help you do that.
Exercise and health is easily accessible at our fingertips through the use of apps on our phones and tablets. Journals, trackers, tips, statistics, graphs and even tracked miles and distances by GPS are possible.
Of course, everyone loves their gym classes but not everyone has the time or money to get to the gym. One thing that I have learned is working out does not need to or have to be expensive.
So here are some great options in fitness apps, I have used or still use, that can help you meet your fitness goals.
Some of my favorite fitness apps
You can do a lot with MyFitnessPal.
|Nike Training Club
Get expert guidance from Nike master trainers. Choose the amount of visual guidance you get in every workout and use the audio cues to take your eyes off the screen. This fitness app has more than 100 strength, endurance or mobility-focused workouts designed by Nike athletes and trainers. You can enter and record other activities you do, like running, tennis, etc. and keep track of your fitness life.
|Tabata Stopwatch Pro
This app helps you keep track of your work and rest periods during workouts. I use it to keep track of tabatas (ex: 20 seconds of squats/10 seconds of rest) or any other type of HIIT workout.
Interval timer can be customized to any length and has different beeping noises for work and rest. It is the perfect workout companion.
|Couch to 5K by Active Network
If you’ve ever wanted to get into running, but don’t know how to start – this is the perfect app for you. Sometimes people start off too fast and run too hard at first – that’s why most people rebel against running! I used this app to help train a few ladies for their first 5Ks. It is the perfect training app because it increases the intensity as you go. You also only have to spend 20-30 minutes, three times a week for nine week to be ready for your first 5K.
Follow your training and activity with the Polar Flow App and instantly see your achievements. With this app you can see all of your training and activity data on your phone on the go, and sync them wirelessly to the Polar Flow web service.
|Rock My Run
This app has some awesome features to offer such as adjustable bpm (adjusts music so that it can sync with your steps or heart rate), DJ-Curated music that is up-beat mixes created by current popular DJ’s and unlimited genre stations personalized to you including Pop, Rock, EDM, Dubstep, Oldies, Country and Hip-Hop.
This one may not seem like a health and fitness app because technically it isn’t. However, I use it every day my cardio is indoors. It makes the time on the treadmill, bike and stairmaster seem less torturous. I am loving one of the features of the new update that allows you to download movies without using your data. You don’t have to worry about having WiFi because the movie is right there on your phone to watch.
So there you have it. These are the apps that have been helping me along my fitness journey.
