Fitness Apps to Make 2018 Your Most Active Year Yet

freestocks-org-248125

Whether you’re intimidated by the thought of starting a fitness practice, or you’re just interested in tracking your progress for one you’ve already started, there are plenty of apps to help. Here are a few I think are worth checking out.

MyFitnessPal
iOS, Android

Do you know exactly how much food you’re consuming and how much you’re moving daily, on average? Without getting a grasp on these two key components, working on your health and fitness will feel like a shot in the dark. MyFitnessPal will allow you to track both the calories you’re consuming along with the types of exercising you are doing in order to maximize your progress.

Runkeeper
iOS, Android

Whether you’re running to lose weight, train for a race, or simply to challenge yourself, RunKeeper will let you pick a run plan specific to you, send reminders based on the running schedule you set, and track your progress every run you take. You’ll no longer have an excuse when it comes to lacing up your tennis shoes and stepping outside.

Fitbit App
iOS, Android

If you want to take a holistic approach to getting healthy, the Fitbit app is the way to go. You’ll be able to track and log everything — all-day activity, food, sleep, water intake – monitor your progress, and make sure you’re on track to reach your goals. Even if you don’t have a Fitbit, you can still use some of the free features, like tracking your daily steps and distance (you just have to be carrying your phone).

J&J Official 7-Minute Workout

I am a huge proponent of finding a way to work out even when you have a small window of time and no workout equipment. That is precisely what this app will help you do — squeeze in your workout even when you’re on the go and can’t hit the gym. You can pick from workouts ranging from 7-32 minutes and receive additional instruction on form when necessary.
