My 4 Favorite Fitness Apps

Tuesday, March 10, 2015

In honor of my March fitness month, I decided to share a few of my favorite health and fitness apps with y'all. Personally these apps help keep me on track! I can easily access them on my phone or iPod and take them with me anywhere! If you are the type of person that needs a little extra boost to keep up with your health and fitness goals, I would definitely check them out!

1. MyFitnessPal 

This is my all time best friend of fitness apps. Food intake is the biggest struggle towards success for me. For this app, you set your crucial information (current weight, goal weight, gender, age, activity level ect) to get started. The app will then take all of your information and set a caloric goal for you. Each day you can input your food for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks while trying to stay under your calorie goal.

Within this app you can also track your weight loss progress. Connect with your friends to make it a little more challenging and get some extra encouragement!

2. FitBit or Google Fit

These are actually two different apps, but they basically do the same thing... track your steps! Experts have said that getting 10,000 steps a day will help you to maintain and lose a little bit of weight. It is also the easiest exercise you can do for your body. So I personally use my Fitbit device with the Fitbit app to track my steps, but if you don't have a Fitbit you can track your steps with Google Fit. The only downside is you have to keep your phone on you at all times, if not you can manually input your steps.

3. Nike Running

I've used this app since I was a sophomore in college, but it has really gotten a workout recently with the 10k training. It will track your run and/or walks. You can use the Nike devise to put in your shoe or the GPS in your phone. Either way you decide to use it, it will track your pace, time, and distance. If you use the GPS it will also track the route you travel.

Nike makes running fun by letting you start goals and compete with friends. They also have different levels you achieve when you've hit a certain mileage. I'm currently in the blue level meaning I've logged over 621 miles with Nike+ Running.

4. Nike Training Club

I'm very new to this app, but I can already tell I'm going to like it. You start off by choosing what type of workout you want to do, then choose the actual workout. It shows the amount of time it takes so you know exactly how much time to dedicate to working out.

Once you've selected your workout they have images as well as videos to guide you! I honestly can't wait to use this app more!!

I'm also looking for an awesome yoga app! I would love to get into more yoga, so if you have any suggestions please leave them in the comments!

What are your favorite health and fitness apps?


  1. I LOVE myfitness pal! I go through spurts actually using it, but when I do, I eat so much better! I need to use it this month! I really want to get a fitbit or a jawbone so I can track my steps! Maybe with some birthday money! These are great apps to look into!

  2. I love the Nike Running app! That got me through marathon training for sure. I also loved setting it to tell me every half mile because it was a nice boost!! :)

  3. I absolutely love my Fitbit! And I can't even tell you how many times I would go to eat some kind of junk food and think how I couldn't afford the calories! It has really helped me. If you use it again we should totally connect!

  4. Oh gosh yes! I usually set it for km goals, so I can't wait to hear that I have completed 4 km and it will start to count down my meters!

  5. I love my fitbit app! I always feel so accomplished when I go over my daily steps goal. <3

  6. I know! It is so fun to see all of the little icons turn green as you accomplish your goals!

  7. I love all these apps. That just reminded me I need to load Nike Training Club on my iPad. I love everything about these. Great choices!

  8. I love myfitness pal, I need to get back into using it.

  9. I love my Fitbit!! The Nike Training Club looks good - do you have to pay for it? My favorite Yoga app is FitStar! Its really really good! Free but has some options to add content for a fee

  10. I've been loving my fitness pal! Will have to check out the other ones too!

  11. This is awesome. I have been trying my hardest to find some apps that will help me get on track with my working out. I have hard to time finding the motivation, but maybe using some of these apps will help. I know I need to work on my eating habits, but It is so hard when you love food like me. I'm not fat by any means, but I feel I could be better fit and in shape. :)
