Be motivated, be fit and be optimistic with these exercise-tracking apps. If you have an iPhone, you can download these apps and find easy routines and workouts for yourself.
The apps will send you statistics and graph that will allow you to track your regime.
Runtastic has been building out its fitness-tracking and coaching empire in recent times; pushing to target those who like to work-out at home too.
While I still switch between a handful of GPS fitness apps from time to time, Runtastic is one I always keep coming back to.
Aesthetically, Strava is a beautifully designed mobile app. confusingly though; it separates out its offering into two individual apps – one branded as ‘Running’ and one as ‘Cycling’. But within each version, you can stipulate whether you’re cycling, running, walking or doing any other kind of activity, so for all intents and purposes they’re the same app.
Nike has set out its stall to ‘own’ the fitness space, and it’s done a pretty impressive job of it, what with its own ‘Nike Fuel’ metric and Fuelbands.
Moreover, Nike+ Running has become one of the most popular apps for runners, and it’s easy to see why.
It’s beautifully designed, very easy to use and doesn’t offer too much in terms of bells-and-whistles. The second you launch the app, you’ll see a synopsis of previous stats, and you can get going by tapping the screen once.
Keep a track of your runs, cycling or any other activity through RunKeeper app. You can get earlier planned routes or can enter your own. The app will give planned workouts. You can even feed your own workouts. The app will give you audio updates on calorie count, pace, speed, mileage et al. You can attach your Bluetooth to get know about your heartbeats. You can upgrade by paying $ 9.99 – $29.99 for other added features of receiving training sessions.
Last, but definitely not least, is Endomondo, which wins plaudits for its uber-clean and neat design.
There’s something about the interface that just feels very uncluttered, even though it’s packed with information. A giant ‘Play’ button kicks things off, while you can view your history which includes an overview of the basic stats, as well as splits. You can also open any music on your device – and from Spotify – directly from within the app.
The basic version of Endomondo is free, but $2.99 a month or $19.99 a year lets you remove the ads and get a slew of additional features, including motivational back-slaps.
