Hey you! Yes, you. How many times have you told yourself you’re going to eat healthier, be more active and get fit?
Yeah, me too. And then life happens. I get busy. I get lazy. I eat what’s convenient, then sit behind a desk all day. My idea of a healthier lifestyle fades into the darkness, where my skinny jeans are hidden.
It seems with new technology and the help of the right apps, we should have fewer excuses for staying on track with our fitness goals. So, as this year closes and another one begins, here are the best fitness apps for Android to get you moving closer to a healthier you!
Best Fitness Apps for Android
Endomondo– This app is free with a premium option for $2.50 a month. I love this app because I can use it to track multiple activities like biking, walking, golfing, kayaking, etc.
Workout Trainer-This fitness app allows you to customize workouts. You can choose areas you want to focus on and watch instructional videos on how to do exercises. Great app for people that want to workout from home without using exercise equipment. Free, but also has a premium service.
Calorie Counter My Fitness Pal–This is by far the most popular app for fitness and weight loss. You can create a personalized diet and exercise program, or just use it to keep track of what you’re eating on a daily basis. Easy to use and compatible with your fitness tracker like FitBit, Garmin Vivofit, Jawbone Up and more.
NexTrack– I admit, I find exercise boring. So this is the perfect app for me. NexTrack turns exercise into a fitness game, and you can earn rewards with mPoints. Plus, if you’re motivated by competing with friends, the leaderboard can motivate you and give you bragging rights.
Runtastic-This app isn’t exclusive to running, you can also track walking, hiking, biking and more. Use the Real Voice Coach to give you personalized feedback. Map workouts in real-time with GPS & monitor exercise progress. Track your goals with the personal workout diary, statistics & graphs. You can also listen to music from Google Play Spotify, Pandora, SoundCloud & more, in the Runtastic app.
