Fitness Apps, Which are the Best and Why

Fitness Apps, Fitness Apps, Fitness Apps!

That’s just the world that we live in these days and there is no way in getting around it. Fitness apps can be amazingly helpful to you on your fitness journey, but just like anything else that has a lot of choices, you need to do some research on which ones have the most applicable benefits for you. And with fitness being as big as it is in the world today, there is no surprise that we see in almost every commercial and or on almost every ad just another fitness app coming that promises to deliver the top results in the shortest amount of time.

“So, where do I start?” is a question that you must be asking yourself!

That is a valid question and it is completely understandable to not know which one(s) are the best for you and which one(s) you will end up liking the most when you are constantly inundated with new fitness apps every single day.

However - today is your lucky day because we will save you some time to help you decide which apps are the best ones out there to help you to stay motivated year around via your Smart Phone.

Check out this list of our 5 Favorite Apps that we believe are the best out there:

My Fitness Pal

This is arguably the top and most popular fitness app that exists in the world today. What makes My Fitness Pal so incredible is that it helps you to track your calories for essentially any possible food or beverage that you put in your mouth. Their huge inventory of nutritional items will blow you away and help provide you with a very unique prospective on your approach to eating and the best thing about them is that the app is free of charge for their basic services which is more than enough for the average person but they do have a premium option for services such as providing macronutrient information for those who would like to take a deeper look at their future meal planning and just overall nutrition history.

7 Minute Workout

This is a really cool app because as you can tell from the name of the app, it eliminates the “I don’t have time” excuse and it caters to people who are on the go. A lot of people enjoy the fact that in 7 minutes, they can get a full body workout routine that includes 12 exercises that requires no special equipment and you perform the exercises in 30 second spurts. You can’t really beat this offer if you are someone who would just like to get their workout done and move on with your day.

Map My Fitness

Map My Fitness is a staple for the average fitness enthusiast because it tracks a HUGE variety of activities in and outside of the home including doing things such as yard work. Map My Fitness is really big on just encouraging movement and letting you know that you don’t need to just workout in the traditional sense to receive physical and mental benefits. The metrics that they capture is a motivator for a lot of people because you get to see how hard you are working. Another advantage though that it offers is that it is compatible with many fitness trackers out there such as the Apple Watch or a Fit Bit too.

Charity Miles

This is a very popular app that is really picking up some momentum in the world because it is one of those “feel good” type of apps where it is meant to motivate people through charitable causes and philanthropic behavior. So, if you’re somebody who is motivated by the thought of helping others, then this app is definitely for you because it donates money to the organization(s) of your choice when you use the app to log miles running, walking, or bicycling. The Sponsors for Charity Miles agree to donate a designated amount of money for every mile that you complete and you also have the opportunity to get your family, friends, and co-workers in on it as well so that you can create some real impact with the charitable causes of your choice.

Fit Radio

What would a workout be without some good tunes to feed your soul and keep you energized all the way through? Music has become a key component to help one to get lost in the moment and increase your energy levels to maximize your efforts and the Fit Radio app has emerged as the leader in this category to where it has your back with amazing music for every single type of exercise, workout, and physical activity that you could imagine. It also even customizes mixes especially for you with the special settings that you insert into your profile . With Fit Radio, you will always get the music that YOU feel that you need to help you to reach optimal levels of fitness success.
