There are thousands of diverse apps that make it easier than ever before to help you get started, stay on track, or reach your fitness goal. Here is a short list of some popular fitness apps that are worth the download.
My Fitness Pal
My Fitness Pal is a smartphone app and website that is used to track diet and exercise. There is a free and premium version of this app, the free one offering basic services like a workout and diet log that tracks calories taken in and expended. The app also allows you to enter your personal goals and helps you stay on track when it comes to meeting those goals. The premium version of the app helps you to track your food’s macronutrients—otherwise known as your carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.
One of the most convenient features on this app is its daily notifications to log in and track your day, to keep you from forgetting. It also tracks the number of days you have logged into the app, an extra accountability check for those who may be competitive. You can also add your friends and update each other of your progress through your individual fitness journeys.
Nike Training Club
Nike Training Club is an app that has structured fitness programs and individual workouts that are of various skill levels. In response to the Coronavirus pandemic, Nike released the premium version with all the strength training, cardio, mobility, and yoga workouts for free to all users. When you sign up for the app, you fill out a questionnaire asking specific questions about how often you work out and what type of activities you enjoy. From there the app will direct you to programs that might be of interest for you. The app will send you daily push notifications reminding you to complete your daily workout.
