Fitness can be a struggle, full stop. Not everyone has the ability to count calories or track their daily steps, and some people just want to become more active. Today we’ll be looking at a couple of the best fitness tracking apps for you.
This app tracks your walks, runs, and most other forms of physical activity. This is perfect if you’re one to exercise by walking, even if you’re a daily runner or wanting to build up to running a marathon. This app is GPS based with a community of over 50 million users. Using the GPS, you can discover new routes to take on your workout and can always keep your workout interesting.
If your idea of working out is a lovely stroll, or you’re wanting to keep up your fitness target, RunKeeper can plan your route so that you get the most out of your day. With the dashboard providing training plans fit to you, all you have to do is answer a few questions and there’s a custom plan all ready for you, or you can pick from one of their ready made schedules.
Strava is a place where you can connect to other athletes across the world. There’s something to be said for social training, and with Strava’s tracking ability, as well as their motivating community, this is definitely an incredible pick. This community is full of cyclists, runners, and pros that record their activities daily. The app’s tracking provides the key statistics to keep track of such as speed, pace, distance, elevation gained, as well as calories burned during and after exercising.
Their platform allows you to share your highlights with the rest of your community, post stories and photos that showcase the highlights of your run or ride! The best part about this app is the encouragement and motivation that comes with the comments or kudos. Maybe start a little bit of a friendly competition to see if you can reach the top time on the leaderboard!
