Getting fit is a lifestyle that many people today have been working on to adopt. But with distractions like work and some non-physically stimulating activities like browsing the internet, we often find ourselves making excuses on why we cannot commit ourselves to achieving the build that we desire. Gadgets and on-the-go devices could be one of these distractions. The good news however is that, while technology could be a convenient source of laziness, itâs also a great medium for health buffs to get back on track. Take mobile applications for example. There are so many apps out there that offer useful tools when it comes to being fit. So if you are into fitness yet couldnât seem to detach from your smart phone, here are the types of health and fitness related apps that you should start downloading.

For Your Outdoor Activities
Cardiovascular exercises like walking and running are fundamental in staying in shape. For those who never miss a week without going for a run, finding a good route and mapping your development are now made easy with apps specially designed for the outdoor enthusiast. iMapMyRun for instance provide useful information like where to find running routes, where to locate nearby runners to run with, and what to eat before and after working out while logging the calories burned. There is also its walk counterpart, the iMapMyWalk, which allows you to keep track of how far you have walked and how many kilojoules you have burnt while doing so. These features, including one that allows you to share your updates with friends, can also be enjoyed with Just Start Walking, another app. They are available on Android and iPhone. If you are training for a short marathon, Personal Running Trainer and 5K Running are great apps that you can also try.
For Your Strict Diet
Monitoring your diet is a key factor in making your workout more effective. Luckily, there are apps that make you monitor what sort of food you are feeding your body and how much itâs affecting your diet. By simply entering your age, gender, weight loss goals, Calorie Counter & Diet Tracker by My Fitness Pal will help you reach your weight loss goals in your requested time frame. Itâs like a food diary that tracks the amount of exercise you do. Another diary type of app is MyNetDiary, which allows you to record food portions across a variety of serving sizes. And when you are ready to dig in, there are apps like Nutrition Menu that ensures that your meal fits into your diet by helping you track what you eat, from carb and calorie, which is ideal when you are controlling medical conditions like diabetes.
For Your Sweating Out Plan
Proper diet goes perfectly well with effective workout routines. If you are following a fitness program like YOR Health or one that is specially tailored for you by an expert, make sure you are executing them right. But more importantly, also make it a point to track your development. For beginners, Fitness Builder is a handy app that allows you to choose from a wide array of over 5,600 exercise images and videos. Itâs downloadable on iPhone and Android. Sit Ups Pro, another app, assists you to stay motivated when it comes to meeting your target number of crunches. Simply enter your age, weight and fitness level, hold your smartphone above your chest and get crunching as it will keep track the amount of sit ups set for you.
For Your Beverage Cravings
Drinking could often get in the way of being fit. Whether itâs a milkshake high in sugar or a devilish can of beer, staying disciplined when it comes to beverages is a must. Opt for healthier drinks like smoothies provided by Smoothie Recipes, an app that contains 110 delicious and healthy smoothie recipes. It also includes tips on how to make your own mocktails while displaying the calorie content. To avoid alcoholic beverage, Drink Apps not only keeps a daily track of the amount of alcoholic drinks youâre imbibing, but also calculates the effects of those drinks on your waistline. Now thatâs a great guilt-trip to start with. Both apps are free on iPhone, iPad and Android.
