Top 5 Fitness Apps

Top 5 Fitness Apps

Encouraging a fit and healthy lifestyle is never a bad thing. There are loads of apps available that can help us on our fitness journey.

Here is a look at some of the top fitness apps on the market:

Garmin Fit

Turning your smartphone into a training device, functions on the Garmin Fit include allowing you to upload your workout to the Garmin Connect service for analysis.

You can add a heart rate with a wireless ANT+ sensor (iPhone only) bike pedaling cadence (Garmin cadence sensor required), or treadmill running stats with a Garmin foot pod. I tested the Garmin Fit app on some road bike rides.

Cost: £0.69

Available on iOS and Android

Fitocracy

Fitocracy is your very own personal trainer and will create your very own workouts and create a fitness assessment for you.

A customized nutrition plan can also be created.

Cost: Free

Available on iOS and Android

Couch to 5K

As any wannabe runner knows, 5K can seem like a marathon at first, but take it slowly and anything is possible. With Couch to 5K following just three training sessions a week, you’ll be walking and then running before you know it.

Cost: Free

Available on iOS and Android

Pocket Yoga

Stretching in a roomful of people isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, so pocket yoga makes it easy to do yoga in the privacy of your own home.

Cost: £1.89-£1.99

Available on iOS and Android

MyFitnessPal

This is a great one to track how many calories you’ve consumed without having to do the counting yourself. The scanning facility means you can scan food packaging bar codes and it will calculate how many calories you should be, and are, consuming.

Cost: Free

Available on iOS and Android
