Fitness trackers and apps can give your exercise routine a boost. The wearable trackers and downloaded apps worked best when they provided feedback in progress, goal settings and other supportive features. Also, continuously monitoring your progress and receiving feedback from an app can significantly change overall physical activity.
Even small changes can have a meaningful impact on health; for example, the extra 1,000 steps could have significant health benefits, including a lower risk for heart disease, diabetes and other illnesses.
With apps and trackers, some feedback and accountability tend to boost results. Here are five fitness apps that can help get you moving and back into shape.
7 Minutes Workout
A fitness app for busy people offers a quick and easy way to fit exercise into everyone's life, and it gets the job done. There are 72 exercises and 22 workouts that can be modified to create over 1,000 variations. Workout duration ranges from 7 to 31 minutes, with instructional videos that explain how to do each exercise correctly. And most important, it is free, and no equipment is required.
Simple setup, profound results. Beyond Step Challenges, the Walker Tracker app can track staff health metrics like nutrition, meditation & mindfulness minutes, sleep, and more.
This is one of my favourites because your good efforts are going to a good cause will. For every mile you run or walk, $0.25 is donated to the charity of your choice. It may sound too good to be true, but it's not.
At the same time, It keeps track of how far you walked or ran and how much money you raised, and they offer a choice of charities to donate to, and you can choose more than one.
Aaptive offers tons of workouts for every fitness level ranging from running, cycling, and elliptical to stretching, yoga, and strength training.
You can not get bored with this app since it offers over 30 new classes every week, and it also provides structured programs to help you achieve specific goals. You get access to a supportive, inspiring community.
Aaptive is a paid app; prices go from $14.99 per month to 99.99 annually, and they offer you a 100 percent money-back guarantee for the annual plan within 30 days.
The secret sauce may be the instructors — many of whom are celebrity trainers. FitOn offers a wide variety of at-home workout classes — from the stretch, HIIT, yoga and guided meditations — and for all skill levels, so no matter your fitness goals, you can find a class to help you reach it and never get bored.
