It seems like these days in the world of iPhones and smart phones there is an app for everything. When it comes to exercise and nutrition these apps may be the key to help keep you accountable, but how do you weed out what works when there are so many choices out there. On this Fit at Five Adam Tielinen of OA Performance Center shows us some of his favorites.
If you are looking for an app that helps you lose some extra pounds this free app may be for you. After entering your weight and how many pounds you want to lose it will give you an allotted amount of calories you need to take in that day. You can track your meals and look up recipes. A big plus with this app is you can scan a product barcode and all the nutrition facts will automatically load for you. Your profile is private, but you are able to connect with friends so they can hold you accountable and cheer you on.
PUSH UP WARRIOR
If mastering the art of a push up is your thing this app will give you access to a whole library of different variations for just .99 cents. You can search for a certain push ups, take a warrior challenge, or spin the wheel for the push up of the day. Push up levels are broken down to levels easy, medium, or hard. Each push up also offers a demo video if you are unsure how to do it.
This app comes free with all iPhones. Nike free shoes come with a space in the sole of the shoe that you can place a GPS tracking chip. This app allows you to pick a custom workout, choose a goal distance, or goal for calories burned. You can also set your playlist to your run.
A free GPS app that helps you track more activities than just running. This is a great app if you are interval training. The phone tracks the time and the distance you have run and lets you know when to run and when to walk. Like the Nike app this can also be connected to your Facebook and Twitter accounts so your friends can also see your activities.
