You might spend a lot of idle time sitting around and staring at your phone. While it can be hard to stay active when there is so much great entertainment at your fingertips, your phone can also be your best friend when it comes to exercising and getting in shape. The key is to find the right app to track your exercises and motivate yourself to stay healthy. Here are three great apps to consider.
MapMyRun is a helpful website and app that actually has a number of fitness, calorie counting, and diet assistance features. MapMyRun is an especially great app for — you guessed it — recording your runs. It will give you a detailed analysis of each run, with everything from elevation gain to calories burned. You can set goals, like how many calories you want to burn on a run, and the app will help you create a run that ensures you reach them.
Cyclemeter is probably the most popular app for tracking bike rides. It is highly detailed and easy to use. Not only will it track calories burned and distance, it also clocks your maximum and average speeds. It is a fun and useful app, and it can also be helpful to mountain bikers who ride trails that aren’t clearly marked. If you are trying to re-ride a particular route that is not clearly marked, you can refer to your ride log and recall exactly which section you did in the past. This way you are less likely to get lost, but more likely to ride the best trail sections.
Endomondo is a simple app that can be used to track runs and bike rides. It is well-liked because it has a user-friendly interface. It is definitely simpler than Cyclemeter and MapMyRun and many prefer it because it is so easy to use. If you’re looking for a good starter app, begin here. What’s more, an app like this is good whether you’re at the girls’ gym or outside in nature when the sun is shining.
All three of these apps are a great supplement to anyone, whether you workout five times a week or go for a jog when you remember.— all you have to do is push the download button to get started. For more ideas on staying fit and active, talk to the pros. You’ll be moving in no time.
