When planning your “actual” fitness resolution for 2019, it can be tough figuring out new and exciting ways to lose weight. With the evolution of technology, and more specifically, apps in our smartphones, it can be tough narrowing down your options! Check out our list below of our top fitness app choices for 2019. After all, who has time to go to a gym now?
Best App for Activity-Sharing
Strava is a social media app for people that are interested in fitness. It has over ten million users, and over one billion fitness activities have logged on the app. This popularity shows the app’s fantastic features. The app gives you the option to share your workout with others, find an answer to questions, and comment and like other people’s work. The app is available for free, with a pro version at £5.99 per month.
Best App for Running
The app Runkeeper is our choice for the best running app. There’s a fantastic bank of information on running, your workouts, and for tracking your runs. You can link the app to your fitness tracker as well, which will pull the information from your runs into the app. There’s also a significant social element to the app. You can share your runs with others and join groups. Over 50 million people use the app, giving you a large user base to communicate with. You can choose between a free version and a monthly subscription of £7.99.
Best Audio App
Aaptive is the best choice for an audio fitness app. There’s access to over 2,500 workouts including running, rowing, strength training, yoga, and more. Also, 30 new classes are being added every week, meaning there’s always a new workout ready for you. A certified fitness trainer leads all classes. There’s the option to download classes if you don’t have access to WiFi. You can get full access to all classes for $14.99 per month, $99.99 for a year, there’s even an option for lifetime access (a steal when you think about gym costs nowadays). Find it here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/aaptiv-1-audio-fitness-app/id869058995?mt=8
Best Cycling App
For those that are most interested in logging their workouts and getting stats back, Cyclemeter is our favorite. After each training session, you’ll get a fantastic amount of data, including a map of your journey, speed stamps, and progression as you train. You can also then sync this data with Strava and log all your workouts there, on top of any other exercise or training you’re doing.
Best for Counting Calories
Myfitnesspal is our best choice for people wanting to count their calories. The app has the option to add in your height, weight, and activity levels, and will give you the number of calories, including the amount of carbs, fat, and protein you need each day. You can add food manually by creating meals in the app and adding them yourself. What’s easier is that you can search for the food you’re eating and select it from the massive database of available food. To make this process even faster, you can use the barcode scanner to scan the meal you’re eating, and then pull in the calories and macronutrients automatically. There’s again a nice social element to the app. You can follow your friends’ diaries, like and comment on their activity, and share progress pictures. You can choose between the free version and the pro version at £7.99 per month.
