Here is my list of the fitness apps I use all the time. By no means an exhaustive list, but a good basis for you to start with. If you have any good suggestions, let me know and I’ll check them out!
My Fitness Pal
Great app for sharing food and keeping an eye on what/how much you’re eating. It can even advise how many calories you should be aiming for in order to lose/gain certain amounts of weight.
If you want to get out and about for a walk, run or cycle this is a great way of recording how far, how fast and how many calories you burnt. You can also share the data with friends, family and your personal trainer!
Everyone knows about eating 5 fruit and veg a day, but not everyone knows that you should aim to do 10,000 steps every day. This app is a great way to keep track of how you’re getting on and for tracking your improvement.
This is a great app that does exactly what it says on the tin. Basically, you can set various intervals timers to take the maths out of the equation when you’re gasping for breath mid workout. I use it for HIIT work mainly, but also for speed work whilst running.
My Heart Rate
This clever little app takes your heart rate just by using the camera. It uses micro contractions in your face to determine the rhythm and rate of the most important muscle in your body. It needs to be used in good lighting conditions, and you need to hold still for a while, but it’s the best HR app I have come across.
