Best smartphone apps for fitness and training
Friday 25 February 2011
On February 18, health news website MyHealthNewsDaily released their top picks for smartphone apps designed to get you fit.
If you're relying on your smartphone to help you track your physical activity, look for apps such as RunKeeper Pro (free on iPhone and Android), which uses GPS to track your runs or walks. The app measures distance, time, pace, calories burned, and heart rate.
Also: AllSport GPS (iOS, Android and BlackBerry) uses the phone's GPS system to track runs, bikes, and walks, in addition to changes in elevation and speed. The iMapMy app (Android, iPhone and BlackBerry) is another top pick, letting users link their workouts to Facebook and Twitter while they track progress via GPS. For those looking for a straightforward pedometer app, check out the All-in Pedometer for the iPhone.
If you're hoping to get some motivation from your smartphone app, try CardioTrainer, which comes with a GPS log, tracks your workouts, and can play motivational messages (as well as your favorite playlist) while you sweat.
Or for true beginners, try Couch to 5K, which designs a training schedule for your first five-kilometer run. More experienced fitness fans can check out Men's Health Workout app (iPhone), which includes 23 pre-loaded workouts and more than 150 available exercises.
