It is a feature packed workout planner that will help you create and tailor exercise routines based on your goals, and then track your progress day by day. It offers one of the largest exercise databases that I’ve ever seen – over 500 different exercises, each with detailed instructions and information outlining which muscle groups the exercise will target. It comes with a great set of predefined routines that are tailored for specific targets (Such as bulk, cut, shoulders, chest, legs etc). It also has a ton of other functionality such as a BMI calculator and 1RM (Rep Max) system. In short – You need this application!


The app store is brimming with apps designed to record and monitor your route, speed, pace and heart rate whilst running.

Take a break from liking and commenting on your friends' vacation photos, and send them affirmations on Fitocracy. A fitness social network that tracks your progress with points, badges and graphs, the platform allows users to record thousands of activities — from dancing at a party to taking the stairs — and connect with others who have similar fitness goals.

Portable access could be the difference between stopping when you're full, and chowing down on the cake in the Starbucks dessert display.

Don't know where to start? Let your coach help you — virtually. Fitness Trainer automatically creates workout routines based on your body weight and offers exercises that can be done both at and outside of the gym as.

Have your husband take your bikes out of the garage, and plan a family fitness day. Strava finds the best running and cycling routes, introducing you to hidden sites nearby, and the best options when you're out of town.

How many times have you uttered, "that sounds great...if only I had the energy?" Make taking a dance class or weekly volunteering possible with Juice, an app that puts the pep in your step by recording your energy, sleep and exercise levels and posting it on a virtual juice bottle.
