Best Workout Apps

So you mustered the energy to work out, got dressed, left the house, got to the gym, hopped on a treadmill, walked for a few minutes, hopped off of the treadmill, and froze. What do I do next? What body part should I train? What machine should I use? How many reps should I do? And most importantly, how do I know if my workout is working out for me? To answer those questions and more, you need a little help, be it from a trainer or a guide. Luckily, a trainer can be affordable, pocket-sized, and available anywhere and anytime. Here are some of the best workout apps you need to download now for more efficient training and better tracking of your fitness progress.

1. Fitbit
If you have any friends who are trying to get in shape, you may have seen a post or two by them tracking their progress on the Fitbit app. This app is great if you want to track how many steps you took, miles you walked or ran, floors you climbed, your heart rate, and even your sleeping patterns.

2. CycleCast
This is perfect if you have a bicycle at home or want to use one at the gym but can’t find the motivation to use it. Download CycleCast and get a 30-Day free trial with a world-class trainer. You can also listen to hit music while you exercise.
