Exercising and living under a healthy routine is more than a fad in the last decade. Many people take their health and the way they exercise seriously, and technology quickly got hooked up to make things easier for us.

Now we can use our smartphones to do our exercises properly, avoid injuries, and even learn to eat healthy!

There are many applications made for us to learn how to create a personalized routine without the need to pay for a trainer, but paying -sometimes- the modest price of a premium app.

To make your life easier, we bring you the best applications that will help you in your new fitness lifestyle!

 

  • Google Fit

 

Like all Google applications, always at the forefront in terms of design and operation. An application that proposes several functions such as the quantification of steps, time of activity and burned calories.

It also allows you to synchronize data from smartbrand, a new technology recently released. Its interface is quite nice and new, allows you to select new targets to increase our performance little by little.

  • FitBit 

 

The apple star application, speaking of fitness, is one of the best for taking care of your health and keeping you in shape. This app allows you to follow your progress very closely, by counting the calories you ingest and those you burn. 

It also allows you to measure the distance you travel and keep an appropriate record of each of the foods you eat, to keep your weight under control. 

One of its most outstanding features is the ability to link it with Apple Watch, to record our activity without having our phone with us. In addition, the company created bracelets with the same name, which allow us to monitor our physical activity.

This app also gives us daily challenges, such as several specific steps or certain foods to eat, to share on our networks or with our friends!

  • Endomondo

 

Have you ever heard of a social network for athletes? If not, it is time to get to know Endomondo. 

This app was born in 2007, and since then it has become quite popular. On their homepage, they always maintain an active timeline, where various athletes publish their achievements and progress, as well as their routes and routines. 

Of course, as a good app for runners, it allows you to mark the route, the distance, the calories burned and even small data such as the degree of inclination and altitude. In addition, it has a new toolbar that provides other important data such as the level of hydration you may have.

Depending on the sport you practice, it has custom options aimed at helping you with that specific activity. It is a very useful application but it allows you to keep in touch with other people who exercise, like you!

  • Sworkit

 

This is an application really intended for all audiences, is one of the few that uses low-impact exercises so that older people can also exercise. We can select the time we have to train and create a quick and appropriate routine, including minutes of rest. 

It comprises four important categories: stretching, strength, yoga, and aerobics. What we like most is its broad spectrum, not limited to aerobic and net pure exercises, such as the gym, but also uses yoga. 

This is an application that creates routines according to the place where we are, so we can also perform them at home, with none machinery. 

The only negative thing to take into account is that to access to its best functions, it is necessary to pay for the subscription plan, however, it is worth it!
