With so many exercise and fitness apps available, it can be hard to choose the best one for you. Some apps are endorsed by celebrities, many offer diet and nutrition advice, and a few claim to provide an all-in-one solution with mindfulness and meditation programs. There’s a lot to consider.
If you’re looking through the iOS App Store or Google Play Store for the perfect solution to help you kick-start your exercise regime, here are some features you should look for in the best fitness apps.
1. Apps That Offer You a Variety of Exercises
One of the most off-putting things about exercise for many is the element of boredom. Repetitive routines will quickly start to annoy you. Worse still, you risk overworking some muscle groups while neglecting others.
2. A Personalized Fitness Program That Tracks Your Progress
Of course, everyone has individual fitness goals, and your needs will differ from those of other app users. That’s why the best exercise apps start with a questionnaire that allows you to enter key information about your starting point and fitness goals. In return, you receive a personalized training program for your fitness journey. So many brilliant exercise apps offer this feature that you can disregard any apps that don’t customize their programs to suit you.
3. Compatibility With Your Fitness Tracker or Wearable
Fitness trackers and smartwatches are popular options for anyone who wants to record and track their health data. If you own a wearable device, you’ll undoubtedly want to make sure that any fitness app you download will support it and log your exercise.
4. Apps That Offer You an Element of Challenge
You’re much more likely to persevere with a fitness program if you can set and achieve goals and then challenge yourself further. The element of challenge ensures you’re constantly improving. Choose an app that will guide you on this journey. One of the most famous running apps, Couch to 5K, helps you develop your cardio levels by following a nine-week program that will prepare you to run a 5K race.
