2) Under Armour Record
Fitness is important, and we all want to do what we can to stay healthy. Even when things get tough, we still want to be able to get out and run a few miles or swim a few laps. That’s why the new Under Armour Record app (available on Android or iOS) is such a perfect addition.

4) Nike Run Club
The Nike Run Club app is one of the more well-known weight loss apps. What I really like about it is that the tracking and workout routes were done by Nike so you know they are legit. The app’s interface is very user-friendly and it gives you both audio cues (via your phone) and on-screen cues as to what you should be doing, like running in a certain lane on the track or trying to maintain an even pace.
5) Lose it!
Lose it! is a great way to track your calorie intake, daily activity, and exercise. You can set a weight loss goal, as well as an intake goal. It’s easy to use and even has a barcode scanner so you can scan any food item to figure out the number of calories and nutrient content.
FatSecret is a great app to help you track your progress and make educated decisions about what food you should be eating. When it comes to dieting, one of the most important things you can do is to keep a log or journal of what you eat. This is where FatSecret comes in handy because it has several features that let you track everything from fat intake, calories burned, body measurements, and even how much water your drink throughout the day.
7) Sworkit Pro
Sworkit Pro is an awesome app that can help you break down your workout by rep, rest time, and/or timer so you can focus on the exercises you’re most interested in. You can customize a workout or use one of their pre-programmed routines to help get in shape and stay healthy. There are a variety of workouts that focus on different muscle groups, how much weight to lift, how many reps to do, which days to work out on and more!
Cronometer is one of the best weight loss apps out there because it’s a clean, simple food diary that helps you stay on track. Cronometer’s all-in-one service allows you to track your diet, exercise, weight and health. You can share your progress with friends or family and make adjustments in diet to better reach your goals.
Fooducate is the easiest way to eat better, whether you’re shopping at the grocery store or picking up take-out on your way home. Just snap a photo of your food and get instant feedback about how healthy it is.
