5 Great Fitness Apps

So, you want to take care of what's on the outside as much as you do with what's on the inside – but you don't have that much time left in your schedule. These days, we fit in as much as we can – but a lot of the time, we still don't manage to cover everything. If you're someone who has a busy work and home life and struggles to fit exercise in, you may want to consider trying a fitness app. Let's take a look at five of the best fitness apps that could make all the difference to your exercise regime this year. 

  1. My Fitness Pal

The first fitness app on our list has been number one for a while now and has a lot of industry experts excited about the seemingly endless possibilities that it holds.

If you’re someone who wants it all, this is the fitness app for you. It can log your workout stats and take down how many calories you’re eating in a day, which means that it can also help you change your habits over time and ultimately meet those personal health goals. It also helps you sync all of your workouts, and has a wealth of workout sessions you can implement into your daily routine, too.

  1. Zones for Training

If you want to stay in the right heart rate zone, then you need to check out the next app on our list, the Zones for Training app. This is a great, efficient way to keep an eye on what’s happening with your pulse while you’re working out.

It monitors both what your heart is doing when it’s resting and when it’s active. It can also work out when you have reached your peak workout level, and when you’re burning fat. It’s the perfect companion for someone who wants to keep on top of how their workouts are benefiting them.

  1. Fooducate

Sometimes, we need to take a good, hard look at what we’re eating, and change a few things up depending on what we’re hoping to achieve. One of the things that it’s known for the most is being able to scan barcodes. Each item it scans is given a letter grade, which helps you determine whether it’s worth putting in your cart or not.

Fooducate makes sure that you're only eating what you should be. You can even customize it for specific diet goals, depending on what you want your daily food intake to look like. If you like the idea of learning more about what you eat, check out this fun, easy-to-use app. 

  1. Headspace

Remember that busy, stressful lifestyle that we were talking about? If we basically described you, then you may want to consider checking out the next app on our list, Headspace. This app is all about helping you clear your mind of the stress and focusing in on being present with your workouts.

It's no secret that our mental health is an integral part of our overall physical health as well, and as far as we’re concerned, Headspace is the gold standard for meditation apps. It can even help you learn how to meditate better, providing a wealth of information to beginners and veterans alike.

  1. The 7 Minute Workout

That busy lifestyle you lead no doubt doesn't leave a lot of room for working out. If your schedule simply couldn't be busier, then you may want to think about how you can integrate the workouts you'll find on the 7 Minute Workout app. This app has a user-friendly, simple dashboard, offering users three different workouts on the home screen.

These are a high-intensity sweat session, a basic workout, or a workout that focuses on your abs. It also comes with helpful pre-workout demos, too, as well as time limits that you can set yourself.

Taking Care of Yourself Holistically

When you take care of yourself holistically, it means that you take care of every aspect of your well-being – from the physical to the mental. When you begin to incorporate a fitness routine into your schedule, you’ve also got to make sure that you’re taking care of your skin at the same time. Velettá is a New Zealand made, vegan, Halal-certified daily skincare company that offers luxury, effective, everyday skincare products that can take care of your skin, while you take care of the rest of you. Try our Facial Cleansing Oil to start off a rejuvenating morning routine that can take care of any sweat that may be resting on your face. Follow up with our Facial Moisturizer, before finishing off with our nourishing Facial Oil. Remember, when you take care of your body from the outside in, you begin to benefit in every aspect.
