Health apps have become really popular in last few years, thanks to the enormous popularity of smartphones and other gadgets like Samsung Gear and Apple Watch. These apps have proven to be amazing when it comes to helping people achieve their goals and lead a healthier life.
The only problem is that there are so many different applications that are advertised to do practically the same thing and it can be quite hard to find the app that is right for you. To make it easier for you, we have chosen five different apps that should help you be more committed, more flexible and fitter – if you use them every day.
1. Waterlogged – Free
One of the first tips that experts and fitness professionals recommend to anyone who is starting their fitness journey is to drink more water every day, however, keeping your body hydrated every single day can be much harder than you think. Luckily, there is an app that can help you achieve it much easier – when you install Waterlogged you choose how much water you want to drink every day and the app will remind you every day to drink water. The use of the app is simple and you will see how easy it is to achieve your goal.
2. 12 minute athlete – $2.99
The only app on this list that is not free – but since it costs $2.99 we believe that it is worth every penny. This app is also simple to use and easy to understand – you get high intensity interval training workouts that are done in 12 minutes. There are more than 180 workouts available in the app and you can choose what your focus is – core, cardio or strength.
3. Strava – Free
Strava is an app that is similar to Map My Run, Runkeeper and Nike +, but with an important difference – it is super simple to use. You only have to start the app and you can be on your way. You don’t have to set up anything until you have finished with your workout. The developers also worked very hard on making the app offer great user experience and it is also very well designed.
4. Move well – Free
MoveWell is like a video coach that teaches you how to do simple mobility workouts that last from 10 to 15 minutes and they help you get moving better. You can choose which part of the body you want to warm up – there is a routine for every part of the body. There are lots of workouts available in the free version, while you will have to pay extra for more workouts.
5. Coach.me – Free
This app can help you build and stick to a habit. You can set a goal, choose how many days a week you’re willing to do it and you can start. Furthermore, this app enables you to follow friends who are also using the app and give each other props for checking in. This app has a calendar that can help you motivate when you are feeling like you don’t want to exercise.
