As long as you have a smartphone, you’re only seconds away from keeping track of all your important health information and getting in shape. You’ll find apps that you can download today to keep track of the calories that you regularly eat, the number of steps you take in a single day, how many calories you burned and even your next doctor’s appointment. Though some apps existed for years, 2017 brought in some of the top health apps that you’ll want to download to your phone and start using.
Couch to 5K
Though not as new as some of the other apps on this list, Couch to 5K is a great app for anyone who wants to get in shape. Designed for those who want to run marathons, this app serves as a personal trainer. It starts out with simple exercises that you can do as a beginner and slowly increases both the amount of time you spend working out and the intensity of those workouts. As long as you give yourself enough time, you can get off the couch and go through all the training necessary to run a marathon within a year or less.
If you have an Android phone, you should download Google Calendar, which acts like a scheduling app to help you keep track of your schedule. This app is compatible with all Android devices, and you can use it from all devices. As long as you use the same Google account and log in on each device, you can view your upcoming appointments and add new notations as needed. The app lets you keep track of the endoscope repair services that you booked for your office, the yoga and fitness classes you want to take and dinners with friends. You can even put in reminders that alert you when it’s time to workout.
Not everyone can afford the cost of hiring a personal trainer to work with them, but everyone can afford to use the Sworkit app. Using this app is like having a personal trainer directly in front of you. The app features hundreds of exercises and instructions on how to perform each one as well as videos of others doing those exercises. You can narrow down your search based on exercises like yoga or cardio. Using these apps can help you get in shape and keep track of your health needs.
