7 Best Apps for Working out ...


I am such a fan of workout apps, and I've narrowed all my favorites down to the top 7 best apps for working out for you all. We all know it's great to listen to your favorite tunes while you're huffing and puffing away during a workout, but your phone can do more for you than provide you with a great playlist. Here is my personal list of the best apps for working out. Be sure you share yours with me too!

This app actually PAYS you to workout, definitely making it one of the best apps for working out of all apps. Yes, you heard me right. You actually get paid to exercise now. In GymPact, you pledge to workout a certain amount of your choosing each day and pledge to pay other users a certain amount if you don't workout. When you log in to confirm your workouts, you actually get paid when other people fail to do so based on what they wagered to pay if they missed their workout. This app is so much fun, almost like a game and a job at the same time! Best of all the app is free!

Perhaps one of the most popular apps for runners is MapMyRun. This one has been around for quite some time, but with constant updates to the app, the features are better than ever. Featuring a built-in GPS, pedometer and heart rate monitor, MapMyRun can help you find inspiration through logging your runs into the MapMyRun website, which helps you share your success and running goals with others.

It integrates everything into the equation so you don’t get stuck in traffic or miss a turn and get lost. It can help you find new ways to sight see in your area, along with giving you challenging changes for your routine. Cost is $4.99.

My Fitness Pal is a great resource, when I remember to use it lol :)

I agree! Nike Training Club is amazing!

I have my fitness pal i love it the only one i liked so far and i try all of them

Agree completely with everyone that has mentioned Nike training club I use it all the time.

Lose it is also an amazing app :)

You totally forgot Nexercise! You get rewarded for working out and you get to buy cool stuff with your points. It's definitely kept me on point and motivated to keep working out. You can friend people and they can nudge you to work out as well. There is also a chat room where you can get song ideas, motivation tips and you can even run with people who live close to you or you can know that your Nexercise buddies are doing the same things as you are! It's awesome for gamers as well because you work towards different achievements on different days. It's just awesome! (:

I love the nike training club it's free and you get to unlock recipes .. Awesome app love it !!!


Fitocracy is also one worth a try.

Lose it was nice when I started and was watching my calories, but the calories they give you was way too low for me. I do love the Nike Training Club!
