5 Apps To Keep You Moving

Because everyone can use some help staying active.

Working out can sometimes feel hard to fit into your schedule. We’ve all had those days when the last thing we wanted to do was go to the gym after work. Luckily, technology can help us integrate workouts into our everyday lives with minimal hassle. With reminders, timers, and even planned routes and routines, these apps are bound to help you incorporate movement into your daily life.

1. MyFitnessPal

MyFitnessPal is one of many apps that wants to help you achieve a healthy lifestyle. The app offers two trackers: one for calories consumed and one for calories burned. This balanced approach has been useful for the app’s more than 165 million users.

2. Garmin

Garmin Connect is another option for anyone looking to track their activity. Monitoring steps, sleep, calories, and floors climbed, this app uses data to help you set fitness goals. Garmin Connect has a vibrant community of users who share their successes and setbacks and provide support for each other.

3. Runkeeper

Runkeeper is another app that wants to motivate users to move. While at its core this app is a tracker for your walk or run, it also lets you set tempo goals, workout reminders, and even follow personalized routines. Not only will you be able to see exactly where you’ve gone, but you’ll also be able to use this app as an improvement tool by challenging yourself to longer or more strenuous workouts.

4. Mindbody

For people who want a little bit of help finding the right fitness, wellness, and beauty services, there’s Mindbody, designed to help users learn about and book the best services nearby. With the ability to reserve classes and make appointments right on the app, Mindbody eliminates the hassle of researching what’s available, placing you one step closer to your perfect fitness class.

5. Seconds

If you’ve ever practiced interval training, you know that it requires intense focus. That’s why Seconds is so helpful. With HIIT, tabata, and circuit training timers pre-programmed, it lets you focus on your workout while it keeps track of the timing and reminds you what interval is coming up next.
