iMap My Ride is an app geared at cyclists. The app allows you to track your distance, time and, as a social feature, let’s you see the courses your friends like to ride. The app is also a sort of Facebook for cyclists as you can update your status and arrange rides or post-ride meet-ups with friends. The app is free, but fair warning—cycling might become your new favorite hobby.
Lose It is another free app that keeps track of your food consumption and exercise throughout the day. If you are a diligent about inputting your daily amounts of food and exercise into the app (no cheating!) this can be a very effective weight loss tool. Just set your daily calorie budget and choose the food you’re eating from Lose It’s vast database of brand name foods. The app will tell you how many calories you’re consuming and with the weight loss goals you can set, how much exercise you need to do to meet your goals.
The FitnessBuilder app is fully loaded with all the features that are important to the New Year’s Resolution crowd and the hardcore workout junkies. The $9.99 price tag might seem a bit expensive for the FitnessBuilder but it will be money well spent. There are a huge variety of exercise routines and progress trackers, which has the ability to input your location (gym, bedroom, etc) and have a routine created that fits into whatever location and situation in which you find yourself. Are you on the road and staying in a hotel room, away from your dumbbells? No problem. Just enter “hotel room” into the location bar and get started on a stripped down workout free of equipment.
These apps are the perfect addition to any fitness freak or casual exerciser’s smartphone. Now, if they could only make an app that makes broccoli taste like chocolate cake.
