Today, fitness apps let you set your own goals and maintain a pace that’s right for you. Let’s have a look at some of the best fitness apps that will help you zip your workouts.

As the name suggests, it’s a simple app that helps you track your daily movements all day long. It automatically records any walking, cycling, and running you do. You can view the distance, duration, steps, and calories burned for each activity. In fact, it is more than a pedometer. The app is always on, so there’s no need to start and stop it, neither there is a need to enter any kind of data or even wear any kind of movement tracker – the only tracker here is your phone and we guess that always stays with you.

Once registered, you are taken to your personal timeline that features an array of honeycombs, which give you an overview of the day’s activities, as well as your results from previous days. Just like Moves, it tracks your activity directly through your iPhone; as long as you carry your phone along with you.
Fitbit

Get active. Eat better. Manage weight. Sleep better. Well that’s how we would define this app. This app enables you to view graphs of your activity levels, sleep and weight and gives you a clear picture of your health and fitness trends. Although, the app is designed to be used with Fitbit devices, you can still use the app without the device. You can use the app to count calories, log your weight, and record other health information, such as your blood pressure and glucose levels.
Fitocracy
Available on Apple, Windows and Google platforms

The app motivates you and helps you to succeed at fitness and level up in real life. Did we just say ‘motivate’? Well yeah, we did – Developed by Richard Talens and Brian Wang, Fitocracy uses game-like stats to spur on friendly competition and increase your dedication to working out. It’s a very social app for tracking your workouts, especially weight-lifting, and sharing your progress with the community. In other words, we can call it an online game and social network app that aims to improve the fitness of its users through a gamification approach. Fitocracy also has plentiful resources for all kinds of fitness enthusiasts, from weightlifters to swimmers, although the how-to videos aren’t ideal for beginners.
So which one are you using?
