For those who like fitness apps
I usually don’t read the magazine Maxim but they just featured an article that caught my attention for I am always interested to learn about new fitness apps. That’s not because I am such a fitness freak but I somehow seem to think that if I get the right app I might start doing all those exercises that will result in losing that excess weight and get back into great shape.
One of those apps I use every time I go ride my bike which is at least once a week is Runkeeper (the free version) which I highly recommend.
Anyway about that Maxim article here’s an excerpt which will give you an idea of the rest of the story, it really is worth your time:
“6 Fitness Apps That Actually Don’t Suck
You need more than a set of weights and sheer force of will—the key to a healthier summer is right in your pocket.
We all have that friend. He’s the guy who can eat and drink a seemingly endless supply of beer and burgers and never has to worry. If you’re reading this, you’re probably not that guy. Good, because everyone hates that f..king guy.
As for the rest of us, we have to put pain, effort, and sacrifice into looking and feeling phenomenal — but that’s a good thing. A solid workout routine should take discipline, the result of hard work and perseverance. At the end, you should feel like you’ve accomplished something.
But it shouldn’t be impossible. Here are 6 fitness apps to help get that grind going.
1.FitStar – Free, Premium for $4.99/month or $49.99/year
Custom curated workout routines delivered straight to your phone, based on your personal goals, objectives, and current fitness level. FitStar gives you a baseline “fitness test” to gauge starting health levels, then sends you custom daily workout routines that intensify and get more complex as you get more fit. The app actively solicits feedback and either increases or reduces intensity based on how you feel. It’ll also give you workouts for specific time parameters, perfect for squeezing in some exercise on busy days”
