Recently I broke down and put an app on my phone that seems so silly to me. It’s called WaterLog. It does exactly what it says. I click a button every time I drink water and it tallies it up for me.
For the past few weeks I have not been hydrating well enough and I’ve been waking up with a headache. I’ve been telling myself for two weeks to just drink more water but at the end of the day it’s not happening. I’m not sure why because usually I’m a great water drinker. I download the app on my phone and it motivates me to drink more water. It’s working and I’m hitting my hydration goal for the day.
Well, now I officially depend on my phone for just about everything, even drinking water. Today I’m sharing 5 of my favorite health and fitness phone apps that are helpful in my daily life.
I found this app on my Android phone after I saw a lot of iPhone users using something similar. Simple but effective.
[two] Nike Running App
I have a Nike+ Sportwatch so this app goes hand in hand with that. Even if you don’t have the Sportwatch, I highly recommend this app. It works outside with GPS and inside on the treadmill as well. It links up the run to the Nike+ website so that you can see splits and other feedback.
[three] Nike Training Club
This app has so much variety included in it that I’m amazed it’s free. You can pick from a long list of workouts provided and then you also unlock more as you complete workouts. I use this app for 15-30 minute strength workouts usually about 3 times a week. I aim to get in a core, arm and leg workout each week.
[four] Charity Miles
How amazing is it that I can do something I love (run) and would be doing anyway but at the same time help to make a difference? Charity Miles is an app that allows you to choose from a wide range of charities to donate funds to that you earn by running. I just turn this app on before I run and the various sponsors donate funds to the charity of my choice. I always pick The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society because it is an important charity to my family.
[five] Yoga App
Here’s where I need your help. I’m looking for a good yoga app for my phone. I’ve been wanting to add more yoga into my routine and I think this is the way to do it. I’m looking for something that has various levels of yoga and has routines that last around 15 minutes. It seems like I can always squeeze in a 15 minute workout throughout the day but any longer than that gets more difficult.
What are your favorite health and fitness phone apps? Do you use a yoga app?
