We use our phones for everything. We make lists, videos, take pictures, post status updates, communicate, and much more. Your phone can also help you lose weight and stay on track with your health and fitness goals. There are several apps available to you whether it is for tracking calories, lifting weights, or going out for a run.
Since this post is a fitness post, I will be only talking about the workout apps today. If you would like to find more health and fitness apps, then I would check them out here. This website has a list of some of the greatest health and fitness apps out there. You should take a look! Most of them are free! All of my information comes from the website greatist.com (listed above). I have some of these apps and I love them. If you are interested in learning more about the app, just click on the name or picture and it will take you to the website.
