Best Fitness Apps of 2018

There are so many apps that we use on a daily basis to connect with our friends and family. These apps can bring us closer together and feel like we’re in a community with one another.

Another great way we can connect with each other is using fitness apps. Having fitness apps can help you track progress and achieve goals faster, all while having the same sense of community. They can be little built-in accountability partners, helping you be healthier and active during your week. There are so many apps out there to choose from, and we’ve narrowed down 5 that could be very beneficial for you:

  1. MyFitnessPal: One of the best ways to lose weight and keep it off is to keep track of the food you eat. This app has consistently ranked as one of the best in the fitness industry. MyFitnessPal has a database of more than 5 million foods, a barcode scanner, and a recipe importer. It’s so easy to track your calories in just a few steps.
  2. Couch to 5K: If you’re a beginner looking to train for a 5K, this is a great app that gets you going. The program lasts for nine weeks and all you need is 30 minutes a day three times a week. It also connects you to a running community to help support your goals.
