In today’s episode, we explore smart phone apps and their usefulness to support your health and fitness journey. As background, I found it useful to solicit feedback from a user group in order to get a broader overview into the apps that many people are using concerning health and fitness.
Smart phones are great tools and we can use them to enhance our health and fitness. Many of the apps do continually change and often the functionality in one app is similar to the functionality in another app.
In this episode, we discuss the variety of food and nutrition apps which allow you to track your food intake, calculate and track calories and nutrients. We also discuss the wide variety of fitness apps, such as those that are specific (running apps), those that provide exercise videos and training guidance. There are also apps that act as timers for HIIT (high intensity interval training) and Tabata workouts. And let us not forget out mental health, and there are apps designed to guide you through the meditation process or those that provide white noise. While not necessarily apps, we also explore activity trackers that can sync to an app so you can have real time monitoring of your activity levels.
I encourage you to do the research and explore the wide variety of health and fitness apps that are available for your smart phone.
