5 Best Health and Fitness Apps for 2017

Getting fit doesn’t have to be boring. Who would’ve guessed you can get fit by running from zombies? Here are 5 of the best health and fitness apps for 2017:

My Fitness Pal

With over 5 million food items in their database, My Fitness Pal is the perfect app for the calorie counter. Calorie counter apps are great for anyone just starting out with healthier or cleaner eating. It gives you an overview of what foods to get at the supermarket, and which menu choices at a restaurant are better in terms of calorie count.

FoodPrint Diet by Nutrino

If you’re a sucker for a minimalist UI like I am, Nutrino is the food app for you. I wouldn’t classify Nutrino as a diet app because it’s more than just that. This is a health app, taking you through the food choices good for you and your current health condition. It’s also very educational as you can clearly see how different foods are affecting your body and glucose levels. But that’s not all. Nutrino also lets you track your daily exercises and helps you build your menu with their Personalized Meal Planner feature.

Sworkit

Build the perfect exercise plan for you through Sworkit. This app abides by the popular saying “no excuses” because you can definitely find a workout plan for your current environment. No gym? No problem. Sworkit’s exercise routines can be as simple as a 7-minute HIIT workout to get your day started, or if you’re feeling a little adventurous you can opt for the advanced total body sets. Professional personal trainers plan the workout routines on Sworkit, so you know you’re in good hands.

Zombies, Run!

What the holy macaroni is an “exergame”? Short answer: games where you exercise to win. Nothing screams motivation to run than, um, screaming for your life against the undead. Zombies, Run! is an audio-based app that will send you into the post-apocalypse scene. As you run anywhere in the world, whether it be at the park or on the treadmill, this app will give you missions as to how far you can find supplies and when you should start speeding up before zombies eat you alive. It’s a great alternative to your usual cardio music and can get you running longer without it feeling repetitive and boring.

Spotify Running

Match your running pace with the best beats today through Spotify. Spotify Running intelligently pairs your own running speed with a song with the same BPM. And for people who do HIIT, Spotify also changes songs as you speed up or slow down. Based from experience, listening to music perfectly in time with my running lengthens my time on the treadmill, gets me burning more calories, and all with a smile on my face.
