As creators of high-tech protein shaker bottles, here at PROMiXX we know how important technology is in today’s health and fitness regimes. With so many apps on the market, it can sometimes be hard to know which one is right for you. We have taken a look at the best health and fitness apps available right now and worked out their benefits, so you don’t have to.
- Great for Monitoring Calorie Intake
For those in the fitness industry, this app is well-known. MyFitnessPal has been a leader in health and fitness for years, with over 27 million active users in 2018. Marketed as a weight-loss platform, this app has a database containing over 11 million foods that users can track throughout the day. MyFitnessPal then calculates calorie consumption and breaks down macronutrients in each food. Perfect for fitness beginners, this health and fitness app is also handy for more experienced individuals who want to analyse patterns in nutrition and track macronutrient intake. Beyond this, the health app also provides a community section, where users can find friends, share workouts and motivate each other. This makes it a great app to use at any point in your fitness journey.
- Great for Personalised Goals
This health and fitness app combines efficient workouts with simple and satisfying meals. Users enter a few details about their body and goals and 8 Fit does the rest. You can personalise goals based on whether you want to lose weight, get fitter, or gain muscle. Those among you that love quick and intense workouts that fit in with your bust schedule, this app is perfect for you, as it is based around HIIT and does all of the planning for you. As well as tracking food, drinks and exercise, this fitness app also tracks progress and milestones that you can set at the beginning of your journey. This is combined with daily challenges and tips for staying on track.
- Great for Apple watch Users and/or Those with a Busy Lifestyle
An apple-watch optimised app, Keelo works well with other health and fitness gadgets like our Vortex mixer bottle. The app plans workouts for you which can be completed at home or at the gym, making it perfect for anyone who is short on time. Keelo wants to you set aside 7-20 minutes three days per week for equipment-free HIIT workouts. Each exercise also has a demonstration of the correct form, making it perfect for people who want to broaden their knowledge of exercises. This is a great app if you don’t want to join the gym or if you have a busy schedule. However, workouts are particularly intense, so be prepared to feel the burn!
- Great for Home Workouts
Claiming to dramatically improve your fitness in just 6 weeks, this fitness app guides your workouts with videos that can be followed at home. Similar to Keelo, Sworkit asks you to set aside 5-15 minutes of your time each day that you want to be active. In this time, Sworkit will recommend a workout for you based on your goals and desired workout type. All you need is your motivation and your Vortex mixer bottle! Because of the range of workouts available, Sworkit is as intense as you want it to be, with workouts ranging from daily stretch to intense 7-minute ab burn.
- Great for Variation and Working at your own Pace
Promising a ‘New You’ in 30 days, this health and fitness app provides audio-based fitness workouts to keep you motivated without physically going to a class. While exercise classes are a fantastic way to stay inspired, it is sometimes hard to fit in to the rigid timings of your local classes. Aaptiv takes the issue of timetabling out of the equation, allowing users to choose from over 3,000 workouts, with 40 new workouts added each week. Like MyFitnessPal, Aaptiv has a community section with over 200,000 members that share selfies, progress and motivation to help each other stay on track.
- Great for Runners
This app’s for the runners among us. Tracking runs in detail and analysing progress, this fitness app allows users to complete challenges, connect with friends, get personalised coaching and unlock monthly prizes. Guided runs also provide motivation along the way, pushing you to go further than you’re used to. Whether you’re a beginner or a strict daily runner, this app provides all that you need to stay motivated.
- Great for Nutrition
As the name suggests, this is a nutrition app that allows users to track what they eat and see exactly how healthy their diet actually is. Rating each food with a letter grading system, Fooducate simplifies nutrition and helps users achieve their diet, health and fitness goals. Not only tracking calories, this nutrition app also details macronutrients of each food logged and provides a daily grade based on the nutritional value of consumed calories, perfect for those of us who care about putting healthy eating at the core of their training.
- Great for a Healthy Mind
A little different from the rest of the list, this health app is perfect for relaxing post-workout or at the end of a stressful day. Providing guided meditations, animations, articles and videos, Headspace strives to improve the health and happiness of the world. For successful individuals, sometimes it is hard to take time to work on your mental health, but this health app makes this easy and accessible, wherever you are in the world.
So, there they are: the best health and fitness apps of 2019. We think that there is something in this list for everyone, whether you’re an experienced athlete or a fitness beginner. So, grab your protein mixer and your trainers, and make 2019 the year of accomplishing your health and fitness goals.
