The 5K Runner app boasts a training plan for a 5k that includes a 35 minute run, 3 times a week, over a span of 8 weeks to improve your speed and stamina.

Gold’s Gym: Spotter

  • Price: FREE
  • Download if: you want access to a range of workouts, instant inspiration, and tracking of your workouts

This app does not require that you are a member of Gold’s Gym, and downloading it gives you access to the trifecta of fitness: workouts, tracking, and motivation. The best part of this app? The “shake” feature, which allows you to shake your device and receive inspiring messages instantly. There is also a “flipbook” feature that allows you to track your workout progress.

Tap And Track Calorie Counter

  • Price: $3.99
  • Download if: you want an easy way to keep track of your calories both consumed and remaining to burn

If counting calories is a part of your fitness routine, look no further than this app. While there are free calorie counter apps available, this one is way more efficient in that it also breaks down calories into grams of fat and carbs, tracks your total weight loss, and measures and tracks your body mass index (BMI).

    Another great app is called “my fitness pal” – it allows you to keep track of all of your calories (what you have been eating) and you can also track your workout too. It has every food imaginable on it and its super easy to use and also its FREE (always a plus!)
