Health/Fitness Apps I Actually Use



As you probably know, I use MyFitnessPal to track my food, although I haven't been really tracking lately. When I do track my food, I enter my calorie and macronutrient goals into MFP and then aim to hit them each day. More info on that here.



I'm generally a pretty frugal person, and I just can't justify the cost of attending a regular yoga class in the city. In comes YogaGlo. YogaGlo offers guided classes online taught by some of the best, most well-known yoga teachers around -- including Kathryn Budig and Tiffany Cruikshank (my two faves). I can use the app to pick a class and then do it in the warmth of my tiny apartment for a monthly fee that's less than the cost of one in-person class. 


Garmin Connect

I use this app to track my runs. It pulls data straight from my watch. Also, if I follow one of Garmin's training plans, I can add a plan to my training calendar in the app, which is a pretty cool feature. 



Garmin auto-pushes my data to Strava, which I use as a more social run-tracking app. My friends that don't have Garmin watches use Strava, so I can keep up with everyone on there!


Matt and I got Fitbit Charge HRs for each other for Christmas last year, and we still use them. It's fun to see how much more we walk in our to/from work commutes than our friends in Texas do. It's also been fun to see how high my steps get now that my long runs are getting longer. I did almost 20k steps this past Saturday!


Forks Over Knives

I don't use this app a ton, but when I do, it's really helpful and convenient. It's basically a really well organized and well-photographed library of plant-based recipes. 



Gymboss is a great app to use for HIIT or Sprint workouts. You can set timers for your entire workout so that it rings when you need to switch to a different movement, rest, or sprint. It takes the effort out of paying attention to a stopwatch. 



Now, this one isn't really a health/fitness app, but I use it for health/fitness things. I'm always reading and learning about topics in the health and fitness industry. I want to provide the most informed plans for my clients and the most helpful posts for you guys. Pocket has been a game-changer for me. It allows me to download articles to my phone throughout the day, and then read them (without wifi) on the subway. It helps me make the most out of my long commute, and allows me to read more articles throughout the day!

Which apps do you use?
