Whether you’re team Android or team iPhone, there is always an app to satisfy your tech needs. So which apps are most important to someone who’s all about that gym life? There are definitely some must haves in the Play Store and the Apps Store for your everyday fitness needs. Without further adieu, here are 5 apps that I utilize for my personal day to day grind.
Spotify – How can you truly go into “beastmode” without the proper motivation? This app has truly been my lifesaver in tense gym situations when I need to get that last rep, or better yet, start the first one. From self-inspired playlists to streaming music to fitness podcasts, Spotify is hands down one of the reasons why my battery needs to be recharged so often. If you do not have this app, then you...my friend…are losing.
Fitbit – In a previous post, I mentioned that getting a fitness tracker would be beneficial for anyone set out on their fitness journey. And I wasn’t lying. The Fitbit app is free, and it links to any Fitbit tracker that they’ve come out with since their inception. One of the best features about this app is that it syncs with other applications (i.e. My Fitness Pal), so you’ll get the most accurate calories burned or consumed. If you don’t want to drop a couple of Benjamins on a fitness tracker, then just used the app by itself to track your daily routine. Definitely a must.
My Fitness Pal – Aside from the fact that it syncs with Fitbit, as previously stated, this app let’s you get more in-depth with certain aspects of your fitness journey. The food diary makes it easy to see what you are eating throughout the day while staying on track. Some features come at a cost, but this app is pretty functional in the basic version. Between this app and the Fitbit app, you should be able to cover all your bases from sleep to food to exercise.
Camera – Yes. The camera. Your phone’s camera/video app is necessary when you’re a fitness fanatic. Not only do you capture those badass gym selfies or outdoor flex poses, but you can also use this app to document your actual workouts. This helps to visualize your form when your doing your squats or when your performing your chest press. Get a nice flexible tripod or some type of suction mount, and you’re in business.
FilmoraGo – Now I wouldn’t say this is quite a necessity, but it definitely is fun to use. This app allows you to edit your videos. I typically use this to make highlight videos of my workouts, but most importantly, to celebrate the workout successes of my clients. Get some dope video footage, some legit music, some nice transitions, and you look like a natural-born producer.
Without these apps, I would be nothing! Okay, that’s a bit much, but I definitely enjoy using all of them when I’m living my best gym life. There’s plenty of other apps out there that could be even better. I’m definitely open to here about them. Drop me a line or two and let me know which apps you work with in your daily routine.
