There are literally thousands of health related apps these days, and I’ve tried SO many. I’ve finally found 12 different apps that have helped me tremendously on my journey to a healthy lifestyle do of course I just had to share it.
I recently signed up for the 2015 Lululemon Seawheeze Half Marathon and this app has helped me start the training process. It allows you to put in all of your info, the date of the race, what your running ability is (whether you’re a seasoned runner, or someone just starting a running routine like myself), what days you like to run and what days are your rest days, and then it makes a training plan for you.
Nike Training Club
This is definitely one of the most popular fitness apps out there, and for good reason. Not only does it have amazing workouts, you have the ability to create a 4-week program that helps you accomplish your goals.
I’ve tried at least 10 different meditation apps and this is by far my favorite. All of the meditations are guided, although you do have the option to simply time yourself, but the guides are so relaxing and there are so many different ones to choose from. Another great thing about this app is that it also shows you your meditation stats so you can see how you’re doing.
This. App. Is. Amazing. This is the app that I use to track my runs. It shows you all the standard things like your speed, time, distance, calories burned, a map of your run, and it looks pretty while doing it. Because let’s be honest, fitness is more fun when you have cute workout clothes and a pink running app. Not only can you track your running, but there is a whole list of activities you can keep track of. So for me, I can track my running, walking, yoga, and my Kayla Itsines workouts all in one place. PLUS There’s even a section of this app with really great recipes, and another section that always has a different motivational quote, for those days when working out is the last thing you want to do.
This is the new health app that apple created and I have to say, I’m pretty impressed. I’ve been using this to count my steps and show me how far I walk/run daily. But this app doesn’t stop there. There are so many things you can track with this app, from your sleep, to your weight, or your diet, or even your heart rate. I’ve yet to add more things to my dashboard, but I’m excited to keep using it.
This app is really straightforward. You just set a goal for how much water you want to drink daily, and then every time you do drink water, you record it. I have it set up on my phone to remind me to drink water throughout the day. Since I started using it about a year ago, I’ve definitely gotten better about staying hydrated.
I love food. That’s no secret for anyone that knows me, so this app is perfect for me. There are so many amazing recipes in here, and the great thing is that new ones are always being added.
Whole Living Smoothies
You guys. This is THE best smoothie app I’ve tried. And believe me I’ve tried a lot. There are TONS of recipes in here. There are the essential, meal-in-a-glass, allergy free, detox, immunity boosting, and weight loss smoothies. So the possibilities are seriously endless.
This is another favorite food app, exempt this one only has vegan, gluten-free, and raw food options. I tend to consume a lot of dairy, and I’ve been trying to scale it back, and this app has been so helpful. There are recipes for every meal of the day, and my favorite kind of recipe, snacks. I eat pretty healthy meals, but snacks are always my weakness. So this has so many healthy snack alternatives that actually taste GOOD!
Green Kitchen Recipes
Yet another food app (I told you guys I love food). This is another great source for recipes, from actual meals, to simple juice recipes.
I recently discovered this app and instantly fell in love. There are so many times that I go in to my kitchen to make something, and have absolutely no idea what to make. So I pull out this app, and plug in what foods I actually have, and it finds recipes that use those ingredients. How genius is that?
This is app is definitely different from any other health/fitness app I’ve used. It talks to you! It’s set up like text messages, and it tell you how you’re activity is that day, what your sleep was like last night, and gives you encouraging messages.
