One of many great new fitness trends are options for the tech-inspired athletic crowd. While exploring the latest and greatest in health and wellness, I discovered ways to improve health with just the click of a button. You may be familiar with various fitness trackers and gadgets, but have you tried any of the new apps?

Health and wellness apps are gaining popularity because they allow you to create customized workouts, chart progress, and make good choices. Some apps even allow you to meet and connect with others with similar interests and goals. According to Hiconsumption, FitBit Coach and Nike Training Club are just two of many excellent fitness apps out there.

The Nike Training Club offers 150+ free workouts, notable fitness trainers, and advice on nutrition and wellness. You can select different workout plans based on the part of your body that you would like to strengthen. You can also sync your fitness tracker to monitor your heart rate. The FitBit Coach app also lets you keep track of your fitness activities. You can create a soundtrack to help you stay motivated during your workout or watch videos.
Other top apps include 7 Minute Workout, Blogilates, Charity Miles, and Jefit. Many of them are free or may require a small fee for specialized features. You can find routines and calendars, record your activities, and even count the number of calories that you consume every day.
When I first got started, I used the FitBit watch and app a lot. I could set it up to send me activity reminders and even check in with other health buffs. I really liked that it helped me to keep track of the calories that I burned during my workouts. I could set my weekly goal of say – work out four times as week – and earn badges and rewards when I reached my goals. I think this really kept me motivated because I was able to quantify the action, the food, and the number of calories burned. It helped to make the whole fitness thing more logical.
I encourage anyone who is into health and fitness to search your app store and find out what’s new. From running and HIIT training to yoga and plyometrics circuit training, there is something for everyone.
