Are you wanting to get in shape, shed weight, feel better or gain that competitive edge? An important part of setting and maintaining fitness goals is using the right tools to help keep you on track. Whether you’re a gym rat, an outdoor adventurer or you prefer the quiet of a yoga mat, are you making the most of your routine and developing healthy habits? Is the food that you eat fueling your engine properly? Could you train less, but more efficiently? Perhaps it’s simply time to get off the couch and take that first step. Today we’ll take a look at 10 apps that support your good health and may even put a little zest back in your workout.
If you enjoy sports and workout regularly, you might already be keeping track of your exercise with one or more of the excellent online services available to you: Runkeeper, DailyMile, Garmin Connect among them. These services are great: they can really help you to gain insight into your performance, and to plot and plan improvements.
Some of us, though, prefer not to upload all our data online; it might be that you’re not particularly interested in the social networking benefits these services offer; or you’re concerned about possible privacy issues (you might not want the maps of your runs available to anybody). And so you might prefer to find an option that keeps the information local, storing it on your Mac. If that describes you, you’ll be interested in hearing about rubiTrack, a mature app that does an excellent job of recording and tracking your workouts.
