We all spend every waking moment of our lives in front of our mobile screens these days. Our mobiles do most of our work for us from banking to grocery shopping and more. Of course we cannot make our phones workout or train for us but there are applications in our phones that can help us in planning, monitoring and scheduling our diet, exercise and more…

Most health and fitness apps are free while the rest cost only a few dollars. Here are some handy apps that will get your fitness regime and diet back on the right track and even help you reach your fitness and diet goals:

  • Calorie counter – My fitness pal

This is a simple to use and basic calorie counter app. It records the food you consume and the exercise done by you and auto populates the calorie consumed.

The best part of this app is that it remembers the frequently entered foods so that you don’t have to keep searching for it or entering it.

It will also remind you if you haven’t logged in for the day. If you are regular in updating your weight then you can keep track of your progress.

  • Strava- For Running and Cycling

Strava has two distinct apps. One is for runners and the other for cyclists. It works with GPS and has a timer to track your workouts. It will give you a reading of the calories burnt, speed and elevation.

  • Yoga Studio

For those who want to get fit the traditional way like our ancestors then yoga is the way to go. This app offers you videos on more than 500 yoga poses and you can either follow them in the sequence given or make your own sequence.

  • Sworkit Personal Trainer

You can have a personal trainer at your home without having to go to the gym. Sworkit Personal Trainer has a lot of inbuilt exercises that you can perform depending on which area of your body you want to train.

This is perfect enough for those people who are beginners to working out or those who can’t afford going to agym.


  • Workout Trainer

This is one old app that has been around since the first apps have been created. You can customize your workouts, view instructional videos on how to do exercises, and follow along to workouts. There is also a social aspect that you can include yourself in if you want to.


You might not be looking to run a marathon or climb a mountain. You just want to step up your physical activity in an effort to stay healthy. And believe me when I say that these fitness and health apps work in pushing you the right way to reach your goals.
