Favorite Fitness Apps, for now...
This is my go to app for tracking my fitntess data, probably because I own a FitBit Flex. The little wrist strap keeps track of my steps, movement, and even sleep patterns. Combined with the iPhone app I'm also able to record my calories, scan food packages for nutritional info, record my weight and track daily exercise. So although I use the Wahoo Fitness app and BlueTooth HR monitor, I still record exercise sessions in the FitBit app. It's my home base fitness journal. The friends feature and challenges also help me motivate to workout on those days where I hardly feel like putting on my shoes.
For my friends who use their iPhone apps or own another device like a JawBone or Nike Fuel, this website lets me set up challenges across the different platforms. Now I can compete with all the UEN PD office no matter what device we use!
Edmomondo is set up to make exercise fun and give you real time feedback while exercising. This app doesn't require any special devices other than your smartphone and utilizes your social media accounts like Facebook to connect your fitness activities with friends. Although the app is free you can also subscribe to a premium version for more advanced features. To get started just download the app and take the initial fitness assessment.
