Fitness Apps to keep you sweating!

What’s going on y’all? I know we all hear about a ton of different fitness apps that are available, and we probably want to download every single one of them (at least, that’s how I am!).  I wanted to give y’all a look into the top apps that I use and really enjoy!

Runtastic – (free) I love that this app is clean and streamlined.  It looks crisp, and it is simple to use! Also, if you want to upgrade to Pro, it is only $5.  An inexpensive app that does a great job!

Strava – (free) Another running app.  Not only can you use it to track distance, but the app also offers different weekly/monthly challenges that you can take part of. You can also see the athletes who are around you, check their times and distances – great motivation and networking app!

Pact – (free download) This app is so neat! Okay, so you set a goal on the app + enter what you’ll pay other members if you don’t reach the goal.  So for instance you can set a goal to hit the gym 4 days a week, and if you don’t go then $10 is deducted from your account that week.  It really is an awesome app to keep you accountable! I mean, who wants to give away money? However, if you DO meet your goals you earn cash rewards!

Livestrong – (free) Perfect app to track your caloric goal.  This app shows your progress on a chart, plus it has a community forum.  I am a huge advocate for Livestrong because of what their company represents.  This is an app worth checking out for sure!

Fitness Point – (free) Ever get tired of trying to remember all of the workouts that exist to the human race? Well, this app aggregates every workout by muscle group and allows you to build and save your own workout!

Pump Up – (free) This app is extremely similar to Fitness Point, however Pump Up allows you to choose your goal (lose weight, get toned, etc.), fitness level (beginner, intermediate, advanced), duration, and other general factors to generate a workout that best suits you.

First Aid – (free) What if something happens to you or another friend while training? That is exactly why I have this app – just in case and for safety reasons.  Even if you are not working out, this is a smart app to download – free information is at your fingertips.  Head injury, Choking, Strain and Pains, Asthma Attack are just a few of the topics that are available First Aid Topics.

Luminosity – (free) Keep that brain strong! It is great to have a strong, healthy body but do not forget about that brain of yours.  Daily/weekly brain exercises are great to incorporate into your training routine…it’ll keep you sharp and on your toes! Luminosity covers: Memory, Attention, Flexibility, Speed and Problem Solving.  Stay healthy in all aspects of life!

Those are the top few apps that I frequent. Does anyone use these same apps? If not, what are other awesome apps that I should check out? You know what to do, comment down below!

Thanks for reading 🙂

This is the first blog post of what I hope will lead the way for many many more.  I am excited about this journey, and hope that somewhere along the way this will encourage and bring a smile to someone or some few. 

I have always enjoyed writing, reading and all things literature.. so you can see how this is such a thrill to me! Although I do not know the first thing about blogging, I am going to give this my absolute best shot. 

First and foremost, I am a servant of the Lord, I take that extremely seriously.  He is my Redeemer and my world.  He has walked by my side and carried me through many situations, it is unbelievable! He defines me.

I am also an IMPACT Certified Volleyball Coach, and I also own my own coaching business (private lessons for court and sand volleyball).  What else, what else… oh yes – I am a runner! I absolutely love to run.  I first ran when I was in third grade and was absolutely terrible at it.. maybe because I didn’t have a great pair of running shoes.  A couple of years ago, I started running on the treadmill.  I was not able to complete ten minutes without huffing and puffing, and now.. well now I am able to run with endurance.  The love for running which was sparked two years ago hasn’t left, I actually am more fond of it now then I was before – that might be because now I actually understand running, I mean.. I really get it! Aside from volleyball and running, I also adore the fashion world, photography and all things fitness OH and also traveling! So keep an eye out for posts on the above 🙂

I hope this serves to inspire and uplift!
