My 5 Top Fitness Apps

With the New Year just round the corner, many of you will have New Year's resolutions of getting fit, loosing weight or just starting to exercise. To help you along the way I have put together my Top 5 Fitness Apps, which will help you keep track of and interact with your resolution.

1. My Fitness Pal

The 'My Fitness Pal' app has been round for a while, but its a great tool to help you with your weight loss goals.

The majority of my clients want to gain some nutritional advice but find it difficult to track their calories in, versus their calories out. Look no further as this app will do this for you!

It is also surprising that the majority of people tend to underestimate the amount of calories they consume and most over estimate the amount of calories they burn.

This app will aid you in your weight loss goals.

How It Works?

After you have downloaded it, you need to add in your current weight and your desired weight, along with a few other personal details. One thing to watch out for, you may feel like you are an active person, the majority of people actually live a sedentary lifestyle. If you have a desk job and workout for one hour everyday, I would set your lifestyle as sedentary.
