It’s the middle of January — a time of the year when New Year’s resolutions fall to the wayside… if they haven’t already. But don’t let your weight-loss resolution suffer the same fate. The working out and dieting can be tedious, especially during the initial phase when results aren’t yet visible. However, this is the very point when you need to keep pushing forward.
Fitness apps are invaluable resources for people trying to lose weight. They keep you organized, help track your nutritional intake, allow you to set and maintain goals, and, most importantly, provide exercise and workout tips. Since weight loss begins in the grocery store, many of the best fitness applications have built-in barcode scanners to provide you with up-to-date nutritional information. Other apps offer new and exciting workouts that you can perform by just using your body weight.
But the common foundation of all of the best applications is that they chronicle your progress by using a variety of different metrics such as steps taken, calories burned, or daily fiber consumed. By having a well-documented, visual account of your fitness trials and tribulations you will see how far you’ve come — and how you are actually moving toward your weight-loss goals.
Here are 10 fitness apps that will help you keep your New Year’s weight-loss resolution.
