If you workout a lot like me, you have probably gotten tired of the same routines over and over again. This is why I use my smartphone at the gym. Its filled with many apps that can help you to have the workout you so desire. I have personally done some research of my own and found the best ones out there. Here is a list of great workout apps for your mobile device.
iPump iOS ($9.99)
iPump is one of the best out there. If you go to the gym at least 3 times a week and struggle with getting a good variety of workouts this app can defiantly help out. iPump is a visual type of app, meaning its easy on the eyes. The app shows hundreds of workouts with each workout having multiple pictures showing you the correct posture and form for every move. Varying in difficulty, there are moves in iPump that anyone can do.
P90X iOS ($4.99)
If you are an avid P90X user then your going to love this app. The P90X app allows you to track your workouts on a calendar, manage your bodies progression by measuring fat levels and nutritional value, and even gives you achievements for completing certain things. The negative part about this app is that P90X charges you extra for the workouts to be explained on your phone. Actually, you end up paying $59.99 if you want to use the app in its entirety. This is pretty ridiculous being that I have already paid for the home workout videos. Bottom-line, if you have the money, and you love P90X, get this app.
iFitness iOS, Android ($1.99)
iFitness is a pretty cool workout app. It allows you to take detailed notes about your workout including what kind of weight you used, how many reps you did, how much time the workout took, heart rate, and calories burned. It also creates workout routines for people that don’t know where to start right away. Not only that but the app comes equipped with video tutorials for each workout so you can follow along. This is a well rounded app that would benefit anyone working hard on their physique.
Nike+ iOS ($1.99)
This was a fun app to test out. You basically just turn on the GPS on your phone and begin your run or walk. At the end of your workout, the app lets you know the distance you have traveled along with the pace of your workout and the number of calories burned. This one is great for runners or triathletes. You can even share your run on Facebook and Twitter and show your friends what routes you took.
Gym Buddy iOS ($2.99)
Off the official website of Gym Buddy, it asks, “Do you really need your workout log to teach you how to do a bench press?” Assume that when you go to the gym you already know what you are going to be doing and you want a good app to track everything that you have done for you, this is the one. Not really much for beginners, but if your looking for something that gets to the point quick and helps you build muscle, this app is for you.
Do any of you guys use any of these apps for your workout?
