This week we are going to tell you about a few fitness apps that have helped keep us motivated for the 10k Cancer Research charity run we are training for.
Fitness apps are the ideal way to improve your health and monitor your lifestyle. Whether you want to discover a new workout, track your diet or record your running route, these apps offer you a convenient way to reach your goals.
Nike offers a few apps including Nike+ Running, which uses GPS to track the distance, time and speed of your run. You can even challenge friends or other users on the app. The Nike Training app has over 100 workouts for various levels and allows you to target specific areas you want to tone. Make sure you download these workouts beforehand and then you can use them without Internet access.
There are several apps that teach you to run a certain distance. The 5k Runner app has helped 4.2 million people achieve their goal thanks to its built-in audio coach.
Recharging your batteries is equally as important when doing any exercise or training. If you are finding it hard to sleep try Pzziz Sleep, which is an app that uses binaural beats and sounds to lull your brainwaves into a relaxing, restful slumber.
