Best free fitness and diet apps

A smart phone as a platform for fitnessIn modern society, it is easy to become decadent and forget that we have to be strong for ourselves and for future generations. That is why we need to show the new generations that we can live happy, healthy lives in this fast-paced world. Here are a few of the highest rated and most effective free fitness and diet iOS and Android applications to help you achieve a healthier lifestyle.

Nike has been a pillar of the fitness community for years, so it only makes sense that they would invest in a free app to help people gain control of their bodies. The Nike+ Training Club is an iOS and Android app that consists of over one hundred different workouts for beginners and veterans. Each workout is complete with a video tutorial, so any user can effectively use Nike+ to the maximum potential.

Another iOS and Android app that can help is Fitnet. This app puts a smartphone's camera to good use by enabling the user to actually watch the exercise experience. It will alert the user to ways they can improve and also provide feedback so the user can have a personal experience that resembles using their own personal trainer.

A fairly new app, Endomondo, begins with a test that shows the user's specific stage of fitness and then suggests forms of exercise that are appropriate. This app is specialized to create motivation. It is built to keep track of personal records and alerts the user when levels of fitness are achieved or exceeded. If personal records are inadequate, there is also a community connected to the app that one can compete against to get higher scores.

Many running apps exist, but few also take cycling into account. Strava Cycling and Running does both. Strava is not only focused on individual fitness, but it also strives to connect cyclists to others by adding unique challenges, such as a competition to see who can capture the best photo, which can be used to add motivation to a workout.

Fitness is an important part of a healthy life, but nutrition is equally important. MyFitnessPal can help count calories and log meals with minimal effort. This app can save time and help the user understand what they do right and wrong with their diet. This app would make a helpful addition to any of the other fitness apps listed.

Before a meal is recorded, the right food needs to be found and OpenTable can do just that. OpenTable can help the user find the right restaurant in the user's price range. Not only does the app help find the right place to eat, but it can also set reservations for those special nights.

Kitchen Stories
If going out to eat adds too little excitement, then the Kitchen Stories app can create an adventure in the kitchen. Kitchen Stories gives detailed instructions, alongside pictures, to help users craft any of the healthy meals listed. Detailed nutritional information will help the decision process, along with information on how difficult the recipe is and the time necessary to make it.

All of these iOS and Android apps can help start the journey to a healthier and brighter lifestyle, from fitness to food. These apps can help make each day an adventure and show new generations that a fit and healthy life is possible.
