In a world where the majority of people have smartphones and have them on them close to 24/7, there are thousands of apps to choose from to download and use on phones. I’m no exception to the typical user, and have tons on my phone, some of which I use on a daily basis and some which rarely get used.
Five fitness apps that I’m currently loving include:
1. Apple Health
I’m a traditionalist and don’t wear a step tracker on my wrist (Garmin, FitBit, Apple watch, etc). In fact, the watch that I wear is the same watch that my parents gave me for my high school graduation. However, because I often have my phone on me, especially at work since I never know if I’ll get an emergency call from little man’s daycare, its always interesting to see how many steps I take, especially since I spend quite a bit of time on my feet at school.
I discovered this app a couple of weeks ago, and am absolutely loving it. In short, Achievemint pays you to live a healthy lifestyle. The app allows you to earn points for everyday activities, including walking and running. You can also earn points for tweeting out health related ideas. There is a list of over 40 apps that you can connect to your Achievemint account, and data recorded from each of those apps will earn you points. Once you earn 10,000 points you can cash your points in for $10, which you can pick up via PayPal.

I use FitSnap after almost every run to track and record my run stats. I love that FitSnap allows me to post my data on any photo that I take, and helps me to visually track my training.
4. Road ID
For safety reasons, I carry my phone on me when I head out the door for my runs. The Road ID app not only allows me to keep emergency information recorded in my phone, but also allows me to keep my emergency contact information posted on the home screen of my phone. Should something happen to me, somebody can easily see emergency phone numbers without having to get my phone unlocked.
5. Charity Miles
I’ve previously shared my love for Charity Miles, and I continue to appreciate that I can earn money for charity simply by working out. To date, I’ve earned logged 1,525 miles and earned over $380 for charity.
