With the third wave of COVID-19 impacting our active and social lifestyles once again, now that gyms are closed, take your workout routines indoors. You can still reach your fitness goals if you focus and maintain a dedicated workout routine. Here’s how fitness apps can help.
Apps can help track active minutes, steps, activity, measure resting, and active heart-rate, monitor how much caffeine, water and calories you consume a day to keep you in check.
4 free fitness apps to try
Nike Run Club
The app can help improve strength and endurance within a month and get you running 5kms within weeks. There are a number of plans to choose from. Whether beginner or professional runner, the app monitors your runs by tracking pace, routes, duration, distance and calories burnt.
Nike Training Club
Use it concurrently with the Nike Run Club app, which includes full body strength, conditioning or HIIT workouts. Both apps are designed to take your running to the next level and each guided workout is video demonstrated so you are never flying blind.
Build your runner strength with core, leg, toning or just restore your muscles with easy stretches that are included in the workout logs. You are able to link your run club and training club programs for a synchronized monitoring system to simplify your life.
