New Year, resolutions, and the like. Everyone, from local papers to Apple to us here at 148Apps are getting the word out about ways to create and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Here’s what we have for you from the past couple of weeks. Stay tuned right here for even more Health and Fitness goodness for your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

Abs Workout For iPad Review
Abs Workout for iPad is definitely a good place for the user to start on their quest for a better body, although Levels 2 and 3 will need to be purchased after a while, as abs gets stronger, and exercises become easier.”

All-in-Pedometer Review
“For the walker, All-in Pedometer is ideal, focusing on one key aspect and doing a fine job of keeping the user informed throughout.”

Gym Genie Review
“Despite the ugly interface, Gym Genie is a solid workout tool. It’s not a comprehensive resource or anything like that, but for what it is – and its 99-cent price tag – it’s not bad at all. For beginners, at least, this could be very helpful.”

Favorite Four iPhone Apps for Sticking to a New Year’s Diet
“As we mentioned in our favorite four apps for keeping New Year resolutions, weight loss (as well as getting into and staying in good healthy shape) tops most people’s list of desired self-improvements. Few other goals are harder to achieve, however. We don’t have the secret formula, but we do have four iPhone apps that make getting into the right shape a lot easier.”

Read The Full Review »

Garmin is renowned for their GPS navigation apps such as Garmin StreetPilot onDemand. Away from iOS devices, it’s also renowned for its numerous fitness watches. The two haven’t been combined however, until now that is. Garmin’s first fitness app has just been announced along with the ANT+ adapter for the iPhone that will allow the use of optional accessories.

The fitness app, Garmin Fit, allows users to track numerous exercise related figures such as speed, pace, distance, time and calories. It maps and automatically uploads workouts to Garmin Connect in order to track totals, set goals and even share workouts with friends and family amongst an online community of more than 70 million activities around the world. With a tap of a button, users can check everything as well as control their music from within the app. Even calls and SMS messages can be checked without interrupting the app and the all important workout.

Upon completion, information and notes can be entered and sent to the user’s account within the Garmin Connect community. A series of graphs and charts means that the user can track how they’re progressing with the past 30 days of activities available from within the Garmin Fit app.

Taking a look at the Garmin Fit screenshots, it looks like it’ll be a very easy app to use keeping everything simple yet just what anyone could want from a fitness tracking app. It’ll be interesting to see how it performs against the likes of RunKeeper.

The ANT+ adapter is priced at $49.99 and enables users to track important figures such as heart rate and cadence directly on their iPhone when paired with relevant optional accessories such as the footpod sensor that allows users to train indoors and still monitor their progress. It’s an ideal accessory for gym sessions as well as outdoor running.

Garmin Fit will be a very affordable $0.99 upon release. Check out the screenshots in the meantime.
