New Year, New You: Fitness Apps

Posted by Jason Wadsworth on January 16th, 2012

Whether your New Year's resolution is to lose weight, have more energy, or just take better care of yourself, the iOS App Store has lots of fitness and health apps to help. We've taken a closer look at the best from Apple's own New Year, New You list to help you pick the ones right for you.

P90X - By Beachbody, LLC
The P90X can be a punishing workout. Use this app to keep on track and keep the muscles burning with a schedule, track and sync progression with the P90X website, and purchase P90X workout bundles with video and audio guides.

Gorilla Workout : Athletic Fitness Training on a Budget - By Heckr LLC
Working out is great, but unless a substantial in-home gym is available, it usually requires a trip to the gym. However, this app will instruct users on tons of different workouts at 4 different levels that require no equipment at all. A great way to get fit on a budget.

Pocket Yoga - By Rainfrog, LLC
Yoga is a great way to workout out at home, but unless a trained yoga instructor is handy it can be hard to do it right. This app will guide users through various yoga workouts with voice instructions and illustrated instructions. Airplay can also be used to play on a larger screen.

There are even more fitness apps, after the break.

Healthy Fast Food: Fast Food Options That Are Healthy

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

The term healthy fast food sounds like a bit of an oxymoron but it is possible to an extent. Some types of fast food isn't as bad as other types. Knowledge is power, so the occassional treat is no bad thing if planned carefully. This is where an app like Healthy Fast Food could help a ton.

Tracking the likes of McDonald's, Burger King, KFC, Subway, Taco Bell and more, the app cleanly and simply lays out the healthiest menu options available. It gives users that chance to know how they can enjoy their favorite food without consuming more calories, saturated fat, and other bad-for-them-stuff than they need to.

While obviously none of it is going to be quite as healthy as a home made salad with no dressing, Healthy Fast Food does allow users to take a calculated break from their diet, thus encouraging them to stick by their regime.

Healthy Fast Food is out now, priced at $0.99.
