When launching into your own health journey, a good way to keep track of it all is by making use of one of the many health and wellness apps from the app store. Here are our top picks for the best ones to keep you on track to reaching your health goals:
The Apple Health App tops the list as it consolidates health data from iPhone, Apple Watch and third-party apps you already use, so you can view all your progress in one convenient place. Not only that, but it is also already downloaded on your phone, making it the easiest one use when kickstarting your fitness regime!
2. Nike Training Club
Nike Training Club is one of the best (and completely free) workout apps out there. You can filter different styles of workouts by what part of your body you are looking to target, or what kind level of fitness you are, ensuring that you are able to get the most out of it.
When we talk about health and wellness, we don't just mean diet and exercise. Headspace, albeit somewhat pricey, is the best app to help maintain your mental health, offering daily guided meditation to help with stress, sleep and focus during the day.
Similarly to the Health app, the FitBit app is another great way to monitor your steps, heart rate and overall health throughout the day. While it is best used with a FitBit watch, it also works fine just on it's own!
The Calm app is another great option for guided meditation that focuses more on relaxation, and while still somewhat pricey, is slightly more affordable per month than Headspace.
If tracking calories or macros works for you, MyFitnessPal is a great way to monitor what you eat during the day! It also offers up handy nutrition facts and a calorie calculator
MINDBODY is a super convenient way to find and book new workout classes in your area which you can filter by location, date and fitness level.
8. Couch to 5k
Finally, Couch to 5K is the perfect app for beginners wanting to increase their fitness levels and be able to run 5km in just 8 weeks, with the program coaching you through 30 minute runs, three times per week.
