I use RunKeeper to track my workouts and My Fitness Pal to track my food. I really like My Fitness Pal because you can scan your food in. I wish they made an app for both!

Hello,

if you do high intensity interval training (HIIT, Tabata, etc.) I recommend you this timer:

I use iRunner, Map my Run, Run Keeper and RouteLoops all for different purposes and like how they all work. My problem is being able to see the app while I am out in the sun running. Does anyone have any solutions to the glare and dark screen in the sun. I also have Tech gloves that will work on the screen when its cold and I don't want to go barehanded. Thanks for your help.

Hello People!

Okay, so I want to challenge myself with P90x soon. I saw that one of the cheapest options would be to just buy it from i tunes.
I don't know anything about apple products and do not have an i pad or i phone. Would it be still possible for me to watch the video with i tunes on my computer? Sorry for this stupid question but... well, I lived my whole live with Microsoft so far. :P

I find the Nike+ app to be pretty awesome. You can put playlists on it and it tells you how far you are going of course! You can also do challenges to beat old PR's and play 'tag' with friends (although I haven't done that yet since I'm still pretty slow!). There is an app that you can get that zombies chase you, but at the speed I currently go, I would get eaten immediately.

One of those I have is iTREADMILL. I use it to track miles, time and calories burned.

I really want a reliable pedometer-type gadget that I can clip to my clothes; so I don't have to carry it around like my iPhone and iPad. I miss tracking miles and steps at home because often I'm not carrying either iPhone or iPad : (

Suggestions? Thanks!

Runkeeper. I've found it to be fairly accurate, and I use it with bluetooth (wireless) sports headphones - it gives me oral updates based on my settings (I programmed it to give me total time, average speed, and current speed every half mile). I used Endomondo pro, and I liked it, but Runkeeper is more customizable in terms of feedback. Plus, Runkeeper's voice is more pleasant than Endomondo. Endomondo is nice for sharing, though. Your friends can see where you are running in real time and send you cheers that are read to you. The app also shows altitude. You can get these on Runkeeper, but it costs $5 a month for the pay version - not worth it in my opinion. Haven't tried imapmyrun yet, but it doesn't appear to have the feedback features I want.

Thanks all for your input on iPhone apps. FYI, there appear to have been recent changes to RunKeeper that have affected the accuracy of the GPS -- now it's getting bad reviews for the GPS allegedly being wildly inaccurate. If folks have an earlier version of RunKeeper that's working well for them, that's great -- but after reading the reviews, I decided to try iMapMyRun. Going to take the dogs out in a few minutes and give it a test walk....

Runkeeper for excercise and Lose It! for tracking food eaten. My favorite feature of the Lose It! app it that you can see a whole week's totals on one screen- it gives a good perspective on where the challenging parts of the week are.

I just found that Pedometer GPS+ App and used it for the first time, it seems good and I am only using the Free version. Did you buy the $2.99 App and do you think it's worthwhile to get it?

I used runkeeper and jog log but recently I spent $2.00 and bought the nike + app and I love it. I have the sensor in my shoe so it works when I am on the treadmill or I use the gps when I am outside. They have wonderful challenges that you can sign up for and it tracks where you are with others in the challenge. I joined the walk 500 miles in 2012 as well as a mile a day challenge in 2012. It also lets you set individual goals so you can keep pushing yourself. You can even play tag with friends. I have really stepped up my workouts because of this app. I have added over 10 miles per week to my workout just because I love the goals and pushing myself.

I like the imapmyrun app as well. I use it to track speed when I walk and when I run so I can accurately track my fitness each time I'm out. It seems to be quite accurate, and it's nice that I can just turn it on, put the phone in my pocket and go. Plus it has an "auto pause" so if I do have to stop along the route (i.e. when my dog decides to take a bathroom break about a half mile into the walk), it stops the clock until I get going again.

I also use the Spark People app to track my fitness minutes and food eaten. Nice and easy setup on that app too.

Thanks for the suggestions! If anyone has more droid suggestions, I am all ears!!

@JENNY32WI- the SP does allow you to scan nutritional information. It is still in beta so there are a lot of foods missing. But on the food tab, on the top left there is an icon for scanning a barcode.

I just found Pedometer PRO GPS. Since I don't run, it's great for walking and even if I'm not walking far, if I'm going any distance I find it very helpful. Tracks the distance, steps, calories, average speed and time, I can map my route, and I can listen to my music at the same time.

My Fitness Pal is good, too. I just jumped back on the wagon so I have to get familiarized with my apps again but I think MFP allows you to scan labels to input nutritional information. If SP allowed that, it would be great!

I only use two. SparkPeople for tracking food throughout the day, and iMapMyRun for tracking walks and hikes.

Another health-related one that I rely on very heavily is iPeriod, which is a lifesaver for someone as disorganized as me. I haven't had a surprise period since I got iPhone!

Stats: Female, 5'4", 28 years old.

Goal: From 152 (07/24/2011) to 125 by December, 2011. DONE! December 4th weighed in at 124. In 2012 I've been maintaining around 122, which is a thirty pound loss. My BMI has gone from 26.1 to 20.9 since following the Spark plan!

I know this sounds crazy, but my favorite app that I use for fitness purposes is the Netflix App. I absolutely hate walking/jogging on the treadmill because it is so boring! I have found that when I watch a quick episode of Family Guy(which is 30-min), the time passes by quickly and I am not bored.

I used RunKeeper for the first time yesterday, and I love it! It played my music for me, but then every five minutes told me how I was doing. I found it really motivational - as my split times would get lower, it made me want to pick up the pace. Plus I also like how it told me how far I'd gone, too, as I'm wanting to increase my distance.

I highly recommend RunKeeper, now, too - especially as its free!

If I choose to not do anything differently today, tomorrow is going to be exactly the same as yesterday.

Can't get my iPhone to work in my current location, so I am glad I did not rely on any of their apps heavily.

They will walk and not be faint.

I started out using Loseit before I found spark people. Now, I mostly use spark people, but I prefer LoseIt's recipe feature... sometimes when i'm playing with a recipe and I'm not sure how its going to turn out, but I want to know the calories and nutrients, etc, so I put it into Lose It instead of uploading it onto the sparkrecipes site. (I guess that's not really for fitness, though!)

i want to check out Nike + iPod, which came with my phone... and I've just downloaded Runkeeper.

Thanks for all the great suggestions!

If I choose to not do anything differently today, tomorrow is going to be exactly the same as yesterday.

I have a droid. I use some of the apps listed below (edmondo, sparkpeople, etc); but I also use four other apps not listed. These are pullups, squats, situps, and pushups all by Rittr Labs. They don't require any exceptions such as internet access or account access. They are used for wanting to increase the amount of each of these things to a goal over time. Even if it is only the ability to try and do 1 (pull ups are hard!!!).

Since I don't like to run (I'm more of a zumba girl) I don't use a gps so I pretty much use the sparkpeople app

I use iMapMyRun also and love it. Once the run/walk is downloaded, you can even do a "fly over" of your route.

My favorite is Endomondo... it's FREE (a biggy for me lol) but it's also just very user friendly. It can track just about any type of exercise, not just running, and has several different modes too. You can also set goals. If you sync it to facebook it will post when you start and finish an activity, which is kind of fun, and it also automatically uploads your workout to the website (which is also free), where you can do even more stuff including joining challenges!

To me this is a lot of fun features in one app... all for free! They also have a pro version if you want to add even more, but to me the free version is more than enough.

I have a Droid, but most of the apps are still the same. The main ones I love are:

iMapMyRun
SparkPeople app
C25K lite

The iMapMyRun is a great app. It does gps tracking of your run and you can record it to your MapMyRun profile or to Facebook/Twitter/etc. Plus it runs in the background so I can run my music and C25K, too!

Never give up on something you can't go a day without thinking about.

Yesterday you said tomorrow.

I use 100 Pushups and Lose it! And have lost a total of 15 lbs in 11 weeks :)
I've also downloaded the Nike Training Club app but only used it once. It was a pretty tough workout even at the beginner level, but I hope to give it another try in a few weeks. I know it will yield some great results if I can dig my heels in.

There are no "tricks"". There's only working hard, eating right, and knowing that you can do whatever it is you decide to do.

I've had a smartphone for a while but for some reason I was using a really crappy pedometer app, and only discovered RunKeeper two weeks ago - I LOVE it!!
It tracks my route and pace and speed and appears to be fairly accurate.
It also documents your runs well - there's an option to take pics and save them to 'that run', and as soon as you finish your workout it asks how it went so you can write a few words about how you feel 'live'. Of course, you also have the breakdown of pace (each minute as well as interval) and elevation which you can track on the website in co-ordinance to the map of you route.
you can build your own workouts and get audio cues and info.
And it doesn't stop working if you leave the app, which is a huge plus.
This is all in the free version - I don't even know what the added features of the 'elite' version are.

I just got an iPhone so for the last week, I've been using RunKeeper. I love how it tells me what time I'm at and what my rate is. You can set up all kinds of things it tells you and how often. It's very motivating for me and makes me want to run more.

I'm not a runner - but I use Cardio Trainer for my walking. It indeed will work for running, just not my choice. I really like that app.

I agree, for running/jogging mapmyrun or runkeeper are the best. I also really like GAINfitness, it has 30 minute workouts for strength training.

I pledge to never see my highest weight on a scale EVER again

It's actually pretty simple. Either you do it, or you don't!

Just got my first smart phone. What is your favorite fitness app? Also, I'm specifically looking for something to use while running...maybe map it or tell me splits. Anyone have a suggestion for a running app?

Thanks! Peace & Blessings, Candy
