Active Apps

With Summer in full swing everybody wants to be part of the ‘get-into-shape’ action.  December holidays is around the corner and nobody feels like hitting the beach when they are out of shape (yikes!). Sometimes though, getting active and into shape is much easier said than done…

This time of year our energy levels are usually low and most of our exercise and healthy diet aspirations get easily deflated. But alias, don’t loose hope just yet! Sometimes all you need is that little bit of extra motivation and what can be a better source of inspiration or easier to use than a Personal Trainer in your pocket?

Yes! We’re talking uber cool Active apps on your mobile device that makes fitness fun and helps you stay motivated.

Here are our Top 5 Active Apps:
Active Apps #1: Strava

Strava App

 Strava is a GPS cycling and running App which lets you track your running and riding with GPS, join challenges, share photos from your activities, and follow friends.

Apps that track runs and bicycle rides are a dime a dozen, but Strava has a unique hook: competition.

When you run or bicycle with Strava, you’re competing against other Strava members who have pounded or biked the same routes. If you’re fast enough, your name might just appear at the top of a leaderboard. You can also use the app for more traditional tracking, because it records your distance, time, speed, and so forth.
