    Default Best apps for fitness and exercise?

    Alright guys, for Fitness February we're gearing up to share the best apps for many categories but for now, what are your favorite fitness and exercise apps for iPhone?

    We're looking at ones that show how to properly perform exercises or give exercise routines and regiments (aka workout plans and routines).

    We've found a few we like but we want to know what ones you guys are using!

    I have used Nike Training Club couple times. But mainly looking for emergency personnel training app. More focused on certain muscles, used in my line of work. Not just getting toned, but building that strength needed to preform job effectively and safely...

    Any suggestions?

    FitnessFast
    Simple, and easy to use in the gym, clean UI... no lame social media integration (like Fitocracy) aside from posting your results on FB/Twitter if you want.

    I like the Runtastic apps: squats, sit-ups...

    I don't know of any apps, but the FitBit trackers are amazing. They have an app that synch the tracker right to your iPhone.

    Although there was bad blood between them and Apple, I still use the iFitness app from long ago. I believe there's a new version out in the App Store these days - looks the same as the original one I have, with a few style differences. Regardless of the drama with bogus reviews, etc., the app is still pretty good for workout tracking.

    Found the new version -

    If Runtastic Pro gets me heart rate graphs you will be my hero. I used to use MapMyFitness+ but they took away half the plus features and made you pay a monthly subscription. Horrible.

    As far as apps I use, NPT Boom is good if you like doing circuits where you want to change exercises every X seconds. It beeps over your music to let you know the time has passed.

    For a pretty good exercise selection app, Fitness Free isn't bad for a free app.

    For nutrition I like Lose It! but I haven't used many. Lets you scan barcodes which is kind of a nice feature. Another cool app is Fooducate. Lets you scan items and offers up a score for how healthy they are, as well as alternatives.

    I agree with MyFitnessPal as far as food tracking. Have tracked calories for six months now and lost 100 lbs so far using it. Great app. Easy to use. Love that you can scan your food in. Highly recommend it!

    Another MyFitnessPal user here, rwilliams0926 add me if you want. Last year I started tracking my calories and that combined with working out I dropped 40 lbs in 6 months to get to my goal weight. The devs are great the app is incredible and they have great features coming.

    Shameless plug for Gymfu apps - we've recently updated our apps for press-ups, squats, crunches and pull ups. Each app has motion detection, teaches you how to do the exercise correctly, counts along with your reps, has staged workouts, allows you to battle other users and climb our global leaderboard. Try squatfu for free here:

    Happy exercising!

    I can't believe I forgot Endomondo Pro for tracking running/jogging. The voice coach and feedback is much better sounding than any other running app IMO

    Default Best apps for fitness and exercise?

    I'm using myfitnesspal to track my diet and exercise as it has a great database of food and exercise. I use endomondo pro to measure my exercise as it has step counters, can track walking and many other sports and the best bit of all is it links into myfitnesspal so you don't have to transfer workouts manually, they auto load across. Found all this very motivating and helps me stick to my targets. My sister in law works for the NHS in weight management and she has told me that these two apps are recommended by dietary physio therapists of all apps. Myfitnesspal is free and endomondo pro is 2.99 although there is a free version. I'm not sure of the differences.
