Track your workouts with these apps.

Remember the old days when you had to hire a personal trainer to plan and prepare your workouts? Or when you had to wear a pedometer to track the number of miles you ran each day? Now, you don’t need any of that. You just need a smart phone.

Over the past few years, we’ve seen a rapid rise in the number of fitness apps on the market. While it’s great to have so many choices, it can also be overwhelming. Lucky for you, we’ve done all the vetting you need. Check out our list of the top fitness apps you need for your workout.  

Gym Genius

Are you ready to track gains like never before? Gym Genius is the perfect app for weight room junkies. This easy to use app helps you track sets, weight and reps while you work out. It also records your goals, PRs and how often you work certain muscle groups. By logging individual exercises, the app is able to recognize weak areas so you can adjust your training accordingly.

Other top features of Gym Genius include:

  •      Interactive and detailed graphs and logs
  •      Ability to input custom exercises
  •      Tracking of body weight gains and losses

Under Armour struck gold with its suite of connected fitness apps.
