Yesterday we saw the ranking of the best apps for staying healthy in the diet but this is just a part of what we need to have a healthy body.
Sport and physical activity are essential parts of a healthy life and to do so all we need is time, time off and a good pair of sneakers.
However it is necessary to have a routine and the advice of a professional to do it properly and see the progress. That is why today we bring to AndroidADN a list with the best applications for training and physical activity.
Best Running & Training Apps for Android
Jefit Workout & Fitness is a complete application that provides all the information you need to make a professional fitness routine.
Jefit also has several interesting features like the possibility of training focused on a particular muscle area and define routines. You have complete control of the training recommendations and statistics of the exercises you have left to do.
One of the main features of this app is that it has a complete instructive on each exercise for the area you need. It is capable of carrying a complete record of your weight or BMI and generate a studio for your body explaining you which is recommended to exercise and wich not.
Furthermore, Jefit has an extensive amount of exercises, which you can know just by a touch to your screen to the area you want to exercise.
Adidas miCoach offers one of the most complete user experiences in these applications. This has five types of standard practice among those who are running, walking, cycling and Nordic skiing.
Each workout has different types of levels marked by colors ranging from training planes, progressive, anaerobic or strength and stretching.
The application is able to use the GPS device to take of our statistics of our journey, and give information about the workout time, calories burned, distance traveled and speed.
But Adidas miCoach is not limited to collecting data, but works as a coach throughout the workout commenting if we must accelerate or slow down to keep training intensity.
Just like Adidas miCoach, Endomondo Sports Tracker is a tracker of physical activity, but is itself a social network where you can compete with your friends and share the results of your training.
Using the GPS feature of your device this wizard is able to record the journey that you perform during your workout on a map, so you can take it when you run, walk or ride a bike to get data from the distance , slopes, maximum speed, average and minimum, etc..
Furthermore every certain distance this manager will indicate you these data for you to have an idea of the rhythm you carry.
So far nothing unusual in this type of application, but the most interesting part of this app is on the side of its social network. In this your friends can see physical activity practices and comment in real time, you can set goals as distance or calorie burn and create competitions with friends to see who beats your mark.
Workout Trainer is a personal trainer that lets you plan a workout based on the fitness equipment or exercises you can do at home.
The workouts are divided into categories really useful as weight loss, strengthen the base, increase muscle mass, increase muscle tone, increase endurance and improve flexibility.
All training is customized to our age, gender, level of exercise you want to perform (casual, moderate or severe) and time that we want to spend on each of the sessions.
Also, so you can do the exercises properly, Workout Trainer will give indications as audio, pictures and video.
Although somewhat basic in its functions compared to the application of Adidas, could not miss in this ranking an application of training from Nike.
Nike + Running is an application designed specifically to run and take statistics of this activity. To do this, it uses the accelerometer and GPS sensor in your device, so you just have to take your phone and run …
Among the data recorded we find the distance you travel, the rhythm you carry and the time it takes. While running, the comments in audio lets you know these marks every mile so you can stay focused on your career.
Plus. FIT Radio
Music is a great way to motivate us to exercise, and results vital company in long workouts where we have no companionship and that is why we decided to add this essential plus to the ranking.
FIT Radio is an application that offers the required music to motivate you while working out. This is an online radio that transmits the best tracks from international DJs and music of all genres ideal for physical activity.
FIT Radio provides nonstop and at all times different genres of music that you can choose according to your taste. Among these you can find a Top 40, Hip Hop, Rock, House, Indie, Dub Step and more.
The only disadvantage is that you will need internet access while using the application so you’ll need to have your data plan activated if you are training away from home.
This has been our selection of the best applications for training. We hope to come out to do some physical activity together with some of them and leave us your thoughts in the comments about how you’ve done with them or if you believe that some app is missing.
