Why a mobile app?

Appropriate for you to know is that mobile apps are ideal assistance for health, fitness, and weight-loss because they are always with us. And they're quite personal as well. It is true that maintaining fitness requires daily habits and lifestyle changes; with this in mind, it becomes easier to know that a few little nudges in the right direction from your mobile phone might actually make the difference.

Also, there are other apps that bring out your competitive side by motivating you to work out. Strava is a precise example. This app which is a running and bicycling app lets you compete against every other person who has signed up to use it. The app collects everyone's routes and times, breaks them into segments, and tells who is the fastest. And should it happen that you're the fastest on the road, everyone using Strava near you will know it. That sounds like fun right?

So, why not grab your phone as we hit the app store together for some awesome fitness apps.
