My Top 5 Health and Fitness Apps

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Georgia Southern chapter.

So Spring Break’s over? So what! I know it’s not always easy to find time to focus on physical and mental exercise but it is super necessary. Luckily, in this day and age, we have technology help us make our lives so much easier. Want to feel better, look better (however that may look TO YOU), sleep better, and live longer? Make TIME! Even if it’s only 30 minutes, make some time for your health. Need some assistance? Use these 5 easy apps to help you stay spring break fit (mentally and physically) all the way through summer!



Waterlogged: Daily Hydration Tracker 


PROS:  This daily hydration tracker reminds you to drink your daily recommended water intake. It’s fast, easy and even works with Fitbit. 

CONS: It’s not easy to remember to log what you drink, every time you drink.



MyFitnessPal: Calorie Counter & Diet Tracker


PROS: Convienent features, daily dietary considerations, personalized experience.

CONS: Does not include net carbs, resets your goals almost every day. 



Headspace: Meditation Guide


PROS: offers meditation and mindfulness techniques, allows you to track your progress, and easy to use. 

CONS: only offers the basic techniques package for free :(



30 Day Fitness Challenge Log: 7 Minute Home Workout Routines 


PROS: Allows you to have a stable workout schedule and replaces the need to have a physical trainer. 

CONS:  The app is “free to download” but requires in-app purchases. 



Lifesum: Keto Recipes & Calorie Counter


PROS: easy to use and look at, personal diet plan, and offers healthy recipe guides. 

CONS:  doesn’t offer vegetarian meal plans, and does not track vitamins or minerals. 



Fitness apps are a growing trend because they can track your progress, they have some power to motivate you to put your phone to good use, and they help manage your time. There are HUNDREDS of health and fitness apps that you can download from the app store, however, these five offer the most (in my opinion) for little to no $$$. If you’re serious about getting your health on track and keeping it there I highly recommend any of these five.
