Fitness Apps | The LV Guide

Each new year inspires promises for a happier, healthier you. But as soon as the diets don’t work accurately or the workouts become too hard, it’s easy to become discouraged. We’ve dug deep to find the best apps and websites that’ll be your best friend on this journey to transformation.

MyFitnessPal has an app that is consistently rated the top fitness app by users. It’s most notable feature is the barcode nutrition scanner that helps you to keep track of every calorie you intake. You can import recipes, track workouts, and  lose weight in a healthy way. After all, abs are made in the kitchen!

The Pocket Yoga app is perfect for all level users. Never done yoga in your life? No problem. This app has illustrations, descriptions and benefits for over 200 yoga poses. Now is the time to become that yogi you’ve always aspired to be.

MindBody is a perfect app to have if you find yourself in a new place and need to find a new gym to call home, or simply want to switch up your environment. MindBody will connect you to CrossFit gyms, massage studios, group workout classes and find you the best offers and deals while doing it.

Maybe you have your heart set on running a 5k but don’t know where to start. There’s an app for that! Couch To 5k recognizes that you may be a couch potato right now, but with 30 minutes a day, 3 days a week for 9 weeks, you’ll be the first one to cross the finish line.

Finally, YOUTUBE! There have never been more fitness bloggers or training videos available. You can do online pilates, yoga, or training sessions with certified personal trainers. Some of our favorite videos are by Kayla Itsines, POPSUGAR Fitness, FitnessBlender and blogilates.

The time is NOW and the possibilities are endless. 2017 is your year, so get off your couch and try one of these sites. There are so many different ways to get in shape, odds are you’ll find the perfect way that works for you.
