23 Free Health And Fitness Apps You Need To Download Immediately
Whether you're trying to lose weight, train for a 5k, or just track your sodium intake, there's an app for that.
"Take pictures of everything you eat and log it on this app. You can follow other people and find new recipes. It holds you accountable, and they also have lots of little features like water tracking and goal setting. The community that I’ve connected with on this app is so wonderful and supportive, and it’s a great way to visualize your food and see how you can improve!"
"This is great for diabetes management. It's simple, fun to use, and taming my diabetes monster encourages me to pay closer attention to my blood sugars and factors that can raise/lower it."

"They test your fitness level and give you a plan. You won’t do the same fitness routine every day; they switch it up and offer free music! The app also teaches you how to do the exercises with 'how-to' videos. For someone who’s never worked out and is overweight and out of shape, this is perfect for beginners!"
12. Zombies, Run!
"You get a narrative, and change your pace according to the story. You can also change the settings based on if you're running outside or on a treadmill, and whether you want zombie attacks to occur — meaning you run faster more often. No greater motivation to get in shape than running from zombies!"

"Simple Workout Log is AMAZING for things like weight lifting, cross fit, or anything that includes routines, sets, and reps. I use it every time I go to the gym!"
—Aeryn La Mar, Facebook
"It has specific workouts for newbies, pros, etc. It shows you how long the workouts are and how many calories you burn. If you don't know how to do a workout move (froggers for example) during the workout session, theres a video showing you how to do the moves. I like that they feature sport stars and well known trainers’ workouts that you can do yourself. You WILL feel the burn!"
22. Fitness Blender
"You can sort through the videos based on calories burned, length, difficulty, and type of workout (cardio, toning, cool down, etc.). The workouts are just as good as many classes offered by gyms, but they're 100% FREE! Plus many require little to no equipment and can be done in the privacy of your own home."
