What's the best fitness app?

Ideally, I'd like one app that tracks both diet and activity. I currently use MyFitnessPal to track what I'm consuming and Strava, sometimes, for my workouts.

    Gyroscope

    A new OS for the human body

    Kunal Bhatia50Co-founder & Design Lead @SlidesUp Β· Written
    Check out Gyroscope. I'm with @mscccc on this one. You are already using the best apps for the job. Gyroscope will integrate and visualize your data in cool ways!

    Gyroscope will give you the best overview of your health, but it works BEST if you integrate it into other apps. If you're looking for a fitness "app" I would have to ask what type of fitness? I think of fitness along the same lines as apple health. I also try to think of "low friction" data collection, so apps that take the least input and give the greatest in return. Activity: Moves App Sleep: Sleep Cycle Nutrition: MyFitness Pal (requires you to "log" food, but you can scan.) Mindfulness: Calm (requires you to "Start" a meditation to track.) My "fitness" stack photo here: Good luck.

    Gyroscope lets me visualize my days and months with cool graphs and maps. It also integrates with Fitbit, MyFitnessPal, and Strava. Also tracks my music and productivity on my MacBook. Pretty cool because at the end of the month, I can see where I've been and how much time I've spent running, working at coffee-shops, commuting, etc. I really enjoy my Pro subscription because the developers behind it are always updating/fixing the app and talking to subs via a Facebook group.

      Great team working on a great platform.

      UI and relevance of data is front of mind with the team - which is a good thing.

      I've been a pro user since day 1 and truly recommend the platform

      It is nice app to see simple overviews of how much time you have spent Online, movement and places but you need to use those apps.

      I absolutley love inKin! I have been a user of this platform for approx 3 months now. I have used inKin first personally, joining in on month-long challenges. I am so thankful for a platform that allows me to push myself in more areas than just steps! Since starting I have created multiple challenges for the world wide audience, as well as invited colleague friends and created a Wellness Platform for us to challenge each other and stay accountable at work. Once all of their bugs are terminated - this will be one powerhouse of a platform! I could not recommend it more! My ONLY complaint - there are not enough people I know on it!!!! :)

    I use Strava daily. The combination of social features, solid integration with Garmin and other fitness hardware, and helpful analytics makes it a killer (cheap) app for runners and cyclists.

    I've been using Strava for years, it's a beautiful, seemingly simple app that can provide deep metrics on your run, ride or other exercise. You also connect with other people using the app worldwide.

    Freeletics

    High intensity workouts & training plans

    Elias V.Founder & CEO, MinuteHero Β· Written
    Freeletics actually has an entire suite of apps for running, workouts (gym and bodywheight only) and nutrition as well. Their workout are not for the fainto of heart though!

    I've been using Freeletics for a few months now and I definitely recommend giving it a go. The coach subscription now includes all of their apps (except Nutrition which you don't really need anyway, to be honest - you can find that info in a good book or nutrition blog). The Bodyweight exercises seem to randomly swing from 'kinda hard' to 'make you want to vomit' but I'm sure there is method to the madness!

    It's easy enough to go to your daily spin class or run a few miles at the gym, but fitbod does a great job teaching you how to strength strain each part of your body. The app is simple to use and integrates with apple health kit. This should be used with a meal prep/diet and cardio tracking app of your choosing.

    Delightfully simple, fitbod tracks what muscles you've worked out, tracks what weights you do what exercises them at, pulls together a solid 30min workout and links you to simple youtube videos of how to do them.

    Lifesum

    Lifestyle tracker and calorie counter

    Mike Coutermarsh73Code @ GitHub Β· Written
    Would be worth checking out Lifesum also. I think you're already using the best apps available though πŸ˜€. I haven't found anything perfect for tracking both. I think it's a tough space since what people do for diet/exercise is generally so different. Too much to fit in a single app.

      I've been using Lifesum for almost 3 years now. Love it. Clearly been helping me with weight loss at the beginning and maintenance now. I highly recommend it. Extra point for that veggie tracker with the cutest broccoli ever. πŸ₯¦

    • I just started using Lifesum on a daily basis and I must admit that its friendly tips and nice design really help to stay focused on your goals. Lifesum offers some tests and can suggest you a diet, daily calories limit based on your parameters and goals. Lifesum helped me to switch from tea to water very fast because this made my stats look nicer :)

    Alas, it won't track your nutrition, but I find Strong to be the best workout tracker I've found given my pretty basic needs (tracking reps, weight, time, etc). It's basically a special purpose database!

    Easily the best workout tracker on the market. It has a great design and feature set. It uses a pay-once IAP unlock, which is way better than the shitty anti-consumer subscription models plaguing most competitors.

    Circuits has ton's of circuit training workouts. I built this for myself because I personally believe it's the best way to workout, if your goal is to get fit, strong and spend the least amount of time at the gym. I couldn't find an app that provides a shit ton of circuits (I get bored of doing the same stuff), which is why I built it, and scraped the Internet for literally every circuit existing. I don't do this as a way to promote my own side-project, I just think this is the best app for doing high-intensity training.

    Lose It!

    Snap a photo of your food to get nutritional facts

    Not sure why the PH page focuses on one feature of the photo snap, but this is a competitor to MyFitnessPal that has been around forever, and has a much better database without the multitude of incorrect food entries you cannot edit.

    Although this app's UI is a bit dated , its scientific infrastructure is remarkable.Basically, it takes a number of parameters like weight,height etc, and guides you into undertaking a number of exercises of a variety of physical conditions such as Strength,Speed,Flexibility,Body Composition and Endurance and then calculates a customized exercise program tailored to the user depending on what the user wants to achieve i.e loose weight,built up strength or endurance etc. It's free to use but if you want to get to the advanced exercises you can get them for cheap like $2.99 if I remember right.So give it a try!
