My Fitness Pal
My Fitness Pal provides a hands on approach to helping its client reach their personal fitness goals. When creating an account users enter in weight, age, and activity levels. Users also select whether they want to gain, maintain, or lose weight. From here the app determines how many calories a person should consume a day to achieve their ideal weight. The app also provides users with the ability to track how many calories consumed, calories burned from exercise, and water intake per day. My Fitness Pal is extremely versatile, it connects to different fitness apps and devices which aid in tracking your fitness progress.
Map My Run
Map My Run is a top rated running app. On the app users can track their runs. The app records the directions of previous runs, times, and calories burned. It also enables a user to connect with friends to share running paths. The ability to workout and support friends provides users with motivation to reach personal goals. Map My Run is able to connect to My Fitness Pal and automatically record exercises and calories burned in the app.
Fitbit Tracker
The Fitbit Tracker app is able to be connected to the My Fitness Pal app, but the app itself is also capable of completing the same functions as My Fitness Pal. When connected to a fitbit, the app can record daily activities, such as steps taken and sleeping patterns. It can also be set to track different types of activities such as running and swimming. If a user does not have a fitbit, daily steps can be recorded using a smartphone. The app also provides users with reminders and rewards when goals are met, to keep people motivated. When connected to My Fitness Pal, steps, exercise, and calories burned will be directly recorded into the app.
