2019 has arrived and for countless revellers, it’s time to take stock of the old and recommit to the new. Yes, it’s New Year’s Resolution time! Should a revamped diet and exercise plan be a component of your resolution list we have a few apps that promise to support your diet, exercise and healthy living goals:
Surprised to learn that a Costco hot dog has 552 calories and 12 grams of saturated fat? With MyFitnessPal, users have access to a vast database of calorie and nutritional information for both name-brand packaged foods and homemade meals.
Whether you are embarking on your first run or training for a marathon, MapMyFitness enables athletes to track their workouts and analyze performance data. Personal training plans adapt to your unique fitness level and guide you with audio coaching. Featured challenges will appeal to those with a more competitive nature.
Speaking of competition, cyclists, runners and the occasional skier looking for an extra challenge will enjoy Strava, a fitness tracking app which analyzes workout data and pits members against each other on a leaderboard.
Community minded and feeling generous? Charity Miles will track personalized activity and donates money to a charity of your choice for every mile you run, walk or cycle.
Naturally, for resolutions to stick, we must break nasty habits and form better ones, and of course, since it is 2019, there is an app for that. In fact, there are countless apps emerging on the market designed to assist with habit formation.
