Our 6 Favorite Fitness Apps for the iPhone

Nike TrainingClub

The advent of mobile technology has made it easier than ever to get healthy. With reminders in your pocket and advice at your fingertips, these mobile apps will help you set fitness goals – and keep them.

1. Nike Training Club (Free): This app is not for the faint of heart. Billing itself as a “personal trainer,” it offers more than 60 full-body workouts with step-by-step instructions. You can choose a 30 or 45 minute workout, or target specific areas for 15 minutes each. It encourages you to set goals and track your progress, and gives you “rewards” when you reach milestones.
2. Lose It! (Free): In order to succeed in a well-rounded fitness program, eating right and counting calories is a necessary evil. Lose It makes it easy and even (dare I say it?) fun to track meals, calories, exercise and more. You can also connect with your friends for added support in keeping your goals.
3. Hundred Pushups ($1.99): Hundred Pushups is pretty much what it sounds like; a training program to help you achieve 100 consecutive pushups. Pushups are one of the best exercises out there because they work so much of your body – arms, abs, lower back and core. Reaching the end of this program is a huge accomplishment. Now drop and give me 100!
4. Munch 5-A-Day (Free): One of the most important aspects of weight loss is eating right. While there are plenty of apps available to help you track calories or tell you what not to eat, we prefer this one, which helps you get in the habit of having your recommended five portions of fruit and vegetables a day.
5. C25K ($2.99): Similar to Hundred Pushups, this app (which stands for Couch to 5k) will take you from couch potato to 5k runner in 9 weeks. Designed for non-runners, it alternates between running and walking and keeps workout sessions to a manageable 30-40 minutes, 3 days a week.
6. RunKeeper (Free): If you’re already a runner, this app’s for you. Using finely tuned GPS technology, it tracks your entire run, including length, time, pace, right down to the precise route you took. A cool feature is that you can opt to turn on a “coach” that will let you know when you fall behind your goals. RunKeeper made our list because it’s free, but another great running app is Nike+ GPS, which is similar but has the added bonus of connecting with Facebook so your friends can cheer you on during your run.

“The staff and doctors at the New York Bariatric Group are amazing! They are always patient, helpful, and very understanding and pro-active with questions, problems, etc. After Lap Band surgery I feel fantastic. For the last 6 years I have not had to worry if my clothes would fit. I have been able to maintain my weight loss, and have so much more energy.”

It was great. After a couple of days I was back on my feet and going, with three boys you don’t have time to be down. Now, my kids have to keep up with me!"

"I was concerned about my health, my blood pressure, cholesterol, my mobility, my flexibility. A few friends told me about NYBG and I went to a seminar. I wanted to live a healthier life and live a long life. My recovery was great, after a week I was 100%. My doctor, Dr. Sekhar, has the best personality in the world."

"I had a couple of friends who had bariatric surgery done by Dr. Garber a few years back and I decided to make the appointment. My favorite thing about the surgery is not being able to eat that much, eating whatever I want but in smaller portions. My results are amazing"
