If you’re looking to lose some weight or stay in shape, and you don’t know where to start, we’ve got you covered. Staying healthy is absolutely important because getting sick nowadays is not cheap. But, with how fast-paced our lives are becoming, finding time to workout and burn some fat has become difficult.

Thanks to technology though, we can now workout with our mobile devices. With a whole slew of fitness and health apps in the Google Play Store, we’ve put together a list of some of the best ways to keeping healthy. We didn’t just limit this list to workout apps; we included ways to keep healthy, either through keeping yourself hydrated, eating right and having easy access to medical assistance.

My Fitness Pal

With how delicious food is, it can get easy to forget how many calories one bar of chocolate can pack. With My Fitness Pal, you can choose your food wisely and stay away from snacks that might slow you down on your road to fitness.

My Fitness Pal has a wide database of over 1,100,000 foods. Type in that burger you’re considering on ordering and find out just how many calories it’s got. Customize your goals based on your specific diet profile; enter your age, gender, and activity level to get the ideal goal for you. Because no diet is effective without a workout, My Fitness Pal also contains over 350 exercises for you to try out.

My Fitness Pal also allows you to track both cardio and strength training, including reps, sets, and weight/rep. You can create an unlimited amount of custom exercises as well. To be able to safely store your exercise data, you’ll need an account at MyFitnessPal.com and you can make an account for free from within the app.

RunKeeper

If you’re a fan of running, you’ll love RunKeeper. RunKeeper is an app for your Android device that specifically caters to runners, walkers, and hikers. Utilizing the GPS features of your device, this app tracks, measures, and improves your fitness by using your Android device’s GPS to track your activities. It measures distance, time, pace, calories you’re burning, heart race and the path you travel on a map. You can literally see your progress and use that to analyze your pace.

If you feel a little lost, RunKeeper can let you know where exactly you are. RunKeeper also provides audio cues and customized interval workout. Unfortunately, for people who workout with kayakking, RunKeeper has yet to include that on its list of activities. There also seems to be some issues with GPS accuracy and inability to post to Facebook. If those little issues don’t deter you, download RunKeeper for free from the Google Play Store to start running.
