We are in an era when cell phones are an extension of us, so it is not so strange that we seek to be healthy without leaving our mobile devices.
But if you are still not convinced about using a fitness app, here are some advantages that you can consider:
1. Great variety
If you like running, Crossfit, Pilates, yoga, with or without exercise equipment, no matter what your favorite exercise is, you will always find the ideal app.
2. They adapt to you
The best thing about the applications is that you can program them to your rhythm of life, whether you are an expert exercising or a person who just wants to start training.
3. You can see your progress:
The applications usually have a section where you record your progress, whether, in calorie burning, heart rate, distance traveled, hours of sleep, what you eat, etc. When you record your progress, you can set goals and challenges for yourself, which will keep you motivated to continue exercising and taking care of yourself.
4. Create your own eating plan:
Exercise only plays a small part in keeping you healthy; what really matters is your diet. Your chosen app may have a feeding schedule, and let’s be honest, it’s for the best. If not, there are also applications that will help you keep track of your diet.
5. It’s like having your own coach:
The good thing about the applications that when you register and enter certain data, the applications design the exercises and routines that best suit your health and physical condition; it is as if you had a personal trainer.
How Much Do Fitness Apps Cost?
There are applications that are free, but obviously, they have their limitations, and there are apps that, even if you pay a subscription, if we do the math, in the long run, they are much cheaper than any membership in a gym or a nutritionist.
It allows you to follow a training plan if you have no idea how to train or how the progress of a plan should be according to your goals. It also offers you multiple new exercises that you surely don’t know, increasing your repertoire.
They allow you to quantify your distance travelled, kcal. burned (not quite a real result), motivate yourself with the community created by that app, achieve new challenges, etc.
It helps you to follow training, helping you to be constant and persevering in the event that this is one of the reasons why that you do not achieve your goals.
It is cheaper than professional planning and supervision or a gym fee.
From my point of view, nothing to do with the professional and personalized treatment and work of a personal trainer, that’s why the price is also much lower. We recommend that if you have very specific and even difficult-to-achieve goals, do not leave your goals in the hands of a program but rather trust a professional.
You see, they have their good and bad things; it is a matter of which you value and choose well of course!
