Making Sense Of Sugar

Fitness apps

Apply yourself: a range of fitness apps

The thought of a sweaty gym, a run in the cold rain or getting thrashed at five-a-side is enough to put anyone off an active lifestyle. Besides, exercise is boring, right? Well, these days it doesn’t have to be.



The way in which people can become active is changing.  Opportunities are wide ranging, more engaging and importantly can be fun.  Technology is helping with this – fitness apps can be one way for you and your family to explore and enjoy becoming more active. There are many apps available catering to a wide variety of tastes and budgets which can help make fitting in activities more convenient for your daily routine and lifestyle; making it that little bit easier  especially if you’re time-poor and need a little help with motivation.

You’ll be surprised at the element of fun an app can bring to exercise too – for example, challenging the family to a living room fitness challenge or setting daily goals for everyone to make it more interesting and rewarding .
