Technology has entered in each sphere of our life, so why not use it for fitness too? With a plethora of options to choose from, we always stay confused as what to use and what not.

Smart bandsSmart watches, and the fitness apps which you are going to read later on in this article, are an amazing way to improve on your already running fitness regime, they add the extra flavor to it, enabling you to have a statistics of your workouts, keep a calorie count of whatever you intake, and reminding you to get up your bed and start working out are just a few of the pretty amazing stuff these things provide us.

Well, let's not talk about the bands and the watches and get back to the main thing, the apps.
The main advantage of these apps is that you can use it with almost any device you already own, so you don't have to buy a dedicated gadget, saving you quite some bucks.

Here is a list of the top 10 fitness apps which I have used so far, and they are pretty useful, they are easily available on Playstore, but if you want, I can provide you the download links for these apps, as some of them are paid.

A lot of these Android fitness apps try to take direct control of your life and help you get into shape. FitNotes by James Gay does the opposite by letting you do what you do and simply offering to keep a log of it. It’s a free app that features no advertising, includes an exercise database to help you properly categorize your workouts, a workout log so you can keep track of what you’re doing, and you can create custom routines and workouts tailored to yourself. It’s a must have app if you go to the gym or participate in DIY fitness.

Google Fit has been around for a while now and has been quietly updated over the last year to give it all kinds of functionality. Its best feature is its complete and total integration with Android Wear which makes this a must-try option for those who rock a smartwatch. On top of that, you’ll get stats to analyze, goals to conquer, and various types of tracking. It’s still a bit more simple than other offerings, but this one is entirely free pretty much forever.

Progression is a recommendation from our readers and it turns out to be a solid fitness application. The app contains built-in exercise regimens for you to follow or you can make your own. This is helpful for people with exercise restrictions or want to work on a specific thing (cardio over weight training, for instance). The app relies on a time trial style method of motivation where you strive to beat what you did the last time you worked out over and over again. It’s all wrapped up in a very attractive Holo/Material Design interface and it’s free to try!
