Three Free Apps for Getting Fit

Tags : 

Whether you’re an Olympian or an average civilian just trying to shed some pounds, chances are there’s room to make your workout a little more fun. Here are some fun apps to try integrating into your fitness routine!

Charity Miles

This application donates money to charity for each mile your run, walk, or bike–specifically, twenty five cents for each mile walked or ran, and ten cents for each mile biked. How cool is that? Users can pick from a wide range of charities, including the ASPCA, Wounded Warrior Project, Autism Speaks, and many more. For any do-gooders out there, it’s just about the most satisfying way to justify your daily workout. Bonus tip: many animal shelters need volunteers to walk dogs–if pets are your soft spot, get your miles in while giving an animal in need some fresh air!

Zombies, Run!

Inject some real urgency into your run or walk with this app. Picture it: you’re jogging (or walking) along, listening to your tunes or podcast, when suddenly you hear the moans of the undead interrupting and need to run. The app ups the narrative ante with specialized missions and more. It’s a great way to stay fit and kill time before the Walking Dead comes back on air!


FitStar tailors workouts based on your personal fitness levels and goals. At the end of each workout, it offers a short series of questions, which it uses to craft a new workout designed to challenge your body without crushing it.

Of course, an app alone can’t do everything–you should consult your physician before starting any new fitness routine, and consider contacting a sports medicine professional for more customized information on the best training methods, nutrition, and more for your body.
