RunKeeper App Review {Health and Fitness Month}

RunKeeper: Track workouts, miles and training. GPS and mapping functions.

Bottom line: Lots of options to personalize. Online site adds even more functions.

Company description or click here: RunKeeper is a mobile fitness platform with millions of users that enables runners and other fitness enthusiasts to track, measure, and improve their fitness. Though RunKeeper started out as a mobile fitness tracking app, we've expanded to include a vibrant online health & fitness community, and have integrated with over thirty devices, apps, and web services across a broad range of health categories to date.

Review by Recreation Programmer - Fitness, Steven Harben, City of Wylie:
RunKeeper is one of the few fitness apps that I actually use of my Android. I love the ability to track distance, speed, and pace during my workout. If you listen to music on your phone while you run/walk, RunKeeper gives you the ability to receive audio cues at pre-determined times or distances to help you make sure you are keeping your desired pace.

Not much of a runner? RunKeeper actually allows you to choose from 13 different outdoor activities including mountain biking, rowing, and even swimming (don’t take your phone swimming with you, though). Your workouts are saved in your account and are available to view and edit using their online site. Do really well in a workout, and RunKeeper will send you an email “trophy” congratulating you for your furthest distance in a day/week/month, etc.

Even if you just want to get moving but don’t know where to start, RunKeeper provides free training plans to get you to your first 5K, ½ or full marathon, or even just to lose weight. RunKeeper even allows you to get your friends involved by adding them to your “team” which allows you to encourage them to go for a run, walk, or bike ride. You can also automatically post your workouts to Facebook or Twitter to keep your friends updated on your progress.

Overall, RunKeeper is a great app that has everything you need to get you started on a fitness program, as well as provide you the tools and encouragement to get you to your ultimate goal.

My Fitness Pal App Review {Health and Fitness Month}

My Fitness Pal: Calorie counter, diet and exercise journal.

Bottom line: Simple. Effective. Free!

Company description or click here: Now you can log your food and exercise wherever and whenever you'd like - even if you can't get to a computer.

With our mobile apps for iPhone, iPad, Android, Blackberry, and Windows Phone 7, your MyFitnessPal account is always at your finger tips. All our apps work with our website and have access to the same comprehensive database of over 2,318,000 foods and restaurant items. Any changes you make on your phone will be synchronized to the web and vice versa — so you always have complete and up-to-date access to your account.



Review by Fitness Guest Service Specialist, Brittany Williams, City of Wylie:

By far, this is one of the most helpful iPhone apps I’ve ever used. This app provides categories for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Snacks so you can track what you regularly consume during different times of the day. It also has a separate section to log how much water you drink.

With a vast search bank for food groups, it is easy to record how many calories you’ve consumed. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, you also have the option to create a new food, which is stored for future logs. But that’s only on the nutrition side! This app also breaks down exercise categories into cardiovascular and strength training and allows for notes on both food and exercise.

In just a little time, noting all you eat and drink becomes a fast, easy habit. Knowing you have to record everything you eat tends to promote more responsible food choices. It also makes you starkly aware of portion size and calorie ratios.

Check out upcoming mobile fitness app reviews during Health and Fitness Month. Wylie Recreation’s team has selected four popular mobile fitness applications to try out for several weeks and provide hands-on feedback each Monday. The four selected apps are all FREE, and include a selection for both Android and iPhone formats.

1/14/2013 - Run Keeper – Android - Track workouts, miles and training. GPS and mapping functions.

1/21/2013 - Pedometer FREE – iPhone - Measure steps, distance, workout time, caolories burned, speed and pace.

1/28/2013 - JEFIT – Android - Bodybuilding app. Track body stats, create custom wourkout routines, track progress.
