Top 2012 Apps for Health and Fitness

Putting food and weight management conveniently at your fingertips

In 2012 there are few excuses left as to why one can’t manage their health and weight. Especially when you consider the millions of health and fitness apps available for Android, iPhone, LG phones, and every other type of mobile device ever engineered. Today’s health and fitness apps, many of which are available for free, will track your calories burned through exercise; measure your heart rate, BMI and blood pressure; recommend recipes and how much water you should drink; and even track your diabetes and sodium intake.
With support from the following 7 health and fitness apps in 2012, there is little excuse to log on and take control of your health!

1. MyFitnessPal (Free)

My nutritionist and my personal trainer always told me that individuals who record their foods consumed will always achieve greater weight loss success than those who don’t. That’s why I suggest MyFitnessPal, an app that puts convenient calorie counting calorie counter at your finger tips—thanks to a huge the food database of over 1.1 million foods (including many fast foods and ethnic varieties).
2. Sodium 101 (Free)

Sodium intake is vital if you’re trying to shed poundage. And if you consume a lot of canned foods and processed sauces—not to mention sprinkle salt on everything—then you should be using Sodium 101 on your iPhone or iPad. Not only does this app tell you the sodium in the foods you love, it also tracks your consumption, which is a must for those with high blood pressure.
3. GluCoMo (Free)

This app should be doctor recommended to diabetes patients in my humble opinion because it tracks blood sugar levels when you’re eating on the go! Not only that, but GluCoMo has partnered with medical doctors—so your insulin dosage is sent to a network of doctors for professional advice and monitoring. How’s that for health support?

4. MapMyFitness (Free)

I use this app every day and can attest to its addictiveness and usefulness. This app maps out your workout route for going to the gym, running, biking and even walking your dog. And the best thing about it—it’s completely free for your iPhone!
5. Digifit ($1.99)

The Digifit app really is a must have on cardio-infused workouts. It tracks your runs, rides or walks as far as distance, time, speed, heart rate, pace and calories burned. And if that wasn’t already plenty, it also keeps track of your weight and blood pressure to make sure you’re working hard enough or sweating within your fat-burning zone.

6. Ab Workouts Pro ($0.99)

If you’re shy about your bulging belly and you’ve decided that 2012 is the year to rid you of your spare tire, then Ab Workouts Pro is the app for you! Created to help you melt the fat around your middle, Ab Workouts Pro features all of the abdominal exercises, core workouts, and flab busting motivation you require for your own virtual trainer who will keep you crunching over email or text whenever you need motivation.

7. Nike + iPod ($20)

You can’t expect to run without decent tunes now can you! That’s where the popular Nike + iPod comes in. Now available for iPhone 3G, iPod touch, and later models, consider this app the personal back-up band that follows you everywhere you run. However, the pure brilliance of Nike + iPod is that it tracks your workout progress (calories burned, distance, heart rate, time and speed) via your iPod touch or iPhone and wirelessly transmits this workout data to nikeplus.com, recording workout data from wherever you are on the go.

Life is Now. Press Play!

PS.

I’ve created a place. A revolution of sorts. A HUB OF BADASSERY.

A place for learning, training, strategy and getting sh*t done.

A place where women unite to act fast, think later, to do in a day what most do in a week, in a week what most do in a month, in a month what most do in a lifetime or not at all. It’s a place for driven, fast-thinking, creative and utterly utterly purpose-driven ‘do what it takes’ women entrepreneurs who know that in order to live the life they truly CRAVE they must be willing to press play NOW.

It’s my Rich Chick Mastermind, and right now I have re-opened the doors, just for a few days. You can come join us either month by month, or VIP your fine self and receive access (yes really!) to every course I’ve ever created. You’ll also receive thousands of dollars worth of bonuses, plus all my NEW live content either way. And to top it off? You’ll get to come meet all the other driven badasses who are out there changing the world. Falling in to who they always WERE,

and who they know they must be.

Come join us gorgeous. Say yes to the life you really want. Say yes to doing what it takes. Say yes to falling into YOU, and being damn proud of it. Say yes to no fucks given that it is ‘supposed’ to be such and such way. YOU KNOW HOW IT’S MEANT TO FEEL FOR YOU.

And you know that that is the way.

Come see what I made you,
