The good news is that there are some great apps to support your health and fitness goals. Here is a list of the best apps in fitness, nutrition and life balance!

FITNESS

Pear Personal Coach App

The Pear Personal Coach app talks you through runs, at-home workouts, yoga routines, and even training programs for running races. Real human voices make the audio part of the experience excellent. The app is free, but you can purchase packaged workouts. The Android version is called Pear Interactive Coach.

Charity Miles

Charity Miles is a great friend of FIT4MOM. Such a cool fitness app! All you need to do is choose your charity and go for a walk, run or bike. Companies will donate money to the charity for each mile you go. Of course, it works during Stroller Strides and Body Back too! A great way to do good during your workout!

NUTRITION

Helps you set a calorie goal, track your food and exercise. It has a huge food database and you can scan in labels of your favorite foods for exact nutrients. Just remember, a calorie is not just a calorie. It's the quality of the foods that count!

Another great app that makes calorie and food tracking easy. Easily look up and track the foods you're consuming with the help of a barcode scanner. A recipe calculator helps input custom creations. Track exercises, set diet goals and sync your progress to myfitnesspal.com for free.
