Couch to 5k from Zenlabs
If you’ve never been one for running and are thinking of giving it a try, check out this app. It gives you a gentle intro to running and builds up over an eight week period to you running 5k. It tells you when to warm up, when you are half way and when to begin warming down. The pace is achievable and pushes you enough without pushing you too far. You can share your progress on social media so you can compare with friends.

Myfitnesspal
This app is like your reliable best friend, always there to encourage you and provide you with useful advice. It has all the answers you are looking for and allows you to store your fitness progress. Enter your vital statistics including weight and height and the app will tell you how many calories you have consumed and burnt throughout the day. It also subtracts any exercise you carry out and tells you how many calories you have left to consume in the day with your target set. It’s really simple to use and helps you plan what you are eating and how much you should be working out so you make healthy, informed decisions.
