1. Charity Miles


Charity Miles allows your fitness obsession to benefit more than just yourself. Choose a charity in the app before you start your workout and you’ll earn donations for each mile you complete.

2. NexTrack

Improved health and physical fitness are great rewards for the effort you put into your workout, but tangible rewards can certainly help boost your motivation a little more. Wouldn’t it be great if you could get prizes just for exercising? Now you can– that’s where NexTrack comes in. Log your workout in this app and earn cool prizes (discounts, gift cards, and more!)  


3. Zombies, Run!

There are very few things that can motivate you to run more than being chased by flesh-hungry zombies. Zombies, Run! is a story-based workout app that takes place during a zombie apocalypse. Your goal is to help rebuild civilization by running to collect supplies while avoiding having your brains devoured by zombies. The app will provide you with missions and warn you when zombies are coming for you to keep you alert and motivated throughout your run.  

4. MyFitnessPal

Counting calories can be exhausting. Do you really want to take the time to look up how many calories are in that Oreo you’re sneaking before dinner? Never fear, MyFitnessPal is here to do it for you. The app has over 5 million foods in their database, so all you have to do is record what you eat and it will count the calories for you. You can also use the app to track the calories you burn—simply enter the activity and duration you completed and it will calculate the calories burned (fun fact—did you know 20 minutes of belly dancing can burn 100 calories?)
