Top 7 Fitness Apps to Track Your Progress


Optimal diet and exercise plays a vital role in our overall health and lifestyle. The addition of fitness apps have made it soo much easy to monitor our progress and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I remember as little as 10 years ago when I started my journey watching everyone lugging around massive notebooks logging everything by pen. Now a days these apps offer a range of features that include exercise tracking and meal planning etc. Saving you countless time.


Below we will take a look at the top 7 fitness apps that I believe can make tracking effortless for you.
