Check out our top four choices for men's fitness apps:
Men's Health Workouts -$1.99
The Men's Health Workouts app, available for the iPhone and Android, gives you access to exclusive workouts created by athletes, strength coaches, and fitness experts from around the world. The app lets you view step-by-step workout instructions, full-color photography, easy tools for logging your performance, and even the ability to share your results by emailing them to yourself or your workout buddy. To make sure you don't move too quickly, the app has a timer which you can use to time your cool-down periods. When you're ready to go again, tap the screen and start again. There are also several add-on packages if you'd like to focus on your core, upper arms, etc.
If the above app sounds good but you're not ready to pay for it, Men's Health Lite is a great way to check out certain features of the app without spending a penny.
Men's Health Magazine – Free
If you enjoy Men's Health Magazine but want a digital version of it, check out the Men's Health Magazine app for the iPad. The app offers several workouts, weight-loss plans, healthy eating tips and more. Recent titles include, “100 Ways to Look Great Instantly,” “Our Ultimate Boot Camp Workout,” “The Good Life at a Great Price,” and more. The app itself is free, but requires a yearly subscription to the magazine for $23.99. Unlike the paper copy, you can cancel your subscription at any time – but don't do it before taking advantage of the many articles that will help you get your beach in shape for the beach.
Lose the Belly (Weight Loss for Men) – Free
Designed for the iPhone and iPad, Lose the Belly app offers great advice for men looking to lose weight in their stomach area. You can browse through segments like “The Truth About Abs,” “Lower Abs Workouts,” “Serious Ab Workouts” and more. Whatever you choose, you can rest assured that this will get you in shape in no time!
iMapMyRUN – Free
Available for the BlackBerry, Android, and iPhone, iMapMyRUN app uses your phone's built-in GPS to help you keep track of your fitness activities. You can record things like the duration of your workout, your distance, speed, calories burned, and even your route. When you're finished, you can save your information to the website and view your history at any time.
And there you have it, fellas. Look no further than our list of apps when you're looking to sport a killer beach bod.
