The year is almost coming to an end and some of you may already be thinking about your new year’s resolution. For the majority of people this usually involves losing weight or getting in shape for the year ahead. Although this is easier said than done, there is an app available that can ensure that your fitness goals are met without any hassle.
Workout Hero is an iOS app that keeps track of your workouts and monitors your fitness. This app is one of the best ways to develop a good workout routine regardless of what your fitness goals are. You can use this app to keep track of your body building workouts, cardio training and sports fitness drills.
The app syncs to CrossFit and gives you daily workouts (WOD) to complete each day. There are plenty of workouts to choose from all of which are created by other users. After you decide on the workout you want to do, the app adds it to your calendar so you can have a history of all your workouts and keep track of your progress. You can also create your own WOD and share it with other users on CrossFit or social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and LinkedIn.
If you don’t want to go through all the WODs one by one, there’s an option that lets you pick a random WOD based on different workout categories. You can choose random weightlifting, endurance, bodyweight and kettle bell workouts. Each workout has comprehensive how-to videos included that show you how to properly perform each workout without straining your muscles.
Another powerful feature of this app is the ability to incorporate your diet into the workouts. You are given access to recipes to the paleo diet – an organic diet rich in protein that promotes muscle recovery after intense workouts. The built in alarm settings allow you to set reminders of when you should eat your next meal. This ensures that you eat in regular intervals and don’t skip out on meals after your workouts.
There are other features such as free books to that tell you everything about CrossFit, a CrossFit journal, access to CrossFit Radio, a directory of places to buy equipment and even a GPS locator that allows you to find the nearest CrossFit gyms in your area. Overall, this is a great app for your fitness and will help you maximize your workouts. The app costs $2.99 from iTunes and works with both iPhone and iPad.
