MyFitnessPal is a free calorie counter app. Being able to keep track of your calorie intake makes staying on track of your goals a little easier. Haven’t used it before? Here’s a tutorial on how to use my fitness pal.
MapMyFitness app: MapMyFitness app is also free! It allows you to map out a route that works best for you. You can see where you have been, track your distances and even share your progress with your friends. Whenever I take a walk, I turn it out as I like to know the distance I covered.

Spotify: Music is a great motivator when it comes to fitness. There is a free membership, but if you want to upgrade they usually have deals of .99 for 3 months. They offer millions of different songs to choose from to get you going on your next fitness adventure!

Wearable fitness trackers are on the higher end of budget friendly items. However, if you’re not worried about the bells and whistles you can find them for under $70. They can count your steps, count calories, store your history, as well as monitor your sleeping patterns. On a few fitness trackers, you can compete with your friends! Sometimes it’s the extra kick in the rear to get us motivated!
