Best fitness apps to get in shape for summer

If feeling the force of a barking personal trainer, or forking out for a gym membership doesn't take your fancy, seek healthier solitude from your smartphone, as we pick the best apps from across the platforms to get you fit.

Sports Tracker

It’s a fully-featured sports computer which uses the GPS in your Nokia to keep track of how far you’ve run, cycled, walked or skied and works out the details you need to know – such as calories burned or your average speed.

After you’ve completed your exercise, the app also gives you a full report on your workout including a map showing you the distance covered.

Joggah

It’s a complete GPS tracking tool that not only logs each run you make storing distance, speed, changes in altitude with the date but also produces a Google Earth file.

The log book can also track specific shoe wear, so you know how far each pair of trainers has gone. The screen can be locked to avoid accidental calls and to extend the battery. And of course you can still take calls and listen to music.

Cardio Trainer

There are four main options to choose from, including recording your workout, a weight loss trainer and an option to race against yourself.

If you’re outside and have GPS enabled, the app will chart exactly where you run. The phone recounts how many steps you have taken, the distance you’ve travelled and your speed. If jogging isn’t your thing, then there are plenty of sports to choose from – including kayaking!

BiM Active

BiM (Bones in Motion) Active is a great free option and one that’s already gaining popularity throughout the App World.

It will track your route and tell you some basic information, such as speed, time and distance covered. It also beeps when you pass given markers, be it half mile, mile or others. A low-res application with only a basic amount of information, but one that does nearly everything the higher-spec, expensive one offers, all for free!

Sleep Cycle alarm clock

Sleeping badly hurts. If you download Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock to your iPhone and train yourself to stick to its waking times, you will soon get out of the habit of sleeping poorly!

Sleep Cycle alarm clock wakes you up when your body is naturally in its lightest sleep phase. Shove your iPhone under the mattress on your bed and the accelerometer will track your movements and form a detailed graph of your whole night’s sleep, then judge the optimal time within a window of 30 minutes the best time to wake you up.
