Get fit with your Samsung GALAXY Note II

Forget expensive personal trainers, the new Samsung GALAXY Note II with its stunning 5.5-inch HD Super AMOLED display, extra battery life and 1.6GHz quad-core processor can harness the expertise of the world’s forefront fitness minds and motivate you towards another personal best! Here's our pick of the top fitness apps available now on the GALAXY Note II...

DailyBurn Tracker

Free Get it here

This free app offers a helping hand on two fronts. Firstly it helps you regulate your eating habits by dishing up achievable targets for each of the major food groups.

Secondly, it encourages you to record your daily physical excursions to offer up net calories for every day, complete with weight loss and weight gain estimates. With the large and vivid HD Super AMOLED display on the GALAXY Note II, and the accompanying S Pen, making the right choices has never been easier.

Endomondo Sports Tracker

Free Get it here

Ideal for running, cycling and walking, Endomondo is the ultimate personal fitness companion. Using the GALAXY Note II’s GPS connectivity, it’ll record your distance, route, speed, calories burned and a whole host of stats for post-exercise analysis.

Better still, it’s embedded with social features so your friends can offer live encouragement through Twitter and Facebook as you aim for that personal best. And with the gigantic 3,100mAh battery sitting within the GALAXY Note II’s sleek frame, there’s always enough life for you to take your workout that extra mile.

Instant Heart Rate

Free Get it here

Working on bringing down your resting heart rate? Then you need this app. Launch Instant Heart Rate on the GALAXY Note II and simply place your finger over the rear camera lens.

The camera sensor will measure the colour changes in the tip of your finger and send this information back to the app, allowing users to see a real time RPM graph. Results can be stored in the history section, so you can monitor your improvements over time.

Daily Ab Workout

Free Get it here

Most gym-rats will tell you that the abdominal portion of each workout is the one they dread the most, but fret not, Daily Ab Workout is here to make it (sort of) enjoyable.

The app features over 30 tummy-toning exercises targeting all of the major abdominal muscles, as part of workouts lasting five to 10 minutes. Detailed videos, enhanced by the Note II's large 16:9 display, will guide you through each exercise, with a time limit for each. If you want to target a different body part, companion apps focus on your butt, arms and legs.

Couch-to-5K

£1.26 Buy it here

While Endomondo is the perfect app for athletes looking to improve their performance, Couch-to-5K is a great way for the newly motivated to get out the door and on the way to their first 3.1 miles.

The nine-week programme requires a 30-minute commitment, three times a week, starting with brisk walks and ending with a stirring 5K performance. The app comes with an interactive personal trainer and you can also sync your own music playlists to accompany your workout.

White Noise

Free Get it here

You could refine your diet and workout regime to Olympic standard, but without a good night’s shut-eye your attempts to obtain physical and mental nirvana will be seriously undermined.

White Noise brings a range of 40 perfectly-looped, ambient sounds to help you rest easier when the lights go out. From the constant hum of an air conditioner to the calming sounds of the wind, take your pick and rest easy.

JEFIT Pro

£3.07 Buy it here

For all the would-be Schwarzeneggers out there, JEFIT Pro will keep track of all of your ab-crunching and chest-pumping (but not your gun-blasting and wisecracking), allowing you to log your progress over time.

You can edit record reps, weight lifted and even, with the aid of a tape measure, your vital stats. For serious body-builders only!

Zombies, Run!

£5.49 Buy it here

If it takes the illusion of a marauding mob of flesh-eating zombies to motivate your bid for a personal best, then this is the app for you. The interactive game/fitness companion will send you out on survival missions and the only way to avoid being eaten is to run, run, run!

You’ll hear the guttural groans of the undead through your earphones, while your human companions bark orders to collect supplies – vital in order to complete the mission. As the brain-eating fiends close in, you may find there’s a little more pep in your spring finish!

Pocket Yoga

£1.89 Buy it here

A daily yoga class can do wonders for the mind, body and spirit, but it isn’t always easy to squeeze in a visit to the local studio and it’s one of the more expensive fitness activities out there.

Thankfully, Pocket Yoga features 27 different routines with detailed voice and video instruction to guide you through each and every pose. There’s also a detailed dictionary of each pose, explaining its benefits, and you can add your own music to each routine.
