The Road To Fitness

The Road To Fitness

With help from these handy Apps

The thought of getting fit is a real drag, but the advantages (an improvement in mental agility, reduction in stress levels, better sleep, and enhanced energy), aren’t. Get your head round regular exercise and you’ll shed extra kilos, improve your muscle tone and enhance stamina.

And the good news? You don’t need a gym to get going, as just a few exercise sessions of 20-30 minutes, three or four times a week, makes all the difference. The important thing is to eat healthily, find an activity you love and keep moving.

To get you started, here are some great Android apps to help you track your fitness activities, monitor your weight loss, and stay on top of your calorie count. Ready? Here we go:
