If you’re tempted to ditch your workout or diet because you’re just too busy, then fitness apps might just be your saving grace. The following six applications for your iPhone, Android or any smartphone device make it simple, and dare I say it, even fun, to track eats, prepare healthy foods, try a new workout and share your progress with you social network. So busy gals on the go can stop and pump some iron or have a sweat-session mid-day, in the comfort of their living rooms, without feeling like their neglecting work or other responsibilities. It’s easy to let your iPhone or Android help keep you on track with your fitness goals thanks to the following top fitness apps for the ladies!

1. Look Better Naked ($1.99). If you dream of strutting around naked at home, glancing adoringly in mirrors, then the Look Better Naked app is for you! Based on the popular television series and the book Look Better Naked by editor-in-chief Michele Promaulayko, this app will help you live healthier and feel more confident—with clothes and without. Reshape and learn to appreciate the curves you cover up under all of those lose clothes with the help of a customizable diet, workout plan, plus a calendar that syncs with your iPhone calendar and sends you reminders that will get your butt to the gym and will help you follow a healthy diet plan.

  1. Thanks for the post, I’ll check out the apps. Another one I like that helps me stay accountable with my diet is called calorie-counter. Its easy to use and syncs with all devices which is really nice.

  2. MyFitnessPal is a GREAT app! We have all of our clients use it and it works very effectively.

    I got the freebie Nike one and the freebie Daily Yoga one, at least I hope it’s the one you listed. There was no specific hips & buns Daily Yoga. Thank you for your always interesting and au courant content!

  4. Andrea says:

    I use MyFitnessPal and MapMyWalk daily!

    GymPact has truly changed my life. It pays me to go to the gym and charges my bank account if I don’t! The best motivation ever, and spending more time at my gym has allowed me to discover all the things it has to offer. I cannot recommend it enough!

  6. MapMyRun is great…It helps you track your runs around the city and you can record them to refer back to them later. I was looking for the Nike Women Training Club app, but I can’t find it on my Android =( Any help with this?

  7. I love MapMyRun as well! You can chart your progress, share your routes with friends, and calculate all the miles you ran in the past week, month, year, and so on! So useful.

    You Miss one App “ProFitness Trainer” from iAppNdroid.com. It is now the most recommended app for gyms. Through this app, personal trainer or coaches can prepare training systems and send it to their trainees via email. Please check it out.
