When it comes to achieving your fitness objectives, a mobile phone used to be a problem to lift because of its size and weight. Contrarily, modern smartphones may serve as a personal trainer, nutrition coach, tracker, GPS, and much more all in a body so slim you can wear it as an armband. One drawback of this is that there are now so many health and fitness applications that it can be challenging to sort through the good ones from the bad. Here are Coach’s favorites to help with that.

It’s really easy for beginners to use, but it also provides a ton of depth and a wide range of data for those who are content to spend hours analyzing their activity. The enormous user base of Strava instantly offers a wealth of virtual buddies and competitors. You can enter the standard cycling and running challenges or try to win the (virtual) King of the Mountain jersey for your neighborhood hill.
