So you’re looking to get fit and smoking hot in 2020, but you want a little help getting there. In addition to buying that gorgeous men’s bike you’ve had your eye on, you may be looking for a little more. Maybe you need something to help motivate and guide you. Fortunately, there are many apps out there that can help you achieve your goals before summer rolls around. Unfortunately . . . there are also plenty of apps that aren’t very good at propelling you to a new, fitter you. To help you avoid wasting your time and get you on the fast track to success, here are some of the best fitness apps for 2020.
Want to show off your cycling prowess to your community? Strava is a great way to do so. Even if you’re humble and don’t necessarily want to brag, Strava will still help you track your own progress over time. The premium version of the app also allows you to analyze your post-ride data as well. You can even map your future rides and allow fellow cyclists to see where you are in real time.
To make things more fun, Strava allows you to compete on your city bicycle with other cyclists to see who can get the fastest time on segments. Even if you don’t want to compete with others, the app allows you to compete with yourself by notifying you when you’ve exceeded previous cycling times and achieved a personal record.
Feel a little selfish for focusing so much on yourself and your fitness? What if you could change the world while you get a rock-hard bod? Enter the awesome app Charity Miles. Once you’re signed up, this app will donate money to the charity of your choice for every single mile you run. So next time you get tired, think about the people who benefit from your efforts and you’ll find the extra push you need to succeed.
Map My Fitness
Looking for ways to see just how far you’ve come in your workouts? Map My Fitness is a great activity tracking app that logs your activities and spits out great stats. Using the app, you’ll be able to see how your fitness improves over time. You can use the app when you run or when you pedal your women’s bike around town.
Cycling on your men’s bike may seem impossible in inclement weather, but it’s not. With the revolutionary app Zwift, you can enter a cycling race on the other side of the globe. You just need a good internet connect, a turbo trainer and the Zwift app to get started. You’ll be immersed in virtual cycling races with real people who are also connected to the Zwift app. Create groups with your friends or compete with people who don’t even speak the same language as you. The whole experience can be fun, motivating and sweat-inducing.
With the help of one or more of these apps, you can make 2020 the best year yet as far as your fitness goes. Try each of them out today to see which you prefer.
