here isn’t much you can do for your body that is better than getting in shape, staying in shape, and working out. It lowers all of the bad things (cholesterol, blood pressure, etc) and heightens all of the good things (muscles, stamina, etc). Mobile devices are excellent for fitness and working out. We’ve found two types of workout apps. The first type tracks your workouts so you can see your progress. The other provides workout ideas and workout regimens for you to follow. We have a healthy mixture of both types here. Here are the best workout apps for Android!

1. Google Fit – Fitness Tracking

It’s hard to know how much or what kind of activity you need to stay healthy. That’s why Google Fit worked with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Heart Association (AHA) to bring you two new activity goals that can help improve your health: Move Minutes and Heart Points.
