Unbelievably, Nexercise actually rewards users with tangible incentives. Of course the biggest reward is staying in shape, but why not get a little something else out of it too? Nexercise will track your exercise activities, such as running, weight lifting, dancing, sports, Wii Fit, laser tag and several other normal and not so normal physical activities. Users earn points for the length of workout and other positive exercise routines and there are opportunities to earn bonus points for different behaviors such as working out on a rainy day, or with a friend. The physical activity must last at least 15 minutes in order to earn points, but you can win virtual medals and free merchandise. Prizes range from $5 coupons to $250 gift cards as Nexercise has partnered with Kiip, a company that provides rewards for virtual achievements. It’s essentially a game that tracks your workouts, pace, distance, steps, and other metrics. Nexercise fits as a companion for devices like Fitbit, Fuel Band, Jawbone Up and it links to Runkeeper so you can have complete control of your fitness analytics.
All the fitness and health activities in the world are no help without a decent night’s sleep. Sleep Cycle works by tracking your movements during the night in order to perfectly time the alarm clock to wake you in the lightest sleep phase for a natural, rested and relaxed awakening. The app uses the accelerometer in your iPhone to monitor your movement to determine which sleep phase you are in. The idea is to place your iPhone near you in bed (it doesn’t drain your battery as the app automatically shuts down your screen and puts the phone into a power saving mode) to register your movements. When you are in deeper sleep, it will document the stillness. When you are restless towards morning, drifting into lighter stages of sleep, it will seize on this wakefulness to alert you to get up for the day. This data is saved and displays a detailed sleep graph and sleep statistics for every night you use it. The interface is slick with five tabs of controls and information. Under settings, you can choose an alarm (including a favorite song) and set your snooze options. Plus, you can select a 30-minute period that you wish to wake up. It works quite well and you’ll notice a difference each morning.
Workouts Pro is not really a single app, but a series of 99c apps targeted at different areas of the body such as abs, arms, butt, legs and push ups. Each of the arm, leg, abs and butt apps come with 20 exercises, steps and animations, 10 workouts, the ability to customize workouts and an in-app trainer voice. Push-ups includes the same except there aren’t as many workouts but they are pre-set with four difficulty levels. While some apps might include all of these in one, these are good if you just want to target a specific area. There are free versions so you can try them all before you buy anyway. Each one has minor differences such as the abs version including foods that fight abdominal fat and the push ups version uses voice commands to talk you through the workouts, but mostly these are just straight up “here’s your exercises, let’s go”.
Try these top fitness apps on your iPhone or iPad and achieve your fitness with some help from technology and of course, from your favorite gadgets from Apple.
