3 Best FREE Apps to Make Your Life Easier

When it comes to smart phone apps...

I guess you can call me a hoarder.

For some strange reason, I hate deleting apps just in case I might need them one day.

• I mean, who DOESN'T need a Zappos.com app?

But there are some apps that are actually useful and that I do actually use on a daily basis.

2 of the 3 apps listed here are super helpful when tracking progress.

After all, progress is my number one motivator when it comes to staying in-line with my goals.

I digress....

1. Map My Run

This app is great for locating different routes to run when you are tired of the same route over and over again.

• It's built in GPS locates you wherever you are outside so even if you take a route that's not listed, it will figure out where you ran and you have the option of saving it.

It also tells you as you run or walk how far you have gone and how long it's been.

It's like your own personal running coach.

2. My Fitness Pal

Seriously, it's like having your own personal nutritionist.

• You plug in your info,

• plug in your goals,

• and it lays out how much you should be eating daily.

Virtually every food item and food brand is somehow in this app which makes it easy to enter in what you've eaten that day and tells you where you need to slow down (i.e. too much fat, too many carbs, etc).

Hands down the most useful fitness app ever.

3. Interval Timer

Ok, so this app takes a little bit of messing around before you'll truly understand how it works but once you do, it's really easy. 

• What this app does is exactly what the title of it is: an interval timer.

For those workouts where you are doing 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off (or something of that sort, primarily for HIIT workouts), this app takes out the hassle of resetting your timer or watching the clock every time you start a new set.

Just plug in how many rounds you are going for and it does the rest by beeping every time your 30 seconds (or whatever time you have it set to) is complete.

So if you're an app hoarder, like myself, add these to your repertoire and I promise that you'll keep these apps next time you go on an app deleting spree for spring cleaning.

App away, my friends!
