Charity Miles is a unique app that cost you nothing to download but allows you to earn money for your favorite charities. Sounds amazing right? Just download, choose which charity you want the money to go to and start logging miles. Go for a walk, run, or bike ride and take your phone with you, the app does all the work. You can even have it on in the background and still listen to music or use another app at the same time. You help others with every mile, and that's a great way to stay motivated!
If you want to make SUPER easy money for FREE use the SweatCoin app!
Another cool app to check out is Sweatcoin. If you are looking for a way to track your steps for the day, using your phone, this is a good one to check out. This app does not have all the bells and whistles that other apps offer. It does, however, pay you for your steps. The more steps you take, the more Sweatcoin you can earn, which can be exchanged for merchandise, offers, and gift cards.
Are you an adrenaline junky and want to get your heart pumping? Zombies, Run is a unique running app that puts you in the middle of a story. There are several episodes to complete and supplies to pick up along the run. You are immersed in a story plot in which zombies are chasing you. Your mission is to collect supplies for Able Township without getting bit.
My Fitness Pal is a tried and true health app that keeps track of your food intake. It can also calculate how many calories you burn through exercise to ensure you reach the right energy balance throughout the day. The best part is that it scans bar codes and saves your favorite foods so adding meals is easy.
If your biggest health concern is stress, we found an app for that too. Headspace can help you unwind in just a few minutes. You can choose from many different meditations. Some are designed to help motivate you, while others will help you find your calm!
Using an app to help you get in shape, or find better health is a great way to hold yourself accountable. They can be used on your schedule, and many of them are free. What I love about most of these apps, is the social component. You can allow your friends, family or spouse to follow you. This can be very motivating for people. When you see that your best friend just completed a run, it makes you want to lace up your sneakers and get out there too.
