If you’re anything like us here at Sporteluxe you love trying health and fitness apps. Here are two of our latest discoveries, MapMyFitness and Under Armour Record, both from the training geniuses at Under Armour.
Trust us when we say this is one seriously clever app! First, MapMyFitness will use the GPS in your phone to map your running routes and track things like pace, calories, distance and elevation. The app also allows you to log and record all your other workouts, from yoga to cross training and everything in between.
We also love the handy 24/7 Activity Graph, which gives you a great overview of your health and fitness in a glance. Think how much sleep your getting and how many steps you’re taking. The Gear Tracker function is also awesome. When you buy a pair of running shoes you just enter your purchase into the app. As an aside note right now we’re seriously coveting the new Under Armour Speedform Gemini. The app then starts tracking how far you’ve run in your wheels and reminds you when it’s time to buy a new pair. So it lessens your chance of suffering common injuries associated with wearing worn out runners. How cool is that?!
Described as “the world’s first social network for athletes and fitness enthusiasts” Under Armour Record synchs with all your other apps and health trackers and creates a dashboard of your data. You can then share your stats, along with videos and photos, with friends and get together with likeminded individuals to create fitness challenges. The idea being you can inspire and motivate each other to achieve your goals and become the best versions of yourselves. As if all that wasn’t enough UA Record also gives you access to training and nutrition advice from experts!
