If you love Cycling at the Gym – Look up Spin – my fav apps are the Cycle Companion Lite and Ride Lean

If you love Running there are lots of applications dedicated to running and walking.

If you want to workout  1 major muscle group  for whatever reason: Look up Ab Trainer  or Leg

  1. Some of these “free” apps are fairly bare-boned and you have to pay for a more complete app. Having said that, I have used both the free and pay version of Lose It! and don’t find a huge difference between the two. There are more things you can track, but you probably don’t really need to.
