Four Must-Have Fitness Apps

The best piece of gym equipment is in your pocket.

FOR RUNNERS
Nike+ Running (iOS and Android, Free)

Beyond keeping track of your progress, route, and calories burned, Nike+ syncs with Nike’s coterie of Blade Runner–esque accessories for an overview of your general fitness.

FOR CYCLISTS
Cyclemeter GPS (iOS, $4.99)
Integrated with Google maps, Cyclemeter allows you to easily trade biking routes with fellow Schwinn jockeys via Facebook and Twitter.

FOR HIKERS
BackCountry Navigator PRO GPS (Android, $9.99)

Never get lost in the woods again. BackCountry contains the mother lode of off-road hiking trail maps spanning across the globe, and it doesn’t require cell service.

FOR THOSE NEEDING MOTIVATION
Gympact (iOS or Android, Free)

Get your ass to the gym by putting your cash on the line: If you make your gym commitment you make money; skip your workout and lose it.
