DIG­I­TALLY speak­ing

When it comes to apps, what works and what doesn’t? We asked some of our favourite fit­ness ex­perts for their top health and fit­ness apps

“My favourite app is Body­weight by Freelet­ics. It builds pro­grammes based on your sex, fit­ness lev­els and goals — but best of all they are all body­weight ex­er­cises so you do not need any equip­ment. Per­fect for trav­el­ling or when stuck at home!”

“I love a gad­get and the Tom Tom Touch will be high up on my gift list ideas. The ac­tiv­ity track­ing will track ev­ery­thing from steps, ac­tive min­utes, dis­tance walked, calo­ries burnt and sleep time. I couldn’t help at the be­gin­ning

check­ing ev­ery few hours how much I ac­tu­ally do in a day and it amazed me how my in­ner com­pet­i­tive side started to take over and see could I beat what I had done the pre­vi­ous day to in­crease my calo­rie spend.”

“The only app I use is the Fitbit. I just bought a Fitbit Blaze so I’m get­ting used to the func­tion­al­ity of the app. I pre­vi­ously had the Fit Bit HR. I mainly use the app for mon­i­tor­ing sleep and my daily steps. I find it re­ally use­ful for days that I’m in the of­fice. It makes me get up and move from my desk.”
