If you don’t belong to a group of people who exercise on a daily basis, then you know that getting back into shape can be pretty difficult. We tell ourselves each day that we’re going to start running or exercising for the sake of our health, but something always gets in the way.
Thankfully, the 21st century brings technology that can help you become more active and aware of what your body needs. Apple’s App Store offers a number of useful apps you can take along with you when you go exercising that will track your progress and give you a boost of support when you need it the most.
