Gym Pact


This is one of the best apps on the market, especially for those who lack the motivation to work out and eat healthy. It basically makes people put their money where their mouth is. We all know people who always make a resolution to start going to the gym or to start eating healthy regularly, with Gym Pact, they enter a pact with like minded individuals, and set weekly goals that state how many times they will exercise during the week, or how much healthy food they will consume.

They then set a price that they will pay other members if they fail to meet their goals. Failure to meet goals results in losing money, and the achievement of their goals means they get paid by other members who failed to reach theirs.



This app helps people who are trying to eat healthy read food labels and give them the information they need instead of having to go through all the details yourself. All you have to do is scan the label, and the app will list all the positives and negatives, it will also grade the items in terms of healthiness, and recommend healthier alternatives if there are any available.



This is another cool app for people who are trying to eat healthy, it provides healthy recipes from some of the top chefs in the world, and you can also search for recipes by ingredients. You can save the recipes you like, and even share them with your friends and family through social media networks like Facebook.



This app allows users to keep track of their heart rate at anytime during their day, you can use it before you workout, during your workout, and after, without having to spend money on a heart rate monitor you have to strap to your chest. All you have to do to find out your heart rate is to look into the front camera of your iPhone. You can track your heart rate over a week or months to see if there are any irregularities, and if you are interested, the app can give you an estimate of your life expectancy.
