Summarizing Fitness Apps

All the hidden pros and cons revealed
 
Question: Isn’t the role of fitness apps overestimated? In other words, can they be of real use in weight loss struggle or it’s just another way to confuse their users?
 
Answer: They can be both, actually.
 
The recent publication of the new research in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine considers the fitness app argument rather doubting. After having examined the matter closely, the researchers from the University of Massachusetts concluded that most fitness apps are good for planning and calculating nutrition. However, their “sticky” approach is too narrowed down which means it doesn’t really help people change their behavior. On the other hand, the benefits of fitness apps are considered to be working in the research from the University of California-Berkeley. The scientists found out that these apps motivate women particularly to work out more.
 
Whereas the science is pressed for a clear answer, we needed the fitness professionals’ explanation. Surprisingly, these last ones came to an agreement: the right app will work if used in the right way.

Heidi Jones, a head coach at the gym Brick New York, says: “I love apps and technology that motivate a person to become healthier and fitter.” Gorilla Workout app is her absolute fave. This app lets you choose a level of fitness proficiency which increases gradually with more workouts accomplished. “It grows with you as you become fitter; it literally becomes your personal trainer each day with new workouts,” she adds.
 
Mike Clancy, CDN, a personal trainer at David Barton’s Gym in New York City, also considers fitness apps to be working. “While fitness apps rely on user accountability, the apps can be effective when used in conjunction with other behavioral modification strategies,” he claims. Clancy recommends an app that permits users to put down their nutrition and exercise, like MyFitnessPal, and for exercise and video demonstrations, he recommends Gym Goal 2. “Using these two particular apps has helped my clients gauge progress and measure success in their quests for improved health and body composition,” he explains.
 
To be brought out: as one of the tools, fitness apps can be of real use in your pursuit of a slimmer body.
