4 Workout Apps to Help you Stay Fit when Traveling

While you may have to leave your workout routine behind when you vacation on Hilton Head Island, there’s no reason to leave fitness behind, too! There are so many ways to stay active on the island from biking to running to kayaking and playing tennis.

Workout apps for travelHere are 4 apps we found to help you stay in shape on your Hilton Head vacation:

1)      Pedometer – There are many free pedometer apps out there that track the number of steps you take per day with an average goal of 10,000 steps, which is between 4 and 5 miles, depending on the length of your stride. Many people walk more on vacation, so you may be surprised at how many days you hit the 10,000 mark.

2)      Weight Watchers – If you’re watching your calorie intake, Weight Watchers offers a great app (though you do pay a monthly fee of about $18-$20) that allows you input nearly everything you eat and determine if you’re over or under your allotted points for the day. Choose to either lose weight or maintain your weight. The app works great for both men and women and helps you make healthier choices when eating out to select items with fewer points. It also helps you avoid over eating in a given day by tracking everything, including that ice cream you indulged in between meals!

3)      Fitness Finder – The Fitness Finder app helps you locate gyms near you and also provides their services and schedules. On Hilton Head Island, you’ll find many different gyms, as well as options like CrossFit and yoga, to choose from.

4)      RunKeeper – RunKeeper is a very popular app that lets you track your speed, mileage, route, time, calories burned and distance when running, walking, biking or even swimming. You can also listen to music while it runs in the background.

What are your favorite workout apps to keep you motivated and fit while traveling?
