It is like Facebook for fitness. Cody offers users inside connections to a fitness community where they can share and complete workouts by following new and old friends. This app allows people to track their own progress through a timeline and other users can like and comment on your daily workout activity.

Hot5 Fitness app offers high quality step-by-step workouts led by the top trainers in the industry. From abs and core to yoga and flexibility and everything in between, Hot5 contains pages and pages of 5-minute video workouts of every variety and difficulty level.

For those who value money as incentive, this one’s for you. Formerly known as GymPact, this app encourages users to put their money where their mouth is. Users pledge a set number of days they plan to workout that week along with an amount of money they must put up. Users must pay for each day they miss, but they get paid every time they complete a workout. Pact now features the option to connect with other tracking apps. A nutritional option is now available, too. Commit to eating healthy or pay the consequences.
Mindshift is a health coach app designed to offer people struggling with anxiety a way out. Both adults and teens alike can learn from their strategies and advice about coping with anxiety in both social and professional situations. It aims to change the way the user thinks about anxiety. Instead of trying to run from the situation, you can learn to face it.
This one basically does all the work for you. It does create a specific weight loss plan custom for you and your busy life, though. Think of it as having a personal trainer and nutritionist at your disposal at all times. Just plug in your weight loss and general health goals, et voila! Not only does it track your calories, it gives you a barcode scanner to get more specific with what you are consuming, focusing more on nutritional value in addition to just calorie intake. It connects to other apps and devices as well to make it extra handy.
