"I think apps are great if you can't afford a trainer, or if you like working out at home, or if your traveling," shares Lacey. Here are her top three favorite apps to use for getting fit with just your phone! 

My Fitness Pal

  • This app allows you to put in your height and weight and it will give you the exact amount of calories you need to intake in order to reach your goal
  • It tells you how long it will take to reach your goal if you stay on track, which gives incentive. 
  • It has tons of recipes or you can scan the bar codes on your food or even input a recipe online using a URL to get an accurate read on the calories you are intaking. 

Fitstar Personal Trainer 

  • It has quick customized workouts divided into 4 different segments: Get Strong, Get Lean, Daily Dose & Freestyle 
  • Get Strong helps you build your muscles and Get Lean is cardio based workouts.
