5 Free Fitness Apps to get you moving in 2017 that will help you realise a healthier you. Are you a walker, a runner,  a gym bunny or a complete novice? There's something for everyone.

1. Map My Walk – Good for Daily Walking

This app tracks your walking progress and links to Facebook, which lets your friends spur you on. Get support on your walking journeys with lots of likes and comments to keep motivated.

2. 30 Day Ab Challenge – Great for Toning

Choose your fitness level and work your way through the month, ticking the days off as you go along to help build your confidence and tone up. There are four different exercises with reps for each one that increased each day. I tried sit ups, crunches, leg raises, and planks – so it felt like a good workout – especially when the reps increased over time.”

Get it now on iOS and Android.

3. GymPact – Feel the Burn

Sign up and this app will take a small cash sacrifice from you if you miss a workout. And if you complete your workout you’ll receive a cash reward instead, funded by people who missed theirs.

The app keeps you honest by tracking your movements and activity level by syncing with the RunKeeper or MapMyFitness apps. Get it now on iOS and Android.

4. RunKeeper – Ideal for Regular Runners

Go for a run and this app will monitor you in real time, updating you as you move, on your distance, pace, calorie count, and speed. You can also check your progress using the history feature, which shows you just how far you’ve come since the beginning. Available on iOS and Android.

5. 7 Minute Workout – For the Short on Time

Using your own body weight, a chair or wall, this app needs no fitness equipment and takes just seven minutes a day.

You can compete against yourself by making sure you don’t miss any days – if you miss three days in a month, your progress resets itself to zero and you have to start all over again. Available on iOS and Android.
