Trainer’s Tip #12: Use a fitness app to help you hold yourself accountable.
Have you kept your New Year’s Resolution to finally get fit and healthy, or are you losing motivation? If you’re slipping back into old habits, you’re not alone, but it’s not too late to turn it around! Maybe you just haven’t found strategies that have work for you in adapting, then keeping, healthier habits.
I often recommend apps like myfitnesspal to clients. Apps like this make it easier for people to keep their goals by a) allowing them to detect what foods/habits are sabotaging their weight-loss efforts, and finding healthier foods that are satisfying to them b) allowing them to track their progress and accomplishments, which helps keep them motivated and holds them accountable c) allowing them to be part of a supportive online community of people, just like them.
