    Best iPhone and iPod Touch Fitness Applications

    If you are the one who is looking for some of the best iPhone or iPod touch applications which can help in your fitness program and can control your body then you have reached the right place. Just check out the thread and you will be able to find some applications that fits to your needs.

    1. iFitness

    iFitness is a comprehensive exercise database that provides clear pictures, videos and instructions – all within the palm of your hand.

    Regular exercise is essential for becoming and staying fit. Experts recommend changing your workout routine regularly to keep your body from growing accustomed to the same old routine and to keep things interesting and enjoyable.

    Personal trainers can be costly though, and attempting a new exercise without assistance can lead to strain or an ineffective workout. iFitness is the solution to both problems.

    iFitness provides images of people performing over 300 exercises, sorted by body region or the exact muscle it targets. Simply choose a target, tap on an exercise, and you are presented with a picture of the exercise. Double tap to flip the image and reveal clearly worded instructions on the back - directing you step-by-step. For more difficult exercises, a single tap on the video icon brings up video instructions!

    You can even add exercises to your custom workout list, and make several workouts for different days of the week. Are we missing an exercise? You can add your own custom exercise to ensure your complete workout is there.

    Want to track your progress? Tap the log icon and easily record your progress. Your data is saved and presented to you in an easy to understand form, and can be sent to your email with just one finger tap. Why waste money on all of those separate "logging apps" that litter iTunes?

    Want routines you can perform? Our registered fitness experts have included 20 routines that target everything from weight loss to strength building. For those who travel, there is even an equipment-free routine for you.

    Beautifully designed, iFitness looks and functions as a real iphone/ipod application should. Don't be fooled by our competitors - there is a reason we are #1. Exercises range from using free weights, cables, machines, exercise balls to even no equipment!

    4. Sleep Cycle alarm clock

    An alarm clock that analyzes your sleep patterns and wakes you in the lightest sleep phase - a natural way to wake up where you feel rested and relaxed.

    Sleep Cycle monitors your movement during sleep using the extremely sensitive accelerometer in your iPhone. Sleep Cycle then finds the optimal time to wake you up during a 30 minute window that ends at your set alarm time.

    Sleep Cycle also saves your sleep data and displays a detailed sleep graph and sleep statistics for every night you use it. Sleep Cycle was developed using proven sleep science and five months of exhaustive testing.

    As you sleep you go through different phases that range from deep sleep to light sleep. The phase you are in when your alarm clock goes off is a critical factor regarding how tired you will feel when you wake up.

    Since you move differently in bed during the different phases, Sleep Cycle uses the accelerometer in your iPhone to monitor your movement to determine which sleep phase you are in. Sleep Cycle then wakes you in your lightest sleep phase.

    Remember! Do NOT lock your phone when going to bed. Sleep Cycle automatically shuts down your screen and puts the phone into a power saving mode. If you lock your phone Sleep Cycle will not sense your movement and will then only be able to wake you at the end of the alarm time.
