Tracking your workouts is undeniably one of the most important aspects of achieving your fitness goals - unless you have an awesome fitness tracking app. Whether you're looking to lose weight or get massive - you need to know where you've come from, to know where you're going. There are many ways to track your workouts... Most of which are either boring, cumbersome or both. But what if tracking your workouts could be both FUN and EASY? Plus give you all the information you need to help you achieve your workout goals?
Well look no further than the 'LEVEL UP' based fitness app 'FITOCRACY':
LEVEL UP, EARN POINTS, EARN ACHIEVEMENTS
Fitocracy is based on the concept of earning experience points for every exercise, so that you can level up and reach now heights. This in itself is a mighty cool feature and will help you push past your current plateaus or give you the nudge to get out of bed in the morning. The App also includes videos and explanations of hundreds of exercises - making it a top resource for your workout routine.
QUESTS & ACHIEVEMENT
The app also comes with a series of built-in 'Quests' and 'Achievements' like BEAST MODE BENCH (performing barbell bench press for 1.9x your bodyweight) to keep you motivated. Activities earn you points. Points lead to level ups. Earn badges for significant achievements. But the real BUZZ comes from the community aspect of the Fitocracy app.
GET MOTIVATED BY THE FITNESS COMMUNITY
One of our favourite aspects of Fitocracy is the ability to link up with your friends (or other Fitocrats), follow their progress and compete on quests, levels and other workout achievements. The progress is broken up into 7, 30 and 90 day increments so you can wage short term battles or long-term wars with your friends for points.
As the site says "Fitocracy connects you to the combined knowledge of over half a million of the world’s best fitness coaches, nutrition experts, and other folks from a wide variety of fitness backgrounds". Fitocracy gives you access to online coaches for every goal you can think of. There is a small monthly fee for each, but the rewards are there, at the tips of your fingers.
CONCLUSION: FITOCRACY ROCKS AS A FITNESS TRACKING APP
Overall, we rate Fitocracy with a 5/5 for its excellent user interface, fun points and level-up system and for the un-paralled access to coaches from around the world.
