    Run Keeper (Free)

    Alright ladies, this might possibly be the best fitness app to have ever been created. Run Keeper uses your phone’s GPS to track distance traveled, time spent exercising, and calories burned while working out. Don’t worry if you don’t run (girlllll, me neither) because Run Keeper tracks distance whether you bike, roller-blade, power-walk or hiked! The best part of the app? It's basically like having a virtual trainer (minus the cost).

    Zombies, Run! ($3.99)

    Okay, so you may have noticed that we have mentioned Zombies, Run! on a couple other posts, but we can’t help it because GL LOVES ZOMBIES, RUN! Possibly the coolest, most creative fitness app ever, this app transports you into a survival game where you’re running for your life from Zombies. While running for survival, the app also tracks your distance and progress while you earn “power-ups” (ways to defeat the zombies) like ammunition and medicine. Plus, for those of you who don’t run unless something is chasing you, this app is very motivating.
