Want to start an exercise routine, but don’t know where to start? Don’t have any money to pay for a personal trainer? Don’t even have access to the gym? Just want to track your progress? This fitness app is the answer to all of those questions. Jefit offers pre-made exercise routines for a wide variety of fitness goals, from losing weight and building muscle to training for specific sports.

And if you need more encouragement, you can visit the Jefit community forums to seek advice. With all of these options, it’s definitely the #1 workout app out in the market.

New Year’s Resolution: Quit Smoking

If health reasons are not enough for you to quit smoking, then maybe the amount of money you can save for other things will convince you to stop. And this app will definitely help you reach that goal. Simply set a reward to gun for and the rate which you smoke every day. The app will compute how many sticks for how many days you need to give up to buy your reward. And to ensure continued progress to finally quitting, you can also set multiple rewards.
