As a modern woman, you have personal, and often even professional commitments that often take a toll on your health. The lamest excuse – not enough time. Unsurprisingly, the answer to that is technology. More specifically, your smartphone. In recent times, several fitness apps have made their foray to ease tracking and addressing health problems. These apps are easy to use, customisable, and also support medical treatment, possible workouts, and even diet regimes.

Here’s our pick of free apps that you can install on your smartphone – whether Android or iOS – and try out:

1. Healthifyme

Healthifyme delivers what it promises. It handholds you through your weight-loss journey like a friend. It tracks various health parameters, like food, exercise, and of course, weight. HealthifyMe has over 1,000 activities to add to workout routines (including yoga) and integrates seamlessly with fitness trackers like Fitbit, Mi Band, and Google Fit. Configured to the Indian diet and food habits, it has the largest online calorie counter in India and offers a database of more than 20000 food items across 13 regions in India. Top benefits include goal setting and tracking, meal logging, diet tracking with nutrient mapping, and access to professional nutritionists and dieticians to enjoy dedicated one-on-one guidance and coaching.

2. Couch to 5K (C25K®)

If you’re suffering weight issues alongside fatigue, this is the app to use.The award-winning app C25K® helps by benchmarking about eight weeks of effort to enable you to run five kilometres. Originally designed for beginners who want to start running, the app only needs 30 minutes a day, 3 days a week, for 8 weeks in total. That’s gold for someone hard-pressed for time! Our vote goes to its matchless user interface, in-app music playlist (subscription), and modest, realistic workout schedule.
