There’s an app for that
New workout mobile software allow users to track sweat, calories and miles, making it easier to reach workout goals
Other favorite apps are ones that rely on GPS to measure your speed and distance when you're running, walking or cycling. RunKeeper, Endomondo and Adidas miCoach each provide this sort of tracking.
If you have a specific goal, there are apps for that, too. Hundred PushUps, Two Hundred Squats and Twenty Chinups allow you to set goals and track your success towards meeting those goals. Apps like, NikeWomen Training Club, have a series of workouts designed to help you "get lean," "get toned," "get strong" or "get focused" on specific body parts.
