whether you are beginning a new fitness routines because it’s January or you’re a year-round fitness fiend these apps will help you get your fit on. Most of these were recommended to me from twitter. Have any to add?

Waterlogged – Drink More Water, Daily Water Intake Tracker and Hydration Reminders

I researched several water tracker apps and this seems to be the easiest for keeping track of how much water you drink per day. Set your daily intake goal, save your usual containers you drink from to easily input new intake and voila you’re on your way to your optimum water intake.
