Denise Austin promotes herself as a fitness expert, but the Denise Austin iPhone app is better characterized as an all-around healthy lifestyle guide.

It includes daily health tips such as eliminating sugary temptations by removing all junk food from one’s cabinets, and pairing up with a buddy to keep motivation to exercise high.

For those who are hoping to target trouble areas with well-designed physical exercise, the app offers dozens of routines for upper body, midsection, legs, etc. Or for those who want a more comprehensive approach, there are also complete body workouts, many that can be done at home or around the neighborhood.

But, of course, no amount of exercise will offset a fat- and sugar-laden diet. So the Denise Austin app also includes recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. The great things about the recipes are that they come with not only a detailed ingredient list and cooking instructions, but also outlines for specific nutritional content. So, if your doctor tells you to cut back on sodium, or boost your folic acid, you’ll know exactly what to eat and what not to eat.

The app also has a category labeled Guides, composed of five subcategories: Getting Motivated, Cardio and Fitness, Dining Out, Smart Portion Sizes and De-stressing. These contain additional health and wellness tips to help you reach your goal.
