- I really like this new little abs workout app - ABSessions. It's different from all others in that there is a continuous voiceover by a trainer for every exercise. It's like having a coach standing right next to you. Plus, you can play it to your own iTunes music. Pretty cool. Only $1.99. The word about it is slowly spreading, so check it out! absessionsapp.com

- I have a personal trainer and use Dietio Mobile with him, it's great! My personal trainer purchases Dietio Mobile on a subscription bases and manages all of his clients through this application. He can set detailed diet plans, exercise plans motivate and chat with me as well as integrate our social feeds through it! It only cost me 0.99 to download as well which was great and it is like having my PT in my pocket at all times with my personalised plans.
I think Dietio Mobile is currently at their BETA stage so as a web page but will be going onto the App Store for the end of next month which I for one am really looking forward to.
I think if you are a personal trainer you can register here: www.dietio.com and then can use the app for free for 3 months I think my trainer said to me.
If I didn't have a personal trainer I think I would probably just use myfitnesspal as that has served me really well.
Hope this suggestion helps :)

- This is my favorite go to app since buying my last 4 fitness apps. This app has it all. Natural diets and some of the best workouts i have ever done (I've worked with 6 trainers in last 13 years and have done well over a 100 aerobic classes). This developer really created an app that works. I love the cardio boxing workouts that have shown me how to really hit my bag at home the right way. Plus, since using the athletic girl workouts ive lost 9 lbs in 2 weeks. 2 to go :). If your a girl you must try this app. Oh ya, its definitely best on my Ipad for all the video instruction. P.S. Try my favorite workout series: Boxing chic program1, Athletic girl progam 2 and body burn arm workout 3. I promise you'll be dripping in sweat.
The best fitness app
- Kal Virtual Trainer is the best fitness app, with a workout player and a workout generator..

Workout in a Bag!
- This App is fun, easy to follow, challenging and complete with moving pictures of each exercise! The bag is different every time! I love that I can connect to my itunes playlists, and I can set the time of the bag from 20-60 minutes depending on how much time I have to workout that day! No equipment needed. "Do the Bag!"

- Thanks for all the suggestions. Personally I use the WeightMotion iPhone app to control my weight. In addition to setting up my target and entering my daily weight, I can also take pictures of myself and then do an awesome animation checking how I am progressing. It's pretty cool to see the fat becoming a 6 pack over time :o)
It's got some cool charts showing if I am getting towards or away from my weight and BMI goals.
It worths a look.

Personal Trainers iPad App
- You guys should also check out "the training notebook" iPad App on the iTunes store. I have been using it for the past 6 months and I have gotten away from pen and paper. This App has everything... PAR-Q, body fat assessment calculator, program pages like kind of like a excel and it even has a timer. I use to use google docs and tabata pro but this is better because it's made with personal trainers in mind. I use this App every day and it's made my job a lot easier.

HeiaHeia.com is casual and fun
- I'm logging my workouts on heiaheia.com, it's a free service for logging and sharing workouts. You'll find 300-400 activities to choose from, and fun virtual rewards. There are also personalized training programs. What I like best is groups (for example, my friends and I see each other's workouts within the group logs). My PT friend originally recommended HeiaHeia to me, she's using it with her clients to see what they do or if they're slacking :) It works on web & mobile and HeiaHeia have a bunch of compatible iOS/Android apps as well. http://www.heiaheia.com
