My Top Fitness and Business Apps

P90X App
My Top Fitness and Business Apps

I constantly get asked which apps and tools I use for my Beachbody Coaching Business, workouts, and OCR (obstacle course racing) projects, so I decided to write this post. I'll be honest, I don't think that I use anything different from what most people use. I am also not the type of person who goes out of their way to look for the "next best app". I find one that I like, test it out, and if I like, I use it, simple as that. And I really do not use a lot of apps, because who has time for that? I use apps to keep my business and my life simple, not complicated. So here goes!

To keep things simple, I have categorized what I use, hmmmmm.....that must be the "Emerald" personality side of me =).


Runkeeper - I've been using this app for over 2 years now. Mostly used for running, the app also tracks other activities as mountain biking, walking, cycling, hiking, downhill skiing, cross country skiing, snowboarding, skating, rowing.....ok you get the picture!

P90X - I love working out at the gym, outdoors, and at home. The P90X app allows me to take my P90X workouts anywhere and track it. It tracks P90X, P90X Plus, P90X2, and P90X3. You will never run out of workouts with this app. Available for iPhone and Android.

Timer+ - I use this mostly when I am leading outdoor interval training workouts, as well as my own workouts. I also sometimes use "GymTimer". Both are free!

iCross WoD - When I want to change things up, I will sometimes use this app to incorporate Crossfit workouts into the mix. I also use the Spartan WODs which comes to me via email.

Body Beast Mobile App - Must purchase the Body Beast Program in order to use this app. Body Beast Purchase Options, click here! Once purchased, you can use your Team Beachbody Login to access the mobile app here.

My Yoga Online - Now I know that there are a lot of FREE yoga apps out there, but I think My Yoga Online offers the most unlimited online yoga workouts. They are constantly adding new workouts from the top yogis in the industry. When I travel, I use this a lot! For only $9.95 per month, you get access to thousands of yoga workouts!

Zoom - This is the app that I use the most for my business. I use this to stay in touch with my coach team and fitness challengers, as well as host team video calls. It is facebook friendly, and anyone with a Mac, PC, iPhone, iPad, Phone, or Android device can use it. It's just plain awesome!

Google Calendar - Clearly not an app (at least I don't think it is), but this is what I use to schedule my races, meetings, and reminders. I like the fact that it is very customizable and is very user-friendly. 


PicMonkey.com - Ok, this is not an app, but this is the online photo editing software that I use to make collages, banners, promotional materials etc. It's free, but if you want more access to the premium features, it's only $4.99 per month.


InstaFrame and InstaCollageFrame - For collages from my iPhone and iPad.

Snapseed - For photo editing, screen shot editing etc.

PhotoToaster - Some photos come out grainy, so I use this app to smooth things out.

TimerCamera - I use this mostly to take group workout photos (Fit Club, Trail Runs, Beachbody Events etc) from my iPad. 


iMovie and Final Cut Pro for Mac - Again, these are not apps, but everyone always ask me what I use to edit my videos, so that's what I use =). There is an iMovie app, but I am terrible at editing videos from mobile devices, I need to by on a computer. My daughter edits most of her videos from her phone, I am not at that level yet =).


Globe Convert - I travel a lot, and so I use this to help me do currency conversions in other countries.

Kayak - The app that I book most of my travel for flights, car rentals and some hotels. I use the HostelWorld app to book backpacker accommodations.

HotelsCombined - I use this mostly for hotel bookings, it's like Kayak, but only for hotels.

Lonely Planet - I am a huge Lonely Planet fan, and although I would much rather use an actual travel guide book, sometimes it's more convenient to use the app, plus it doesn't take up a lot of room in my backpack!

And that's about it! When I am all done with my meetings, team calls, editing, workouts, and traveling.....I then use this app --------> NETFLIX =).
