Quick App: iStayFit

One of the biggest issues that keeps people from maintaining an exercise routine is a lack of immediate and measurable results.  The best way to maintain motivation is, of course, to track your progress;  Seeing that you're able to lift 5 pounds more on the dead lift than you were able to last week or that you're able to run that mile a minute faster are invaluable to that end. Thankfully, the App Catalog has a number of options to help you do just that.

iStayFit ($4.99 in the App Catalog) is a feature rich workout tracking application that allows you to track your progress in any number of pre-designed or user built workout routines. And more than being just a tracking app, iStayFit also has a vast database of exercises ranging from the dead lift to the cable neck flexion and everything between, with detailed animations showing you exactly how to perform each one. 

The UI could use some work (do we really need number pickers with 200 options?) and is often less than intuitive, but the overall experience a whole lot less cumbersome than bringing a pad of paper and a pen along throughout the course of your workout to track your results, since you probably have your phone on you for listening to music anyway. $4.99 may be a tad pricey, but the animations just might be worth the price.
