If you're looking for a fun way to shed a few extra pounds, personal trainer and yoga and Pilates instructor Sara Faravelli of MyBeautik says that Fitocracy is a great way to hold yourself accountable.

"Fitocracy allows users to compete with one another by either challenging friends or strangers on the app. You can either pledge your weight, lose or gain weight, and track your progress within the app," Faravelli explains.

If you need more incentive to work out than just the promise of added muscle tone or cardiovascular wellbeing, DietBet might just be the app for you.

"DietBet rewards users who are trying to lose weight by supporting them financially," explains Faravelli, who recommends the app for over-60 clients trying to shed pounds. "After you set your bet, you have four weeks to work out and eat well until the game begins."


Silver Sneakers

One of the few fitness apps designed specifically for seniors, SilverSneakers is a great way to start your fitness journey—and it's even covered by some Medicare plans.

"SilverSneakers is the best app as it's free and more than 10,000 gyms post their workout videos," says personal trainer Isaac Robertson, co-founder of Total Shape.

However, Robertson cautions that anyone using the app should still listen to their body and not overexert themselves. "Make sure you get help if you find some of the exercises a little difficult—or you can skip to the next one," Robertson says.
