Whether you exercise often or you're getting a late start on your new year's resolution, you need an excellent gym app to stay motivated. Here are some of the best.

1. MyFitnessPal

Scan a barcode and choose from over 5 million foods or add your own recipes. Track your calories, fat, carbohydrates, and more. It also syncs to FitBit and a variety of other tracking hardware.

2. Strava Running and Cycling

Strava Running and Cycling is an activity log, exercise tracker, and community all in one app. You can even compare your times with the leaders on specific routes.

3. Nike Training Club

If you need an exercise app, you can't beat the Nike Training app. It features an entire library of workouts, each based on your fitness level and personal goals. How-to videos show you how to perform each exercise.

4. Carrot Fit

People who like a true challenge call Carrot Fit one of the best workout apps. This artificial intelligence not only gives you a seven-minute HIIT workout, but it ridicules, threatens, or even bribes you to get it done.

5. Fitocracy

Use Fitocracy for competition. A personal trainer allows you to track your workouts and work toward your goals while a level-up and achievement system allows you to compete against other friends who use the app.

6. Fit Radio

Millions of people listen to music while they work out but finding just the right rhythm can be difficult. Fit Radio builds playlists based on genre, workout, or your desired BPM.

7. Charity Miles

Find inspiration to exercise by running for charity. Start it up every time you start to exercise and earn 25 cents for every mile. The money goes directly to the charity you select.

8. Pokémon Go

Okay, so it's not traditional, but it certainly helps with fitness. When you spend your afternoons walking through your neighborhood catching your favorite Pokémon characters, you're also stretching your legs, improving exercise, and possibly even losing weight.
