1 S Health
This application comes preinstalled on the Samsung Galaxy S4 and S5. It is helpful especially if you want to lose weight or to maintain your actual condition.
You have the possibility to add certain types of food to your diary, count how many steps you take in a running or walking session or you can see how many calories you burn during an everyday activity like football or volley. In addition to that, you can keep track of your blood glucose & blood pressure.
What is special about S Health is that you can monitor your hearth rate by attaching an appropriate medical device to your phone.

2 Virtuagym Fitness Home Gym
Virtua Gym focuses more on the muscle development. It is suitable for bodybuilders or for those who want to gain weight fast.
You can track your weight, heart rate when exercising or resting, body fat percentage and a lot more. The most interesting thing is that you can choose from a huge variety of exercises and most of them come with an animation which allows you to see exactly what you have to do. Built-in workouts are also featured, starting with novice level trainings and finishing with expert sessions.

3 Calorie Counter - MyFitnessPal
We could say that MyFitnessPal is like a combination between S Health and Virtua Gym, but with less features. It allows you to set your goals, including losing weight, gaining weight or maintaining your current condition.
A cool feature is that you can add products to your diary by scanning the bar code. You can search in the database for particular exercises, such as pushups, but there won’t be an animation showing you how to do it.An extra feature is that you can have friends inside the application and you even have a small ‘news feed’ where you can see what are your friends doing.
