This article lists the iPhone apps that help you set goals, offer a number of different exercise routines, and make exercise more interesting and fun.

Fitness routines can get a little monotonous after doing same or similar workout for a long period of time; it can get a little boring even if you add new elements in your fitness regime over time. The boredom can make you break the routine and fall back into the grip of unhealthy habits. The best way to sustain fitness activities is defining goals and moving towards them.
