Free Weight Loss Fitness Apps
The Kombat Group weight loss program mixes a variety of classes such as Boxing, Muay Thai and functional training – all of which have been scientifically proven to be successful for weight loss. And unsurprisingly, our program currently has a 95% success rate and a 25% return rate.
One thing that our weight loss customers always say is that whenever they need motivation, they always get it from the trainers, and of course, peers at the camp. But another source of motivation for people who want to lose weight is downloading a fitness app on their phone.
And even though we do weekly weigh-ins and body composition reports for each of our customers, it's helpful to have more detailed data saved on your phone. Most of these fitness apps have amazing features such as calorie tracking, goal setting, heart-rate monitors and blood pressure tracking.
In fact, studies have found that logging your food doubles your weight loss and a study by the Journal of Medical Internet Research supports the finding that mobile apps can be extremely effective in achieving weight, fitness and diet goals. This is because watching raw data about yourself and seeing your goals being smashed every week, can be extremely motivating.
