Top Apps College Football Players Can Use To Improve Fitness

    With the fierce competition that exists in NCAA college football games, players need to be at the very peak of their fitness. When they’re not training at college, they can push their fitness one step further to increase their chances of getting onto the team and on the playing field. Gone are the days when you need to pay a personal trainer and huge amounts of cash to take your fitness levels one step further. Although a personal trainer can help, with a little motivation and submission to what your smartphone app tells you, you can improve your fitness and achieve an edge over other players for those up-coming NCAAF college football games. 

    Coming up soon in the NCAAF league is a game between two high-flying teams, Baylor and Oklahoma. These two college football teams are boasting a 6-game winning streak. Which of these will end the other’s winning streak? Watch the next game to find out. Another notable game coming up is the Michigan Wolverines against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on October 26th. Can you predict who will claim the game’s first touchdown? As ESPN has Notre Dame as favourites to win, we think that they stand a good chance of getting points down first. Or perhaps Michigan will train harder than ever and beat the favourites to create an upset. Only time will tell. Meanwhile, currently-ranked-last Washington will be hoping to up its game against 12th-ranked Oregan and get a win on the board on the19th of October.

    Perhaps using the fitness apps below will help lower-performing teams jump up in the rankings in the coming weeks. >>>>> Photo by Luke Durward / (License)

    Fitness app 


    This app includes pre-conceived training sessions by qualified instructors that complement your exercise sessions. While you’re training, you can listen to the experienced instructors who will push you in the type of workout you require. This could be high-intensity training or running, through to yoga sessions.  It allows you to download workouts or create your own.  


     Just click on ‘Start your workout’ on this app, and it will outline your run or hike through the roads or mountains with its GPS. During the workout, you get live updates so you can see what speed you are exercising at and how far you’ve travelled, which gives you motivation to increase your speed or travel further.  Once your workout is done, you can see exactly where you’ve been and the calories you’ve burned, and you can also save your workout map and details so you can beat it next time. 


    When you’re not training with your college, you may be tempted to delve into the snack bar for sweet treats. This app is designed, however, to bring the guilt. Enter in your food and drink each day, and MyFitnessPal will tell you how many calories you’ve taken in (as compared to the average for males and females); the results will tell you how many calories you need to shed to be at the top of your game. This should keep your fitness game on track for that next football thriller.  

    Nike+ Training 

    Join the crème-de-la-creme of athletes on this app as professionals like Christiano Ronaldo and Serena Williams share their routines. You can choose from short workouts, equipment-free workouts and others to meet your needs. An added incentive for meeting your goals is gaining exclusive Nike products or experiences. You can even use Apple music to play great playlists.  

    Freeletics Bodyweight

    If it’s specifically body strength and power you want to improve on, without the use of gym equipment, then Freeletics Bodyweight offers many video workouts that don’t require costly weights. With this app you’ll be using your own bodyweight to increase your muscle power and get you running strides ahead of your opponents. Get ready for lots of lunges, squats and press-ups in varied workouts. >>>>> Photo by Michael Barera / (CC BY-SA 4.0)

    Daily yoga

    Okay, this app isn’t for the hardcore exercise fanatics out there, but yoga is great for preventing stiff muscles and relieving stress or nerves before a big game. What’s more, you can do it in the comfort of your own home. You can take it one step further after choosing from 30 physical yoga sessions and finding out all about master meditation. This could give you the mindful edge over your competitors on matchday.
