Great apps for healthy aging

Fitness: Endomondo

Start by taking a fitness test to assess your fitness level, and the app makes a suggested plan based on your favorite forms of exercise. The app uses GPS to track fitness activities. The "virtual trainer", Endo, will check in during the workout to tell you to pick up the pace (or that you're doing better than usual).

Nutrition: Noom Coach

Noom helps you keep a food diary, using their extensive database of food nutritional information. It then suggests simple changes you can make for a healthier lifestyle. Upgrades include a virtual support group and resources, or a personal coach in the pro version.

Brain Health: Lumosity

Lumosity is full of fun games designed to improve attention, memory, problem solving. Set aside 15 minutes three times a week to do these games based on neuroscience.

Sleep and Relaxation: Check out this list of 2015's best sleep and insomnia apps. We personally love Relax Melodies for creating a calm environment and blocking out background noise at any time.
