Sasee Gets Healthy on the Go – Apps for Diet and Fitness!

By Leslie Moore

Going to the Barre studio, gym or yoga studio is more than good for you – it is FUN and so educational.

But, for the time in between classes, fitness apps are a good choice. There are also apps that help you eat healthier without spending hours each week on meal planning. Sasee staff share a few of their favorites and why they like them!

Sasee editor, Leslie says, “This app doesn’t replace my regular classes, but it’s great for the days I can’t get to the studio. I love that it has different difficulty levels and classes of different lengths.”
