For our November Shoutout, we chose the topic of fitness. How ironic that Lisa (also known as the member shoutout person) had a bad cold right around that time, and the publication of the post was delayed to the point that it's now December.

But that doesn't matter, because actually it's always a good time to take care of your personal fitness. Only maybe skip first of January because then the gyms and running tracks are full of people who need a special date to take care of their health. πŸ˜›

For everyone else, today we have three apps from developers who have not only created amazing concepts, but also kept privacy in mind while improving the app. Here, no information about your personal physical characteristics is transmitted to big tech corporations. And that's something you should also keep in mind besides personal fitness: protection of personal information.

Discover new routes with MeandR

MeandR – Walking Workouts

MeandR encourages people to get outside for a walk by generating random routes, at the distance (or number of steps) they chose, then challenges them to complete the route within a time. It uses Apple Maps to generate straight out or circular routes that start and finish from wherever they are. While doing the route it tracks progress, time, and steps and notifies them when they get to each waypoint and the finish.

Explore natural parks with Rheaparks

Rheaparks

Rheaparks is a free app that helps you discover parks, find hikes and plan your trip or vacation. The app currently covers 11 natural parks in France and wthe developers are always working on adding more. For now the focus is on France before expanding to Europe. All parks come with a carefully curated selection of hikes, representing the best trails one can do to visit and enjoy these beautiful places. Many details are provided to the user, including statistics about the hikes, rules, trail maps and just about everything that’s needed to enjoy the time spent outside. Users can read original descriptions for even more details and even view photos provided by the community!

Level up your workouts with Personal Best

Personal Best

Personal Best helps you level up your workouts and train better. It takes your workouts from Apple Health and turns them into insights, interesting statistics and leaderboards. You can even turn workouts into custom images to share with others. Unlike many other workout-tracking apps, Personal Best is obsessed with keeping your data private and on device.

A statement from the founders of TelemetryDeck

We are aware that there is a dangerous trend around thinness and that a lot of bad advice about sports is circulating. We explicitly distance ourselves from this. Our goal is to support sensible and appropriate training. Please be responsible with your health and get advice from a doctor or trainer if needed.
