I was wondering if anyone has any good recommendations for an app to keep track of activities done at the gym---both cardio and weight machines. I don't need something to show me how to do exercises, just something so that I can remember how much weight I used, how many reps, or time/level/elevation settings on the treadmill.

Thanks in advance for the help!

The website Fitocracy is pretty good for that as a site. I don't know how well it works from a mobile phone. It's invite-only right now, but easy to get invites-- drop me a private message if you want one.

Thank you, ladies!

I was thinking more along the lines of an app for my phone. I want it to be able to do something like---shoulder press, X pounds, X reps, X sets. It would replace pen and paper that gyms typically have to track your weights.

I use an app on my ipod called Gain Fitness but it only keeps track of weight workouts and they currently only have it for iphone and ipod. You plug in how long you want to work out, which muscle groups you want to focus on, all of your stats (gender, weight, height, age etc.), and you can plug in the amount of weight you are doing as you go. It keeps track of it on their web site too. I love it!

Bumping this thread as I recently joined fitocracy (have the app on my iphone) and I love it! Really motivating me to workout more and has excellent ideas for strength exercises. Dclemens, the app allows you to record all the information you listed.

If anyone else is on fitocracy, feel free to follow-me. My username there is umdterpsgirl.
