Kuldeep Yadav
When he is not getting out seasoned batsmen, 24-year-old cricketer Kuldeep Yadav likes to unwind by cycling. Yadav, who is a rare breed of Chinaman bowlers in the country, says cycling has been his passion ever since his parents introduced him to it.

“I have loved the bicycle since I was a child. Growing up, my friends and I used to cycle a lot,” he says.

The spinner considers cycling to be a great fitness tool and if he could, he would opt for cycling over anything else. “I can do 10 km every day. As cricketers, we have to mix cardio and weights, so there is a cap on how much I can cycle, now for my fitness,” he says.

Fitso gives you recommendations on the basis of your BMI (which it calculates according to the height and weight your input). If you want to lose weight, it will give you the option to track your daily calories intake with a diet journal as well as ask you to burn calories with physical activity. You need to set a target weight and choose whether you want to do only a diet or diet & exercise. We like the clean app interface. You can also opt for a coach service which starts at just Rs 149/week.

As the name suggests, this free app helps you calculate your calorie intake basis what you eat and drink. We liked that it has an option of adding how much weight you want to gain/lose per week (and it accordingly informs how many calories you should consume each day). As long as you input your food and drink correctly, the app shows you a nutrient breakdown, making it easy to see how much protein, fat and sugar you have consumed. You can view your progress in a graphic form, sync data with third party devices and apps as well as have the app remind you to eat food on time.

A smart weighing scale helps you keep a track of various parameters. Apart from your weight, a smart scale can typically measure BMI, muscle mass, bone mass, body fat, basal metabolism and visceral fat. All the data is synced with a companion app for easy tracking. Some apps even let you create individual profiles — so that all the people using it can track weight loss progress individually. Some of the better options we reviewed include the Mi Body Composition Scale (Rs 1,999) and the Lenovo HS10 Smart Scale (Rs 2,799).

A dedicated fitness band is great for tracking your daily activity (as opposed to having an app on your phone). You can buy one starting as low as Rs 1,200 going up to Rs 20,000 or more. We recommend getting a fitness band that offers a heart rate tracker, good battery life and water resistance. We always recommend Fitbit if you can spend more. They have some of the best fitness bands like the Alta HR and upcoming Charge 3. However, their products are usually priced Rs 10k onwards. If you want to spend less, check out the following options.
