Try These Fitness Apps
Do you love to workout? Do you find that it improves your mood? Helps you sleep better? Reduces your stress and anxiety? These are just some of the many benefits that exercise gives you.
And, while you can head to the gym for a good workout, there are other options. There are tons of YouTube videos available with great workouts you can do at home. Or, you can just use your phone to find an app that can help you work up a sweat.
If you are looking for a new app or to change up your current workout regimen, then some of these may help.
- 8fit: In 2017, 8fit was voted one of the best apps from Apple and an Editor’s Choice for Google – so you know it’s good. It has all sorts of workouts, such as Tabata, yoga, and boxing, which means you can constantly be mixing it up. Additionally, the app has a nutrition component where you can find recipes and receive a customized meal plan based on your needs.
- Charity Miles: Are you a runner? Are you always out hitting the pavement or the trails as you work to extend your mileage or increase your speed? What if your running miles could do some good? With the Charity Miles app, they can do just that. You can use the app to track your movement (not just running), and for every mile you move, your designated charity (from the ones they choose to work with) receives money from their corporate sponsors.
- Aaptiv: With thousands of different workouts, Aaptiv may have one of the most extensive selections for those looking to be active. The workouts are all audio-based, which means that once you choose a workout based on type (for example, going for a run or yoga), duration, trainer, and music – you’re ready to go. Just put on your headphones and get started.
- ROMWOD: ROMWOD touts itself as an app that can help “optimize your range of motion, boost athletic performance, and accelerate recovery.” ROMWOD states that you don’t need any special equipment to do their workouts, but they do suggest a yoga mat and a couple of other items that you may see in some of their classes. Take advantage of the 7-day free trial, so you can try it before you invest.
- Asana Rebel: If you’re looking for an app that can provide you with workouts and more, then download Asana Rebel. Asana Rebel sees itself as a health and fitness app all in one. You can find workouts, take health quizzes, listen to soothing sleep sounds, meditations, and music. It offers a lot to improve your physical and mental well-being.
- Nike Training Club: It only makes sense that one of the world’s largest makers of athletic apparel has an app for working out. The Nike Training Club workouts have all been designed by trainers, and you can find yoga, cardio, strength training, and more on the app. Some workouts do require equipment – which makes this a great app to use at the gym.
- Fitbod: Fitbod has a training algorithm that “understands your strength-training ability, studies your past workouts, and adapts to your available gym equipment.” As you get stronger, the Fitbod workouts should get increasingly challenging. You can try it for free to see if it’s the app for you.
- Jefit: With personalized workouts, the ability to track your training, and the means to analyze your results, Jefit has a lot to offer those who love to exercise. If you buy a 12-month “membership,” it’s only $3.33/month – which is not a bad price at all.
Do you use an app for your workouts? Is it one of these or another one? Whether you use an app or not to exercise, it’s just important that you move your body every day in a way that you enjoy and keeps you healthy.
