Being fitness forward is a thing that is becoming more and more popular. Whether that’s going on a brisk morning jog before work, preparing yummy and nutritious meal preps or even exercising from the comfort of your own home – people are putting in the work to become healthier. However, we can’t always be on top of our game, sometimes we might feel a bit lost within our fitness journey, and this is where health and fitness apps step in to help provide some advice, support and routine. We’ve put together a list of some of the best fitness apps for Android and iPhone to help support you on your fitness journey.
Home Workout – No Equipments
Squeezing in a trip to the gym amongst your busy schedule can sometimes be problematic, this is where home workouts step in. The free ‘Home Workout – No Equipment’ app available on both Android and iOS provides effective and detailed daily workout plans that specifically target core muscle groups – it’s basically a personal trainer built into your phone. On set up, the app will ask you what you want your focus area to be, what your main goal is and what motivates you the most. A professional coach will then act as you’re on your screen workout buddy guiding you through each activity, step by step no equipment needed. If you perhaps have a major event coming up that you want to be in great shape for, or if you just want to be looking your best within a certain timeframe, the app will allow you to create and design workout plans based on a certain time limit. Want a quick 4-week plan? – no problem. The Home Workout – No Equipment app will always have you covered.
