1 . If challenges get you psyched to work out:
30 Day Fitness Challenge
Download the app, create your profile, and enter how many pushups you can do, how long you can run, and how often you exercise and the app will put together weekly equipment-free workout routines. That’s cool and all, but the 30-day challenge feature will get you even more pumped about going after your fitness goals. Select a challenge like Cardio Blast or Sexy Legs and Butt and tune in daily for your workout vid, which range from 14 to 26 minutes each.
2 . If you want to make this fitness thing a habit:
8fit Workout and Meal Planner
$60/year or $30/3 months on iTunes and Google Play
You out here just trying to move more than you normally do? Then, a custom workout routine by 8fit could be clutch. The app chooses a workout plan for you based on your weight, goals, and criteria like how many pushups you can do in a row. From there, you can expect a body weight workout from 8fit three to five days a week. Plus, the app can also track your steps, encouraging you to walk it out more frequently when you’re not sweating it out. And if that 10- to 20-minute sweat sesh isn’t enough for you, throw in one of their “classes” like yoga and core strength.
3. If you don’t own a single fitness prop:
Free on iTunes and Google Play
The free version of this app includes 900 equipment-free workouts based on time rather than a set number of reps. Chose between high-intensity interval training and strength-building workouts, which last between five and 30 minutes.
For a fitness assessment and custom plan to help you reach specific fitness goals, like building muscle or increasing your endurance, you can opt into a 12-week coaching plan beginning at $35.
4. If you’re new to working out:
$15/month, $100/year (with 30-day free trial) on iTunes and Google Play
Aaptiv has more than 2,500 on-demand workouts lasting as few as seven minutes for different fitness levels, including beginner. Each sweat session is led by a trainer who talks you through a treadmill or outdoor run, elliptical session, race training, cycling, strength training, stretching, or yoga. Even better: Each is set to a playlist made of popular songs you might actually know, as opposed to lame stock music.
