Hey friends, today I’m sharing my 5 fitness apps for home workouts to keep you healthy. The recent pandemic has made it harder than ever to keep up with your fitness, but I found it was motivating to find an app that challenged me to work out and also see and feel results from the workout.
I’ve been a huge fan of using fitness apps for a while now since it’s a budget-friendly way to meet your fitness goals at home. You basically have access to a personal trainer at your fingertips. It’s also a great way to challenge yourself without the commitment of monthly gym fees. I hope sharing my favorite apps will inspire you to work on becoming the best version of yourself while you at home.
Fitness apps for home workouts
This is my newest download and I honestly LOVE Melissa Wood Health. I started following her on Instagram over a year ago and was excited when she came out with this yoga and pilates-inspired app. One of my favorite ways to use the app is by doing the Full Body + Meditation session. It instantly turns my day around and I highly recommend checking out some of her intense workouts. Trust me you will be feeling it the next day.
I have been using the Sweat app by Kayla Itsines for over a year, and I loved it so much that I ended up purchasing an annual subscription. There are real results that happen if you follow the program and they showcase it on #BBGTransformation. I like this because it’s very accessible to anyone of any level and is complete with at-home workouts and gym workouts that actually push you. One of the things I’ve really enjoyed about BBG (Bikini Body Guide) is the short 30-minute workouts because they are very effective when you have little time.
I love running, and I always will. I keep this app on my phone whenever I go for runs and I want to start tracking my progress. The app remembers your runs using GPS in your phone tells you the pace and even shows the number of calories you’ve burnt. But, my favorite thing is inviting my friends on the runs through the app, and sharing my progress with them. It’s great to keep you motivated and it always helps to have a friend do a challenge with you.
Tone it up was new to me, and I have been feeling so sore after following these workouts. I like how fun and quick the workouts are, I usually finish a killer workout in 10 – 20 minutes. I really like having the option of trying 100’s of different workouts from yoga, barre, weight training, HIIT, boxing and more. It works well for me since I have a toddler who has a short attention span.
This is one app that I recently started using and really enjoying. It’s an 8-week guide, that according to the website it’s for “couch potatoes to 5k runners in 8 weeks”. The guide alternates between walking and running until you build up strength and you only workout 3 times a week for 30 – 40 minutes with breaks in between. I’m really excited to give this a go because I want to start running consistently again and maybe even challenge myself to do a marathon this year. Anyway, its a good way for beginners to try something new like running and maybe it will turn into something more.
