Who doesn’t want to keep fit even when we are not able to hit the gym? Nobody right? That’s why in today’s article, we present you with a list of the best apps for exercising at home, so that the impossibility of going out or the lack of time does not prevent you from continuing to exercise. This will help you avoid spending money in gyms, as these are mobile applications that can replace your personal trainer and provide you with all the information you need.
The eleven suggestions we have presented to you are cross-platform, meaning that they have versions for Android and iOS. Most are for all types of workouts, although we’ve included a few specific to yoga or abs.
This app is based on high-intensity circuit training, or HICT, and is ideal for those looking for an intense workout in a short amount of time. The application offers 12 routines of 30 seconds each, followed by 10 seconds of rest.
So if you don’t have any equipment at home or don’t have the time or possibility to go to the gym, the exercises in this app won’t take too long. It has exercise blocks divided into categories, although you have to unlock some of them by watching video adverts or doing exercises from the Original category. The app always explains in detail how to do each exercise.
Exercise at Home
The name of this app tells you all you need to know about it: its mission is to allow you to do exercises at home without the need for special equipment or going to the gym. The exercises it will offer will all use your body weight.
The app will offer different types of routines for the main muscle groups in your body, from abdominals to glutes. It also includes warm-up and stretching routines, and for each exercise, the app will show you guides with animations and videos to make sure you’re doing it with the right posture.
Another application dedicated to home workouts, it stands out for the fact that it allows you to set alarms to schedule workouts so that you don’t forget them or get too lazy to do them. In addition to the routine, it will also help you warm up before each one, and at the end you will also do some stretching.
As for the rest, it is an application that, like almost all of them, has detailed explanations of each exercise, supported by images, so that you can do them correctly. You can also create personalised routines and keep track of your weight and body mass index.
An app that gives you different workout plans that can vary in difficulty. This helps to ensure that if you’re a beginner, you don’t end up with a workout that leaves you dragging your feet. As the name suggests, this is an app that offers exercises that use your body weight, so you don’t need any equipment.
The app also lets you save your progress so you can compare scores and see how you are improving, has sharing options and is compatible with Apple Health. On the downside, it has a limited free mode and you’ll need to subscribe for three, six or twelve months to access all the options.
Fitbit is one of the best-known companies in the field of wearables such as sports bands, and not only does it have its own app to measure your daily activity, but it also offers this other action-oriented app as a personal coach. You can use it on both mobile phones and tablets.
One of the best features of the app is that you don’t need a branded wristband or watch to do the exercises, it’s like a separate alternative. It offers different workouts ranging from 7 minutes to an hour, and you can choose from hundreds of exercises depending on how much time you have.
