You need these apps on your phone if you’re trying to get in shape and live a healthier lifestyle.
Not having enough time to train or workout is the most common excuse given by people for missing their gym sessions. The truth is though, that it is hard to find time to work out, particularly when you also have to consider getting changed into your gym clothes and then showering and changing afterward too. Even when working out at home, it can still feel hard to find time to work out. Well, not with the -minute workout app it isn’t.
The app available for Apple iOS iPhones and iPads, and Google Android smartphones and tablets gives you lightning-fast work out that will get your heart pumping and sweat pouring. What’s also great about this app is that the workouts it introduces don’t require any special equipment meaning you could start right now, if you wanted and be finished in less than ten minutes. It’s a workout plan you can do right now. Think about that and then think about what are you waiting for? Go get at it.
Daily Workouts is another fantastic app that will turn your home into your gym. Again, this app is all about bodyweight meaning you won’t have to splash out on any expensive equipment or specialist weights, dumbbells, or kettlebells. These workouts can be tailored to your fitness level and ability too with the shortest workouts clocking in at just five minutes and targeting specific parts of your body and muscle groups. You can then push these workouts all the way up to half an hour giving your body a more generalized workout

So, you’ve now got five apps that you can turn to help you live a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle even while stuck in your doors. The key to making progress with any of these apps though is sticking with it. It’s not about lifting the heaviest weights or pushing yourself harder than you’ve ever been pushed before. It is about setting yourself realistic goals and sticking with your program over a long period of time.
