As promised on Monday’s post, I’m breaking down my all time favorite workout apps today. I’ve been working out at home for the last 7-8 years, consistently, and over those years, I’ve tried as many workouts as possible. Some I’ve loved, and some I’ve hated. Some that are too expensive, and some that you can’t believe you can get for free! What once were the days of popping in a DVD in the wee morning hours so you don’t disturb the rest of your family, is now on an app, for half the price – so the at-home workout game is cheaper and easier than ever before.
My Five Favorite Workout Apps
Tone It Up Studio
I’ll start with my most used app first – the Tone It Up Studio app.
I have loved the Tone It Up Girls for years! They have some of the best free workouts on YouTube and I just love their personalities. They make workouts fun, upbeat and of course easy to look at, with their tropical locations. They released their Studio app last year and you can bet I signed up right away. The app is $12.99 a month and includes a full library of workouts as well as a studio feature, where you sign up for classes at a set time.
The benefit of the studio feature is it follows their training schedule, so you hop on the app and you know exactly what workout to do that day, without having to choose for yourself. If you don’t want to follow a schedule, you can pick and choose from their library on demand. The app not only includes their workouts, but workouts from expert trainers that they love! I highly recommend the app and think the price is spot on.
I remember seeing ads for Daily Burn for years before ever giving it a try. Their basic app is $14.99 a month and includes a vast array of workouts.
What I love most about the Daily Burn app is the amount of options. There are workouts from nearly every type of fitness style – Barre, Yoga, HIIT, Crossfit style, Weight Training – the list goes on. Just like the days of purchasing a DVD program, you can follow a complete program on Daily Burn or mix it up. Y’all know I love to mix it up! I’ve recently been doing Bob Harper’s Black Fire and it is KILLER! Like the type of workout you feel like you need a full blown nap after – and maybe an IV. I’m exaggerating, but it’s intense. Daily Burn is also very well priced for what you’re offered and I highly recommend it!
Nike Training Club
I stumbled upon this app years ago, when there weren’t as many apps on the market. It is totally free!!
There are many workouts and training styles, but this one isn’t my favorite. It’s pieced together video of the moves rather than a full follow along video, which I prefer. However, you can’t beat the fact that it’s free and the workouts are effective!
Another freebie! This app has a mixture of workouts from cardio, strength to yoga. For being a free app, the workouts are pretty good and easy to follow.
They are full length, which I love! I don’t love that it doesn’t have a calendar to follow, you do have the ability to schedule your workouts. However, I prefer to have a pre-set schedule so I’m not just randomly doing workouts.
This one is free too! However, if you want the calendar to follow you have to pay $.99.
This app streams her YouTube vidoes! There are also app exclusive videos, you can purchase for $.99 each. My favorite part about this app is the links to recipes, that is something that is lacking in the other apps.
The fitness world is always evolving. It’s becoming more and fun and more affordable to stay active these days, so what are you waiting for?! Do we share any of the same favorite apps?
