Popular Fitness Apps That Will Get You Up and Moving

Posted on October 4th, 2017 by Orthopaedic Specialty Group

Not everyone can make it to a fitness class at 5:30 p.m. sharp, or even make it to the gym after work. But luckily, we live in a world where there really is an app for everything — including your workouts. Whether you just don’t like exercising in public or only have a few minutes a day to get in a quick workout, these apps will keep you moving according to your schedule.

Fitness apps


This on-demand video service lets users stream fitness classes of all kinds right into their home. From more relaxing exercises, like yoga, to high-intensity Zumba workouts, there’s something for everyone.

Daily Yoga

Studies show that the health benefits of yoga, especially for people over the age of 50, are vast. With a personalized coach and dozens of poses to choose from, Daily Yoga will turn you into a “yogi” in no time. The app even offers a meditation class after your workout for people who are looking to destress even more.


With routines lasting from 5 to 60 minutes, everyone has time for a “Sworkit workout.” No matter what type of exercise you choose (from yoga and cardio to strength training and even stretching) Sworkit’s alternating high and low-intensity exercises make it a great choice for people of all skill levels. In fact, it was named the app that most closely adhered to the American College of Sports Medicine’s training guidelines, in a 2015 study.

Charity Miles

Charity Miles helps you to change your life, while also changing other’s. Sponsored by companies like Johnson & Johnson and Chobani, they’ll donate a few cents to charity, per mile you walk, run, or bike. What better incentive do you need to hit the pavement?

Freeletics Bodyweight

Looking to build muscle, but don’t want to buy all of the necessary weights and equipment? Freeletics helps you to build muscle using only your body weight. Best of all, you can take a fitness test before you start to help you create a customized fitness routine.

Daily Ab Workout

If you’re looking to target just your core, Daily Ab Workout will do just that. Appropriately named, this free app will send you daily exercises, stretches, and combinations that specifically strengthen your abs.

Not only can daily exercise help reduce your risk of certain diseases, but it can also aid in your recovery after many surgeries.
