The Best Free Apps for Exercise
From running to yoga to...being chased by zombies
Chances are you’re already glued to your phone. (It’s OK, we’re guilty, too.) So why not use it for good? Namely, getting a toned bod.
That’s where these seven fitness apps, organized by workout personality, come in handy. They’re all free for iOS and Android, giving you another reason to move on from bad Instagrams.
If you’re a runner
Download RunKeeper, a tracking app that maps your runs for you. It's pretty basic but definitely handy for monitoring your personal miles.
If you’re a yogi
Download Daily Yoga, which offers 50 virtual classes (all 30 minutes or shorter) or, alternately, voice coaching.
If you strength train
Download StrongLifts 5x5, a 45-minute, thrice weekly program that guides you along five free-weight exercises.
If you’re a people person
Download Nike+ Training Club, a compilation of more than 100 workouts with an emphasis on the social experience of sharing your progress and motivating your pals.
If you prefer to go solo
Download Sworkit Lite Personal Workout, a customizable circuit-training app that can be done anywhere (it uses only bodyweight) and lets you choose your intensity and workout length.
If you’re in a rush
Download 7 Minute Workout, a 12-exercise regimen that you can do in--you guessed it--seven minutes.
