Scared of the gym? No need to be with these top workout Apps

Scared of the gym? No need to be with these top workout Apps

The new age of home fitness is continuing to flourish with amazing workout apps. Forget Davina Mcall doing lunges in the lounge; the latest apps offer personalised, trainer-built workouts right at your fingertips.

Whether you like pumping iron at the gym or doing bodyweight HIIT, the top apps will help push your limits. There’s hundreds to choose from, but here’s 3 of the best.   


From old school DVDs to YouTube channels, we’ve all had many attempts at home fitness. But who really sticks to it?  That’s all about to change with Fiit.

Ready to “revolutionise the fitness world”, this new app gives you on-demand access to live fitness classes run by elite fitness experts. Classes include HIIT, strength training, yoga, pilates and breathwork. All from your pocket. It’s basically using technology to give you the boutique gym experience.

So what’s different about it? It comes with a wearable heart-strap tracker and mat so your progress is tracked during the workout. Your stats are displayed on screen and you gain “fitness points” depending on your effort – not your fitness levels! The live leaderboard allows you to train, and compete, with friends, giving you the ultimate motivation to exercise. 

Download the Fiit app for free, or go for Premium Membership which includes the heart strap monitor, TV connector and stand. If you’re not satisfied after 10 classes you’ll get your money back, no problem. We think it’s such a great app that anyone who purchases a 3 Monthly+ Pass, gets 25% off a Fiit Subscription.


Struggling to fit in your workouts? Exercise excuses be damned! This app has the answer. Sworkit includes customized programs that allow you to fit in a solid workout with whatever time you’ve got. Whether that’s 30 minutes before breakfast or 3 minutes between NetFlix episodes.

Choose the type of workout – cardio, strength, yoga or stretching – select the minutes, then follow the precision-timed workout to help you reach your goals in your own time. 

Sworkit is free for 30 days, then £21.20 each quarter.


Whether you hit the gym or your living room, Fitbod takes the heavy lifting out of workout planning, leaving you to focus on the lifting. Using artificial intelligence, it learns from your previous workouts to create a challenging workout plan adapted to available gym equipment.

Cardio, circuit training, resistance and strength, bodyweight and stretching are all covered. It guides you precisely on weight, reps and sets according to the muscles you want to work – no muscle group left behind. The more you train, the better it gets at pushing your limits.
