  • Get Yourself in Shape with These Health and Fitness Apps

Are you feeling fat and lazy? Contrary to popular opinion, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get in shape. You can work out at home to lose weight. Couple that with some healthy eating and you’ll be feeling better in no time. To help you out, add a health and fitness app to your phone. Many of them are free. We’ve compiled a short list of the more popular ones for your benefit. See below for the top free apps in this category. 

FitOn – Free Fitness Workouts

This app has reviewed at 4.8 out of 5 stars. That’s about as high as it gets on Google Play. FitOngives you unlimited access to workout classes. You can participate in Yoga, Pilates, dance classes, and more, all from the comfort of your home or office. Run it through your phone and connect to a monitor, TV, or laptop. You can personalize your programs and work on cardio or strength. Workouts are only ten minutes. You can do that, right?

30 Day Fitness Challenge

Another high-ranking free app, 30 Day Fitness Challenge adds science and technology to the mix. This app will automatically record your training progress, remind you to work out every day, and increase exercise intensity in manageable steps. You can choose a thirty-day abdominal challenge, full body challenge, or butt challenge. Share your choices with friends on Facebook and challenge them to keep pace with you. 

Google Fit

No one does it better than Google. They didn’t just create a health and fitness app. They partnered with the World Health Organization (WHO) and the American Heart Association to create a system called “Heart Points.” These are activities designed to get your heart pumping and improve cardio-vascular activity. Each exercise you choose will be tracked and you’ll get instant insights and real-time stats. Set goals and your phone will track all activity for you, including biking, running, and walking. And yes, golf too. 

7 Minute Workout

The 7 Minute Workout app was voted Best of 2016 by Google Play. The 2020 version is even better. Over three million users have installed this app to lose weight and flatten stomachs. It’s simple to use. There are twelve exercises that you do for thirty seconds each, with ten second breaks in between each cycle. Have you been wanting to work out, but fear you don’t have the time? That excuse goes out the window with 7 Minute Workout. You could do this every morning and never be late for work. So much for time excuses. 

8Fit Workouts & Meal Planner

An exercise routine will do nothing for you if you don’t couple it with a healthy diet. 8Fit is much more than just another exercise app. It does include HiIT (High Intensity Training) workouts that range from five to twenty minutes each, but it also evaluates your current physical condition based on height and weight, then recommends a meal plan for every day that will help you achieve your fitness goals. 8Fit has been installed to over 10 million devices.
