Home workout apps are a great way to get fit from the comfort of your own home without paying for gym membership. Whether you’re looking for a full-on workout or something to keep you motivated on the go, there are a number of excellent apps out there.
A good home workout app will offer a range of options so you can find a class that fits your time and budget, while allowing you to choose from a wide variety of exercises. You can also pick from pre-set sessions that you can work out to at a time and duration that suits you best, or live workouts led by expert trainers.
Boostcamp is a fantastic home workout app that’s free to use. It’s packed with some of the best workouts available in the market, and it includes a top-notch tracking and progression system. It also has a supportive community with options to connect to others and share your progress.
You can set yourself a fitness goal – lose weight, run faster or longer, build strength and so on – then select two to eight week programmes designed to hit your targets. You can tweak these based on your daily workout duration, the days you want to train and the equipment you have access to, and you’ll be given feedback throughout.
The app’s workouts are led by professional, enthusiastic instructors (you choose yours before running through a fitness test), who guide you through each exercise with clear video instructions. It’s a great option for beginners or those who might not be sure what to do.
It’s worth taking the time to try out some of these free workouts before you decide to pay for a subscription. While they don’t have the same high-end production standards as some premium offerings, they still provide a solid base of well-made videos with lots of customization options. You can turn on audio to hear the instructor tell you the drill timings or switch it off entirely, so you can work out to music if that’s what you prefer.
There are over 190 workouts in the app at the time of writing, and more are being added regularly. These include a lot of different styles, from yoga and strength to HIIT and cycling. Many don’t require any equipment at all, so you can work out in a studio or in your own living room.
Nike Training Club is a great option for those who prefer to use a gym but can’t afford one, or those who are looking for an on-demand service. You can search for workouts by muscle group and focus, with options to filter them by duration or level.
Unlike other fitness apps, this app doesn’t just show you the results of your workouts; it also tracks your progress and lets you track your achievements against your own personal goals. The app offers a free tier with some useful features, but a subscription is required for access to more content, including HD video guides and progress reports.
