The best fitness apps | Apps to get fit

New year, new me? Yeah yeah, we’ve heard it all before. Stick to your resolution this year with these fitness apps.


The festive season has come and gone, meaning it’s no longer acceptable to have mince pies for breakfast. Boring, we know! As 2019 powers on, it’s time to up the ante on your fitness regime. 

It can be hard to fit exercise into a hectic lifestyle. Putting some time aside every day to work out will help you reap rewards not only physically, but mentally too. Although you might not be able to make it to the gym for your favourite yoga class, we’ve found some handy fitness apps that let you work effective exercise into your day from the comfort of your own home.

You can choose the length of your session, rest times between exercises, and chart your recent progress.
