If you're a busy mom like me, or just busy in general, it can be hard fitting in a good workout. When you are traveling, have no time to hit the gym, or are short on time, there are many apps that come to the rescue to help you meet your fitness goals. After doing some research and review screening, I decided to download the "SWORKIT" app. After two months of using this app, I can say this:
It's user friendly, with straight-forward exercise selection with the option to pick a custom workout.
The free version has ads (they need to pay for their product somehow!) but they don't interrupt your workout.
I also love that you can choose between different types of exercise (Strength, cardio, yoga) as well as stretching. There are custom workouts that allow you to select exercises specific to your knees (for instance low impact/no jumping is a great option for people like me with bad knees).
You can choose the time you want to workout, or if all you have is 5 minutes, there's an option for that too!
SWORKIT has an excellent variety of exercises available so you won't get bored. I rarely end up doing the same exercise more than once.
Weights are not required, but I've added them in when exercising at home to increase the intensity of some exercises.
All in all, I think there are many great workout apps available now that there is such a high demand for mobile accessible fitness applications. For me, "SWORKIT" was a winner from day one....
Do any of you use workout apps? If so which one and what do you like/dislike about them?
