With so many fitness apps on the market, how do you know which one to choose? Here are some factors to consider before downloading:

  • Credible instructors. For safety purposes and best results, we recommend choosing an app with workouts that are created or led by certified fitness experts.
  • Fitness goals. Do you want to build strength or run faster? Or maybe you’re interested in losing weight or becoming more flexible. Whatever your motivation is, be sure to select an app that caters to your exercise needs.
  • Budget. While some are totally free, most apps require a monthly subscription cost. Luckily, all the apps on our list offer a free trial period, so you can try a few classes before going all in.
  • Equipment needed. Most apps offer classes that require some equipment, such as yoga blocks, dumbbells, or kettlebells. Unless you’re willing to purchase new gym equipment, look for an app with classes that are compatible with your current home gym setup.
  • User reviews. While you should definitely take reviews with a grain of salt, reading what other users think can be valuable intel as you decide whether a workout app will be the right fit for you.

There’s nothing wrong with trying out a few fitness apps before settling on one — the most important thing is that it helps you reach your goals safely and effectively.

Best free fitness app

Nike Training Club

Work out with Nike trainers live or on demand with the Nike Training Club app. After downloading the app, you’ll get customized workout suggestions based on the results of a quick quiz.

The app offers a range of exercise styles, including high intensity interval training (HIIT), yoga, core, cardio, and strength training workouts. You can also search by muscle group, workout focus, and equipment to find your perfect class.

As a bonus, in 2020, Nike made its premium content free for all users.

Best app for group fitness lovers

obé Fitness

obé Fitness brings the feel of a boutique group fitness class to your living room with more than 15 types of classes, including HIIT, dance cardio, sculpt, and more.

The app offers 20 live classes each day — filmed in a fun neon studio — in addition to its extensive on-demand library of more than 7,000 classes.

Workouts range from 10 minutes to an hour long. The top-notch instructors bring the energy and will even shout you out during the live classes.

It’s also a favorite of Healthline Nutrition and Fitness Editor Kelli McGrane, MS, RD, who appreciates that the large selection of 20-minute classes makes it easy (and fun) to squeeze a sweat session into her day.

Best tried-and-true fitness app

Peloton

Peloton is best known for its cycling classes, but with the Peloton digital app you can access workouts from strength training and HIIT to outdoor running and yoga.

You can work out in real time with expert instructors and other members from around the world or take one of the app’s

When gyms were temporarily closed at the start of the pandemic, more people turned to fitness apps to get their daily workouts in. This era transformed the way we approach exercising, and in some cases improved our consistency since we could do it without leaving our home.

For people who haven’t returned to the gym yet, it’s comforting to know that your workout is right at your fingertips. For others, fitness apps have become a more cost-effective option than a gym membership. There are also users who prefer a hybrid workout style, which allows them to access their fitness program either at home or in the gym. 

There are hundreds of fitness apps available whether you own an iPhone or Android. This can be overwhelming if you aren’t sure which are best for your needs. Are you a total beginner, or a seasoned runner or yogi? Depending on what you’re looking for, different apps will work best for you. 

We’ve tested and researched many of the popular available apps to determine which ones are the most useful. Some key things we took into account were:

  • How easy the app is to use
  • Unique features users may not get anywhere else
  • The versatility of the app
  • Fair price

As a former trainer and a fitness junkie who has tried various apps throughout the years, I’m aware that not all of the workouts on fitness apps are one-size-fits-all, and it’s important to be user-inclusive.

Conveniently, many of these apps offer free trials first. That way you can give them a fair shake and decide if you plan on committing. Use our list of the best fitness apps as a guide both at home and/or in the gym.   

Nike Training Club

When I first started working out regularly, Nike Training Club was my go-to app. It provides various workout programs such as bodyweight exercises, high-intensity interval training (HIIT), cross-training, yoga, core exercises and even expert health tips by Nike trainers to keep you on track. 

The workouts are easy to follow because there are video demonstrations of each exercise with the allotted time you should be doing them. This keeps you from losing track during your workout and mentally prepares you for the following exercise. The app also connects to your Apple watch to provide health metrics such as your heart rate and logs your activities. 

The best part of this app is that it’s free and gives you access to many resources no matter if you’re a beginner or more advanced. 

Future

The Future app is unique because it connects you to an elite personal fitness coach who checks in regularly, gives you feedback and customizes the workout for you. They take into account your fitness level, goals and even what equipment is available to you. The creators of the app believe that connection is the best way to stick to your goals. That’s why they
