5 Fitness Apps You Need [Guest Post]

This guest post is written by Lauren Byrd. Lauren is a contributing writer for Orangetheory Fitness. She regularly produces content for a variety of lifestyle and fitness blogs. She loves to spend her free time traveling and being active.


Our society is going through a fitness craze (but I’m not complaining)! New technologies, wearables and trackers (hello Fitbit) are coming out by the day it seems. It is “cool” to be fit. If you prefer to work out at home or like taking a day between your group fitness classes to do your own workout, then there are apps out there for you to take advantage of.

If you find yourself spending time scrolling through Instagram or your other favorite digital app, then make a choice to spend that time scrolling through a fitness app and get a good workout in! With notifications, you won’t ever forget to make time to work on your fitness and get inspired and motivated.

It was really hard to pick only 5, but I have put together a list of my top 5 favorite fitness apps in no particular order (I couldn’t pick!) that you need to download today!

For anyone looking for that extra motivation, this app provides you with your very own personal trainer (for an extra cost). It turns workouts into a game which allows you to win points as you go and compete against others who are in the Fitocracy community. The community also gives you that extra boost, support and motivation to succeed in your fitness goals! There are also tailored workouts for your experience and specific goal.

This app has to be one of my favorites! It provides some hardcore pre-made workouts for different levels, times and body parts. It is also customizable so you can create exactly the workout that you want to do. You can also watch video demonstrations of the workouts as well as receive verbal instruction and cues by real trainers. The app combines interval training which maximizes the effectiveness of your workout as well as random exercises so your body doesn’t get used to a specific routine!

If you’ve ever wanted to get into running, but don’t know how to start – this is the perfect app for you. Sometimes people start off too fast and run too hard at first – that’s why most people rebel against running! Before this app, that was definitely me. I have never really been the greatest at running, but I’m happy to say that using this app definitely prepared me to run my first 5K a few months ago! It is the perfect training app because it increases the intensity as you go!

If you’ve ever watched any YouTube fitness videos, then you’ve probably watched a video of Cassey Ho. In this app, she provides fitness videos, healthy recipes, a community forum and even a monthly workout calendar! The calendar is awesome because it gives you planned workouts every day as they should be paired!

unnamed-3Zombies, Run

This is another fitness app that turns workouts into a game! Get fit all while escaping zombies. Running becomes way more fun, and you really forget that you are working out because you are involved in missions and chases all while being connected to 1 million players all over the world! If you’re a Walking Dead fan, intrigued by Zombies, or just want to be motivated to sweat it out during a run, you must download this app NOW!


What is your favorite app for staying fit and healthy?
