Favorite Fitness Apps

Read Time: 4 Minutes

Happy Sunday! Hope your first week of 2018 is starting off well. My first fitness post of the year is my favorite fitness apps. I use all of these apps on a regular basis, and have found them to be very useful.

What I love about all of these fitness apps, is you can access any of these resources anytime, anywhere straight from your smart phone.

Favorite Fitness Apps

 

App: Nike Training Club (free)

Nike Training App

What it does: Short story, this app is LIFE. They have a 100+ workouts with instructional audio and video clips showing the correct way to do the movement.

Some of my personal favorite exercises on the app are the “Glutes and Legs” found under the muscle group category, or “Endurance” under the workout type category.

Due to my core and lower back being weak lately, I have been doing a lot the core work and the videos are great! The workout below “super twist core series” is fantastic and killer! Here is an example of what the screen looks like once you’re in it:

What I love about Nike Training Club:  (I mean Im obsessed with this app)

  • Its absolutely fantastic if you don’t want to be overwhelmed with how or what to do for a workout
  • If you want a quick 20 minute workout at home, or at the gym
  • If you would like some ideas and guidance (has a huge vartiety of workouts)
  • The app syncs with Nike+ Run Club to keep track of your runs; you can also manually enter activities such as basketball, gym training, or tennis
  • Once you’re finished it will log your workout and you can even snap a photo and add a Nike filter over it 🙂
