Turn to one of the best workout apps, and you don’t have to worry about going outdoors this summer in less-than-stellar shape. An app on your phone can help you get in some exercise no matter where you are, offering tips, guided routines and tracking tools to monitor your progress.
Even with gyms re-opening, the best workout apps still serve a valuable role as motivator, statistician and all-round exercise buddy. And whether you enjoy cycling on one of the best exercise bikes, running on the best treadmills, strength training with the best home gym equipment or some other form of fitness, there’s an app tailored to your favorite type of workout.
Apple wants to challenge the best workout apps with Apple Fitness Plus, a subscription service designed for the Apple Watch, even though it works with other devices like the iPhone. The $9.99-a-month service offers guided workouts, and we’ve found that Apple Fitness Plus gets better the longer you stick with it.
