Nevertheless, people seem to forget about those benefits of working out and staying active. We live faster than ever, and we still find it difficult to manage everything we planned on a daily bases.

The best workout apps can revolutionize the way you look at fitness and exercise. There are three golden ideals that all of the best fitness apps will strive to reach: convenience, affordability and sports science. Some of the best apps are:

  • Nike+ Training club,
  • Mobility WOD,
  • Daily yoga,
  • Pact,
  • Seconds.

The great thing is – if it doesn’t suit you, you can always try a new one. Of course, if one is not enough for you, make sure to try more of then at a time. There is no way not to get in shape quickly if you give it your best try.

Nike+ Training club

Whether you are interested in endurance, mobility or strength, this app can be the right for you. And, as a plus, it is very good for the eye, because it is a very stylish app. With 15 minutes workouts and longer endurance sessions, you can constantly change up your workout. One of the best workout apps features a lot of famous athletes. If you are into Serena Williams or Cristiano Ronaldo, you will be pleased to have them help you work a sweat. Can you get better motivation than that? If you use the Nike+ Run Club app, all your jogging efforts will be automatically synchronized to your Nike profile, too. That way you’ll have a complete picture of your fitness.

Mobility WOD

This app will help you perform basic maintenance on your body and increase your range of motion. You will be able to do that with the use of lacrosse balls, foam rollers, and resistance bands. This app will make running and weight lifting way more fun and comfortable. Of course, if you want to make sure that you don’t get injured during workouts, you should find a personal fitness trainer in Dubai. But, if you have already learned the right ways to do exercises, one of the best workout apps will help you stay motivated.

Daily yoga

If you like high definition video as a way of motivation, let some of the best workout apps like Daily yoga guide you. This app explores alternative ways to stay fit because fitness isn’t just about weights and pull-ups. Just ask any of the private yoga instructors in Dubai. There are 50 classes available with the durations under 30 minutes. There is also the part for people who like running – Yoga for runners. Unless you want to get pretty stiff, consider trying this app. Also, the app is great because the sessions are categorized according to the body part you want to focus on.

This fitness app is for the people who need some additional motivation. Perhaps you have moved to another country and you should stay fit and healthy. If your health isn’t the main concern to make you stay dedicated to workouts, maybe this will help. Don’t worry, you are not the only one who values money more than a good run.

So, how about gambling? Does that make your adrenaline rush? Maybe that is enough to get you started. The idea is to wager how many days you think you can work out, put some money where your mouth is and get running. The app pairs with your phone’s GPS as well as with RunKeeper, Fitbit, Jawbone Up and MapMyRun. The great part is that the more you stick to the programme you personally chose, the more money you can win. After all, you are competing with other members, so you don’t want to be the laziest, do you?


This app is great if you have difficulties to see the timer due to all the sweat that is pouring into your eyes. Why? Because the screen has a big countdown on it, and if that is not enough, there is more. The app gives you a clear audio signal for starting and stopping, so you will not miss your chance to rest. One more thing about one of the best workout apps is that it gives you the opportunity to create your own exercise timers. It has templates for circuit training, Tabata, custom timers and one of the best HIIT workouts. Adjust the number of sets you want to do and adjust the length of the high- and low-intensity periods. Don’t worry, the app will let you know what is the next exercise. And you can even name them, so you make it more interesting.
