If you are an outdoor person, Strava might just be the perfect app for you. From a Swedish word that translates to “strive,” this app is for cyclists, runners, and swimmers. Strava allows competition by recording the distance, speed, routes, and pace of its users, and then comparing how fast the same routes are taken.
From the word itself, this app designs workout programs that only last seven minutes a day, with duration of seven continuous months. This app is most user-friendly to those who have no gym membership as it offers routines that use only a chair, a wall, and your body weight—ideal to be performed at home, in your office, hotel, or basically anywhere.
With more than 100 yoga classes, Daily Yoga is among the top picks in meditation-related apps. The yoga sessions are body part-specific, which means that it focuses on a certain part of your body that you want to work on the most. It also has playlists to guarantee that your Zen mode is on.
There’s no denying this: one factor that makes a good workout is the choice of music. Aaptiv is an audio-only app that pairs its instructions from top-level fitness trainers to the songs you enjoy listening to. Aaptiv banks on its high beats-per-minute sound system that provides a studio-setting workout experience.
*All applications on the list have their premium and free version in the app store.
