If you’ve been rinsing the best home workout apps this past year, know you’re not alone. With fluctuating lockdown rules, good at-home sweat options have never been more important.

Fortunately, what with top draw personal trainers and smart technology, getting fit at home can be just as effective as schlepping to the gym. From strength training to cardio workouts, HIIT workouts at home and low-impact sessions, there really is a home workout app out there for everyone. Hallelujah.

However, if you’re a beginner it’s best not to go in all guns blazing: ‘I see a lot of people starting a new regime, signing up to an app, doing the Monday leg and glute session and then find they can’t walk for a week,’ Anna Victoria, personal trainer and creator of the Fit Body app, told WH. Start slowly and build up – there’s no rush, trust us.

25 best home workout apps to download today

Not only do FIIT make working out at home feel like sweating in-studio, but they’ve also worked with WH to design a specific home-workout plan that requires little equipment and gets you fighting fit in 10 weeks. Sound too good to be true? Well, it certainly isn’t. FIIT x Women’s Health Sweat and Reset will help you build a stronger, leaner body, all from the (dis)comfort of your living room. Did we mention Maya Jama is their newest ambassador? Yeah, thought that would motivate you. #MakeMoreLikeMaya.

FIIT also offer breathwork classes with teacher Richie Bostock. Not heard of breathwork? It’s a practice that aims to restore balance to the stress response systems, calm agitated minds, relieve symptoms of anxiety and more through focused breathing patterns – a perfect antidote to the anxiety-inducing impact of normal life ATM, we think.
