No matter what kind of workout app you prefer, you can find tons of great options, from the ones that keep you motivated to those that help you get started. It is a bit overwhelming to pick one out of so many options. Exercise apps are a great way to start exercising, gain confidence, and make the most of your workouts. This list was created so you can spend less time deciding on apps and more time trying them out. We’ve rounded up some of our favorites.


In addition to its workout guide and fitness tracker, Jefit offers a range of options: You can choose exercises that suit a wide range of machines and equipment, you can customize your workout plan and tracker, and you can chat with others to get tips. Jefit’s Elite Monthly plan gets rid of the ads found on the free version and allows you to access more customized training analytics, weekly progress reports, and additional workouts that are accompanied by HD videos.

If you prefer a longer-term commitment, you can get full access to all features with the Elite Yearly Plan.

In the app, advanced climbers can also choose from a variety of customized training plans.

Strong’s huge workout library offers plenty of workout options for everyone.


The Future program starts with a match between you and a trainer whose fitness philosophy matches yours.

You are given a personalized program based on your needs and gym access. Your coach will send you a new list of exercises each week using the Apple Watch you receive from Future so that you can track your progress and activity week by week. The app is available only to iOS users though.


A Freelancetics personal trainer creates a custom program for you based upon your goals, fitness history, and the resources you have. No matter what type of home gym set up or bodyweight workout you prefer; whether strength training is preferable to cardio; or whether you have time only in the mornings, the trainers will customize a plan for you. You can communicate with your coach when you start your plan to let them know how it’s going. Perhaps it’s too challenging for you right away, or perhaps you’d like them to add to the intensity.
