Have you ever met a person in your life who did not want to be in shape? Some of us who feel too meek want to gain mass, while others who perceive themselves as overweight want to lose as much of it as possible. Even those who have a perfect score on the body max index (BMI) want to curate their body a bit more. And those of us who manage to get in shape want to work out to stay that way.

But naturally, getting into shape and working out is no easy task. It takes a lot of willpower, time, energy, self-control, and not to mention consistency. And most of us lack at least one if not all of these qualities.

And who can blame us, the pressures of keeping up with modern-day life, the stressors at work, and the constant struggle for financial sustenance can be so overwhelming that many of us do not get a chance to invest in ourselves, our bodies, and our health.

For this reason, we need companions and trainers to help us stay in line, offer guidance and push us toward our fitness goals. But good in-person gym trainers are not easy to afford and taking out the time to visit the gym every day to meet pre-scheduled appointments is a daunting task.

But luckily, modern life, despite its grinding routines and fast-paced living has given us several gifts as well. The biggest of which is the gift of high-speed broadband. Activities that needed to be performed in person can now easily be performed online.

Fitness is no exception. There are, literally, hundreds of fitness apps on the web that are designed to help users escape the horrific task of having to rush to the gym. And millions of us have already seen the potential of these apps, no wonder the fitness app industry is slated to grow to 14.6 Billion Dollars by 2027.

These apps are extremely convenient to use and offer increasingly advanced features which have made fitness accessible to millions of people worldwide. So, if you are looking to get into shape but have not been able to do so because of the challenges that come with hiring a trainer or frequenting the gym, here are 3 fitness apps that will help you meet your fitness goals.

But before we launch into a discussion about these apps, let me make one thing very clear, almost all of these apps operate online and require access to fast-paced internet broadband to function smoothly. So, before you go investing in these apps or even fitness equipment makes sure that you invest in a fast-paced internet connection.

And, if you live in a rural or sparsely populated area and do not have access to extremely fast-paced fiber-based broadband you can also try getting a satellite-based connection from providers like HughesNet Internet which offer speeds much faster than slug-paced DSL connections that you are probably using right now.

Now, let’s talk fitness.


Caliber is perhaps the best, and one of the most expensive, fitness apps of our times. The founders of Caliber were curating fitness training programs years before the launch of their app. So, they have quite a lot of experience with getting people into shape.

The app itself is also extremely well-developed. Premium users have access to especially one on one training sessions, completely custom nutrition plans, and even lifestyle advice.

Perhaps the most unique element of the app is its data-driven approach. From the moment users join the app they are asked, in great detail, about their fitness goals, workout habits, and a lot of other pertinent questions.

Similarly, as you go into the program the app collects data about your fitness routine and curates your experience accordingly. In other words, your training plan becomes more personalized as you go.

And of course, each user of the app has access to a personal trainer who gives users that necessary human push and guidance.

2.) FUTURE  

Unlike Caliban which offers a more guided experience, the Future personal training and fitness app gives you a lot more control over your workout schedule. For instance, instead of having the trainer chooses for you, the app lets you pick the trainer of your choice.

The most unique thing about the app is its fitness tracking feature. The app syncs to your Apple Watch and conveys data about your workout routine, your heart rate, and even your calorie burn rate to your trainer so that they can have an in-depth idea about your overall progress.

And if you do not own an Apple watch the app will send one to you on loan for the duration of the program, how empathetic of them, right?

Lastly, the app allows you to inform your instructors about your workout limitations like injuries or work schedules. The fitness coach will take these limitations into account while designing your workout experience.


While the other two apps on the list are on the pricier end of the spectrum, Nike Fitness Club is completely free to use. And no, the app is not a mere marketing stunt, it is extremely useful and is honestly designed to help you meet your fitness goals.

Off course being free the app does not include a lot of features that the other two apps offer. So, there is no in-person training, no live streaming, and no access to custom training plans.

But what the app does offer is unlimited and again completely free access to over a hundred audio and video fitness demos of all shapes and sizes.

Each of these demos is about 6 weeks long, on average, with a daily workout bracket of about 25 to 40 minutes.

The app, like the other two, also quizzes users about their fitness goals right at the beginning and suggests demos based on their unique workout needs. So that you do not have to waste time scrolling through the vast variety of content in the app to pick the right demonstration video.


There is nothing more important to an individual than their health or at least nothing should be more important to an individual than their health. But given our strict routine and desk jobs, taking out time to keep ourselves in shape is a pretty difficult task.

Luckily, fitness apps like the ones mentioned above have made working out more accessible to Millions of users worldwide.

Meaning, you have one less excuse to tell yourself when you decide to skip your daily workout.
