8 Apps for Sports at Home

We found applications that will help to achieve a good figure without leaving home.

7 Minute Workout

If the treadmill is deadlocked, this is no reason to wait for the appearance of excess weight. Even if you give simple exercises a few minutes a day, it will give a more noticeable result than idleness. Gather yourself together and put laziness out the door will help enterprising application Seven. Running it, you will hear a whistle, and you will have nothing left but for seven minutes to repeat the movements depicted in the pictures.

  • Any exercise can be skipped, immediately moving to the very last.
  • Some exercises are not described in great detail.

MilePost

The motivating application for latent joggers every morning unsuccessfully trying to unstick yourself from the couch and get out of the closet running shoes. In fact, MilePost does not offer revolutionary solutions — all its functionality is daily throwing on the screen push-notifications with inspiring quotes on the topic of running and sports in General. Those who manage to motivate themselves to run, in this case it is best to rely on Nike+ Running, RunKeeper or Zombies, Run!.

Pluses

Fitness Intervals

The perfect app for the disorganized and forgetful people who a couple of seconds after the start of charging accidentally switch to sleep or watching TV series. Not to forget, when you need to take the following approach push-ups, and when to rest, you need to start charging Fitness Intervals. With this application, you can keep track of the number of approaches and time spent on exercises, and even set a sound timer with the exact number of approaches, periods of exercise and rest.

  • For those who regularly forget to drink, notifications are provided.

Minuses

Cody

The main disappointment of the beginners is that none of the others will not see what you’re doing until your costume in public will not burst under the pressure of the muscles. Fortunately, there are specialized social networks for such cases. For example, in Cody you can post photos of your sports feats and sufferings without a twinge of conscience and change statuses with the speed of a minute hand. In addition, here you can subscribe to well-known coaches and other masters of sports to always be aware of sports life hacking.

  • Quite confusing to navigate.

Teemo

It is much easier to start doing sports than to continue. In order not to fall on the first squat, you can try to deceive yourself with the application Teemo, cleverly disguised as a fun game. Its idea is quite simple: choosing a place of action (Wild West, jungle, Everest, and so on), you need, as in a normal Board game, move along a given route, performing parallel strength exercises.

  • To get access to all training sessions and videos in high resolution, you will have to pay for a PRO account.
  • Many athletes in the video do not look very sporty and attractive. In the same Nike Training Club to perform exercises you are taught by real superhumans with perfect bodies.
