Whether you want to lose weight, tone muscle, improve flexibility, or do all of the above, Sworkit has a workout to help you reach your goals. The app offers more than 400 unique workouts — think yoga for runners — and over 800 exercises to get you moving. With over 26,000 ratings in the App Store, Sworkit gets 4.7 out of 5 stars and very favorable reviews.
“I am just not a gym person, so I have tried numerous fitness apps and this is hands down my absolute favorite and the one I use exclusively these days.” says one reviewer in the App Store. “They provide highly customizable workouts. … The trainer does each exercise with you, and there’s an indicator for how much longer you have to that one particular exercise. Prior to starting the next exercise, there’s a demo and a brief interval allowing you to get in proper position. … I can’t even think of anything I would’ve done differently if I had designed this app myself, and that’s saying something.”
Why We Like Sworkit
Sworkit offers something for all fitness levels from beginners to serious athletes and even has a program for kids, which is free. You can customize workouts based on your fitness goals and how much time you have — choose the type of workout (strength, cardio, yoga, or stretching), your fitness goals (to tone, strengthen, or burn calories), and how long you’ve got to exercise, and Sworkit delivers a personalized workout. In addition, they offer sets of classes for monthly challenges.
While you have to pay a monthly subscription, the fee seems reasonable since they provide access to certified trainers to answer your fitness and nutrition questions and one-on-one coaching.
