    Do Fitness Apps Really Work? 

    Do Fitness Apps Work?

    It’s been ingrained into us all that we must workout no less than 5 days a week for about an hour each workout. But what most fitness apps have in common is that they are designed to be short bursts of fitness. So do they really work? 

    The Pros Of Fitness Apps 

    Time is tight making it tough to get to the gym. This makes working out at home a convenient alternative. Since app workouts can be as few as 5, 10, or 15 minutes you can work out before you shower in the morning, after work, or anytime you have a few spare minutes. With a guided instructor you are more motivated than going it alone. Many apps also provide reminders or are linked with electronic fitness tools designed for whole-body health.  

    The Cons Of Fitness Apps 

    Like many workout regimens, most of us jump all-in and then fizzle out within the first few months. This isn’t just because we get busy, but as with workout videos, the fun and excitement of your new workout can quickly grow old. One way to combat this is to download several apps with different types of workout routines so that you can mix things up. 

    There isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution to staying motivated to work out. For many, variety is key—with apps being used when traveling and on days you didn’t make it to the gym.
