If youâ??re anything like the majority of Americans, you barely have time to blink at the end of each day- much less find time to go to the gym. But if your fitness is important to you (and it should be), then you have to find a way to fit it into your busy schedule. These three ISO apps can help you reach your fitness goals without traveling to the gym.
Bonus: Theyâ??re also much cheaper!
Fitness Buddy is one of the best all-around strength exercise apps. The app costs just 99 cents, and it offers a comprehensive exercise plan that you can follow to see visible results.
The app features 1,700 exercises with 1,000 photos and videos. You can choose to exercise by muscle group, or choose one of the 45 full-length workouts. You can also listen to music while you complete the exercises.
Fitness Buddy is not only a home personal trainer, but it can also work with gym equipment as well. Many times fitness enthusiasts get stuck at the gym repeating the same set of exercises, which can reduce workout effectiveness over time. Fitness Buddy keeps things fresh by continually offering new choices.
Each exercise shows the moves with photos or with a video so you can make sure you are doing them right. The app provides an area to input your body weight, exercise weights, and how many reps you did of each exercise. The app will then keep track of your progress and blood pressure.
Fitness Builder is expensive, but it offers the most. The app contains over 200 exercise plans. The app uses smart programming to determine which exercise plans will work best with your current fitness level. The app also has photos and video of all exercises to check your form. The app also allows several different exercise tracking systems and a variety of calculations. You can even take the app a step further and pay $4.99 per month to obtain even more content.
Gorilla Workout is just 99 cents, but the app has it all. The app includes over 175 workouts with over 40 exercise moves. The app includes video and text descriptions of all workouts so you can make sure youâ??re doing it right.
The app also includes 4 different difficulty levels so you can keep using the app once you start improving. All Gorilla Workouts are based on circuit training, which makes them fun and easy to use. You can also choose between body-weight workouts or signature workouts, such as the option to try for 100 pushups in a single session.
If you are going to choose a virtual trainer for your ISO device, keep these tips in mind:
- Make sure the app has videos and photos of each exercise to reduce injuries.
- If you like music, try to choose an app that will allow you to listen to your favorite tunes
- Look for audio cues that will help you know how many reps to do and when to quit
- Varied workout plans
If you keep these tips in mind, youâ??re sure to find an app that will provide lasting benefit.
