Our iGnite leaders are sharing their favorite fitness apps to help you with strength training, run training, HIIT workouts, yoga, stretching and more! Since we always have our phone with us, a customized workout can be just a few clicks away. These apps are great to use when you are traveling or when you may only have 10-15 minutes to squeeze in a quick workout. Here are our Top 5 Favorites:
Sworkit – Your own personal trainer! Sworkit provides you with personalized video workouts by real trainers. Videos of each move and audio coaching lead you through each session. You can work out to pre-made routines or design your own.
The app includes choices from strength, cardio, yoga or stretching with a duration anywhere from 5 to 60 minutes. No equipment required.
Interval Timer – This app helps you keep track of your work and rest periods during workouts. We use it in iGnite classes to keep track of tabatas (ex: 40 seconds of squats/15 seconds of rest) or any other type of HIIT workout.
Interval timer can be customized to any length and has different beeping noises for work and rest. It is the perfect workout companion.
Running for Weight Loss – This app has unique interval plans of running, walking and sprint intervals for maximum calorie burning. You can choose from different training programs with levels of difficulty from beginner to advanced.
You can also use the app to train for a 5K, 10K or whatever your goal may be. It tells you detailed statistics such as distance, pace and calories burned throughout and at the end of the workout.
Nike+ Training Club – Get expert guidance from Nike master trainers. Choose the amount of visual guidance you get in every workout, and use the audio cues to take your eyes off the screen. This app has over 100 strength, endurance or mobility-focused workouts designed by Nike athletes and trainers. You can enter and record other activities you do, like running, tennis, etc. and keep track of your fitness life.
