No gym membership required

Work out at home with these great training apps.

Getting fit doesn’t have to cause your bank balance to shed as much weight as you are hoping to. Thanks to apps it’s possible to forgo a traditional – and costly – gym membership without missing out on any of the fitness benefits.

As well as letting you workout in the comfort of your own home, these apps – which all offer tailored exercise plans – have Apple TV support (along with iPhone and iPad friendly versions), so you can do your exercises in front of the biggest screen in your house.

Asana Rebel is like having a personal trainer in your pocket.

Those introductory gym sessions where they judge your current fitness levels before giving you a bland, carbon-copy exercise plan sometimes feel both embarrassing and underwhelming. Whether your primary objective is improving your fitness or losing weight, Asana Rebel makes things more personal – curating workouts and exercises to your individual abilities and goals.

Combining yoga-inspired fitness regimes with HIIT sessions, Asana’s video guides help lead you through each session – from improving your core power to increasing your energy levels. And because it’s important to see the effects of your effort, the app tracks your progress as you go.

No equipment needed

Thinking of quitting? Streaks will keep your fitness goals on track.

One of the main draws of the gym is the access to the sort of equipment you’re unable to squeeze into your home. But you can hit all of your fitness goals without any specialist equipment at all. Bodyweight-based exercises let you work with what you’ve got, and Streaks Workout is filled with them.

It lets you create your own workout combinations to pair bicycle crunches with squats, or tricep dips with extended planks. To keep you motivated, you’re challenged with building a streak of consecutive days of activity. The app then gives you reports and breakdowns on your success – it’ll make you strive for a new streak PB and keep you coming back day after day.
