Finding a fitness plan that works for you isn't always easy. Sometimes, having a gym membership, or attending Barre classes just doesn't mesh for your lifestyle.And while there are plenty of different approaches, we pulled together five of the best free fitness apps -- so you can decide how you want to define your fitness lifestyle.

Top 5 Fitness Apps 

Apicha CHC

1. My Fitness Pal

My Fitness Pal is a great app to help you track your diet and workouts. If you have a fitness goal in mind, such as weight loss, this app will calculate the optimal amount of calories you should be consuming each day to complete that goal. Each time you enter a food you eat, the app will break down nutrition information, and even let you know when you've consumed too much sodium, fat, or sugar. Additionally, by entering your workouts (whether it's running, walking, or going up and down the subway stairs), the app also incorporates how many calories you've burned into each day. (Photo Source: MyFitnessPal)

 


Apicha CHC2. 30-Day Fitness Challenge Pro

If you're looking for a short-term fitness plan, this app might work for you. The 30-Day Fitness Challenge Pro offers a range of 7-minute, daily workouts for you to choose from. The app has different difficulty levels and will show you how to complete certain exercises, so if you're a beginner, you won't be totally lost. In addition to offering complete workouts, the app also allows you to track your food and nutrition. (Photo Source: 30-Day Fitness Challenge Pro)


Apicha CHC3. Skimble Workout Trainer

For folks who prefer direction from a trainer, this app might be a good option. Skimble Workout Trainer offers different workouts that are each accompanied by a trainer directing you what to do (these are pre-recorded, not live!). This app allows you to complete workouts wherever, customize training programs, and offer performance analysis. (Photo Source: Skimble Workout Trainer)

Apicha CHC5. Johnson & Johnson 7 Minute Workout

If you're constantly on the go and short on time, this app can help you get your daily workout in. With workouts ranging from seven to thirty-two minutes, you can decide what you feel like doing. Additionally, you can customize workouts to target specific muscle groups, or accomplish certain goals you have in mind. If you need an extra push or need to be held accountable, the app also offers workout and inactivity reminders. (Photo Source: Johnson & Johnson 7 Minute Workout)
