Let’s Get Physical! Apps to keep you Healthy at Home


Being cooped up at home is not ideal for fitness. Without our typical day-to-day structure, it can be all too easy to slide into lethargy, boredom-eating, and depression. Exercise is one of the most effective ways to boost not only your physical strength, but your mental health too. As the old saying goes, fit body, fit mind. With the help of these apps, you get fit without leaving the house or spending a cent.

Down Dog Yoga

This is one of the most popular yoga apps around. Whether you’re a yoga-disciple or yet to be converted, Down Dog will make it easy for you. There are several levels and customizable features to suit your needs, with quality videos and music to help you get in the mood.

Fabulous: Self Care

This gorgeously illustrated app is here to inspire you to build healthier habits. Fabulous is about a lot more than exercise: it’s all about being a better you. It’ll motivate you to transform your lifestyle, eat healthier, sleep better and lose weight. Just think of it as a life-coach in your pocket.

Nike Training Club

Nike’s Tagline is ‘Just Do It’ , and when you have an app like this for free, it’s hard to find a reason not to. Nike’s generous app has a number of personal trainers to follow, several plans to choose from, and nutritional advice.


FitOn  is upbeat, fun and free, and packs a lot in. You’ll find all kinds of exercises, including yoga and dance. You can personalize your plans to suit your targets, and it even has a host of celebrity trainers.


Eating right is just as important as exercise, and luckily there are countless apps to help with that. Our pick is YAZIO.  It tracks the amount of calories you consume, and how many you’re burning. It’ll also give your incredible diet plans and recipe ideas, whether you want to build muscle or lose weight.

There’s tons of great apps to choose from, and no excuses not to start! Hopefully, we’ll all be free to enjoy the beaches before summer ends. Let’s use our time at home to get our best beach bod yet!
