In our series on our favorite health and fitness apps, we decided to tackle our favorite workout apps.

Jefit

Jefit
Free
Jefit is hardcore, but that’s what we like about it. This phone and computer-based platform offers over 2,000 workout routines or the ability to create your own. What makes this app special is that you can log all your workouts and receive a data report on your results. Between the 4+ million community, the ability to connect with friends and the workout logging process, this app is great for accountability and helping you stay on task. We recommend this for people who are looking for a free accountability workout app. 

Sworkit

Sworkit
Free

This Shark Tank favorite offers easy-to-do workout routines for people who need a little boost and don’t like going to the gym. You can choose anywhere from 5 to 60-minute workouts and watch instructional videos from real trainers. Videos are geared toward everyone from rookies to trainers. Another plus is the friendly user interface. Sworkit is not as robust as Jefit, but we recommend it for people who don’t have a gym membership.

Nike + Training Club

Nike+ Training Club
Free

This sleek app offers over 100 workouts–for all levels of ability–from Nike trainers and athletes, including Serena Williams and Kevin Hart. Like most workout apps, you can log your activity, and if you already use Nike+ Run Club, you can transfer your runs to Training Club. The videos are easy to follow and the audio is very clear. We recommend this app for people who enjoy the quality of Nike’s products and look.

Fitocracy

Fitocracy
Free

What makes Fitocracy different from the other apps is that it offers access to specific coaches and nutrition plans. Though the basic version of this app is free (some workouts and workout logging ability), you will have to pay anywhere from $7 to $62 dollars a week to have access to specific coaches and customized nutritional plans. However, you will receive personalized guidance and motivation from your coaches. We recommend this app for people who want a trainer at the gym but don’t want the high price tag.
