We all said we’d do it this year, and 2020 gave us quite a good excuse to devote our time to exercise and workouts, but many of us might have missed the cue, leaving us hungry for a summer body. Even though gyms and sports centres are now open, training at home might be the safer option for a good portion of people trying to flatten the curve and their bellies.
Why not workout home? There’s no need for a personal trainer in your home, no need to shower at the gym and definitely no need to pay a tonne of money. All you need is a functioning smartphone; Apple or Android and the motivation to shed a few pounds.
Take a look at these three totally free workout apps that work on both Apple and Android devices.
Skimble’s Workout Trainer is available on both Apple and Android devices and offers exercises that can be tailored to beginner and expert levels; delivering routines that fit any level of fitness and intensity.
Starting with Skimble, require a few questions answers before training can be set. These questions will help program a fitness scheme that delivers exactly what you’re looking for within your comfort zone. Don’t worry there will be an added push that challenges you that little bit.
