Awesome App

You may have made a resolution this year (like every year) to get healthier and more fit. You may also have a smart phone with app capabilities. If both of these things describe you, you are in luck! I have recently discovered one of the best fitness apps available from the Apple Store, for free! If it's free, it's for me. I don't pay for apps, yo.

This is the perfect app for home workouts because you don't need much equipment, typically just a set of hand weights. It provides countless circuit workouts combining cardio and strength moves for short amounts of time totaling a 30 or 45 minute workout. Your choice! Each move has a picture description and a video you can watch to check your form and make sure you're doing it correctly. The app counts down the seconds of each move for you and tells you when to move onto the next exercise. And the best part...... You can play your own music from itunes or elsewhere while working out!

Circuit training is one of the best ways to blast calories quickly. Your heart rate stays elevated while incorporating strength moves that are very important but some people often overlook in their workouts. I used to be a cardio freak too but muscles are important.Fact. Muscles burn more calories at rest than fat does and the best way to gain muscle (duh) is through strength training!

So, check this one out if you're looking to jazz things up in your workout world. There are lots of different workouts to choose from and I think, the more you complete, the more you unlock. I worked up a good sweat for sure and that's no lie. Disclaimer, it does take way more MB than any other app I have on my iphone. You will want to be connected to wi-fi or a hard network connection when downloading.

Get sweatin'!

  1. It seems that everyone is always asking me what the best abdominal exercise workouts are to get a flatter stomach. The common belief that ab workouts will help you to lose belly fat is one of the biggest misconceptions I deal with daily as a fitness professional.


I want to hear what you have to say. Really!
