I’ve been using fitness apps for years now.

Ever since I canceled my gym membership more than 6 years ago, I have been relying on fitness apps to help me power through workouts and get a sweat in everyday.

And yes, I still do take the occasional hot yoga class or barre class with a friend when the opportunity presents itself but for the most part, I workout at home (or on the go) with my workout DVDs or some of these apps.

My Favorite Fitness Apps

Of course, everyone loves their gym classes but not everyone has the time or money to get to the gym. It feels like gym memberships just keep getting more and more expensive, but what can you do?

Working out does not need to or have to be expensive. Trying to get in shape or living a healthier life shouldn’t break the bank. <– This is one of the main reasons that most people don’t even start a workout program to begin with. Money and time are both big factors.

So here are some great alternatives to plunking down hundreds of dollars on a gym membership or just a way for you to get a good sweat when you don’t have time to hit the gym or would rather workout at home… like me.
