4 Best Fitness Apps so You Can Exercise at Home

We’ve rounded up the 4 best fitness apps to keep your waistlines from getting larger as the weather gets cooler. You don’t even have to leave the house!

For much of the Northern Hemisphere, winter is coming. Cold weather, snowy days and having to wear multiple layers of clothes make most people happy to stay inside.

But, for many of us, this can mean losing the motivation to keep exercising. Sure, it’s easy to put your sneakers on and take a run outside when the weather’s warm. Or, get on the bike and take an hour bike ride during your lunch break.

Now that the weather is getting colder, though, it’s becoming harder and harder to stick to your New Year’s resolutions.

And it’s not like the gym is any better. Having to drive far away early in the morning to beat rush hour just to work out isn’t any more fun than going to the gym after work when everyone else is doing the same.

Instead of throwing in the towel and waiting until next year to make new resolutions, keep your exercise routine going strong. There’s no need to venture outside in the cold just to get your heart rate up.

With your SURE Universal, you can even watch your favorite movie while exercising and control your air conditioner if you really start to work up a sweat!

Let’s look at the four best fitness apps that you can use from the comfort of your home.

1. Instant Heart Rate Monitor

Instant Heart Rate Monitor

The Instant Heart Rate Monitor is considered the most accurate heart rate monitor app for Android.

It’s important to monitor your heart rate when you work out. This helps you to exercise safely and optimize your exercise routine so you can stay in your target heart rate zone.

To use it, place the tip of your index finger over your phone’s camera (it works best if your camera has a flash) and in a few seconds, your heart rate will appear.

You can monitor your resting heart rate and see how fit you are. In general, the slower your resting heart rate is, the healthier you are overall.

This app is free to use for Android.

2. 7 Minute Workout

7 Minute Workout

If you’re a busy person, then this app is for you. Whether you’re a mom, full-time worker or student, if you have seven minutes to spare, you can exercise.

7 Minute Workout is also great for people new to exercising. For many people, going to a gym or having to exercise for a whole hour is intimidating. They may feel like failures even before they start.

But, with this app, you don’t have to feel like that anymore. In only seven minutes, the app shows you all the steps to complete a basic exercise routine that can help with weight loss and strengthen muscles.

This app is No. 1 in 19 countries and rated top 5 overall in health apps. Get 7 Minute Workout for free on Android.

3. Google Fit

For a no-fuss fitness app, Google Fit is just for you. Once you install the app, your phone will track your movements.

You’ll receive insights and see real-time stats of your walking, runs or bike rides. If you have a treadmill in the house, you can use Google Fit to log your run.

Google Fit also has a web version where you can track your weekly fitness goals and see if you are accomplishing them.

4. MyFitnessPal


With your exercise in check, you need to also make sure you are eating healthier too. With MyFitnessPal, you won’t have a problem with knowing what and how much you are eating.

MyFitnessPal is a weight loss app that has over 6 million foods in their database. It’s a calorie counter and tracker. You can track entire meals and not just food items. It’s easy to use and only takes 5 minutes out of your day.

Using this app can really help you lose weight. According to MyFitnessPal, up to 88% of users lose weight after seven days of tracking.

Exercise While Watching TV

What’s better than having your trusty SURE Universal Remote and your best fitness app with you?

Unlike at many gyms where you have to watch what everyone else is watching, at home, you can exercise and watch your favorite movie or TV show in style. It’s a definite win-win in our books.

Now it’s your turn – how do you manage to get your workout done when it’s too cold to exercise outside?
