1. Pokémon Go
Pokémon Go is sweeping the nation and the world. If you’re still in the dark about the premise, it’s simple – Pokémon creatures are out in the real world and it’s your job to capture them. This means you have to go outside in your neighborhood or city, pull out your smartphone, and find them and capture them. You might think this is just child’s play or some glamorized video game, but it can be a true fitness app. Get in on the Pokémon craze and lose those extra pounds while you’re having oodles of fun. https://twitter.com/CaitlinVanasse/status/752354302413332480/photo/1?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw Pokémon Go is available free for Android users (and iOS users in the US for now).
2. Zombies, Run!
If capturing little creatures isn’t your thing, then maybe running from zombies is. Zombies, Run! is an audio narrative which is immersive and full of drama. You have missions to complete while running away from the threat of zombies. The story you hear while working out is compelling to say the least. Get your heart racing with this fitness app. It’s free for the first four games and is available for iOS and Android.
3. 7 Minute Superhero Workout
7 Minute Superhero workout trains you to be a superhero! That’s right. The premise is you’re a pilot for AEGIS One battlesuit and your task is to defend Earth from aliens.

This is a great app to use at home and only requires your body weight for resistance. 7 Minute Superhero Workout is a paid app for iOS and Android.
4. The Walk
Maybe running, jogging or doing jumping jacks is something you’re not ready to do yet. You just want to get moving and nothing more. The Walk is the app for you. This gamification app uses the captivating story of a bomb exploding in your area and you’ve been given a package that can help save the world. The catch? To stay alive you need to walk. This is a great app to get you motivated and walking the recommended 10,000 steps you need to fulfill every day.
