The Covid-19 pandemic has created an overwhelming need for home workout apps. People stuck in quarantine, fitness buffs or not, need an outlet so they don’t go insane.
As a result, companies like Peleton, who started the new year facing blowback for their corny holiday ad, have skyrocketed in membership as a result of gyms closing nationwide. In this article, we’ve listed our top three home workout apps to keep you sane during these tumultuous times.
Nike Training Club
In light of the coronavirus epidemic, Nike has made its training club available to anyone with a smartphone for free. This means class workouts, training programs, and tips on nutrition are free to members for the extent of the crisis. If you have an apple watch, you can connect the app to your watch to measure your heart rate, calories, and recovery and log the information automatically.
Nike’s Training Club made the top of our list because of the free premium deal. With it, NTC offers bodyweight workouts, yoga classes, HIT workouts, as well as full equipment routines. Nike advertises that its entire program has been designed from the ground up by experts, and the user experience shows.
To keep you motivated, Nike awards trophies for milestones like your total logged workouts, frequency, weekly, and monthly streaks. Whether you need a grueling 30 minute workout at home or just easy workout routines without equipment, NTC has you covered for free.
Peleton launched in 2013 after the help of a Kickstarter campaign and has cashed in on the recent demand for home workout apps. The app now offers thousands of classes available in over 10 pretty broad categories.
Peloton offers classes with its treadmill and exercise bike product. There are other classes such as yoga, meditation, upper and lower body workouts, HIT workouts, stretching, and even dance lessons available on demand. Digital memberships for the app cost $12.99 per month, and you can watch classes on your phone, computer, apple tv, fire tv, and more.
The app also helps you keep track of your workouts, making it easy to track your progress. Plus, the instructors are energetic and knowledgable, helping you to finish every workout strong. Click here to check out their site.
As you can probably guess from their name, Corepower focuses on yoga and meditational videos. They have a collection of over three hundred different classes ranging from beginner’s yoga, intermediate sculpting, and meditation sessions. The leaders of these classes come from across the country, bringing yoga experiences from across the country into your living room.
CorePower’s app features with different levels of yoga workouts to do at home, so you have a clear route to make progress. If you’re not ready to commit, CorePower has a couple of free classes you can try out before making any decisions.
We had two reasons to include CorePower Yoga last. First, it’s the priciest option at $19.99 monthly rate and an annual option priced at $199.99. Second, Nike Training Club and Peleton help you track your workouts, while CoreYoga is more of like a YouTube for everything yoga: stretching, sculpting, power––you name it.
