In 30 seconds…

If you are trying to be more physically active, up your daily steps, or burn more calories, fitness apps can help you on your way. We have trawled through fitness apps galore to bring you the best based on usability, design, user ratings, update frequency, and their capacity to get you moving.

Exercise is the miracle cure we have all been waiting for. It is free, easy to start, has few side effects when done properly, and does not need a prescription. If exercise were a drug, it would be the most cost-effective medicine of all time.

Being physically active has an overwhelming number of attached benefits, such as helping you maintain a healthy weight, strengthening your heart, improving lung function, and reducing your risk for coronary heart disease. Furthermore, physical activity lowers your risk of depression, cognitive decline, diabetes, and cancer.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services guidelines for physical activity recommend that for significant health benefits from exercise, you should take part in at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity each week, although some advantages can be seen from as little as 60 minutes per week.

Physical activity comes in many forms, from high-intensity running to leisure cycling and yoga stretches. Here are Medical News Today‘s top 10 fitness app selections to make hitting those recommended physical activity targets fun.

Fitness apps also let you view workouts and do them whenever or wherever you want. In addition to convenience and motivational benefits, fitness apps are more affordable than joining a gym or hiring a personal trainer.
