Who knew my friends were such exercise buffs? Here, I thought all they did was 12 Ounce Curls. I got so many good ideas for workout apps, I’m running another series. It’s the only running I do!
Two people mentioned the Peloton App – no expensive bike required. The app covers indoor cycling, running, walking, bootcamp, and outdoor exercises. First 30 days for free, $12.99 per month after that. Along those same lines, SoulCycle has an app that doesn’t require an indoor bike.
Strava got multiple votes in the poll. An app “designed for athlete by athletes” is probably not marketed to me, but if you need competition and data to level up your running and cycling, check it out.
According to the Village People, its fun to stay at the YYYYYYY M C A! But you can get buff without staying overnight. YMCA videos range from Barre to boxing targeting ages from kids to older adults. Young man, young man, there’s no need to feel down! Young man, young man, get yourself off the ground! Or, get on the ground if you are doing Yoga.
FitON promises free workouts in a variety of genres with celebrity trainers. You had me at celebrity. And then lost me at the home page picture of a couple kissing while doing planks. Anyway, it’s well reviewed and suggested by a friend whose fitness I envy, so check it out.
And last, the never-disappointing John Cook from Austin, Texas reminded me why we are friends by suggesting a one-word workout: Tequila. Thanks, John, and everyone else who participated in the poll.
Stay tuned next week for why you DON’T want to use any of these apps. Longevity. The enemy of your financial plan.
