Keeping fit is important for your well-being, and not just for your physical health. There is proof that feeling good about your body helps you feel good in the mind, so you will perform to your abilities much more impressively if you are fit and healthy. It’s for this reason that many employers now offer their workforce the use of gym equipment; it makes sense as healthy and fit people will work harder and better, so the investment in the gym equipment is also an investment in the workforce.
The current era is one in which we use the internet and our hand held and desk based devices in many varied ways, not least in accessing apps for many reasons. In fact, the app has been the tech revolution of the past ten years, and has gone from strength to strength. Fitness apps are all the rage at the moment, so we took a look at a few of the best. Before we talk about them, bear in mind also that many more people than ever before are installing home gym equipment, and it is nowhere near as expensive as you may believe.
Great Workout Apps
Strava is one of the most impressive fitness apps, and is used to track your running and cycling exercise routines. It’s easy to use and helps you see how you are performing – and improving – against a network of other people. Intervals is a great one for planning a work out, so goes hand in hand with installing your home gym. We recommend you check it out if you are looking to put a chin up bar in your gym, as they will play a great part in your routine. These simple and versatile devices are great for toning your muscles and increasing your upper body strength, and they are far from expensive.
Other apps include those for advising on exercise routines and dietary issues, while there are also many that offer tracking abilities for a wide variety of different sports. Many of these apps are free to download, and will be used by keep fit fans readily and often.

Keep it Simple
If you want a home gym, then don’t think you can’t afford one. Keep it simple with items such as pull up bars and a simple, basic exercise machine, and you have the basis of a gym that can be used by all the family, with very little expense involved. Make sure you have enough room for the equipment to be used effectively – many people are choosing to put gym equipment outdoors as this gives plenty of available space – and you will soon have the benefit of a home gym that you can use when you want, without having to leave your home.
