Certified professional mentors guide every workout with step-by-step visual instructions with easy-to-adjust difficulty levels. You can even connect the app with your smartwatch via its Bluetooth LE Heart Rate Monitor and read instant heart rate feedback whilst exercising.
Just as its name suggests, the 7 Minute Workout app provides a no-nonsense approach with a list of essential short workouts whenever you feel like doing so (maybe when you feel guilty after savoring that delicious pizza).
Each exercise is aided with video tutorials for you to grasp the techniques better. The app features a fully automated voice-enabled user experience, that makes you focus on the rewards rather than the timer ticking away on your screen.

It tracks your food habits and consumptions and provides you with determining suggestions on what and how much should you consume a specific item. Moreover, it houses a multitude of cardio exercises and strength workouts that can be synced and accessed through several other apps and devices.
6. Simply Yoga
Simply Yoga is packed with instructional videos of various lengths that provide walkthroughs for basic yoga poses, allowing you to follow them with ease — although you might require a yoga mat and a yoga towel.
It has a pretty simple interface that suffices for a good workout, though it bugs you with in-app advertisements for you to use it for free. If you are a fan of yoga and want to keep it simple, Simply Yoga is for you.
Adidas Runtastic is a personal trainer for a runner. It tracks all kinds of running metrics: distance ran, pace per mile, calories burnt and your heart rate, provided you wear a smartwatch.
This app integrates a social media experience with leaderboards and through running group chats. Although it is free with ads, you can pay a reasonable fee to remove them.
