5 Best Workout Apps for At Home Workout | FITS®

January 24, 2020

If you’ve set a 2020 intention to exercise more, one of the best ways to achieve your goal is to make your fitness as convenient and accessible as possible. Especially important for people who struggle to find time to get to the gym on a regular basis, workout streaming apps bring the fitness studio right into your living room.

However, with so many different services on the market, it can be difficult to narrow down the best choice for you. Here’s a little more detail on our top five choices:

Daily Burn

Ideal for someone who enjoys the community of an in-person exercise class, Daily Burn offers a brand-new live workout every morning at 9:00 a.m. ET. However, if you can’t make the live workout, you have access to it for a full 24 hours (or forever, if you choose a premium plan). Plus, since Daily Burn has been around since 2007, they have an extensive workout library of other classes to suit every fitness style and level — from yoga, to kickboxing, to high-intensity interval training (HIIT). You can also purchase memberships specific for yoga, HIIT and running. Learn more here.


If you’ve ever wished you had a fitness coach in your ear during your long runs, Aaptiv is the perfect app for you. This audio-only service allows you to take a fitness coach with you for cardio workouts, including running, cycling or ellipticals. There are also audio-coached strength training and yoga workout classes to choose from, with new ones being added every week. You won’t be entirely without visuals though — there are workout guides to help you figure out specific moves. Learn more here.


Barre classes became extremely popular in the last half of the decade, but studio classes come with a high price tag and are often jam-packed. Enter: Barre3. With more than 500 online classes to choose from and a new class added every week, you can flow and tuck to your heart’s desire. Learn more here.

Beachbody on Demand

Known for popular programs like P90X and the 21-Day Fix, this streaming service boasts more than 1,100 available workouts of all different types. With classes led by big fitness names like Shaun T and Tony Horton, you’re guaranteed to get a good workout. Learn more here.

Obé Fitness

Similar to Daily Burn, Obé Fitness offers up to 100 live classes per week in addition to on-demand classes, so you get the benefits of a community from the convenience of your home. Plus, every workout is under 30 minutes, so you can easily fit it into your busy schedule. Learn more here.

Don’t let access to a gym be the reason you don’t meet your fitness goals this year. In addition to streaming into your living room, all of these apps can also join you on the go. Let’s make 2020 your strongest year yet.
