Everyone wants to be healthy, but that is sometimes easier said than done. Your iPhone can be used as a great companion on a fitness journey. Here are the best workout apps to check out.

Get fit in only seven minutes.

These workouts take all of seven minutes for the busy professional who wants to stay in shape!

Seven - 7 Minute Workout Training Challenge

Seven - 7 Minute Workout Training Challenge

Perigee

Seven - 7 Minute Workout Training Challenge

For anyone looking to get fit with a 7 minute workout.

Seven starts you off with three lives, kind of like a video game. Skip a day and lose a heart, but miss 3 workouts in a month and your progress resets to zero and it's game over! Work out every day for 7 months to achieve 100% and become a 7/7 champion.

Why we love it

It's a fun way to get in shape, just take just 7 minutes a day for 7 months.

CARROT Fit - 7 Minute Workout & Weight Tracker

Be prepared to laugh as you exercise and get healthy

CARROT Fit - 7 Minute Workout & Weight Tracker

Weigh-in

For those who want to get in shame and laugh at the same time.

If you need a little more motivation behind losing weight, how about a robot who will do this by judging you every step of the way?

Why we love it

If you’re looking for a slick weight tracker app with a dash of motivation, then I recommend giving CARROT Fit a try. CARROT Fit features a beautiful and simplistic interface that you will instantly recognize if you’ve used her other apps. You’ll find hilarious chubby avatars to choose from to represent yourself, amusing animations of CARROT’s punishments when you gain weight instead of lose it, easy-to-read text, and of course, CARROT’s sinister, GLaDOS-like voice as she makes commentary on your progress. If you do well, she will reward you with a bit of confetti and such, you know, to make you feel special.

Track your runs

Whether you're running for fitness or training for a marathon, keeping track of your distance and route information is key. These apps will help you do just that, thanks to the GPS in your iPhone.

Map My Run - GPS Running & Workout Tracker

Track and map every run with MapMyRun

Map My Run - GPS Running & Workout Tracker

Map My Run - GPS Running & Workout Tracker

For those who want to know every detail about their workout activity

If you love to run or walk, this app is a 'must have'. For every mile you go, you’ll get feedback and stats to help you improve your performance. At the end of your workout, it will give you a map of your workout, along with other helpful information. It syncs to your favorite wearable (including Apple Watch) to allow the most accurate information possible. Want some motivation? You can join a community of more than 40,000 runners. Share your workouts, accept challenges, climb the leader board and even win prizes.

Why we love it

Map My Run is easy to navigate and has all the features and information runners need to stay motivated and improve their workout.

Runkeeper - Track Running with GPS

Runkeeper does more than just track runs

Runkeeper - Track Running with GPS

Pick Your Goals

For those who need an app to track all of their activity and workouts, as well as weight.

As one of the App Store’s longest standing activity trackers, RunKeeper has matured quite nicely, progressively refining its appearance and functionality. Plus, its developers have teamed up with other software and hardware developers, including Pebble. Just to give you some insight, the app features various outdoor activity support, spoken action and stat updates, live tracking on a free to explore plain street map, optional goals input and progress display, as well as multiple social network integration and personal feeds. Basically, it’s an amazing fitness assistant, which is only partially helpful when trekking the more brutal back country.

Why we love it

The interface is simple and easy to understand. It also is a complete tracking app that can also track your weight, walks, cycling, workouts, and more.

Once you know that you’re going to stick with Stacked, all you have to do to unlock unlimited workouts is pay a one-time upgrade fee.
