Want to workout but don’t know where to begin? The Sworkit app has you covered. It’s an app that gives you randomized training workouts based on which parts of the body you want to focus on. The workouts are timed from five to 60 minute sessions, so you can’t use the excuse that you don’t have time to workout. It’s available for Androids, iPhones and iPads, and Web.
Sworkit’s creator, Ryan Hanna, told us, “The real purpose of Sworkit and what sets it apart is the attention to simplicity. When the majority of people set out to exercise, they don’t necessarily know where to start and then there are some people who will talk themselves out of ever starting in the first place.”
“Sworkit only asks two questions: How long do you have to workout? Where do you want to feel it?” said Hanna.
The app gives you choices like Full Body, Core Strength, Lower Body, and a random Anything Goes workout. There’s also a couple of yoga sequences. From there, press start and follow the instructions. Exercises are relatively simple, like Kneeling Hip Flexors, Squats, Forward Lunges, and Side Stretches. Each exercise is timed, moving on to the next one so you don’t get burned out or bored. Pictures on the screen show you how to do each exercise, and none require the use of any equipment.
The free version works great, making you stay on your toes to keep up with the quick pace. For 99 cents, upgrade to Sworkit Pro and get verbal instruction for each exercise, how-to videos, and progress tracking.
In today’s fast-paced world, a workout tool like Sworkit is a must. Use it when you can’t get to the gym, during your lunch break, or while traveling. Don’t neglect a workout because you don’t know which exercises to do or think you’re too busy. Anyone can do the exercises in Sworkit – no personal trainer, huge amount of time, or costly equipment required.
