According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of USAphysical activity is important because it can help people keep their ability to think, learn, and make good judgments strong as they age.
In addition, thanks to the regular practice of exercise, you can reduce the risk of conditions such as depression and anxiety. A person who engages in physical activity on a regular basis sleeps better and can develop better self-esteem. However, an inconvenient situation that prevents the initiation of a healthy routine it’s time management for it.
Thanks to the possibility of teleworking, allocating time between work, exercise hours and daily chores at home can be made easier if tools are available that not only remind users that they have a schedule to meet, but also to generate a sense of achievement that motivates you to continue with the exercise.
In this list you can find three apps that can help motivate people to start an exercise routine to improve their fitness.
Nike Training Club
The sports application designed by the sports brand American offers a number of free routines that are specifically directed to each user depending on their current rhythm of training. The less fit the person is, the easier the workouts will be but gradually increase in difficulty.
The platform’s routines not only indicate what type of exercises and how long each one takes, but also shows videos of how they should be done correctly to avoid injuries and also so that users have a reference on how the exercises are performed. training.
Also available are a number of long-term programs (from one week to one year) for those who wish to follow a stricter regimen or want to set a goal to meet within a certain period.
For beginner users who do not have basic equipment to exercise, this will not be a limitation, since the sports application does not propose exercises that require special equipment unless the user indicates it. The training can be focused on certain areas of the body (abdominals, arms and legs) or focus on a particular aspect (endurance, mobility, strength and yoga)
Adidas Training: Workout HIIT
The German-based sports brand also developed an app focused on the training from home, but also recommends complementing it with outdoor exercise routines through an additional app ‘Adidas Running’ aimed especially at the public interested in cardio exercises.
Upon logging into the Training app, the user will be asked a series of questions to determine their physical ability and also what or what are their objectives; These can be losing weight, gaining muscle, being in shape or improving health. However, unlike the Nike app, this takes into account the obstacles that beginners face (lack of motivation, lack of time, lack of knowledge or lack of support).
While you can exercise on your own by exploring the app, the app automatically recommends a personalized plan that takes into account the current physical state of the people. In addition, you can find a series of “premium plans” that require a subscription for one month, six months or one year.
In general, this application has a functionality similar to that of a social networkwith a profile, biography, comments and a code option that allows the user to enter events as part of the ‘adiclub’.
Exercises at home: Without equipment
This application is also designed to suggest a personalized training system that also depends on the specifications given by the user, such as the parts of the body that he wants to train in a focused way (abdomen, chest, legs and arms).
In addition, it considers the motivations of the people who choose the platform to carry out their training, such as their desire to improve their self-esteem, reduce stress, improve their health or increase energy. This will help you set weekly goals based on the number of weekly training sessions.
This exercise platform also has routines or exercises labeled as “premium”, but that have the possibility of being unlocked if the user is willing to watch a 30-second ad. A notable difference from the subscription system used by Adidas.
Finally, the distinction of the routines by difficulty is more graphic, because next to each of the workouts you can see a rating system of 1 to 3 ‘rays’ that tell users what they can expect from an exercise like that.
