Our favourite workout app: Sworkit
Sworkit is a free, customizable workout app available to download onto your smartphone. You can choose which part of the body you want to work out (i.e. chest, abs, arms, etc.) or which type of workout you feel like doing that day (i.e., pilates, yoga, cardio, strength training, etc.). There are videos put together by real trainers that explain how to do each activity, and you can even put together your own custom workout. It is like having your very own personal trainer in the comfort of your home!
