The Best New Fitness Apps for 2019

We’ve all been there: the festive season passes and soon we are standing on the scale while our hearts sink. What follows next is the inevitable New Year’s resolution to slim down and get fit and we head to the nearest gym to sign a contract… but, this isn’t the only way to achieve your goal! With this in mind, here are the best new fitness apps for 2019.

7 Minute Workout

While it’s easy to blame a lack of fitness on a busy schedule, there are no more excuses with the 7 Minute Workout app. With an intense focus on delivering short, but intense workout sessions, the 7 Minute Workout app provides users with over 1,000 variations of science-based workout routines developed by Chris Jordan. Including a Smart Workout feature, the app makes use of your fitness level to deliver the right combination of workouts and intensity.


Many fitness apps fall short in that they require the user to look at the screen which can be distracting and difficult when you’re focusing on staying in the “zone”. This is where Aaptive comes in! This audio-only fitness class allows you to set goals, choose a workout, trainer, and music before you get going so you don’t have to look at your phone again until you’re done.

Fitbit Coach

While Fitbit Coach works well while wearing a Fitbit, the good news is that you don’t need one to use this fitness app – much like you don’t need a laptop to enjoy on the go. With workouts ranging from 7-60 minutes, you can fit in a workout no matter how busy your schedule and the programmes evolve as your fitness levels improve. You can use Fitbit Coach in audio only mode and it has built in music too.

JEFIT Workout

With over 1,300 exercises including demonstrative animations, the JEFIT Workout app also allows you to track your progress and see statistics about your workout. All this information syncs to the web so that you can view your progress no matter where you are. You’ll also be able to connect with the JEFIT community for support and motivation and you’ll also have access to the workout routines of other members for inspiration.

Strava Running and Cycling

If you’re looking for a fitness app which can handle you’re already well-rounded fitness level and help you achieve more, then the Strava Running and Cycling app is perfect for you. This free app is developed by athletes with athletes in mind and offers options which will help you to truly push yourself to new limits.

Sweat with Kayla

The Sweat with Kayla app is your best bet if you’re looking to dramatically change the way you look and achieve the ultimate bikini body. Including workouts which can be done at home with little to no equipment, Sweat with Kayla also includes high-intensity 28 minute workout sessions. While fitness apps are certainly more popular today than ever before, they’re made even better by the fact that they are almost always compatible with the best smartwatches.
