Your workout goals are unlike anyone else’s. Maybe you just want to move a little more, gain muscle, or start a new body sculpting program. There’s an online personal training app for almost every taste, and no shortage of choice if you want to experiment with a new fitness routine.

Daily Burn

If you like to vary your fitness time between yoga, cardio and strengthening routines, Daily Burn may be a great place to start. The app has more than 1000 workouts to stream, taught by well-known trainers such as Bob Harper of The Biggest Loser fame.


For employers who want to encourage workplace wellness, Grokker offers both motivation and appropriate tips. Grokker focuses on community, providing fitness challenges and monthly emails to keep up the momentum. If you like Grokker’s easy-to-use platform of fitness options, the app also has a package designed for individuals.


If one-on-one personal training is your goal, the Skype-enabled iBodyFit might be your ticket to more muscle mass. The app offers connections with trainers while also providing the option for online workouts you can do on your own. If you are a bodybuilder looking to tone up from home, give it a try.


Streaming workouts is a great way to get motivated to get in shape, but it can be tough to choose the best teacher. The benefit of TrainerPass is the ability to choose workouts by different well-known names. That way, you can go back and forth between teaching styles and modalities before settling down to a regular routine. If you get bored, you can switch to a new program within the same subscription.

Yoga Vibes

For those who enjoy yoga as a spiritual or meditative practice, or simply as a low-impact way to work out, Yoga Vibes offers a range of live and streamable classes and workouts. The app categorizes its workouts by audience, such as beginners, athletes, prenatal and partner yoga.

Getting fit always requires a bit of work, but with these fitness trainer apps, you can get started without committing to a gym membership. Many of these apps offer a free trial period so you can try it out and see if it helps you improve your health.
