Financial stress not only impacts your ability to think clearly and come up with a plan of action, but it can also take a toll on your physical health as well. While it is important to get your finances in order, it is also just as important to ensure you are meeting your health and fitness goals. A good workout will get the endorphins pumping, which will make you feel good and be ready to conquer the world, to include coming up with a plan to tackle your debt and work out your budget.
Getting healthy does not need to mean spending money on expensive gym memberships and training sessions, here are five of the best free workout apps you can try out at home:
Nike Training Club
Available on both Android and iOS, Nike Training Club can help you meet all of your health and fitness goals with one simple app. Nike Training Club is free to download on your smartphone and features an extensive library with more than 100 fitness and training videos. Not only can you participate in fitness classes, but the app also allows you to track your workout goals and receive value nutrition advice.
Map My Fitness by Under Armor
With Map My Fitness by Under Armor, you can complete an intense workout in the comfort of your home or take your workout routine outside in nature. This interactive app is connected to GPS so you can track walking, running, and hiking routes and keep a log of your activity and calories burned. The Map My Fitness by Under Armor app comes complete with a set of workout routines as well as nutrition and wellness resources.
If your stress levels have led you to experience achy, tight muscles, the Daily Yoga app, available on Android and iOS offers several video-led yoga exercises you can do anywhere you are able to roll out a mat.
