Workout Apps We're Loving

Nov 29, 2019Rise Bar Team

The Rise Bar team here is focusing on finish the year strong and continuing to Rise Above the goals we've set for 2019. Sometimes, it can be hard to make it to the gym, or even know which workout to do when we get there. We love using work out apps to help us push our selves in work outs, or to help us do a great at home gym workout. Check out some of our favorite work out apps for home workouts, or to help you hit your work out goals. 

Down Dog

Yoga has so many great benefits such as flexibility, mental strength and muscle toning. Down Dog is one our the best yoga apps in our opinion. It allows you to select the style of yoga that you want to do as well as any specific body part that you want to focus on. You're able to select the length of time, and even customize your teacher and music.

Price: Free
Apple watch compatible: Yes

"I love doing yoga as a way to help calm my mind and refresh each day. Down Dog is great because I can pick what yoga style I want and how long I want the workout to be"

Nike Run

We love the Nike Run app because not only does it track your run, but it provides lots of useful information for runners. It can track overall trends in running, show running speed, and facts about your surrounds during the run.

"After a long day of work nothing helps me relax and clear my mind like a run. Nike Run Club is great because I can track each run, see trends, and keep track of my progress."
