In this age where most of us lead sedentary lifestyles, it is next to impossible to squeeze in some sort of workout or activity in our busy schedules. We would love to have a workout partner to compete with, or a personal trainer or dietician! Wouldn’t that be just wonderful!? Well, technology is here to the rescue! In this day of smart gadgets there are some smart fitness apps available across platforms that can help you can keep fit. So, here’s a list of some cool apps which can help you stay in shape, all by yourself!

1. Gympact

What if I told you that you could get paid for losing that flab? Sounds impossible? Well, Gympact is the perfect app for those who need that extra incentive. With this app you set a goal for yourself each week and commit an amount you are willing to shell out if you fail. If you do not match your goal you lose the amount promised but if you do manage to somehow sweat your way to meet your goal you get rewarded, in terms of payment from those who lost on their goals that week.

Compatibility: iPhone and Android; Cost: Free

2. Runkeeper

Its easy layout is helpful and it also allows you to keep in touch with your friends so you can compete or track each others’ records. It allows one to listen to music, save routes, take selfies and do many more things to get the best out of a run or a walk.

3. Yoga Studio

Whether you are a beginner or a pro, you can set your skill level accordingly and create a yoga schedule for yourself for a 15 to 60 minute practice routine. A good thing about the app is that its videos are compressed and so don’t take up too much space on your phone.
