The best workout apps for exercising at home

Working out in the gym just isn't in the cards all the time. Whether you don't have time, find gyms to be intimidating, simply don't like going to a physical gym, or something else is preventing you from going, you can still exercise. Workout apps allow you to meet your fitness goals at home, and they may actually be the motivation you need to get moving.
Luckily, there are a ton of fitness apps out there. Unfortunately, that can be a bit overwhelming if you don't know what you're looking for.
What fitness app is best for me?

You'll also need to figure out what your goals are, whether it's weight loss, muscle toning, or something else. Read more...
