Where once the gym reigned supreme, the iOS app has snuck in to play. More and more athletically-inclined people are opting to skip the showers and grimy mats in lieu of workouts in their own homes. It’s less time and less hassle, but (hopefully) produces similar results.
I’ve been testing a wide variety of these fitness apps for Macworld, but I wanted to highlight my personal favorite so far (and the only one I’ve continued to use): FitStar.
Like many other fitness apps, FitStar aims to help you improve your personal fitness and stamina with not much more than your own body weight. It uses a mix of squats, planks, bridges, twists, leg-lifts, and yoga moves to get you stronger and faster in your daily life.
