Carrot Fit/iOS (Rs 190)

app.jpgThe developers of Carrot Fit describe it as your new fitness overlord. They also describe it as hilarious. In the app you will meet a sadistic AI which has one and only one goal. Make you fit. It uses every trick in the book to reach that goal. And when they don’t work it will start ridiculing and even threatening you. The workouts have been scientifically planned to last exactly seven minutes but to get the maximum impact out of those seven minutes.

Ingress/Android & iOS (Free)

Ingress is sure to make you fit because it is not a fitness app. It is crafted to make you fit by making you get out of home and run around. The virtual reality game from Google uses real locations around you into points on a map from which you need to collect a mysterious energy. You can either play as ‘The Enlightened’ or as ‘The Resistance’ and play against the rival faction.

Tempo Run/iOS (Free)

Tempo Run uses your own music library to get the right tempo going for your run. It also lets you see the stats of your workout so you can decide how far into the new year you can quit your fitness program.

Sworkit Lite/Android & iOS (Free)

Hiring a personal trainer, even in a gym, can be expensive and time-consuming. Sworkit, a free app available for both iOS and Android, provides us with a virtual personal trainer always in our pocket. It comes with specially crafted workouts for everything from strength and cardio to pilates, stretching, and even yoga. And if you are working with a real personal trainer, the app lets you easily create custom workouts. If you have doubts, the app provides guided videos to help you.
