The Best Workout Apps For When Your Gym’s Closed And You’re Stuck At Home

In the current climate, it’s no surprise that most gyms are closed and leaving the house is a luxury. And without a squat rack and set of dumbbells at home, it can be easy to fall out of routine. Fortunately, there are a plethora of fitness apps out there that don’t require any equipment to get moving. Here are the best home workout apps that will ensure you stay moving even in isolation. 

1. Acero Training Series

Brought you by MH Favourite and trainer to the stars, Jono Castano, Acero Training Series is an interactive app that is great for both in and out of the gym (which means you don’t have to cancel it when the gyms reopen).
