Each step between you and working out is one more excuse to not exercise.

I’ve been there.

Put on your clothes, get a water bottle and bag together, drive to the gym, get a locker, figure out what you want to work on, wait for an open machine, the list is endless.

Let’s remove as many barriers as we can. That’s why I rounded up a bunch of free workout apps so you can roll out of bed and quickly work out in the comfort of your own home.


Using a free workout plan app helps create and organize routines and track your progress.

I’ve filtered out the clutter for you, so you wouldn’t have to install (then uninstall) thousands of fitness apps on both the App Store and Google Play.

Check out some of the best free exercise apps that could help you stay on track with your fitness goals going forward:

Looking for Something that Doesn’t Feel Like a Workout?

15. Zombie Run

  • iOS and Android free (Optional Abel Runner’s Club membership fee of $5.99/month or $39.99/year)

Only a few have survived the zombie epidemic.

You are a Runner en route to one of humanity’s last remaining outposts. They need your help to gather supplies, rescue survivors and defend their homes.

When you’re ready to exercise, wear your headphones (so you can hear your missions, music, and zombie grumbles) and speed up when you’re being chased by zombies.

It’s super-fun and has over 200 missions and award-winning storytelling. Plus rewards (supplies and building equipment) that could encourage you to get your heart racing.

Whether you decide to go for their paid version, in-app purchases, or not, you can still hit your fitness goals if you just stick your eyes on the prize.
