Kayla Itsines, the super-fit Australian Instagram influencer, used to be known for her cult-famous PDF-based workout plans — but now she has an app. Not only does it make it easier to follow along to her challenges with audio cues, but it also allows you to be flexible. For example, there are special postpartum plans as well as challenges that focus on mindfulness, rather than a “bikini body.”
When you download the Tone It Up app, it’s like stepping into Karena and Katrina‘s (the BFF personal trainer duo that built the brand) rosé-colored, endorphin-fueled world. There are hundreds of on-demand guided workout classes that you can access through the app, as well as “daily moves” that serve as a great strength-training base for whatever the rest of your workout entails.
If you’re attached to your Fitbit at all times, you’ll appreciate their smart personal training app. The app’s algorithm will suggest workouts based on your daily activity, including bodyweight strength-training sessions and outdoor running workouts.

In those times when you want to take yoga, but know you won’t make it to an IRL class, open up this yoga app from Daily Burn. Once you establish what your goals are, the app will suggest a weekly yoga routine, to help you develop a specific skill (such as crow) or work on an particular area of the body.
You know those bright yellow straps hanging from the ceiling of your gym? They’re TRX straps, and they’re about to be your new favorite strength-training tool.
