Work It Out

We’re big fans of living room workouts. (Hey, gym memberships can be expensive!) Recently we gave Sworkit a go. The app works like this: Pick a type of workout—strength, cardio, yoga, or stretching—and specify upper body, lower body, core, or another program. Set the length of time you want to exercise, then follow the videos to get your sweat on. Audio cues help you know when to move so you don’t have to keep your eyes glued to your device. Bonus: Set workout goals, then track your progress to stay on target. Find out more at sworkit.com, or download the free app on Apple and Android devices.
