The pandemic has left us with poor fitness, confined as we are to our homes and work-from-home desks. Many people are complaining of fatigue and muscle weakness from having been sedentary these past four months of the lockdown. So, let’s get to doing something about our fitness. These five fitness apps will help you start an exercise regime at home and help you regain strength.



MyFitnessPal is among the most popular health apps in India. It assists you in losing the weight you might have put on from lowered activity during the lockdown and helps you maintain fitness. It will keep track of the food you consume, including the calories with its ‘calorie counter’, and offer diet suggestions. Based on your fitness goal, it calculates the amount of much physical activity or exercise you must take up to get there.

Sense Bio offers a package to track the health and fitness of an individual as well as their family. The app not only gives you activity suggestions based on user preferences, but also prescribes a diet based on your inputs about your health conditions, allergy information and so on. It also alerts you to drink water, take your pills and tracks your habits, ailments and therefore your fitness on the whole.

One of the largest fitness and group workout chains in India, Cult is present across Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Delhi, Mumbai, and Gurugram. On the app, you can choose from multiple workout formats from dance fitness, yoga, football, boxing, strength and conditioning , and more. You can also explore home workouts with the do-it-yourself fitness videos. Ranging 10 to 15 minutes, each home workout video is guided by basic movements that include warm-up, main exercise, and post-workout cooldown. Every workout or fitness session is designed to meet specific goals such as weight loss, cardiovascular endurance, strength, stamina, and so on. You may never have visited a gym but you can start getting fit with Cult at home.

Google Fit will help you track all your activity and it syncs up with your Google smartwatch where you can monitor your goals and stats.
