1. Tone It Up
“They do all of the thinking for you.They post a weekly schedule every Sunday, so instead of getting to the gym, not having a plan and tiring out/getting bored, I have a routine to stick to.” —Rachel

2. Physique 57
“I love Physique 57’s online workouts. They’re perfect when I’m out of town and can’t make it to their studio. Now I’ve gotten all my friends around the country hooked—and they love me for it.” —Jennifer

3. Nike Training Club
“I appreciate that the app provides workouts lasting from 9 minutes to 45 minutes. I also like that even if you want to focus on one part of your body in a 15 minute workout, you still get a full workout for the rest of your body with a special emphasis on, say, arms. Absolute favorite.” —Shiveta

4. POPSUGAR Fitness
“They have everything from targeted 5 to 10 minute workouts to full body 30+ minute routines. The lead trainer, Anna, has great energy and enthusiasm. Love using PopSugar!” —Jenna

5. Ballet Beautiful
“The online custom workout has so many different videos that you can mix and match to make a workout that fits with the time you have and to target the different body areas you want to work on. It is really hard and helps develop long, lean muscles and great posture. I am obsessed!” —Lili
