  • As winter approaches, many of us struggle to make exercise a priority, preferring to stay inside and guzzle hot chocolate while huddling under 10 blankets rather than venturing out into the freezing tundra to fit in a workout. The colder months often lead to motivation loss and weight gain, but that doesn’t have to be the case.

 

runtastic (13,5 million app downloads) has launched a suite of indoor fitness apps to complement its 4.5+ star rated runtastic PRO running app. The new motion-activated apps for Smartphones & Tablets will improve strength and stamina, tone your major muscle groups and keep you motivated with an increasingly challenging workouts that you can complete quickly in the comfort (and warmth!) of your own home.

  • What are the indoor fitness apps and what do they do?

There is a push-up, pull-up, sit-up, and squats app for iOS and Android. Up until now runtastic  had primarily developed apps you can use outside to track you activities via GPS. Now runtastic  are able to serve people who love to workout in the gym, at home, literally wherever you want. Of course you can use the apps outside as well, but you don’t need GPS to track your activities. The best thing: All of this is done easily. The app and your smartphone automatically detect movement and will measure your repetitions. Now you can combine your outdoor activities like running, biking, and hiking with stationary exercises for your muscles, which provides you with the very important variety of activities necessary for your overall health and fitness. They automatically track your moves, in detail, and you can use the new Fitness App Collection anywhere you want, any time you like.
