14 July 2022

Between lectures, seminars, studying and socialising we know that it’s easy for workouts to fall down the list of priorities. 

Working out isn’t just important for general health and fitness – it’s also a powerful de-stresser which as a student can definitely come in handy. 

If you need a little motivation or general help to reach your #fitnessgoals it’s likely there’s an app to get you there. To save you scrolling, we’ve compiled a list of the top workout apps to use for students.

Where is it available?  Android and iOS

Regardless of your fitness level, you’ll find this app incredibly useful. It has a plethora of cardio workouts that change as you progress through the stages. 

It’ll get your heart rate up, burn calories and as you progress through the app’s schedule of training sessions you’ll notice a huge difference in your personal fitness.
