Freeletics offers a host of workouts that are all centered around high-intensity interval training, or HIIT. Starting free, Freeletics provide default sets of workout you could follow and do at your own pace. However, I find the real value from it’s paid subscription service.
Personally, I’ve used Freeletics with it’s paid coaching service. With around RM30 / month, you will receive customized exercises every week with video guides to help you perform them correctly. What I like about Freeletics is that the difficulty of exercises will adjust based on your performance to give you the best result. For those who never done HIIT, be prepared because it’s can be really tough!
Rather than focus on set exercise routines, Sworkit (Android, iOS) has users create targeted workout routines. Select whether you want to build strength, do yoga, practice cardio, stretch, pilates or build a custom routine, as well as a duration of your workout, and Sworkit builds you a routine of randomized exercises that fit your exercise goals. Each workout is different, making sure that you stay alert and are never bored. A premium version unlocks more features such as exercise variations, a workout history and the ability to save custom workouts for a fully customizable experience.
Tell Sworkit the type of workout you’re looking for (strength, cardio, yoga, or stretching) and the amount of time you’ve got to do it (anywhere from five minutes to an hour), and the app delivers moves to follow during your sweat session.
Choose to upgrade and the app will enable you to customise your workouts by setting the number of reps and the areas of the body you want to focus on.
It’s a simple system that offers great workouts for those already armed with knowledge of the areas they want to target.
