When it comes to exercise, some of us require a bit more cajoling to get up and moving. Luckily, there’s a whole collection of workout apps just for that -- plus some made especially for the junkies who can’t seem to stay away from the gym.

Those who are perpetually short on time can try Quick Fit: 7 Minute Workout, which leads you through a whole-body workout in less time than it takes to get a pizza delivered. Hot5 also offers short sessions, with an entire library of high-quality five-minute videos that you can switch up as often as you like. If you’re on the road with no gym in sight, Sworkit will customize a workout for you based on the amount of time you have and your location, whether it’s a thin-walled hotel room or an office cubicle.

Forget the personal trainer. With a smartphone and one of these apps, there’s truly no excuse not to get in shape. Read on, and get pumped. -- Nell McShane Wulfhart
