The only downside of being a workout maven is the cost. Gym memberships don’t come cheap, and boutique workout classes, from yoga to kickboxing, add up. However, we’ve found a budget-friendly way to stay fit and have fun, all for under $10 a month. Whether you are a runner, dancer, or a weightlifter, we’ve found six amazing workout apps for you.
Founded by Marie Claire contributing Sarah Kunst, Proday features workouts with professional athletes, like strength training with NFL’s Delanie Walker. Each workout is 30 minutes or less, and the app even lets you log your workouts.
According to a study at the University of Florida, this is the best personal trainer app for aerobics, strength and resistance training, and flexibility. Just choose a strength, yoga, cardio, or stretch routine, select a time length between 5 and 60 minutes, and follow the trainer in the video.
Price: Free for the lite version, $5/month for the premium version
Remember Christina Milian? The early aughts pop star could dance—and twerk. For less than the price of a Starbucks latte, Milian will teach you how to twerk step-by-step and then incorporate them into hip hop dance routines on the app. If you’re bored of your usual fitness routine, this is worth a shot.
Cassey Ho revolutionized the online fitness industry into a community of girl power and body positivity, and the best part is that her POP Pilates videos are free. Don’t let her chipper personality and perky voice fool you during the works—you’ll be breathless and sweaty while she’s effortlessly starting another 8-count.
Price: Free, but the “secret” workout video is $.99/month
This running app donates money, paid by a group of sponsors, to the charity of your choice for every mile that you run. The current sponsorship pool is $530,000, and it ends on May 31st. That means you have less than a month to get back in shape—for a good cause.
Price: Free—the donation money comes from corporate sponsors
