When it comes to working out, sometimes we need some form of guidance. Sometimes fitness classes are a good choice to help you out, but not everyone wants to go out for a 1-hour lesson. That’s where fitness apps come in. There are lots to choose from, but it can be hard to know which ones are good, and more importantly, which ones are good for you. If you can find the right one, they can be like bringing your fitness classes into your home, and many of them are a lot cheaper than a gym membership.
At Exercise.co.uk, we have several fitness apps and memberships that pair with our equipment. This way, you can work out from home with a professional’s guidance, and you can make the workout fit your needs.

Own Your Goals
Own Your Goals is the fitness membership from Davina McCall. The membership provides workout classes for a range of exercise types as well as helping with eating and nutrition. All of this is designed to help you on your journey to becoming fitter and healthier.
When signing up, it allows you to personalise your plan by asking a range of questions to ensure the information the app provides you with is what is best for you. Questions such as your goal, your height and weight, your activity level and when you want to hit your goal will help your membership be personalised to your needs and provide you with the best plan to guide you to your end goal.
The Own Your Goals membership also comes with the ability to speak and share your story with others in the community, to help push you on to reach those goals, but also so that you can help others in the same situation.
The bonus of this membership is that many of the classes are paired with Davina’s own fitness equipment, which is affordable and space-saving, perfect for your at-home training.
So take a look and see if this suits your needs. If it does, head over to Exercise to get your equipment and get started.

Sole Fitness equipment also comes with its own app for your phone or tablet device. It is designed so that you can link it up via Bluetooth to your sole machine (treadmill, exercise bike etc.), and it will store all of your workout information for you to access anywhere. If you want that data backed up to a fitness watch, for example, the app will sync your data when you are done.
All you need to do is set up your user profile and sync it to your machine, and you are good to go. Listen to your music or check your social media whilst you workout, and at the end, head back to the app for all of your information. The app also allows you to control your workout should you want to increase the intensity or change something.
It doesn’t just work with your sole equipment, though. It also has an outdoor feature, meaning you can go for a run, walk or cycle and it will track all of the same things your machine does as well as your route.
- Free to use.
- Works with your Sole fitness equipment and on its own.
