  • OK, so it’s February, and if you made a New Year’s resolution to get in shape, that’s probably out the window by now, right? Never fear - these awesome apps will help get you motivated again.
    CHARITY MILES: If you need more inspiration than just exercising for yourself, check out this app. You choose a charity you want to be connected with, and for every mile you travel, the charity will get a certain amount (10 cents a mile for bikers, 25 cents a mile for runners and walkers). You’ll be helping others and yourself.
    Free for iOS and Android.

    7 MINUTE WORKOUT CHALLENGE: With this app, you can do seven-minute workouts that will whip you into shape. Those seven minutes are fairly intense, however, so you might want to work up to this if you’re an exercise newbie.
    $1.99 for iOS. Android has a free 7 Minute Workout, but it’s not by the same creator.

    5K RUNNER: Want to run a 5K? This is the app for you. It has a training program to get you ready in eight weeks. You’ll start slowly with a combination of walking and running, and eventually progress to running 5K (3.1 miles).
    Free for iOS.

    Free for iOS and Android.
