Best apps…For better fitness results

Hot5, Pact, and more

Hot5 offers “sleek,” “easy to follow,” five-minute workout videos for seemingly every fitness need—“from abs to core to yoga and flexibility and everything in between.” Use the app to give your pecs a little attention after a run, or mix and match videos to build a full-body workout. (Free, iOS only)

Pact brings into play the ultimate moti-vator: money. You commit to doing a certain number of workouts a week and name the amount you’re willing to risk if you fall short. The app charges your credit card if you fail, and pays you if you succeed—with revenue it gets from the slackers. (Free, Android or iOS)

Zombies, Run! makes exercising more fun by treating each workout as if you’re on a survival mission in a world full of zombies. “Whether you’re saving a fellow human or outrunning a horde of the undead,” you’ll never be bored. ($3, Android or iOS)
