With a fair chunk of your time spent at work, you might be wondering how to keep your body moving and motivated. Luckily, working out at home has never been simpler or more effective.

From Instagram to apps, there are a plethora of at-home workout programs just vying to get you up and moving, which could be a much more convenient option than going to the gym.

But, deciding on the best home workouts that are right for you is a personal choice, so to help ease the decision we’ve rounded up some of the most popular on the market. 

Below, a breakdown of some great at-home workout apps to try. 



Kayla Itsines, a personal trainer from Adelaide, founded Bikini Body Guides (BBG) in 2016 with partner Tobi Pearce. The premise was based on 28-minute workouts that would help increase strength and fitness for women around the world, all from the comfort of home.

Itsines’ program has grown through her Sweat app, which now offers extensions of the BBG workouts, including BBG Stronger, BBG Beginner and BBG Zero, as well as yoga and maternity programs. The app’s most appealing feature though is its extensive global community of women that help motivate each other along the way. Not to mention, marie claire readers get 10 per cent off, plus a 14-day free trial (normally 7 days), when you sign up here.
