No time to hit the gym? No extra cash left over in your junk food budget to afford a personal trainer? Then pull out your phone or pop open your computer, because Sworkit ($free!) is about to rock your love handles. This iPhone, Android, or computer-based app is all about squeezing in the fitness whenever time allows. You can select a workout length, anywhere between five to sixty minutes. Then choose between a number of different workout types, ranging from upper body to core strength, "anything goes" to a full sequence of yoga. And all without the need for extra equipment; just you and your motivation are necessary. The easy-to-follow instructions make even a fitness novice feel like a seasoned Olympian. The pro version features audible announcements at the changing of each exercise, as well as video instructions. But if your pants are feeling looser and your energy is lasting longer, you'll know that you're doing it right.
