When it comes to exercise, it can take every possible aid to get some of us up and moving. Luckily, there’s a whole collection of apps just for that—plus some made especially for the junkies who can’t seem to stay away from the gym.

Those who are perpetually short on time can try Quick Fit: 7 Minute Workout, which leads you through a whole-body workout in less time than it takes to get a pizza delivered. Hot5 also offers short sessions, with an entire library of high-quality five-minute videos that you can switch up as often as you like. If you’re on the road with no gym in sight, Sworkit will customize a workout for you based on the amount of time you have and your location, whether it’s a thin-walled hotel room or an office cubicle. And if you love to track data, Moves will note all the movements you make each day, encouraging you to meet your fitness goals.

Forget the personal trainer. With a smartphone and one of these apps, there’s truly no excuse not to get in shape.
