Being a mum is time-consuming, whether you work outside of the home or not.

 

And considering many of us barely have a few spare minutes to even shower, the mere mention of squeezing a trip to the gym in during the day is actually laughable.

 

However, with the help of your smartphone and some pretty handy apps you can achieve your fitness goals without having to re-do your entire schedule. 

 

1. Couch to 5K

Want to start running? Well, you NEED to download this app. It’s just an eight week programme and is perfect for those who are a little wary about pounding the pavements.

7. 7 Minute Workout

Basically, all you have to do is spend seven minutes doing as many jumping jacks, lunges or planks as you can. It gives you 30 seconds to fit in as many reps of whatever it is you are doing as possible with a 10 second rest between sets. It even tells you when to start and stop and allows you to track your workouts.

8. Sworkit

This one is perfect for those who have more time in one day compared to other days. Simply choose your activity and the amount of time you can dedicate to it and start working out.
