5 min read

Keeping fit has never been easier. From the countless YouTube videos out there to easy to follow meal plans and more-flexible-than-ever gym memberships, there’s a huge number of ways to keep on top of your fitness goals. Also huge in the world of fitness in 2021? Fit-fluencers. These insanely sculpted, inhumanely energetic people (we’re looking at you, Joe Wicks) spend their days encouraging and inspiring us to get active, both from their social media channels and their own dedicated apps. But which fit-fluencer has the best app out there?

Phone storage is precious, so we know you don’t want to download countless apps just to find that they’re pretty much useless, or there are sneaky hidden costs. So, here’s an official list of the best fit-fluencer apps, so you don’t have to waste any time that you could be spending smashing PBs.

To decide the best fit-fluencer apps, we’ve looked at these points to score them:

  • Apple App Store rating
  • Total number of Apple App Store reviews
  • Apple App Store global rank
  • Google Play Store rating
  • Total number of Google Play Store reviews
  • Google Play Store global rank
  • Subscription cost

The best overall fit-fluencer apps

When it comes to the best apps made by fit-fluencers, the women have it nailed. The top five apps overall were all made by women, and mostly focus on physical fitness and workouts

Krissy Cela’s Tone and Sculpt is the best fitness app

In the number one spot is Krissy Cela with her app, ‘Tone and Sculpt’. The app has high scores on both the App Store and Play store (4.9/5 and 4.7/5) and was created to give great quality home workout plans and training videos to women. It’s free to download, with a 14-day free trial, and if you fall in love with the content and fancy committing to a monthly subscription, it’ll set you back £13.99 a month. Whilst it's one of the more expensive apps in our study the rave reviews have placed it in the top spot and the easy to follow gym or home workout plans make a great supplement to any meal plan for incredible results!!

Tone It Up takes the silver

Influencers Karena Dawn and Katrina Scott created Tone It Up as a way to give women a great workout from home, using only female trainers, and including pregnancy and post-natal programs, too. The app even includes meal plans and healthy recipes, as well as meditation and nutrition tips. It’s free to download, and after a free trial, the monthly subscription will cost £11.16. A specific price to pay for some banging content.

Kayla Itsines has created one of the most popular fit-fluencer apps for women. The app has a load of workout videos, places where you can track and log your progress, meal plans and nutrition section, and even a ‘community’ of fellow exercisers to keep you motivated every step of the way. Once you’ve downloaded the app and made full use of the free trial, the monthly subscription will cost you £14.99. Not too shabby - as long as you use every inch of the app’s offerings.

Lisa Lanceford’s ‘pocket personal trainer’ is huge

Described on the App Store as ‘a health and fitness app offering a personal trainer and nutritionist in your pocket’, Strong and Sxy makes some big promises. Luckily, it looks like they’re delivering on them. It’s geared towards women, and rates pretty high on both the App Store (4.8) and Play Store (4.6). It costs £12.99 a month after a 14-day free trial, so it’s a pretty good investment if you’re serious about getting both strong and sexy.

The best fit-fluencer apps by women

As we’ve seen, female influencers are killing the fitness app game. While some are dedicated to female fitness, made by women for women, this doesn’t mean that others can’t also reap the benefits of these workouts. Nutrition advice, meditation and mindfulness guidance, and mental and physical well-being are universally applicable - but as far as our rankings are concerned, the girls are making apps that deliver this the best. Who run the (fit-fluencer app) world?

As well as all the female-made apps in the ‘best overall’ category, there are plenty of others that are worth mentioning. Lilly Sabri makes it into the top ten with her app, Lean with Lilly, ending up in sixth place overall in the female-made category. This app is only £9.99 a month, so it’s one of the cheaper options on the list. Whitney Simmons’ Alive has great ratings on both stores and costs £14.99 a month, but there aren’t many reviews on the Google Play store just yet. If this changes over time, this app could easily move up in the rankings. Be a hipster and get in there early.

Finishing off the women’s top ten are Hanna Öberg (OWNU), Tammy Hembrow (Tammy Fit) and Courtney Black (Courtney Black Fitness). These apps have a monthly subscription ranging from £13-£15, so they’re not the cheapest on the market, but they rate highly and are well-liked by current users. They all have a free trial, too, so you can see what you think and decide on your favourite before you even pay a single penny.

The best fit-fluencer apps by men

Only five of the best fit-fluencer apps on our list are made by men, but the ones that make the cut are pretty damn good. In the top spot, no surprise, is fitness icon Joe Wicks, with his app, The Body Coach. His app has a 4.8/5 ranking on the App Store, costs £14.99 a month, and includes a whole lot of content. Live workout sessions, pre-recorded videos, meal plans and even a planner come together to create the 15th best fit-fluencer app overall. But let’s face it, you pay for the personality with this one.

Also making the cut for the best male-made fit-fluencer apps are Ali Jawad’s Accessercise, Brandon Harding’s Hardbody, Matt Does Fitness’ Morsia and Mike Thurson’s THRST. The cheapest of these is THRST, at £9.99 a month, while Hardbody and Accessercise are £11.99 and Morsia is £14.99. They all have pretty high ratings  - apart from THRST on the Google Store with 2.5/5. Android users aren’t big Mike Thurson fans apparently.

Don't forget, abs are made in the kitchen so every fitness plan should be supplemented with a balanced diet for maximum results. Start your lifestyle change with Goal Getters: tailored meal plans delivered straight to your door.
