Free training apps that help with your fitness and skills

There are a lot of mobile and Tablet apps out there and some are better than others here are a few Android Apps that I have been using that are helpful.

this is one of a series that Virtual Trainer have done, they cover, bosu, resistance bands, kettle bells, most of the every day  fitness tools that we can use at home or in the gym. This one Body wight is free the others are about five euros.
It would be nice to see them sold a pack at a discount price. Having said that, The Apps are nicely put together with simple video instructions, married with timers for hitt with a nice range of exercises to keep your workouts fresh.
selecting the muscle group displays a number of options.

Swimming App

This sounds a bit strange but it has some nice tips from instructors with some clear video showing common errors and instruction on how we can change. I like this as the verbal and visual combination help me imagine how my stroke is. It’s a free App that and some work has gone into this so well worth a look.
the App is all in English inspite of the Spanish title, just my IP address

Mountain Bike

The last App that I enjoy using is International Mountain Bike Magazine, much the same as mbr in the UK or Bike in Spain, new bike reviews, tech, riders and rides in different parts of the world, nice glossy pics and good stories. Some nice video links. Like all mags they have one focus to sell products and this does that too. So why spend five pounds when you can have a mag that is free.
there are lots of back issues so you have plenty to catch up on.

Global Mountain Bike Network have some nice skills videos that can help us all polish our riding. And its all in the hips. Again if you know why the hips are so important than write a comment to see if you’re right.
