Check it out: FitStar Personal Trainer app

Too busy to go to the gym? Then check out this app that offers a personalised workout no matter where you are.

Organised across four simple levels, you’ll find “get lean” which focuses on cardio; “get strong” for strength training; “daily dose” for a 15-minute workout and “freestyle”.

A smart app, it adjusts to your pace by responding to how you rate the workout, from easy to tough. 

It’s just like a personal trainer, only cheaper.
