After your workout, you can use points you earn on missions to rebuild civilization in the post-apocalyptic world. Free with in-app purchases for iOS and Android.
3. Couch to 5K
This running app is designed to help you get in shape, one step at a time. You get to choose between four virtual coaches, ranging from a cheerleader to a hard taskmaster. Your coach then gives you tips on how to perform better and even motivates you when you slow down.

This app makes your at-home workout more interesting. As a part of the Orbital Defence Corps, you are tasked with powering up your superhero battle suit by completing high-intensity workouts in short intervals of time.
