Tabata workouts are a hot trend, and why wouldn't they be? A four-minute workout that's as effective as it is fast is like the Holy Grail of fitness. The trick to mastering a true Tabata routine is to properly manage time. With eight rounds of exercise alternating between 20 seconds of all-out effort followed by 10 seconds of rest, you have to have the right timer. Tabata FREE is your solution. Pre-programmed to time your Tabata intervals, you'll never have to worry about watching a clock or resetting your timer. It truly makes Tabata effortless... except for the whole exercise part. Available on iTunes and Google Play.

Users say: "Does exactly what you need it to. I love the way it uses different colors for rest/work cycles. Only wish you could personalize the sounds."

When you can't make it to the yoga studio or if you just want to learn the basics without the pressure of wandering eyes in class, this app provides tutorials for almost 100 poses and mudras. The basic moves are explained and accompanied by photos, and you can also access a daily audio lesson for the "pose of the day." If you're new to yoga and need a little more help sorting through all the options, there's a Find a Pose feature that allows you to sort poses by common need, like poses that help increase energy or poses that aid in weight loss. Available on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon and Microsoft.

Users say: "As a beginner yoga student, I like having an easy, handy guide to remind me how the poses I learned in class worked."
