Tune In, Zone Out: Apps To Download For The Perfect Home Workout

    We know you're missing your gymming or running routine badly. And sometimes, working out while bearing the lockdown, can be challenging, especially when there are so many distractions at home (for example, your bed) But the right kind of music plays an important role in helping you get into the groove. So if you hate the idea of hearing the sound of your own breath while working out, worry not. Because we've found you these awesome apps that’ll let you zone out from all the noise in your house.

    Rock My Run

    Rock My Run has curated playlists from professional DJs like David Guetta, Major Lazer and Zedd, who have put together music according to the BPM, genre and the kind of activity you’re doing at the time. You can also track your workout and yes, the app is compatible with watches (apple and android). Each and every playlist in the app is specially selected and seamlessly blended together, delivering a unique work out experience.
