Best Free Exercise Apps for Kindle Fire

The Amazon Kindle Fire is still one of the most popular tablets on the market. The problem is that most of us only use it to read eBooks downloads. You can use your Kindle Fire for so much. For instance, you can use it to help you lose weight and boost your health.

Your Kindle Fire comes pre-loaded with some apps, but I know from other users that we often do not download many of the other free apps which are available. Free apps for your Kindle Fire from games to help on how to track and manage your finances.

Free Exercise Apps for Kindle Fire

Kindle Fire is a popular tablet with business travelers. Traveling on business can sometimes be lonely, and have a Kindle full of ebooks to read is absolutely great. However, business travelers often complain that keeping fit and healthy away from home is difficult.

But thanks to technology, you can use your Kindle Fire to help you to stay healthy and exercise. You can download some excellent free exercise and keep fit apps. The free apps available range from Yoga to Tabata so whatever exercise routine suits you is available as a completely free app.

I travel a lot so I have had the opportunity to try out quite a few of the available free Kindle Fire apps, and they have all become an important part of my exercise routine.

Top Five Free Exercise and Work Outs Apps for Kindle Fire HD

Simply Yoga

This is one of the best yoga apps or online yoga workouts which I have come across. I especially like this app because you can choose the workout length. This is a really great idea as you may not have 60 minutes available for a full length work out. Simply Yoga lets you set your own time, and you can choose from 20, 40 or 60 minutes.

It also allows you to select different routines which means you don’t have to stick to the same work out every day. Routines can easily become boring and may stop challenging us. One of the other advantages of this app is that you can also easily jump to a specific routine such as the sun salutations or the warrior poses.

Another neat feature of Simply Yoga is that it allows you to start from a certain pose which is great for people that only enjoy certain yoga poses or find certain poses challenging.

The spoken instructions are very clear, and unlike any other free apps it is a real person performing the exercises. If you are not familiar with yoga, or don't like going to yoga classes, this is an excellent app to download to your Kindle Fire.

Yoga Guru

Yoga Guru is another free yoga app available for Kindle Fire. in my opinion, it is a very well thought out app, and I am surprised it is not downloaded more. Many of my friends have tried it, and they are now saving a fortune by doing a complete yoga work out at home instead of going to expensive yoga classes.

This app is a bit more in-depth than Simply Yoga. From the starter menu, you can choose from Physical Yoga Exercises, Meditation Yoga Exercises, and Medical Yoga Exercises. The Medical Yoga section is great, as it clearly shows you safe and effective yoga exercises for some of the most common ailments.

Yoga Guru also allows you to choose the yoga regime which suits you the best. All you need to do is to click on the icon in the top hand right corner of the screen, and the drop menu will give you a choice of Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced or Customized regimes.

The spoken instructions are in a slight Indian accent but you will soon get used to that. The steps on how to perform each pose are also explained along with the benefits and cautions. I also like that many of the breathing exercises are included such as Alternate Nostril Breathing.

You can upgrade to a Pro version for $1.99 but I have not upgraded mine as I feel the free app provides me with enough benefits.

Free Cardio Workout App for Kindle Fire

Daily Cardio

This is another great work out from the same people who put together the Simply Yoga app.

I love this app because you don’t need a lot of space to do the routines. If you only have a small area available, you don’t need to worry.

A lot of the Simply apps run on the same theme which means you don’t need to familiarize yourself with another app. Just like with Simply Yoga you can select the length of your work out.

Daily Cardio lets you choose between 5, 8 or 10 minutes. All three routines are really good, and if you are after a quick cardio workout this app is for you. Sometimes I only have five minutes to spare but five minutes is better than nothing.

You can choose from workout routine one and two. Both workouts are not too hard, but still of definite benefit. The spoken instructions are clear, and the screen shows the exercise.

Abdominals In Eight Minutes

This app allows you to focus on your abdominal area. Our abdominal muscles are really important to us, as they give us core strength and help us to support our backs.

A well-toned core also makes us look slimmer, and as we all know, exercise belly fat is bad news

What I like about this app is that it has many different routines to choose from including a four-minute work out for women. You can even do a super-fast 3 minute work out, so no excuses for not trying this app. There is even a mixed chest and abs work out.

All the exercises come with motivational music, and I love the special rock edition. Overall, this is a brilliant free app from Amazon if you need to work on your abdominal area.

7 Minutes Work Out - Best Workout For Busy Kindle Fire Users

This is a 7-minute workout for the super busy Kindle Fire user. It was originally published by the American College of Sports Medicine and became a popular article in the New York Times.

The only equipment you need for this fund work out is a sturdy chair which is used in some of the exercises. The workout routine can best be described as a Tabata workout, but don’t let that put you off if you are not into Tabata. This app delivers 12 exercises in seven minutes. Each exercise takes 30 seconds, and there is also a 10 second recovery period between each exercise. It is based on interval training, and the exercises are clearly explained. A timer counts you down, and you can choose to do the exercise again.

Other Amazon Exercise and Fitness Apps to Check Out

There are many more apps available. Some apps are not free but offer excellent value for money. Gym memberships are expensive, and gyms are not for everybody.

With Kindle Fire you can take your exercises with you anywhere you can go in the world. Share them with friends or do them on your own.
