BEST FOR RUNNERS

Zombies, Run!

In a running rut? Try “Zombies, Run!” Functioning like an interactive audio book, the app transforms a simple jog into a mission to save a zombie-ravaged world. While you run, you’ll hear narration of a zombie apocalypse unfolding. Your character in the story “collects” more tins of food, cellphones and other such essentials the more you pound the pavement. And when the “Zombies Detected” alarm sounds, pick up your pace! You can listen to your own music during lulls in the story—but don’t be surprised if your favorite song gets interrupted by the sounds of gunfire and tearful laments from those who’ve lost loved ones to zombies. Free, for Android and iOS, zombiesrungame.com

MOST VERSATILE

Sworkit

If you have space on your smartphone for just one workout app, make it this one. The well-rounded offerings in “Sworkit” are broken down into four categories: cardio, strength, yoga (which includes Pilates) and stretching. In each, you’ll find super-basic demonstration videos. A timer ticks down as you perform the exercises, and the app gives you a break after each set. With such a wide variety of exercises that you can complete anywhere, on any schedule, without any equipment, you’ll be hard pressed not to stay active. Free for basic version, upgrades optional, for Android and iOS, sworkit.com

MOST TAILORED

FitStar Personal Trainer

FitStar features videos of NFL tight end Tony Gonzalez as your virtual coach and adapts its workouts to meet your skill level. After each session, you rank each exercise as “easy,” “just right” or “brutal,” and the app will adjust future offerings to be challenging but not demoralizing. There’s an impressive variety of programs, from “Alpine Blitz” for skiers to “Race Day Ready” for those prepping for the hilly San Francisco Marathon—and you can do everything without equipment. For even more detailed customization, you can sync the app with your Fitbit (which acquired FitStar last year) or other wearable. Free for basic version, upgrades optional, for Android and iOS, fitstar.com
