It's never easy to force yourself off the sofa into a lycra ensemble, particularly when there's an episode of Eastenders on the telly. But with a few simple tips and tricks from these handy fitness apps, exercising will become an absolute breeze. Here are our favourites. 

Couch to 5k 

Love being a couch potato? Then this app's for you! If you find it hard to leave the confines of your sofa, this app will get you into gear. The idea of the app is to gradually train you up to running 5k. You use the app for 20 to 30 minutes, three times a week, then by the end of the nine-week programme, you'll be able to run a 5k race.

You can choose your virtual coach – there is a Sergeant if that floats your boat – and they'll be there all the way to encourage you to keep going when you're finding your training tough. There's also a GPS function which means you won't get lost whilst you're en route – always handy – and you can track how far you've run and your overall running pace. There's also a music function so you can listen to your favourite tracks while you work out. Available on iTunes (Paid)
