If you have seven min­utes to spare, you can change your body and your fit­ness lev­els us­ing noth­ing more than a chair, a wall and the willpower to work out once a day for seven months. That’s the premise be­hind Seven, an app which turns ex­er­cises into a game. You start your fit­ness jour­ney with three lives. Miss a work­out, and you’ll lose one; miss three work­outs in a month, and you’ll need to start from the be­gin­ning. Each work­out is clearly de­scribed and il­lus­trated, with au­di­ble and vi­bra­tional prompts which help you switch be­tween pe­ri­ods of ex­er­cise and rest. With achieve­ments to earn and plenty of ways to mon­i­tor your progress, it’s very easy to get sucked into the Seven plan — and you’ll need to sign up for the subscription pro­gramme to un­lock ad­di­tional work­outs and plans which suit spe­cific goals like weight loss. It’s not nec­es­sar­ily be­gin­ner friendly (if you can’t do a push-up, even the first work­out is go­ing to be a strug­gle), but it’s a great mo­ti­va­tional tool.
