The 5 Best Wellness & Health Downloads


by Grazia |

We live in a truly digital age. When you can now order a taxi (Hailo), restaurant food (Deliveroo) and even a boyfriend (on Tinder, kind of) from your phone, why shouldn't you give your workout a tech makeover too? Plus, as our 9-5 becomes more like a 8-'til-whenever-you've-battled-your-inbox, none of us have time to trawl the internet and magazines to bookmark workouts and recipe ideas. With this in mind, we've rounded up the five best wellness downloads that can be yours at the tap of a button, and have the power to get you feeling cleaner and leaner in no time.

Gone are the days of outdated pedometers and calorie-counting crunchers - the new breed of wellness downloads take a much more holistic approach, with healthy, mood-boosting recipes, tailored exercise plans and tips on mindfulness and meditation. We all know you can't have a strong body without a strong mind, and these apps are all designed to get you feeling happy and healthy in yourself, and listening to your body rather than bulldozing you into doing a thousand crunches.

That being said, you can still expect some seriously transformative results from these downloads - Joe Wicks', aka The Body Coach's, website is full of before and after snaps of clients who've seriously toned up under his ninety day plan, while devotees of clean-eating evangelist Deliciously Ella report clearer skin, boosted moods and trimmer waistlines after following her recipes. Click through the gallery to see our top five picks to download today - a new you is just a click away.
