The best part of working out from your home is that everything is in your control. You can set up the area anywhere, start working out anytime and choose your pace. I use a fitness app on my phone but the screen size limits the information that I can see during the exercise. If you use a Firestick then you can use the TV to help you get fit.

These are my picks for the best apps that you can use to get fit in your living room with Firestick. Even though the apps have a similar video style content, the core audience for every app is a little different.
