It’s hard to get into shape. Finding the willpower to wake up early and exercise is hard enough without the added hassle of finding a trainer to help you get fit. Enter Vent-Up, a startup that aims to bring people and trainers together to create custom fitness and nutrition plans with its V-Training app. Both trainers and those who are looking for a fitness guru can use the app.

V-Trining works in several states, including Washington, DC., New York, California, Maryland, Ohio, Texas, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Arizona. Once you open the app, it will ask if you’re looking for a trainer or if you are a trainer. From there, you can either set up your profile as a trainer or search for the trainer that best suits your workout goals.

If you’re looking for a trainer, the app will locate you and automatically show you all the trainers nearby on a map. You can then view those trainers and find out their experience, training style, certifications, going rates, and more. The app also shows user ratings for some trainers and photos of their past clients. You can request and book times with your trainer through the app and have one-on-one interactions with them.

If you’re a trainer, you’ll be able to create 6-day training and nutrition plans for your clients. You can send those plans or videos through V-Message right within the app. You’ll have access to a calendar with appointments and reminders for training sessions. The built-in messaging system will allow you to easily get in touch with your clients at any time.

The V-Training app is available for both iOS and Android. It’s free to download, but you will have to pay the trainer you sign up with in the app.

The best coupon apps for iOS and Android

Strategic shoppers often rely on coupons to help them save money on items they regularly buy or special items they plan to purchase. Coupon apps are a variation of the theme -- just like clipping coupons from your local newspaper. Typically, you'd use coupons for groceries, clothing, restaurants, concerts, amusement parks, or other services. Smartphone-based coupon apps, which are generally available free of charge from Apple's App Store or Google's Play Store, make it easy to cash in on discounts and offer numerous creative ways to save and collect. Coupon apps scan the web for deals and pass them to you via cash back, digital coupons, promo codes, or paper coupons and then let you save instantly or collect your rewards whenever you're ready.

Not all coupon apps operate the same way: Some require you to save or scan your receipt, others transform paper coupons into digital ones, while others give you a discount if you pay in advance for an item, and some combine several techniques that suit your shopping habits and preferences. We've picked out some of the most useful coupon apps available for iOS and Android.
