How to Stay Fit at Home

Quarantine seems to have done a number on most of us and with gyms still closed we all need to become creative when it comes to getting back in shape!

Switching to a home workout isn’t easy but there are ways you can establish a great home workout routine to get you through this pandemic happy and healthy.

Free home workout apps

If you love the atmosphere of a gym or studio then these apps are for you. They are prerecorded or live videos of classes that you can do right in your living room. These videos are typically between 25-60 mins and most require little to no equipment so you can jump right in and get your sweat on!

Now most do require a subscription or membership but due to the pandemic many providers are offering them either for free or for an extended trial.

Here is a list of all the ones we think you would enjoy:

Peloton

CorePower Yoga

Nike Training Club

No equipment or time to spare?

HIIT workouts need to become your new best friend. HIIT stand for “high intensity interval training,” and these short workouts are just as effective as a full gym session! What these workouts do is challenge you in the cardio and muscle department, improving your heart, lungs, muscles, and nervous system. Best part is these workouts can be done in 20 mins or less! Some of the mentioned apps above offer HIIT workouts but if you don’t want to deal with another app on your phone or a subscription to worry about there are a lot of trainers providing free HIIT workouts online
