There’s nothing like self isolation to discourage you from working out. We all say that Summer bodies are created over Winter but with motivation fading, it’s easy to skip your usual workout here and there and fall into a pattern of sleep-ins and early evenings snuggled up on the couch.
Thankfully, you don’t need to find the motivation to get to the gym or run your usual route with these at-home workouts. You don’t even really need to find the motivation to get out of your PJ’s because your living room is as far as you need to go.
Online fitness classes and mobile apps are creating take-home gyms that allow for flexible and completely customisable workout routines. You can choose the amount of time you spend working out, which day you do each class or workout, and with so many available, there’s bound to be something to suit everyones goals. Also, whether you’re using them instead of the gym or as a top-up to your existing schedule of classes, they’re super affordable.
One of my favourite apps for working out, the Nike Training Club (NTC) allows you to customise a plan over a number of weeks choosing how many workouts you do a week and whether or not you use equipment. The workouts vary in time and difficulty with some various focuses including strength, stability, endurance and it evens includes runs and yoga.
