If you're struggling to workout at home, especially if you're used to going to the gym, it can be hard to feel inspired. Whether or not you're used to working out, you can get a great sweat in with little equipment. Here are my favorite ways (and apps) to workout.
1. Nike Training Club App
I've talked about and reviewed this app for a reason, it's easy, free and you get a large variety of workouts. Most of the workouts are designed to need little to no equipment. You can sort the workouts by length of workout or by specific muscle groups you want to focus on too. It's also a simple app to use and well done.
2. Tone It Up
Tone It Up required their membership, however you get access to a lot of different features. First of all, they host live classes that you can sign up for in advance to hold yourself accountable. These live classes means you can see who is joining the workout with you and they have many of them throughout the day. If you rather not signup for a specific time slot, you can simply play one of their many recorded workouts hosted by one of the Tone It Up team members.
3. Personal Training
I love personal training, in fact, I made a whole podcast episode on my experience (click here to listen!) You may think that personal trainers are only found at the gym, however there are a ton of options for training online too! Personally, I normally meet my trainer at the gym, but with all that's going on, we have continued our weekly sessions but through Zoom instead. She still corrects my form, she has altered my workouts to fit the equipment I already own, and I still sweat my but OFF. This could also definitely be on option for you if you don't want to get a gym membership in addition to training or may feel intimidated by the gym.
4. Live Workout Classes
There are a ton of gyms currently, along with other websites that offer live workout classes with some form of a subscription. This is a great option to feel like you're part of a class but in the comfort of your own home. Choosing this option means you can signup for the types of workout you want, from a gym/site you like, and you get the accountability of being in a class. PLUS, you can easily get your friends to join the classes too and make a hangout out of it.
5. Pinterest, Social Media...
Guess what!? Working out at home means you also easily have access to the internet! This means you can easily search up various workouts on Pinterest, one of my favorite sites. I decided to share my workout pinterest board in case you wanted some right at your fingertips so feel free to follow since I update it regularly. There's also some great Instagram accounts and trainers that post various workouts directly on their feed or on IGTVs. I love Sarah's Day's as she posts workouts for the gym, at home, along with healthy recipes (plus you'll love her YouTube channel too).
Working out at home isn't always the easiest, but hopefully you find a way that works for you after reading this post. Comment below your favorite way to workout, favorite fitness influencers or who/whatever helps you!
