Home Workout Ideas to Keep You Moving!


As the days become shorter and nights get darker, it can be challenging to maintain our physical activity. A cold, dark walk to the car or a rainy night can be an immediate barrier to enjoying a fitness class, going for a run, or hitting up the gym. Therefore, we have compiled some useful tips, links, and apps for you to try and hopefully maintain your workout routine.



Apps


Peloton App: The best thing about the Peloton App is you don’t need to buy a fancy bike or treadmill to use it. For a reasonable monthly subscription of $16.99 / month, you can enjoy amazing class instruction for strength training, HIIT classes, indoor and outdoor cycling, running, yoga, and much more. You can attend live classes or do classes on demand anytime (perfect for a sneaky lunchtime workout). You can also pick the length, music genre, difficulty level, and instructor making it more enjoyable.


There are a bunch of cool features on the app allowing you to interact with friends, which is a great way to keep yourself accountable. The user face is intuitive and easy to use, so for the less tech-savvy folks, it’s still a breeze to figure out.


The Peloton App also has a 30-day Free Trial so you can try it out before you buy. Usually around Christmas time, they offer a 90-day Free Trial so keep your eyes peeled for that!



Nike Training Club: With access to 200+ free workouts and targeted training programmes, the NTC App is a great inexpensive way to add some variety to your fitness routine. From yoga classes to bodyweight strength training (no equipment required), you'll find the right workout for you. Follow the trainers through varied classes, ranging from 5–50 minutes. Do them at home, in the gym, or outdoors – whenever and wherever you want.

The NTC App has been rated one of the best fitness apps on the market year after year and for good reason. It is simple and easy to use, with great instruction... no critiques here, especially for a free service!



Headspace: If you are looking for a mental workout Headspace is an amazing app to learn mindfulness. It offers a wide range of guided meditation and mindfulness exercises that can be accessed anytime, anywhere via a mobile device or computer. The app's content is structured to cater to various needs, including stress reduction, sleep improvement, focus enhancement, and personal growth.


Headspace is available as both a free and premium subscription service, with premium subscribers gaining access to a more extensive library of content and features. You can also get a 14-day Free Trial to try premium features before buying.
