Staying Fit in Your Home during COVID-19

April 27, 2020

As the nation continues to self isolate and access to our neighborhood gym is verboten, it’s time to try some home-work-outs.    Whether you are accessing some cool new free fitness apps, a home exercise video, or have access to some exercise equipment in your home, now is the time to exercise to help relieve stress.  Some free options to try now include:

  • Nike Training Club – The Nike Training Club app, available to download on IOS and Android, helps you reach your fitness goals with expertly designed workouts from our world-class Nike Master Trainers. NTC provides free workouts for everything from bodyweight-only sessions, invigorating yoga classes, targeted training programs, and full-equipment home workouts for all fitness levels.
  • Peloton You don’t have to have a Peloton bike to take advantage of the app’s workouts, especially since they just made it free for the first 90 days. The app features a live studio broadcasts with trainers that guide you through exercises in running, cycling, strength training and exercises you can do outdoors. The live classes vary in length, and you can schedule them to fit your day. If you are a runner, the Peloton app also offers a feature that tracks your distance, pace and elevation metrics.
  • FitOn – Join celebrity trainers for guided workouts in barre, yoga, cardio and strength training. The app also features prenatal and postnatal classes for pregnant women and new mothers to also stay fit.
  • Time to Meditate – Establishing equilibrium during these turbulent times is not easy, but thankfully there are some meditation apps available that can help like Headspace.  To help support you through this time of crisis, Headspace is offering some meditations you can listen to anytime. These are part of a larger collection in the Headspace app — free for everyone — called Weathering the storm. They include meditations, sleep, and movement exercises to help you out, however you’re feeling.
