I have tried the gyms and joining classes to get back into or stay in shape. What it comes down to is my busy lifestyle. Sometimes days go by and I just can’t get to the gym. Then I began to stop signing up for classes because I may have to cancel. I felt like I had no way to stay in shape because I can’t get to the gym most days.
This was 2 years ago. Thanks to the internet and more app developments I can exercise without a gym and get the same, if not better, results. A workout app like Aaptiv makes it so easy to find the right work out for your individual needs whether you are a beginner or advanced and whether o not you have equipment at home.
For me, I need a program. If I have an ongoing workout that I have to check into every 1-3 days then that keeps me motivated. For you it may be that you like variety or you like cardio vs. strength or vice versa. Aaptive has it all from categories of workouts to programs at all levels.
I started the Strengthen Your Core program and as you can see by the colored checkmark all of the sessions I have done are marked and I come back every other day and do the next session until I can move onto a new week. You get music and guidance but there is no video you also have to look at. Don’t worry, Mike does a great job talking you through how to do the exercises so you can take your eyes off a screen and focus in your body and movements which gets you the most form your workout.
The cost is a lot cheaper than a gym membership and you can do your workouts from anywhere even while traveling. I have used a few fitness apps and this one stands out because of how well it is organized, the offerings of workouts laid out for all levels and the fact that you can set your phone aside and just turn the volume up and turn the screen off.
Just start by taking the fitness quiz and set your goals. You can try Aaptiv free for 7 days with no strings attached.
