Online Exercise Round-Up

Staying fit and healthy while practising social distancing is something we’re all struggling with at the moment. Thankfully trainers are working to the limitations, with virtual boot camps and online yoga classes streaming in just about every exercise-lovers home at the moment. 

We’ve compiled a list of our favourite ways to stay fit while staying home to create a variety of options we can all pick and choose from to mix it up (because we all know doing the same routine is the fastest way to kill a workout buzz).

With the catchy (and very relevant) slogan ‘Find What Feels Good’, Adriene has cast her all-inclusive yogi net wide, with everyone from yoga devotees to uneasy novices tuning in to her wildly popular YouTube channel

Try her monthly ‘30 Days of Yoga’ themed challenges for an accountable way to arrive on your mat each day. Why not start with January’s challenge, fortuitously themed ‘Home’, and journey inwards to calm your mind, love your body, reflect, and create space because if ever there was a time, it is now.

Les Mills (On Demand)

The extensive library of workouts in this deservedly popular trainer’s program means you’ll never get bored of the same old routine. With sessions ranging from 15 - 55 minutes, squeezing one in between Netflix sessions (or baby naps) is easy. The programs are science-based and delivered by highly trained professionals to ensure your body is worked right and your mind is kept in the game. Choose from over 800 workouts, with dance, step, barre, and HIIT just some of the options waiting to be added to your weekly schedule. Got kids? There’s Youth classes as well for 2-16 year olds to join the fun. 

RevieJane

This beautiful soul peppers her Instagram feed with effective workouts and insightful ponderings on motherhood and life. A CrossFit babe at her core, this mama shares simple and effective strength and cardio workouts for every level to get those muscles working and endorphins flowing. Her down to earth approach and bubbly personality (along with her adorable family) make it feel more like working out with a friend than a trainer - which is a winning combination when you’re rocking the moves solo in your living room.
