Need some inspiration to get healthy? Here are some of my favorite apps to help you achieve your goals:
Nike Training Club
Great for: strength, cardio, mobility, workout planning
Why I love it: A ton of free workouts! This app offers a number of sessions ranging in length, focus, and equipment. There are videos that show you how to do the moves, and they offer some full classes led by instructors. It also has pre-made programs to follow, which are great if you need some structure to your workout schedule. During COVID they are offering all the programs and classes for free.
Great for: Finding local trails so you can get outside
Why I love it: Outdoor exercise is a great way to get blood flowing, reduce stress, and calm your mind. This app helps you find local trails that work for your fitness level. It includes directions to the trailhead, trail maps and reviews about people’s experiences on the hike. It’s a great way to get out and explore nature.
The Mindfulness App
Great for: Calming your mind through meditation
Why I love it: This meditation app is a mix of free and premium (paid) content. Many of the meditations are between 5-10min, so easy to fit into your day. It has a section on Corona Resilence, which is especially important right now. It also has content related to specific topics like meditation for beginners, stress relief and sleep.
Les Mills On Demand
Great for: At home workouts
Why I love it: The variety of classes keep workouts from getting boring. The app subscription includes strength, cardio, HIIT, cycling, yoga fusion, and dance. I like to mix up body combat (cardio kickboxing), body pump (strength), body flow (yoga fusion), and throw in a little barre or grit (HIIT). They do have some free classes you can try, and they have a 30 day free trial.
Great for: yoga.
Why I love it: It has yoga for everyone from beginner to advanced. The variety of teachers and styles of yoga are what keep me coming back. The app also offer pilates and fitness classes, mediation, and some original series and documentaries. It’s a great way to relieve stress in your body and mind.
