Being stuck at home does not mean that exercise needs to go out the window. Yes, we may not be able to go to the gym or take part in our favourite sport, but there are plenty of ways to stay fit while we wait until we can once again pick up our clubs, squash racquet, cricket bat or head down to the local sports club for a game with the lads.
With us all having to adopt technology more than ever, there are plenty of online options when it comes to training at home. This isn’t only important to stay lean and feel good about yourself - being fit is key to staying healthy.
So, declutter that room at home you never use or the area in your lounge and make space for an area to keep fit in.
Here is a list of a few online training options which are mostly free.
Six online workout options
Nike Training Club
While stuck at home, running around the garden several times can all add up to a sizeable distance. This app tracks your route, running time and has a few other features. If you are a runner at heart, then this app is great to track average speed for when you can hit the road or mountain again. A chap called Ryan Sandes recently ran 160km in laps around this house in South Africa. What’s your excuse! It’s available on Android or iOS.
Yoga is a great way to get fit while clearing the mind and spending some time on mindfulness. Down Dog is offering the app at a free subscription during the lockdown period. Available on Android or iOS.
Working out can take different forms. Meditating and practicing mindfulness is an essential part of your physical and mental health. This app helps with guided meditations. Available on Android and iOS.
