Stuck at Home? Don’t Let Your Fitness Goals Take A Backseat

smartphonesshop.com.au - With COVID-19 taking the world by storm, seeping into every nook and cranny of our society, we're all bound to feel scared, unsafe and uncertain about the future to come. It even feels like we are in an alternate universe doesn't it? In a time like this that is full of anxiety, a little exercise can actually make you feel a lot better both physically and mentally.

In fact, this time of self-quarantine is the best time to squeeze in some extra workouts. We know how easy it is to wake up late, skip workouts, eat crap, and stay in pajamas all day, however it can take its toll, with work outs needed to  stay healthy and get in shape. As many of us find ourselves indoors and with limited or no access to local gyms, there are plenty of apps available that can help you do just that. We've rounded up our three best workout apps to help you stay fit and keep your workouts interesting. Get ready to get fit like never before!

NIKE TRAINING CLUB

According to Glamour, The Nike Training Club app promotes itself as the "ultimate personal trainer," with more than 185 free workouts included, from sessions for strength,stamina and even yoga with Nike Master Trainers guiding you along the way. The  App Store editor's notes state that each lesson can be taken on its own, while also featuring month-long structured programs for better results. You can choose workouts that don’t require any equipment, especially if you never purchased any weights. While there are obviously parts of the body you can work better with equipment (hello, back muscles!),  for people who don’t want to pay for exercise equipment, this is an ideal alternative. Also, if you become overwhelmed with all the options, the app offers regular suggestions, and the more you log in to workouts, the more these choices are personalised, so get ready to get sweaty!

FREELATICS 

With the Freeletics app, there are Hundreds of workout exercises covering different muscle groups and levels of fitness all of which are designed to use your body weight as your training equipment with audio and video guides  including step-by-step instructions for your workouts. While we are forced to self-isolate, we might reach the point where the novelty of Netflix, games and video calls will start to wear off. The good news is, you can use this opportunity to improve your fitness goals with this highly recommended app. By using your body weight to exercise, it integrates running into specific programs and the UI of the app makes it intuitive giving you plenty of programs to choose from. It's such a great motivaton tool that it even gives you challenges and records your progress to survive. Go for it and survive your self-isolation!

STEEZY STUDIO

STEEZY delivers a wide variety of dance classes and workshops from beginners to advanced dancers. If you're a bad dancer, STEEZY will have you moving like nobody’s watching while getting fit at the same time. The app has the same quality of teachers as in a professional class. It's easy to jump and repeat sections, which is great for going at your own pace. Besides, by the time lockdown is over you’ll have the moves like Jagger ready for when your favourite night spot reopens. Don't forget to turn up your favorite music with  wireless speakers! Self-isolation can take you away from the gym, but it shouldn’t stop you from busting out some moves and keeping fit at the same time. Definitely worth a shot!

In the end, we would like to thank you for doing your bit and staying indoors! May we all stay safe, sane, and find deeper empathy for others through this shared experience. We'll all get through this soon enough!
