Workouts at home: the new game changer

Getting into working out can be quite hard. Especially, if you are like me, who has hated sports for my entire life. Once, you get a taste of it, though, you won’t ever want to stop. If you don’t like crowded gyms, are shy, and don’t know how and where to start your fitness journey, then working out at home is your new BFF.

Achieving your goal of getting in the best shape and having that hourglass figure, takes time, dedication and work. LOTS of work. Add to that the disciple that you get on you start your journey and the results will come for sure.

Working out at home is easier than it looks, once you get the hang of it. You just need a matt, a pair of dumbbells, a little bit of space in your home and you’re good to go.

However, if you’re a beginner, you may be wondering: “Ok, but how do I plan the workout?” or “What do I begin with?”. Here’s where I come to your rescue.

If you can’t afford a personal trainer at the gym or online you can start following online trainers who post workout protocols on Instagram. Just note on a piece of paper or on your phone the workout you want to do, then set a timer and start.

One of my absolute favorite trainers is Danielle Pascente. Of course, she has her own business. But her workouts are no joke and give you the results you want. She is the best when it comes to HIIT and strength protocols. Have I mentioned that her workouts are free? Yes, free. You can find them on the FitOn app.  

Another trainer on my top list is Kenta Seki. He never misses when it comes to working out. Count on him to give you a good cardio session that makes you sweat.

The next one is Breann, another trainer that knows exactly what she is doing and can make you smile even through the pain during the workout. She knows how to put you and a good mood and if you think low-impact protocols won’t get you results, then you should try hers and you’ll be amazed.

Another option is to actually use workout apps that have designed and created for different programs such as HIIT, Cardio, Strength, Pilates, etc. These could come in handy as they offer you a big variety and don’t get bored of repeating the same routine.  

This brings me to m next thing on my list: the FitOn app (this post is not sponsored btw). I’ve tried many training apps in hopes of actually getting in shape and changing my lifestyle but the majority of them failed. Simply because they were too boring. Don’t get me wrong, the exercises were just fine but, I felt like something was missing.

Have I mentioned that they have a range for beginners to advanced? So, they got you covered.

When you go to the gym, you go to the machine you want to use, blast music through the earphones, and start doing your thing. That’s if you already have a bit of experience and know what you do.

The start of your journey

If you are at the beginning of your journey, you’ll need some guidance. Someone can explain how to do the exercises, and the protocols and help you with your posture. That’s where this app helped me A LOT.

The workouts are in video format, pre-recorded, and the trainers work at the same time with you. They give you tips and, honestly, it feels as if they are right next to you, home. They try to motivate you to push through till the end.

From personal experience, eight months ago I couldn’t’ even run or lift a dumbbell, or go up the stairs. That changed with hard work, consistency, and a healthier diet.

Healthy Eating

You can also find meals and other courses on the app, you have to pay for them though. There are nutritionists who try to educate and make us understand how a healthy balanced diet can help us for the better.  

Meal Planning

You can workout with your friends too, but this feature is available for the PRO version.

If you are at the beginning of your fitness journey, I recommend trying home workouts. They never miss and can do wonders for your body. The benefits of these are endless and once you start, you’ll feel different in your daily life. And hey, you can do them if you have a busy routine with a job, or have kids, or if you are a student. It saves you some time.

Movement is medicine and twenty to thirty minutes a day can improve your mood and make you feel better.

This post is not sponsored in any way, shape, or form. I just wanted to share what helped me change my lifestyle and become a better version of myself, in hopes that other people who need help will give it a try as well.
