Exercise improves your mood and greatly contributes to your long term health, but sometimes it falls by the wayside when we become too busy. Making your workouts as convenient as possible decreases the chances that they will be overlooked when things get crazy. The ultimate convenience is working out in your luxury apartment in Adams Crossing. In this edition of Active Living at Adams Crossing, we’ll explore at-home workouts.
Beach Body offers over forty workout programs, ranging from yoga and pilates to plyometrics and MMA style kickboxing. Each program comes with a workout calendar and meal plan. You achieve the best results when you combine the workout program and meal plans, but just the workout programs alone will boost your fitness. Beach Body is a great choice for people who like plenty of options for their workouts.
Support groups help motivate you through your Beach Body fitness journey. You simply download an app on your phone where you track your workouts and progress and connect with other people using Beach Body. Coaches make daily posts to engage the group, sharing everything from healthy recipes to motivational quotes and stories.
Another popular at-home workout program is BBG, or “Bikini Body Guide.” This program was developed by fitness trainer and Instagram star Kayla Itsines. All of the BBG at-home workouts can be done in under 30 minutes, and you only do them three times a week! Similar to Beach Body, BBG offers a community to its participants where members share their stories and fitness journey together.
What are the benefits of at-home workouts?
When you work out at home, you’re less likely to skip workouts. There’s no commute to the gym that you need to factor in to your schedule, and once you get home from work in the evenings you don’t have to leave!
At-home workouts travel with you. All you need is your laptop or your phone to play the workout videos, and maybe a mat and weights depending on the workout program you’re following. You don’t have to worry about holiday or weekend hours at your gym, and both Beach Body and BBG cost less than most gym memberships.
So what are you waiting for? Shop around for the best at-home workout program for you, and get sweating!
