Our top home workout clubs to keep you active during lockdown
Posted by admin on May 15, 2020 · Stay Home Hub
For a lot of us, keeping active and going to the gym is crucial for mental and physical wellbeing. Thankfully, there are a lot of services out there (both paid for and free) to help keep you active while you have to stay home. Here are a few of our personal favourites and ones that we can’t recommend highly enough!
If anybody wants to check out some online fitness classes whilst we are all cooped up, join the GirlsLoveFit live group! The first 3 classes are free with code GLFLIVE. They put on some really great Family Classes as well! You can create an account by visiting their website. The classes are really good fun and will definitely get you in the right state of mind for the rest of your tasks!
Joe Wicks: The Body Coach
Joe has over 250 free workout videos that cater to all levels of fitness. Due to the closure of school and gyms across the country, Joe has taken it upon himself to become the nation’s P.E. teacher, holding his ‘P.E. with Joe’ live streams from Monday to Friday as a way to keep kids and parents active during their time at home . It’s great fun and a lot of our team tune in every morning at 9am, along with thousands of others, to get their kids ready for the day and make sure that they are still active during lockdown. Joe also has workouts that are for bigger kids (adults) on his YouTube channel. Make sure you give it a go, as it’s a great way to start the day!
