Working out at home on your own can be a struggle. What exercises to do, what equipment do you need, and let’s not even get started on motivation. Home workouts can be a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
I used to take various workout classes to keep fit. From HIIT to barre classes and everything in between, I liked variety in my workouts to keep them fun and interesting. But when COVID hit, I had to drastically change my fitness routine.
Now I have to do my workouts at home and boy, did that come with a whole new set of challenges. Not only did I have to workout, I had to decide what equipment to use, create my own workouts routines, self motivate, then do it all over again to keep things fun and interesting.
I recently discovered the iFit home workout app and it’s been a game changer! iFit offers interactive virtual workouts with a personal training twist. They have routines you can use alongside your fitness machines like treadmills, or exercise bikes, as well as routines you can do without fitness equipment as well!
iFit is a unique home workout app with a nearly unlimited range of workout programs led by more than 100 world-class trainers. Their workouts are made for both on and off your fitness machine and you can easily access it from your phone, tablet or TV.
The variety of the workouts include studio classes of all kinds and guided machine workouts for treadmills, exercise bikes, ellipticals, rowers, and more. These classes are both on demand and live so you can access them at your convenience.
iFit can also connect to your machine to automatically adjust your resistance, incline/decline and speed depending on the machine you are using creating a really immersive experience.
Plus, many of the workouts take place in exotic locations that allow you to virtually travel for your workout. The iFit trainer leading the workout delivers everything from coaching guidance to a historical tour of the location and more. This is ideal for those who struggle to stay motivated as you can learn something new and explore somewhere different each time you exercise.
Here are a few screenshots from the iFit home workout app. The first screenshot shows just a sampling of the huge selection of classes they have. The 2nd screenshot shows a few of the classes I’ve signed up for this past week, with a live Barre Cross-Training class, yoga class and a running class that take place in Thailand! The last screenshot gives you and overview of the class, so you know how long it will be, how many calories you’ll burn and the intensity of the workout you’re doing.
My iFit Home Workout App Experience
The iFit home workout app has been such an upgrade to my at-home training. The app is super easy to use and I love the variety and diverse range of studio classes available.
I don’t have any fitness machines, but I do have weights, bands, and some other exercise equipment available. But regardless if you have any equipment or not, there are classes for everyone at every fitness level.
The iFit workouts are interactive and fun, and the locations where they take place provide an escape to being stuck at home. So far, I’ve loved all the trainers, and they provide a studio class format to working out in the comfort of my own home. I also love how their workouts come in the form of series, so you can help to focus on your fitness goals.
In addition, the ability to plan ahead to create a schedule of workouts helps me to better commit to exercise regimen. Plus, the live workout option reminds me of the fitness classes I used to take, and reduce the procrastination factor since they’re at a set time.
For anyone who works out at home, iFit is great app to help you get in shape. The classes are fun and well designed with a nearly an unlimited variety so you never get bored.
For $18.99 a month, the iFit subscription is cheaper than any gym membership and allows you the flexibility to do workouts you love in the comfort of your own home. If you’re interested in trying it out for yourself, they have a 30 day free trial!
