    Best at home fitness apps

    This is a tough time for everyone there's no denying that. But desperate times do call for desperate measures and just because we are all stuck in quarantine due to the COVID-19 virus outbreak doesn't mean we get to slack off. (Ok we do a little bit). Perhaps it's my new found motivation since being on Trikafta... or perhaps it's because I'm stuck at home with nothing else to do... or it could simply be my narcissistic personality shining through as I pretend to be a tip-top person. Nevertheless, as I have nothing better to do i decided to try and improve my exercise regime. I don't have enough will power to do it on my own so I bless modern technology and use apps. Here are some of my favourites fitness apps that I have been using even pre-isolation:

    How I Get the Most Out of My At-Home Workouts

    How I Get the Most Out of My At-Home Workouts

    I used to be what I like to call a yo-yo exerciser. I’d go through phases where I have to work out every day (or sometimes even twice a day), and then a month later I’d mope while tying my sneakers for the first time in two weeks. Exercising was about much more than just the workout. I tend to feel a little silly doing full body workouts in front of strangers at the gym. While I didn’t completely cancel my membership, I’ve found I work out best when I’m alone. Home training in my living room is my happy place.

    Home Gyms are just better

    Home Gyms are just better

    To be really honest: How much do you like your gym? Not really that much? No wonder – over 30% of every Gym members never actually go to the gym. That’s not all just down to them being unfit or couch potatoes. Most of us just don’t really like gyms. They are crowded, noisy, the music is hardly to everyone’s taste and the showers... well let’s just not talk about the showers.

    Building a Plant Strong Body

    Building a Plant Strong Body

    You stocked your fridge with tofu and oat milk, added in a workout regimen, but you still are frustrated with your physique. Let’s start with the good news: embracing an (unprocessed) diet rich in whole grains, vegetables, fruit, beans, legumes, nuts, and seeds gives you a huge advantage. This lifestyle will fuel your athletic performance, help your muscles recover quickly, and remove unhealthy saturated fats and cholesterol from entering your body. If you just care about healthy weight loss without any consideration to muscle, athletic performance, or aesthetics, you can stop here. Weight loss will happen seamlessly. However, if you want to tack on some lean muscle or sculpt your body, some extra planning and knowledge is warranted.
