Getting your indoor-phins fix

 

If, like us, you've indulged a little too much recently (hey, sometimes you have to!) there are plenty of gyms and classes that have moved online. We all know exercise is a great way to help our minds as well as our bodies, so here’s what the Zipcar team have been using to get their does of indoor-phins. 

 

To Relax

Yoga and Pilates is always a winner for this, but there are thousands (or more!) of YouTube yoga videos, so how do you pick the best one? We’ve been using YogaWithAdriene – bite-size classes you can fit in through your day, with varying levels too. HotPod yoga classes usually take place in 37 degrees hot studio, but they have offered online classes (from just £1) to do at your home. Suitable for beginners to pros, they also ran a charity class on Monday 13th April to raise money for the NHS.

We can’t get enough of Aussie-born F45, and they’re doing classes online too. If boxing’s more your thing, TheBoxMethod have gone online as well – and no, you don’t need to be a pro, or have gloves at home, to give it a go.  Next - Barry’s. You either love it or you hate it. If you’re not sure which side you’re on, or have always wanted to try it but were put off by the classes, now’s a perfect time to try out the workouts at home they’re running them through Instagram Live.  Kayla Itsines – the HIT original, who we still swear by – is offering a free trial of her app. It’s a mix of HIT, resistance and circuits, and there are plenty of exercises you can do at home with a can of baked beans instead of a dumbbell.

Seen on Screen is a guaranteed mood booster! They run dance classes based on your favourite songs – from current to classics – and are running classes via Instagram Live at @schoolofsos. Ideal to dance in your bedroom to, just like you used to.  Another favourite is Frame, the London-based studio runs classes designed around making workouts fun, who have also taken their workouts online. They offer classes for Party, Sweat and Sculpt, so there’ll be something for whatever mood you’re in – and a great option to do with people you’re living with too. Class Pass is also offering up some free trials.

For the Kids

Joe Wicks’s P.E. with Joe has emerged as the saviour of keeping kids entertained and worn out during this time. But there are others out there to try too, often run by charities. A great example is the programme put together by LondonYouth, combining local and national workouts for all ages, bringing them together with #StayInWorkOut.
