Let’s chat about at-home workouts a little it today. I will tell you flat out right now, I hate them. Hate. Them. I lack motivation terribly when I’m working out in a little square carpeted room by myself. It’s awful.
Personally, I really enjoy the gym environment. Going to the gym for me is like a social outing. I have made many friends and acquaintances there. It’s always nice to walk in and exchange several smiles, waves, and hellos on my way to the locker room. I also know we all share a common goal – to become healthier and fitter.
However, as I previously mentioned last week, I am signed up for another half-marathon. The training has already begun, and this time around, I want to incorporate yoga into my training, at least one day a week to help stretch me out. Lord knows I do not stretch nearly half as much as I should be!
On top of a gym membership, I’m not really feeling like paying for yoga classes, too. I’m thinking Grokker At-Home Workouts , might be my answer. Grokker was introduced to me this past weekend thru Fit Approach. Grokker is basically a huge database of a variety of different workout videos. They even have healthy eating videos up there, which I have yet to check out, but am super pumped to.
I think/hope yoga is something I can do at home without needing much motivation since it’s more on the relaxing side. I will keep you guys updated on how it goes.
Fit Approach put together this fun mad lib for their promotion of Grokker, and I decided to play so here we go My answers are in the bold.
I’m so excited to rack up more minutes using video workouts from Grokker! There’s everything from yoga [workout type] to High Intensity Interval Training [workout type] for everyone from beginners to advanced, and I’m especially pumped to try Yoga For Athletes because it will make me extra flexible and stretched out [adjective].
I plan to do my video workout in my bedroom [place] before eating breakfast [activity] and after waking up [activity]. My favorite thing about video workouts is that there is no pressure [noun], and they’re a super convenient way to get sweaty when I need a change from running [verb].
My goal is to hit 700 [number] minutes this week!. I’ll do Barre HIIT [name of video] on one of my more intense workout days, and Yoga for Athletes: Prevent and Heal Injuries, [name of video] on a rest or lower intensity day. I challenge Elyse [workout buddy name] to beat my # of minutes or to do Barre HIIT [activity / video name] with me!
So now, questions for you!
1. How do you feel about at-home workouts?
2. Which video would you love to do on Grokker?
