As the COVID-19 pandemic has spread across the globe, many countries have issued stay-at-home orders to prevent the spread of this infectious disease. It is easy to stay in bed, wake up at noon and watch Netflix all day, but it’ll start to take a toll on your body after a couple of days. That’s why we’ve compiled some great fitness apps to make sure you stay in shape during the quarantine.
Even exercising just 30 minutes a day can do a lot of good to your body. Since you’re stuck home all day, there’s bound to be some time where you can workout. These next apps help you stay active even if you’re indoors with no gym equipment.
Seven is an app that provides short high-intensity workouts. The workouts have different goals: you can choose to get strong, get fit, or lose weight. The app trains your stamina, conditioning, and strength through different 12 individual 30-second workouts with 5-second intervals. Workouts are individually curated to offer training for a specific region of your body. While you’re training, your burnt calories are displayed as well as how many seconds are left. You can also choose different voices to guide you through your workout.
While there is a paid subscription feature that allows you to gain access to hundreds of workouts and cool features, the free version will work just fine if you just want to stay in shape during the quarantine. Best part? None of the workouts require any special gym equipment. If you need anything at all, you’ll be sure to find it laying around your house.
Even if we’re stuck indoors all day, it’s easy to forget to drink water frequently. In this hot weather, your body truly benefits from a regular water supply. Waterminder is a fantastic iPhone and Apple Watch app that reminds you to drink water throughout the day. The app sends your watch little notifications, from which you can choose how much water you’d like to drink. It tracks how much water you’re drinking and you can choose to see it as a complication on your watchface. The app costs $4.99, and it is a little pricy but is well worth it in the long run.
3: Daily Yoga
Daily Yoga is an app which – you guessed it – offers yoga classes to yogis of all levels around the world. There are many different classes to choose from, and the app tracks all of your progress. There is a community section that is sort of like a Facebook for yoga fans, where you can post pictures of your yoga classes and chat with others. You can play calming music directly from the app as well. The app is free to download but offers in-app purchases. This is a great app to make sure you stay sane during these difficult times. Also, you can visit their website to learn more about the app.
That’s it for today! How are you staying fit during the lockdown?
