Online resources for Movement Motivation

 
Carrying on from her advice on why and how-to bring exercise into your lockdown lifestyle, fitness instructor Stephanie Wilson gives us her top five ways to access the wealth of online workout inspiration.  
 

Instagram

Since COVID-19, social media platforms have become a saturated stream of home workout inspiration and Instagram is no exception. Try tuning into a live bootcamp from @barrysuk or following a workout from the @moveyourframe IGTV. 
 

Apps

The app store is full of great tools to help you stay fit whilst isolated. Signing up to ‘Couch To 5k’ will gradually improve your running abilities over nine weeks or for something quicker you could download ‘Seven’ for a gallery of quick, sweaty exercise circuits, all under ten minutes long. 
 

YouTube

From real-time high intensity interval training sessions to chilled out Pilates tutorials, YouTube is undoubtedly the most diverse and accessible space for free, fun workout videos. Top channels to explore include Blogilates, FitnessBlender The Body Coach (a.k.a Joe Wicks) and BohoBeautiful.  
 

Blogs/Websites

A simple Google search should present you with a wealth of websites designed to aid your home fitness activities and offer structured workout routines or advice on exercise technique. For example, the Gymshark Central blog recently released an article on making your house a suitable exercise environment and the PureGym site now has an entire section dedicated to at home movement. 

 
Classes On Demand

Many of the most popular group fitness studios and brands have transferred their services to online platforms, meaning you can attend professional standard classes from highly trained instructors through your digital devices. Frame Online and Les Mills On Demand are certainly worth checking out!
