While it’s easy to simply lounge on the couch and binge on your favorite shows right now, self-care is especially important during this time. Exercising and physical fitness are important mechanisms for staying healthy and managing stress and anxiety.
Exercise can help boost your immune system by flushing bacteria from your lungs, raising your temperature, and increasing your white blood cell circulation. All of this works to help you fight off infection. Even though you can’t get to the gym or hit the streets, several online apps are available to help you get your cardio in while you’re stuck at home, including Aaptiv.
Aaaptiv offers thousands of audio-guided workouts and classes that you can do in the comfort of your own home. The best part is that new workouts are added weekly. With Aaptiv, trainers talk you through proper techniques, encourage you, and give you tips. If you have equipment at home, such as a treadmill, elliptical, or rowing machine at home, Aaptiv has audio workouts to help you achieve your fitness goals from the confines of quarantine. No equipment at home? No problem! Classes and workouts are also available for yoga and other forms of cardio that do not require equipment. Simply plug in your fitness goals and get recommended workouts and classes to help you reach them.
One of the unique features of Aaptiv is that once you start using the app you’ll get Weekly Mixes which are workouts the app curates based on your class history. Normally, Aaptiv offers a free 7-day trial. However, with COVID-19 forcing us to stay indoors, they have extended their 7-day free trial to a full 30 days. After the trial, the app costs $14.99 per month or $99.99 a year.
