With Trudy Fitness Center being closed until further notice, I’m sure many of us are unsure how and where to workout. Are you having a difficult time picking what workout to do because there seems to be too many? Here are the top 5 fun yet effective workouts that you can stream from your room. Most of them include little to no equipment, various duration, and are super easy to follow along. The best part is you won’t be intimidated trying out these new workouts because you’ll be in the comfort of your own room. I have loved trying out all of these streaming programs throughout quarantine and hope you will enjoy them too!
1. The Sculpt Society- by Megan Roup
The Sculpt Society is primarily sculpting classes and dance cardio classes. Instructed by Megan Roup, the classes are super upbeat and so enjoyable that you will barely feel like you’re working out. I am by no means a dancer, but I love these workouts!
DURATION: 30-minute dance cardio and 30-minute sculpting are the most popular, but she has classes ranging from 10- 60 minutes
EQUIPMENT: Little to no equipment- think yoga mat, 2-3 lb hand weights, sliders and ankle weights (all optional).
PROMO: She is offering a FREE 14-day trial so you can try it and see if you like it before you commit to it.
2. Melissa Wood Health
Melissa Wood Health has a mix of yoga and Pilates workout classes as well as meditations. They are low impact and a great way to move and tone your body. Her calming presence is an amazing way to make working out feel a little bit more therapeutic.
DURATION: 8 minutes- 60 minutes.
EQUIPMENT: Little to no equipment and the props are always optional- think yoga mat, 2-3 lb hand weight, ankle weights and occasionally a chair as a prop.
PROMO: She is offering a FREE 7-day trial so you can give it a shot and see if you like it before paying for a month.
