Being a college student isn’t easy. From going to class, completing homework, participating in extracurriculars, hanging out with friends, and potentially even dating, the list is endless. I also failed to mention the most important thing and that’s taking care of yourself and your body. So, while your schedule might become a juggling act, The Sculpt Society’s (TSS) collaboration with Dormify makes staying active a little bit easier.
Whether you’re a little gym shy like me, or only have a couple minutes between classes, this new collaboration has a variety of workouts from arms, to abs to, even dance-inspired cardio. This new workout series also takes into consideration dorm-style living, so if space isn’t in ample supply, you still won’t have an excuse to skip leg day. Sorry, someone had to say it!
When creating this program TSS founder, Megan Roup, reflected on her own college experience where she struggled with body insecurity that ultimately led to obsessive thoughts about food and exercise. Having survived this battle, she wanted to create something she wished she had back then; an empowering program that emphasized health, strength, and most importantly a positive relationship between the two.
Getting a hold of this new workout essential is easy. First, download The Sculpt Society app and grab that 1-week free trial. Post-trial, you can get a 30% discount found only on the Dormify site for any of the TSS membership packages.
Once you’ve got that all figured out, grab your yoga mat, put on some ankle weights, type “Dormify” into the search bar, and get started with the intro video.
Now comes the easy part, pick a workout to try. If you’re indecisive like me, that’s no fear, pick two, or three, or all of them.
I put it to the test, too.
I won’t lie, when I saw that the videos were all less than 10 minutes, I was skeptical if I was really going to get a good workout in. But, news flash, I actually did. Megan is not fooling around, y’all: While she wants us to get into a routine that includes moving our bodies, she isn’t going to coddle us doing so. Seems too good to be true, except this time it’s too good and very true.
While Megan jumps into business right at the beginning of the video she also includes modifications for each exercise in case you’re injured, just starting your fitness journey, or simply want to be a little more comfortable. The workouts on the app are as follows:
- Quickie Arms
- Quickie Abs
- Quickie Booty
- Quickie Legs
- Quickie Dance Cardio
I also have to mention my favorite feature which is the calendar function – I know, so type A of me. On the TSS app, you can schedule any video for any time and set a reminder to get ready for your upcoming workout. So whether you’re planning on a quick sweat sesh after class, or in between studying, you won’t ever forget to take a couple minutes for yourself.
Now, I tried out the entire routine, and I must say that the Quickie Booty workout is definitely my favorite. These quick workout videos have become a part of my daily routine, and I’ve found they make the best study breaks. Not only do I get in a good workout that leaves my muscles feeling a little shaky, but I get an endorphin high that leaves me feeling ready to take on the rest of my day.
I believe that the reason behind why you’re working out is just as important, if not more important, than actually working out — so I love that this program is centered around creating routines to get movement in, rather than strictly for vanity purposes. I also love the fact I can still move my body on the days when I don’t want to leave my room or don’t have enough time to commit to going to the gym. I must admit, this might be my new fall favorite.
