If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it’s that we can enjoy a great work out in the comfort of our own home. In fact, it’s never been easier to access an amazing workout whenever and wherever suits you best.
Whether it’s via online streaming, subscribing to an app, tuning in on your TV or attending live session on social media, keeping fit at home is proving to be more and more popular, thanks to the rise of on demand fitness.
What is on demand fitness?
On demand fitness are sessions you can access at any time of the day, meaning you can choose when you want to workout without having to commit to being available to attend at a certain time.
The trend for on demand fitness shows no sign of slowing down, so even if you are a regular gymgoer, it’s useful to consider how instantly accessible online and on demand fitness can be to enhance your routine.
While holidays or trips away may not be on the agenda right now, in the current climate, working out at home has become the norm for many of us, particularly during this lockdown period where unfortunately we’re not able to welcome customers through the doors of our clubs.
Having the option to do a workout at home is also a good alternative during the winter months when going for a walk, run or cycle may be more difficult due to the dark nights or bad weather.
But without having an instructor in front of you – in person - how do you keep your sessions interesting and motivating on your own? Here’s how on demand fitness can help...
Find out what’s available
Here at 1Life, we want to help you make the most of your membership and to feel connected to us even when you can’t visit in person.
Part of that includes being able to access a wide range of on demand classes through our 1Life Plus package, so you can enjoy the energy from your favourite workout wherever you are.
This unrivalled online workout programme includes over 500 classes split into different category channels, which you can access on your mobile device, computer or TV; making it easy and convenient to find the workout that fits your lifestyle.
A wide range of content is included to cater to your interests and fitness goals. For example, if you enjoy strength training, the bar strong or kettle power classes could be the perfect option. Or for something high energy, why not try a fast-paced circuit training workout?
There are also short, sharp options such as our Express 20 minute sessions; perfect if you’re currently juggling working from home and home-schooling, as they are an effective way to still get your workout in - even if you’re pushed for time.
Members can also gain access to Myzone online workouts, where participants are able to enjoy the experience complete with an instructor and see each others’ real-time effort feedback on their screen.
This is great if you miss the competition and motivation of working out with others in a class environment.
As well as fitness, you can also explore the Wellbeats Nutrition Channel through 1Life Plus, where you can find healthy recipes, nutrition education, cooking tutorials and healthy food tips.
Although we can’t wait to see you back exercising in our clubs when we’re able to, in the meantime, on demand fitness is the perfect way to keep you fit this winter.
And with fitness at your fingertips, it’s never been quicker or easier to find your perfect workout. In fact, with so much choice, the hardest part will be deciding what to try out first.
