With a date now set for gyms to re-open (12 April) we are sure, like us, you’re counting down the days until we can all train together once again. Our new 1Life Plus membership is a great option to get the best of both worlds - train together in centre or at home alone using the Wellbeats online workouts. We’ve pulled together our top picks from the Wellbeats programme, which contains over 500 awesome online classes, which you can access whenever and wherever suits you.
With such a fantastic range of fitness sessions on offer, it can be hard to know where to start when it comes to choosing your perfect workout. We’ve collated a few of our top Wellbeats picks.
