The 3 Online Workout Programmes Everyone Needs In Their Lives
Because it’s possible to get super fit without even leaving the house.
You want to work out, but the gym is always packed, it’s chucking it down with rain so you can’t go for a run and the thought of doing sit-ups in your bedroom is soul-destroying. It’s a ‘sack off the workout and stay in bed’ kind of day, isn’t it? Well, it doesn’t have to be. These online workout programmes will help you stay motivated and get the ultimate sweat on, all from the comfort of your own home.
If you’ve been anywhere near the internet in the last few years, you’ve probably heard of Shaun T. He’s the workout mastermind behind Insanity – the full body conditioning workout that’s crazy hard but crazy effective. Now, he’s bringing back the old school step class in Transform:20, but don’t go thinking it’s an easy ride. This six-week programme features a 20-minute step class, six days a week, and will have your heart racing with intense cardio and bodyweight exercises like squats and push-ups. This is far from the 80s step classes your mum used to do – it’s fast-paced and loads of fun, and Shaun T keeps the energy going throughout. All you need to do is log on to the Beachbody On Demand online fitness platform, grab a step and get going!
