The list of excuses for reasons why you cannot exercise just keeps dwindling – 2015 is the year that we will see an increase in people eager to keep themselves in shape, but frustrated by the limitations of going to a gym, (opening times, distance from home/work) move towards the growing number of subscription fitness websites.
So, what exactly are these subscription websites and what do they offer? A pay per month model which most of these sites employ means that you usually have a great selection of either real time or recently uploaded workouts to choose from. Take your pick from yoga, to kettle bells to the more intense Insanity type workouts. You can access these workouts on demand in the comfort of your home, hotel, office (!) and more often than not, no expensive equipment is needed. In addition to this, you can benefit from a plethora of benefits offered such as meal plans, nutrition advice and some sites streaming live classes give you, the member, the benefit of postural correction/encouragement via your webcam.
Convenience is the key
Convenience is the key to these workouts. Most of these fitness sites offer anything between 10 and 60 minute routines which are done by trained and credible instructors so you can pick what fits your schedule, this negates the rather timely occupation of scouring the web for the free workouts – many of which are done by unqualified instructors. Most people would agree that even 10 minutes of working out several times a week means the benefits are going to outweigh the downsides.
No intimidation factor
Another great motivator for using these online workouts is that there is no intimidation or fear factor. Going to try a yoga class can be extremely daunting – especially when you feel like you may not be wearing the right clothing or haven’t been able to touch your toes in decades….doing the workout at home means that you can give things a try, laugh and all in the comfort of a daggy old tracksuit! Stay at home Mums who are struggling to regain a level of fitness can work these workouts around their children – see, I told you there were really no excuses now not to exercise!
Home workout is affordable
Saving money whilst getting fit is a bonus – the online workouts coming in cost wise at considerably less (usually between £15-£30 per month subscription) than a monthly gym membership. Time saving is another bonus as well because there is no time taken getting across town to the class that you like. On these subscription sites the online workouts are being updated constantly – more often than you would get at any gym and this saves the boredom factor kicking in. For people who like to plan and do the live classes – there are schedules with weekly slots for specific classes – but thats not to make things stressful – as if you get late you can just pick up the class later or even on another day.
