Workouts from Home

After creating a list of home learning resources for the kids, I figured it was time to create a list of home workouts for me…

Fitness Instructors on Instagram


There are quite a number of fitness instructors on Instagram doing live workouts. Here’s one that I’m following: @yipingteo and this is a sample of one of her live workouts that we’ve done:

Booth popping

I never used to think much of workouts with resistance bands but I will never again underestimate them. It was tough! Definitely a far better workout than the water bottle weights I was initially using.

Here’s another one – Sculpt Club:


Youtube Workouts

App Workouts

Fun Stuff

These are the interim programs that we have on hand. I try to use them when I feel like reaching for that chocolate bar out of boredom rather than any real desire to eat. They provide a welcome distraction, a bit of family bonding (when we play together), and they’re so fun, you don’t feel like you’re working out.

Now, over to you… What other programs are you using to stay active during this period?
