The world is virtually at a standstill during this global pandemic. What started as an outbreak in December 2019 miles away from the United States, has now become one of the biggest health crisis that the country has ever faced. As of now, more than 400,000 people have been infected in the United States. About 100,000 people have also died globally. In addition to the serious implications on people’s health, coronavirus has significantly affected millions of businesses across the world.
While businesses remain shut to prevent the spread of virus, going out to perform your daily routine seems quite difficult. If you are into fitness like me and are accustomed to starting your day by going to gym, this lockdown might be jarring. With all of them shuttering down for the time-being and rightly so, you may be worried about your fitness. Luckily, I have found some workout applications that will help you keep fit.
At $39 per month, you can get an all-access Peloton app to keep yourself fit during quarantine. You can also choose the $12.99 package that grants you access to classes but doesn’t save up your metrics. Choose the one that suits your needs the best. This app works best if you are into bikes and like cycling. Fortunately, I recently got myself one of the best recumbent exercise bike and this app works best if you have a bike.
The app comes at $39 per month with unlimited classes. It is similar to peloton but for an off the bike workout. At $1,495 Mirror is an expensive sleek device that is installed on the wall and projects a life-like trainer who will conduct a class for you. It is exactly like working out following along with a trainer that lives in the mirror. Sounds like something in Black Mirror? Surely as the workout looks straight from the future but it is really effective. You can lift weights in quarantine and have a brisk run outside if it is safe to do so, but getting an intense cardio workout in your home during the coronavirus pandemonium is a rarity.
It is one of my personal favorite workout applications. At $12.99 per month offers both exercises with dumbbells and bodyweight exercises. Charlee Atkins, a famous instructor, started this new company Le Sweat and her monthly subscription-based fitness application. She works out with you at the same time and it is really motivating to see a coach work out moves with you. About 3 billion people worldwide are under quarantine. Although it is much needed but staying at home, social distancing ourselves from everyone is something we humans are not accustomed to.
Who likes Thor? Yes, Chris Hemsworth! Well, you can’t argue, he is well into fitness. Celebrities like him are among the latest to help you stay fit from home during the coronavirus lockdown. He has developed an exercise app, Centr, which according to my opinion is one of the best available. Keeping up with your exercise regime is important especially when you are doing nothing but just sitting and lazying around the whole day. The Australian is doing his bit, you can do yours by exercising daily and following all the required coronavirus precautions.
Yoga is one of the best ways to de-stress and keep yourself fit during the coronavirus pandemonium. If you too are into Yoga, then you must have this application. Down Dog is the highest rated Yoga app on both ios and Android and the best part is that it is completely free. That’s right! You don’t need to roll up your mats and walk blocks to a studio in order to keep your body in order and mind clear.
The COVID-19 pandemic has really hit the world hard. If we don’t deal with vigilance, we may aggravate the situation. You must follow necessary precautions listed by your local health authority. Stay safe. Stay healthy.
