Why Virtual Fitness Classes are Increasing in Popularity Today
With more and more employees working at home, weight management has recently become a challenge. You no longer go out as much aside from doing groceries once a week, no longer exercise as much as you used to, and even your eating habits have changed as you can easily take out some snacks from your refrigerator. It’s all about the adjustment and finding the strong will to keep your health and wellness in shape.
The main challenge is finding virtual friends who are also mindful of their health and wellness while working at home which is why virtual groups have increased in popularity since you all target the same goal and share the same sentiments at the same time. In case you have a group of friends or your work team wants to try this out, take 5-15 minutes from your daily routine and try out some of these exercises:
Round Robin Cardio & Strength
Every cardio and strength class are different. Most groups pick a fun format for each class (e.g., boot camp, circuit training, build-ups, HIIT, etc.).
Zen Full Body Stretch
Full body stretch, including specific stretches for lower back and neck pain/prevention.
A 20-minute combination of guided gentle stretching and mindful meditation. Allows participants the opportunity to disconnect from the working mind, enabling them to re-enter the workspace relaxed, recharged, and focused.
