I’ve never been a fan of working out in a gym.
The longest, most rewarding exercise for me as been running. But I know building total body strength is important to staying healthy while running. So I try other things, but nothing really ever sticks.
On January 1, 2017, I bought a subscription to Daily Burn because I don’t live anywhere near a gym, but I need to have the motivation and someone telling me what to do when I do strengthening exercises. I can’t make up stuff to hold my attention, but Daily Burn has lots of programs to pick from so you find what works for you.
After trying lots of stuff, I recently landed on the Barre Harmony program. It’s a mix of ballet, yoga and pilates. The workouts are only 25-35 minutes, and they change it up enough that the workout flies by. I don’t dread doing them, and I feel like they give me a low-impact, effective workout. Isn’t that what we all want?
Every couple of days, I will mix in a kickboxing class or a Cardio Sculpt class to switch it up. But I always come back to Barre Harmony.
What are your favorite ways to workout? Any workout-at-home friends out there? What programs do you use?
