Overindulged over the festive period and want to get back into shape but need a bit of help getting motivated? Or, do you have your fitness routine down already but feel like there’s something missing?
What is Aaptiv?
Everyone knows that it can be difficult to talk yourself into actually going to they gym more than once a month or to go for that run. And, if you prefer exercising at home or don’t use a personal trainer in the gym, it can be even harder to really push yourself.
That’s where Aaptiv comes in. It’s an app (available on iOS and Android) filled to the brim with audio workouts that have been perfectly paired with hand-picked playlists giving you the motivation to keep going, just when you need it.
Audio workouts mean you don’t need to keep checking the screen to see if you’re doing it right. You can just let the trainer guide you through, giving you the freedom to really focus on what you’re doing.
So, how does Aaptiv work?
It couldn’t be quicker or easier to get started. Just set your goal then choose your favourite types of exercise and music. You can then take your pick from the audio workouts that have been specially selected for you.
All of the workouts are tagged as beginner, intermediate or advanced so, you’ll find something to suit you, whatever your experience level. And you can work your way up the levels as you improve too.
Each workout is synced perfectly with a hand-picked playlist made up of the latest music and is guided by a fully certified trainer, giving you a motivational boost, right when you need it most.
What types of exercises are there to choose from?
From outdoor and indoor running, strength training and rowing to yoga and meditation – there really is something for everyone. And, that’s not all.
