Do you love the idea of staying fit but don’t always feel like dragging yourself to a fitness club to get your fix? Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could stay at home in your comfy clothes and still get a fabulous workout?
Welcome to the world of online fitness where you can banish your jiggle or shake your booty in an online workout class. With a simple subscription that’s usually much less than a gym membership, you can workout at your own convenience and pace. No more running to catch a class. Of course if you love the camaraderie you find in a class, by all means go for it. But if you want a workout you can do while traveling or away from home, this is the way to go!
Most classes can be streamed from your iPad, Roku, laptop or TV. I love it! Wish I’d done this research sooner. Grab a friend or your honey and get fit together, keep each other going. If you’re on your own, you can get as sweaty and loose as you want.
