The Apps that Helped Us Survive Coronavirus Lockdown (And Continue to Do So)
Let’s face it, for most of us, self-isolating during the coronavirus lockdown was not easy (still isn’t). With all the time spent stuck at home, it has never been more important to continue being healthy, both physically and mentally.
Here are some of our favorite apps to help continue fighting the COVID-19 blues from home.
No gym, no problem!
Whether you have stopped going to your regular workout sessions or have decided to begin your fitness journey, there are several apps to get your body moving.
If a combination of bootcamps, running, cycling, and a little bit of yoga is your thing, then the Peloton Digital app is just for you. The app offers a 90-day trial and a collection of various fitness training classes that tick all of these boxes.
The Obe Fitness app’s bright party colors are nice to look at, but don’t let its girly vibe fool you. With live and on-demand classes, this fun app will have you training hard and dancing simultaneously.
Like to keep a close eye on your progress? Under Armour has a massive community of fitness enthusiasts and has created several apps designed to connect your devices while tracking your progress, including the Map My Walk — a fantastic app if you’re an active beginner looking to reach new fitness goals.
If your goal is to become more in tune with your mind, body, and soul, we recommend you try some of these calming apps. They help alleviate stress and bring a sense of peace and wellness into your everyday life.
