It’s no secret us Gold Coasters love hitting the gym, so we’re all dealing with the news that our favourite sweat studios have had to close as part of the government’s new lockdown measures.
So now as well as trying to figure out where the next roll of toilet paper is coming from, we’re now also wondering how we’re going to get our assess into shape in our own living rooms!? Coz seriously, the couch teases me. It’s going to be hard.
The good news is – there are options, with a few fitness fams revealing new online programs or beefing up existing ones to get us through the dark patch.
We’ve gathered a few different options together, in what’s about to be the newest fitness fad: online sweating.
F45, the cultiest of cults.
It’s no secret that those F45s will whip you into shape and quick, though we’re also extremely aware of the cost to the hip pocket for the pleasure.
Though as the world wide fitness phenomenon tries to keep up with our rapidly changing times, it’s launched an online version of it’s workouts for just a fraction of the price.
For just $10 a week (instead of the usual $66) you can have access to the high intensity interval training that the world’s gone mad for.
And you can do the workouts right from the comfort of your own home!
2. Hollywood-hotstuff Chris Hemsworth’s ‘Centr Fit’ app
Chris Hemsworth’s once again gone above and beyond to prove what a generally nice person he is and a total saviour in times of crisis. See, Thor.
He’s announced that his extremely successful online training and wellness guide ‘Centr’ will now become extremely accessible for those struggling with cash at the moment.
You can grab six weeks FREE of his app (usually $20ish a month), which gives you access to some of the trainers, chefs and coaches he’s used himself.
Pretty sure there’s some decent shirtless footage of ours truly to just drool over if you’re not really after the workouts.
“Centr was founded to make health and happiness accessible to all, and I hope that this will make that access even easier during the current global health crisis.
“I think now more than ever is when we need to focus on what I believe to be the 3 key pillars to living healthier and happier- movement, nutrition, and mental fitness,” Hemsworth says in his Instagram post.
Please stop giving us reasons to stalk you Chris, but thanks.
