OK mommas, busy women, women on a budget, women who travel, or anyone who just doesn’t want to go to a gym to work out – this one’s for you! Let’s chat for a minute about FitnessGlo – my new favorite thing!
First off, what is FitnessGlo? It’s a website that has online fitness classes that range from 5-45 minutes and cover all things cardio, strength, and stretching. The instructors are some of the best in the business and the classes are never boring. It’s $12 a month for unlimited classes, with new ones being added all the time – compare that to the outrageous gym memberships out there and I think you’ll see that this is a complete STEAL when we’re talking about working out!
For some time now I’ve been working out from home. It all started as a way to save money because we’re on a tight budget and I just don’t want to spend that extra cash when I know I can get results just as well from my living room. At first I totally hated it, was really lazy, and made tons of excuses as to why I didn’t want to work out at our house, but after we had Weston I knew that if it didn’t happen at home it wouldn’t happen at all. So I started working out regularly in our house (or outside on beautiful days) and I really don’t know if I would ever go back to a gym. It’s convenient, I don’t have to worry about germy children’s areas, and there aren’t annoying people who don’t understand gym etiquette hanging around. While I do miss taking yoga classes, that’s about the extent of me missing the gym.
HOWEVER. On the days when it’s hard to be motivated, or Wes’ naps are off, or we’re busy or we’re traveling – for me, this is where FitnessGlo fits in perfectly. They have tons of classes with varying degrees of difficulty and timeframes, so if it’s a busy day or I just want to move for a few minutes they have me covered. If it’s an active rest day and I don’t want to go on a walk, I can jump online and take a 30-minute barre class instead. Since I’m as white as they come with my dance skills there’s no way you’d find me in a dance class with other people who could see me – but I’ve done 2-3 dance classes a week since I started using FitnessGlo, and my knees are thanking me for it.
Another thing that I love is that the instructors are doing the moves with me (us). I know that sounds really silly to some, but I haaaaaaaaaaate when I am doing a workout video or something and the instructor is just standing there talking. It makes me think that they didn’t really plan out the workout with the user in mind; but every FitnessGlo instructor does the moves with you and they do it with a smile (sometimes a wince!) on their face the whole time!
FitnessGlo offers an 8-week customized jump-start program to help you get a move on your routine, plus ways to track your workouts and make sure your routine includes a balance of strength, cardio and stretching.
