“As you guys know, I’m obsessed with Platefit. It’s 27 minutes on a vibrating plate. It’s amazing for the lymphatic system, keeps me in shape, and allows me to squeeze in a workout in between my busy schedule of work and kids and life!” — Sam, VP Brand Partnerships
“I’ve been working out with a trainer via Zoom for about two years. My best friend found him in a park, and we’ve been doing semi-private group Zoom training sessions with him ever since. I love it because I get to work out with my friends twice a week and not leave my house, ha. So it’s social and stress-free, and he’s always making each session different by personalizing the workout for each person. He does a lot of strength training/kettlebell workouts, so it’s nice to incorporate this with walks/hiking, Pilates, and yoga that I do on my own.” — Jess, Brand Partnerships & PR
“Pilates has been my go-to over the past 12 months now. Shout out to LoveforPilates in West Hollywood! This fabulous reformer studio has really helped me change my habits and get into a regular fitness schedule. Grateful for all the challenging, de-stressing sessions that have focused on total body conditioning. I’ve spent so much time there, it almost feels like a second home.”— Alexa, Executive Content Assistant
“I am still learning to love my body (in all its stages), and to be confident in group settings, so classes haven’t been my favorite as of late. But I recently got an Apple Watch, and I have been loving low-impact movements. My watch tracks everything and keeps me motivated, so I will try to do two to three movements each day. I like to take a 30- to 45-minute walk with my pup in the morning. And in the afternoon, I will walk about 10k to 20k steps on my walking pad, which I purchased from Amazon. Then in the evenings, I like to decompress with a workout “class” from the Fitness+ App that is connected to my watch. I typically do something like yoga or a mindful cooldown that involves stretching and guided meditation.
“I’ve found that even though I loved weight training and lifting, I have seen faster results with my body through these low-impact movements. I am slowly working weight training back into my routine, but I feel more fulfilled with the low-impact movements. Once I feel a little more confident, I would really love to consistently go to some kind of Pilates/yoga class each day. But for now, these work great for me and allow me to multitask when on calls or work through tasks at my desk while walking. I really love Jonelle, the instructor on Fitness+. She has such a calming presence for an end-of-day reset.
“Sharing the links to the walking pad and some of my favorite “classes” to do at home.
“I love these movements because they work for me and my busy schedule, as well as the limited space I have currently. The walking pad has helped me multitask and still be active on days where my digital work load keeps me busy. I especially love the feeling of walking outside in the mornings, and I have noticed that on the days where I don’t go on my outdoor walk, I don’t feel as energized or motivated. Little movements make a big difference for me. and I feel that everyone could benefit from some sun and fresh air!” — Madeline, Brand Manager
“My favorite workout classes are The Class, Melissa Wood Health, The Pilates Class, and Pvolve—all for different reasons.
The Class: I love it because it’s truly a mind, body, and soul workout. It’s both an emotional and physical workout. I love the energy of the class and the playlists.
MWH: This is mat Pilates. I’ve been doing her workouts for years. I love her energy and the wide variety of classes offered, scaling from beginning to expert, quick workout to intense workout.
Pvolve: It’s an amazing, full-body workout using props that you can do at home.
The Pilates Class: A great and impactful full-body Pilates workout.”— Lindsay, Marketing Manager
“For the past several years, I have been doing high-intensity workouts. I definitely overtrained, and it led to burnout. I was feeling like a failure because I just couldn’t do the workouts I used to. While I recently discovered cozy cardio, the latest workout that I’m actually excited to do is Pvolve.
“I love that it’s low-impact and focuses on functional movement. I feel like I’m getting stronger, and I look forward to getting on my mat in the morning. It also helps that the bands are comfy to wear, and the equipment is pretty darn chic. It’s helping me change my relationship with my body for the better.” — Allie, Wellness Editor
“I was never really into indoor cycling, but when I did my first class at Vessel, I was hooked. It’s obviously all about finding an instructor that plays amazing music and really motivates you. Vessel’s owner and instructor Stephanie Chapel is always inspiring and makes the 45-minute sessions feel like a highly choreographed dance class, but on a bike.” — Shannon, Content Director
