I've switched up my workout and exercise regime lately so that I can do it all at home. I bought a stepper machine, and use this daily for 30-40 minutes which burns around 250 calories according to the screen on the machine. I also do yoga at home, and sometimes aerobics. To use my stepper machine and do my aerobics routines, my brain requires stimulus. When I'm on the machine, I watch YouTube videos from the likes of Fleur de Force, Tanya Burr and Zoella. However, when I'm doing aerobics, some seriously motivating and thumping tunes is what I need to keep going. I thought I'd share my top 3 workout tunes, in the hope that they help you too...
Uptown Funk, Bruno Mars
Starships, Nicki Minaj
Walk This Way, Girls Aloud & Sugababes
I also have my eye on some gadgets and audio equipment that will help me to keep up my new at-home exercise programme. I need to invest in some quality speakers, as playing music from my laptop or phone speakers doesn't cut it. These Panasonic wireless speakers (ALL70T), look so sleek and almost invisible. They have Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity to playback all your favourite track lists too. I also want to get myself a fitness tracker watch so that I can get a completely accurate picture of calories burned. I like the look of the Fitbit Charge HR as it looks very discreet. It also seems to give consistent results, with these results being more accurate than those produced by a lot of other fitness trackers. Finally, drinking enough water is a serious problem for me- I basically just don't do it, favouring Diet Coke. I want this cool HYDRACOACH Intelligent Water Bottle. It basically tells you on a screen how much you should be drinking, and have drunk that day. Seeing a target written down like that should inspire me to consume more.
What are your fitness motivations?
