I love to find new workouts to do. There seems to be an endless number of them available on the internet. When I came across Fitness Blender I was really excited.
What is Fitness Blender?
Fitness Blender is a an online fitness and health community that was started by Kelli and Daniel Segars (husband and wife). They have both been in the fitness industry for a long time and wanted to help others get fit too!
There site includes a ton of free workout videos to choose from. If you want to search for specific kinds of workouts you are able to filter your search in regards to difficulty, body focus, which trainer you want, training type, duration, equipment needed, and the amount of calories you want to burn. This makes it so much easier to find the video that is right for you on that particular day.
Although the bulk majority of the videos are free, there are also some workout programs they have put together that are for purchase only. They range in length from 2-8 weeks long and costs range from $7.99-$19.99. The programs have different goals allowing users to choose what they want to focus on.
There are also interesting articles about health that one can learn a lot from. These include information on superfoods, lowering cholesterol, health food trends etc. They know that fitness is only one step in the right direction for an overall healthy lifestyle so that is why they include these other things.
In order to showcase the quality of workouts they put out, there is also a section where they post before/after pictures of some of the people that use their workouts. These can inspire others who are trying to get fit and healthy.
My thoughts on Fitness Blender
I love Fitness Blender! The husband and wife duo did such a great job building the community. The site has a wonderful layout that is easy to navigate. Also, the whole look of the site is bright and inviting.
The way that you can go about choosing your workout video is great. There are so many videos to look through so this makes it a lot less overwhelming. It is nice that they have workout programs put together at good prices but you can definitely come up with your own regimen with the free videos.
When I looked through some of the videos, I was really impressed. Just the fact that they are all free is amazing! I appreciate the calorie burn range that is on all of the workouts because I know that we all will burn a different amount.
I decided to try one of their HIIT workouts: https://www.fitnessblender.com/videos/wake-up-and-go-hiit-workout-at-home-hiit-routine. Because I am not used to doing a ton of cardio, it was nice I could find one that is not at the highest difficulty level. It was still a super workout though. I was definitely sweating which is awesome considering it is only a 16 minute workout.
So in short, I would highly recommend checking out Fitness Blender if you want to get fit in your own home. As mentioned before, there are so many workouts to choose from and you can find something no matter what level you are at currently. I will be making a regimen out of their videos in the very near future.
