The last 6 to 8 months has been a whirlwind and I’ve had to figure out ways to adapt my health routine to a new schedule and lifestyle. Back in December I moved to be closer to a new job I started just a few months earlier. Just prepping for the move (never mind actually moving) really sent my stress level through the roof. Working full time, trying to settle into a new home and keeping up my current health routine just wasn’t possible.
Stress, and unpacking boxes coupled with snow days from a harsh winter meant that my exercise really suffered. I was barely going to the gym which was really unusual for me but I knew until I found my new routine I needed to look for other options. That’s when I started googling gym alternatives in the hopes of finding some workouts to do at home.

I stumbled upon Aaptiv and started a free trial. In the past, I saw ads on my social media accounts for the app but I was really in sync with my previous routine so I didn’t need to look into it at the time. Plus, I thought that since I do know how to put my own workouts together then paying for an app seemed like a waste of money. Let me tell you, paying for this service is anything but a waste of money. I was facing a choice, either continue on my current path of very little exercise and feeling bad about it or take a chance on something new.
