One big positive to come out of lockdown is the value of online and mobile training methods. Here is a short list of some favourites our ASICS FrontRunners have found fun and functional.
FOR SOME FUN DANCE CARDIO
My sister and I have been doing some of Megan Roup's 'Sculpt Society' workouts. She offers 10- to 15-minute glute, ab and core workouts (among others). It’s been nice to incorporate into my training - Mariella Sawyer.
FOR TARGETING A SPECIFIC AREA
I started using the Asics Studio app which helped me with exercises that focus on any part of the body I want to work on - Tsepang Sello.
TO TRACK YOUR RUNS
I’m using RunKeeper, it’s easy to use (for planning and tracking runs) and responds very quickly so you don’t have to wait long for GPS signal etc. I personally like the voice coach whilst you're running which motivates you, tells you the overall pace and current pace, that’s a personal touch makes it for me - Themba Madima.
FOR A QUICK BODY-WEIGHT WORKOUT
I use the SWEAT: Kayla Itsines Fitness app.I love the workouts, they are fast and easy, but perhaps the best part is that it is all body-weight concentrated - no need for any equipment - Vicky
I have been doing Yoga Health & Well Being/Model Yoga on Channel 178 at 6:00/7:00&16:30. These for me have been a real healer. It’s a combination of strength training, stretching exercise and it increases my mobility - Khomotso Mokgonyana.
I have been using Down Dog, focussing on yoga as I have found this to really benefit my running. Previously, I haven’t always managed to get to a yoga studio, and had found a few online classes but I was never blown away by them. This app is user friendly, professional, and it accommodates for everyone from beginners right up to an advanced level. It also allows you to choose your yoga style, any areas/positions you would like to focus on, the instructors voice, the duration of your yoga practice ranging, and the background music / sounds. Highly recommended - Tracy-Lee Dalton.
