Pick an app that fits your workout needs. If you want an inspiration, it's easy to find online or on your smartphone.

For it's a hibernation season like no other; it's colder and darker, and you're still inside. Which makes it all the more important [and all the harder] to keep yourself moving.

As 2021 begins, here are some ideas to get you out of the house, or at least off the couch for a bit.


A widespread running boom began in the spring as many people returned to the simplest exercise; one foot in front of the other until you've spent an adequate amount of time away from your seemingly shrinking home.

If you need incentive to get back outside, or back out on the treadmill, try an app like Nike Run Club or Asics Studio that offers free, guided runs. These are usually accompanied by music and a coach supplying instruction and motivation.

Both apps have runs runs runs for beginners and more advanced runners looking for speed workouts or intervals. A little extra motivation can go a long way.


Miss biking outdoors and not looking to buy a stationary bike? You can purchase bike rollers or an indoor bike trainer, allowing you to safely ride your outdoor bike indoors.

Add an app to make things more entertaining than staring at your living room wall. Rouvy has virtual routes and challenges like riding the Ironman Australia route, complete with elevation maps and video from the course.

You can also join a virtual world and rise with Zwift, with live'' rides in which you can join athletes from across the globe. Rouvy charges $12 per month, while Zwift costs $14.99 per month.


iF you are looking for a no-frills yoga class that feels like it's tailored to you, look no further than Yoga with Adriene, from Adriene Mishler, whom Thee New York Times Magazine called ''the reigning queen of pandemic yoga.''.

On YouTube, Mishlker has created free yoga for writers and yoga for chefs yoga for runners and yoga for travelers, yoga for equestrians and yoga for surfers, and a recent video titled ''Yoga for When you Feel Dead Inside.'' She also has a 3--day yoga ''journeys.''


Sure, you've heard of Peloton's bike and treadmill. But the company also has a slate of classes and programs on its app for those looking to stay in shape at home without a big investment in hardware.

You can sort through strength programs for those that require specific equipment [classes that use resistance bands, for example] or choose ones that require no equipment whatsoever.

The app offers a $12.99 monthly digital membership.

Peloton is one of the largest and most established players in the at-home fitness industry, and its teachers understand the challenges of working out wherever you can find the space.

It's not uncommon to hear an instructor remind participants to find a spot where they can stretch their arms out safely, without knocking anything [or anyone] over.
