Salvere Blog: Getting the Most Out of Fitness Videos

by Salvere Health and Fitness

Peloton, Beachbody or any other recorded workout (or even a live one with limited personalized guidance) or virtual workout provides a great resource for convenient exercise options. How do you know if the program fits your body, life and needs?

You take charge of your routine. Simply because the instructor says do it, you always hold on to the option to choose something else.

Listen to your body and be present throughout the workout. What feels like a stretch? What feels like a strength challenge? What feels like it gets your heart and lungs pumping? Does a movement feel not quite comfortable or cause pain?

Pick an option that fits what your inside body feels like that day and time. Framework with flexibility, remember? Take 5 quiet minutes prior to selecting your video to really tune into what feels. Work to suspend what you think you “should” do or what someone else told you to do.

Think through what kind of time you can set aside and what would balance out your movement from the days prior to the days ahead.

Finally, start to develop a sense of curiosity and playfulness with your movement time. What feels and where? Does your right leg feel different then your left? How about your hands, where do you notice the pressure?

Think about how to develop a child like sense of curiosity with movement. Pick something that you might not normally do. Challenge yourself to do something because you want to not because you think you “should” and get in touch with your intuition. Let us know how it goes!
