Working (out) From Home- Your AI Gym
As the world continues to heal, and protect, people are finding more and more ways to adapt their everyday routines from home. By now most people have become accustomed to working from home instead of the daily office commute. And while many people would stop at the gym on the way to work or on the way home from work, it has become harder and harder to make the trip on its own. Luckily in addition to easy non-equipment workouts there have many new innovative companies creating the at gym experience at home, from virtual instructor videos, to custom resistance training equipment.
Every effective workout has 5 fundamental components. Starting with a warm up. This can be anything from taking the dog out for a walk, followed by aerobics which can be a light jog or jumping jacks continued with strength building exercises, then stretching and finished with a cool down session. Depending on your fitness goals whether you are looking to shed pounds or just tone, there is different equipment you can purchase to start building your perfect at home gym.
