However, that had to change in the last year, and well, so did my mindset.
Of course the first thing on my list to work out was getting the right gear, more specifically, the right clothing. I mean, obviously.
Luckily, I found these aahhhhmazing leggings from Born Tough. And whew, they are exactly what I am looking for both my athletic-leisure dress code of working from home, as well as when I actually am working out. They pretty much check all of my boxes:
✔️Soft but flexible fabric
✔️Contoured so they feel great on my body
✔️And did I mention they have pockets?
And like my hair dresser says. “look good, feel good!”
But how do you actually workout from home when you are not great at working out, but want to find some ways to move your body in a safe, effective way?
Well, finally we have some amazing options. A few of my favorite options for at home workouts:
The Tempo: This was my Christmas present to myself, and wow do I love it. With live and pre-recorded classes, I can workout with a trainer anytime I want. Not just do I have the visual reminder how to properly move, there is AI technology to correct your form which is perfect for someone like me as I am not experienced at weight training.
