It’s no secret; I’m a big advocate for fitness, and seriously getting those endorphins flowing. It helps boost my mood, it helps me keep in shape; and it helps me burn off excess physical energy.
For me, not exercising for a few days is the equivalent of hanger. And I also get hangry… it’s not a great combination!
Keeping fit in a pandemic
I was a bit lost when the first lockdown got announced, and so I walked loads. As in loads. I knew I needed to do something different because walking was going to get pretty boring, pretty quickly. Variation was key. And this is where my new-found love for FiiT came into play. You workout from home, the workouts are varied, and they’re different which makes them enjoyable. I actually have fun.
How FiiT works
I average 4-5 workouts per week which include cardio, weights, and yoga. It’s important to do a variety of workouts, and that’s what I enjoy about FiiT; they offer individual workouts or specific programmes with key benefits or areas of the body to focus on.
One of my favourite programmes has been their Push/Pull and each session focuses on different exercises. They also don’t let you forget to warm up and cool down, so unless I’ve chosen a ridiculously advanced class, I never get those horrible DOMS*.

Home vs Gym
For me, FiiT workouts really feel like I’m in an actual gym class plus the benefit of tracking my heart rate, reps, and calories burned. So regardless of gyms re-opening, I’ll be continuing with my home workouts; Thanks to the range of workouts I do, I’ve massively changed my body shape over this past year, and have increased both my mental and physical strength.
For that, I couldn’t be more thankful to FiiT for getting me through lockdown and emerging as a stronger person.
