Why I LOVE FitOn

I don’t know about you, but I would never workout if I had to go to the gym. For one thing, I live about an hour away from the nearest one! But even if I lived closer, I still wouldn’t go. It is too easy to just drive by after work and think about how tired I am or how much stuff I HAVE to get done tonight. I also have a hard time working out using my own regimen or equipment. I lose focus or decide one move is too difficult, so I move on or skip the workout altogether. But then I found this workout app called FitOn.

FitOn

I absolutely love this app. I have tried other workout apps and meal apps, but FitOn by far is my favorite. First of all, it is cheap. You can use the app for free and get great workouts. With the free version, you can’t download workouts or access their meal plans. Since I don’t have internet at my house (which has been the worst, best decision of my life), I went with their PRO plan. It only costs $20/year, so really it was a no-brainer! I mostly use the app for their workouts, but I have also found some great healthy and easy recipes.

Workouts

They offer a variety of workouts for all areas of the body from different trainers. The workouts range from easy, low-intensity stretches and yoga to high-intensity cardio burns. Most of their videos are geared towards beginner and intermediate skill levels. One of the best things about FitOn is their workouts range from 5 minutes to an hour. So if you’re feeling rushed (or just lazy that day, which is usually me!), you can pick a 10-minute workout. If you have more time and want to go hard, you can choose a 45 minutes workout. Or combine two, three, four different videos. You get to customize it to what you need that day!

They offer a wide variety of workout selections!

Meals

FitOn also offers meal plans. You fill out a little questionnaire, and they set up a nutrition goal for you. This plan comes with recipes, advice, and ideas based on your plan, as well as the meal plan itself. In the advice section, they not only go into nutrition, but they also cover wellness. This includes mental and physical health. I don’t use the meal plan as much because there isn’t any way to download and save recipes. But I have tried a couple of them, and they have a great variety of recipes for all diets!

Upgrade to pro to get a customized meal plan

Overall, FitOn has been one of the most user-friendly workout apps that I have used, and I am definitely in love! They provide easy to use workout videos (complete with a trainer!) and meal plans that are all based on your fitness goals. This is the perfect app for us busy women because they make it so effortless and doable! What apps have you used and like the most? Do you have any advice for those of us who struggle to keep a regular workout schedule? Comment below!

Introduction to Health and Wellness

In the Health and Wellness category, I’ll share what I do to stay healthy. Keep in mind that what each individual needs to do to keep healthy looks different. It also depends on many factors, so the information I share won’t work for everyone’s lifestyle and health needs. But I hope that some of you will be able to take away something helpful. I love hearing from ya’ll, so please feel free to share your own health journeys!

Riding the range wearing Mom’s coat!

I lead a pretty active lifestyle, although how active I am really depends on the season. Winter is a slower time of the year. I spend more time doing projects inside, like home improvement projects or book work or making candles. And at work, we also spend more time in the office and less time shoveling bins or dumping grain trucks (thank goodness!). I found a great fitness app, called FitOn, that I love to use in the winter to help keep me toned and make getting back into shape in the spring a little less brutal. They have short workouts that are perfect for a busy schedule! I am much more active in the spring, summer, and fall months. I would say I spend roughly 6-10 hours a day up, on my feet moving around. I am riding horses, fixing fences, shoveling bins, and dumping trucks quite often during those months. Although, every once in a while, I can sneak onto the tractor! I don’t workout during these months since I am very active, and also, I work a lot of hours and just don’t have the time. I have to stretch all of the time, though; otherwise, I get really tight and stiff. And it is a constant, dull pain that can be avoided by stretching for about 10 minutes every day. So I still use FitOn to find good stretches and help me switch up my routine.

Hope helps fix fence too!

As far as my diet, I try to stay away from sugar, mostly. I don’t get too strict about it unless I feel lethargic or crummy. Then I’ll go on a sugar fast (which I’m supposed to be on now, but the Christmas cookies just seem to never disappear!) and try to limit sugar when I do start eating it again. But other than that, I just try to eat a balanced meal. This is more difficult in the winter because I don’t like store-bought produce. You can read more about my loathing for store produce and where I get my cooking ingredients from in the Introduction to Cooking article! Posts coming soon to the Health and Wellness category include more about FitOn and how I cut sugar out of my diet.

Happy Journeys!
