Our favourite apps and websites to keep you fit and mindful while self-isolating


August 2020 Paxus

GUEST OPINION:  How can we all stay active with indoor and outdoor gyms now closed, and our daily routines completely thrown out of whack as a result of the pandemic?

Thanks to technology there are still many options available to help keep our heart rates pumping, our limbs flexible and our minds clear. On top of that, a lot of these options are now free or cost very little.

So, the team at Paxus has put together a list of some of the apps and websites we’re currently using. It’s also important to note that many of our local gyms have also gone online. If you can, we also recommend supporting local businesses by continuing online memberships.

Chris Hemsworth’s Centr has workouts ranging from 20 to 40 minutes and includes HIIT, boxing, yoga, strength training, MMA and so on. He is also now offering a free six week trial to help people stay fit while self-isolating. It’s available on the web, iOS and Android.

Down Dog
All of Down Dog’s apps are now completely free until the 1st May in response to the Pandemic. Choose between Yoga, Yoga for Beginners, HIIT, Barre and 7 Minute workouts. All apps are available on the web, iOS and Android.

Keep It Cleaner
Keep it Cleaner are now live streaming workouts via their Facebook and Instagram accounts for free. Offering HIIT and strength, their workouts require no equipment and are broadcast every Wednesday and Friday mornings.

Headspace wants more people to experience the benefits of meditation anytime, anywhere. Learn the essentials of meditation and mindfulness with their basics course for free, followed by a paid subscription model. It’s available on iOS and android, as well as the web.
