Why should I exercise at home?

Adding just 30 minutes of moderately intense exercise to your day can improve your health and extend your life. Exercise lessens the chance of heart disease, helps prevent diabetes, reduces the risk for some cancers, strengthens bones, and releases hormones that lift your mood and relieve stress.

And luckily, these days, with a few pieces of basic equipment, you can get a great workout at home – no need to head to the gym or yoga studio. So even if you're a busy expecting parent or an exhausted new parent, exercise is right at your fingertips.

With online exercise classes and apps, you can filter by length, workout preference, instructor, and more. And they're often more affordable than in-person classes or gym memberships.

How to choose the best app or online class for you

Read class descriptions and user reviews to see if a workout program is right for you. Many companies offer a free trial or provide sample videos before you subscribe.

When choosing an app, keep in mind that the most effective ones offer goal setting, consultation with experts, and real-time personalized feedback. It can be worth it to pay for a membership or subscription to access these features.

Also make sure the workout fits your current fitness level or offers appropriate modifications. Most important, choose a kind of exercise you love so you'll stay motivated.
