Is cabin fever setting in? Are those lockdown calories beginning to pile up?
Then it is time to take back control from your own living room, garage or garden.
Vīrya is a mixed strength and cardio, total body - arms, legs, core - online workout comprising 37 exercises for 37 minutes, non-stop. Plus a warm-up and cool down either side, all professionally programmed. Commit to the workout and you are sure to get the heart thumping, blood pumping and the calories torched.
No equipment is required, but everybody has two tins of beans and something heavy (a 4 pint milk container, laundry detergent bottle, a large rock from the garden, a child). Dumbbells, kettlebells and mats would be ideal if you have them, but are not necessary.
The Pilates Channel
Don't let coronavirus and self-isolation keep you from getting and staying fit, healthy and active.
As indoor group exercise sessions are no longer available, The Pilates Channel provides an opportunity to work out online from your own home.
No equipment is needed. A mat may be helpful for various reasons, but it is not essential.
The classes are targeted at beginner-intermediate level, but with progressions and regressions available to ensure that everybody can get what they want from the workout, taking into account any physical limitations they may have. The Pilates Channel also provides feedback and support for all questions and discussion relating to the workouts.
Both Vīrya and The Pilates Channel feature a different, pre-recorded class each week. This is so that you can choose when you want to do the workout according to your own timetable and commitments.
Subscription to Vīrya or The Pilates Channel costs £6 per week or £20 for four weeks.
Both Vīrya and The Pilates Channel are private Facebook groups. The invitation to join is sent once payment has been received and removal from the group occurs if the subscription is not renewed within 48 hours of being due.
If you do not use Facebook, then the weekly workout will be emailed directly to you during the subscription period.

"I was worried it would not have quite the same feel and that I would just forget to do them. This has not happened!
The online class is still great. Olly talks through each exercise making it easy to follow, keeps a good flow going and manages to correct my posture even though he can't see me.
