Does anyone know any good apps or videos to start exercising?
Love the idea of couch to 5k but I’m far too embarrassed to unleash myself on the pavements.
Also too embarrassed to go to the gym.
So what exercise can I do at home? And how to make it less boring?!
C25K starts with a half-hour walk with some 90sec outbreaks of jogging (as slowly as you like). So I suggest you start a foundation programme for that, and go out for a brisk walk at least 3x a week.
I like the Fitness Blender YouTube channel, which has loads of different videos, of different lengths and level of challenge.
Popsugar on YouTube is awesome. They have literally hundreds of workouts of all durations for all sorts of concerns. I’ve been doing one a day for the past month and haven’t repeated one yet. And every single one has at least one person doing a “modified” version that reduces impact or joint strain or caters for an “improving” 😉 level of fitness - usually at the left of the screen.
If you have any interest in yoga I also highly recommend Yoga with Adriene - she is so lovely and again, caters for all levels of practice.

Yoga with Adrienne is good.
Does anyone know any exercise videos on tv/ Netflix?
On YouTube I like Body Project (a lot more workouts on their website buy not free), Heather Robertson and Yoga with Adriene
