When it comes to fitness, there’s nothing to be afraid of.
The thought of exercising can be scary, but it doesn’t have to be that way. On the Switch & Co app, there are plenty of non-spooky activities that are suitable for beginners, like stretching, dancing, or simply lying around (they call it ‘shavasana’ or ‘corpse pose’ in yoga—how fitting!).
If you’ve been dying to find something new to try, here are five activities on the app that Team Switch recommends:
Stretch by Energy Kingdom
Stiff as a zombie? Book yourself into the Stretch class at Energy Kingdom, where deep stretches will help improve the flow of oxygen and blood in the body to relax muscles, increase range of motion and flexibility—just what you needed to stay moving!
