Whether you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you’ve undoubtedly seen me posting about my Gixo workouts; you’ve probably seen me waking up early for a Gixo workout, jumping in for quick afternoon sweat sessions, and sweating with friends both near and far.
So what’s Gixo all about, anyway?
Gixo is an app that offers live fitness classes, hosted by professional trainers, who are there to help you stay motivated and guide you through various workouts (from running / walking, tabata, strength training, and more!). While class is in session, your trainer has the ability to track you, give you input on your pace and interval times, and help you meet your goals with quality instruction and personalized motivation. Plus, you can choose to have your camera on for breaks and check ins with your coach and you can message and send encouraging emojis to your fellow class participants while you workout. It’s so fun, so motivating, and you’ll never feel like you’re working out alone again.
Why I LOVE Gixo (and think YOU should too!).
I’ll be totally honest here, before Gixo I had never met a workout app that I truly liked (and I’ve tried tons of them). For me, what truly sets Gixo apart from the rest is the human connection. Even if I’m working out totally alone, I feel so connected to others when I’m using the app. I love that I have the ability to message my coach and friends during the workout, and that Gixo coaches provide real-time and totally personalized feedback as I move.
While using the app over the last several weeks for the #IAmLimitless challenge I’ve noticed my motivation levels changing. I went from feeling kind of sluggish, frustrated with my changing body, and unmotivated to getting up before sunrise to join early morning Gixo walk/ runs, and in general, just back to feeling good again.
And since running has been…well different…during my pregnancy, Gixo has been a real lifesaver for me. It has helped motivate me to keep getting in miles – whether walking or jogging – and has reminded me that moving, however you can, is better than not moving at all.
Plus, they have workouts literally all day long so it’s really easy to find something that fits in with your schedule and allows you to squeeze in a workout whenever you can.
