I don’t know about you but I find it extremely hard to commit to a gym. It’s not just the motivation, but also the fact that I am never in one place long enough to ‘get my gym on’ on a regular basis. I’ve failed miserably at subscribing to several gyms when I was at uni and also when I moved to London, so a new found app called Esquared has got the solution to help a girl just like me.
The Esquared app lets you get fit on demand, no strings or memberships attached. It’s as simple as click and go whenever you want, even if for just one class or session. There is no monthly fee, just a one off cost to enjoy a gym/fitness/yoga sesh near you, and trust me it’s amazing.
The app works around Greater London to help you book onto a class or gym floor with minutes to spare, I booked mine 15 minutes before arriving at the Quad Health Club and Spa inside the Crowne Plaza Hotel. You can also book in advance too, but the idea of the Esquared app is fitness on demand, and that’s usually for the fast-paced lifestyle!
Paul and Alice set up in the hotel bar and enjoyed coffee and crackers while I went off to work out. I say work out lightly, as my body is still quite fragile and I wanted to work myself slowly into some cardio. I started off stretching on the gym ball- something I’m very familiar with since becoming pregnant.
I then decided to head over to the cross trainers to do a simple 15 minutes mixed with high and low intensity. It seemed so much longer than I remembered it, but with TV screens and a beautiful window looking out onto the docks, I managed it. I burned about 85 calories which was a lot more than my body has been used to burning, so I felt happy with my little triumph.
I went back onto the floor to continue with some ab and core training, I had picked up a lot of my moves from previous Pilates and Pole Fitness classes back when I was living in London full time.
Sufficiently sweaty, it was time to change and get ready for a more relaxing scene…
I was so excited to find a gym, health club and spa with the Esquared app that I never would have discovered before. This one is located near Royal Victoria, so really easy to get to from where we are, even though we live outside of London.
Getting fit on demand with Esquared is the way forward for me along with home exercise. Would this app suit your lifestyle? Find out more on www.esq2.com and download the app for Apple here and Google Play here.
