Need an extra push? Freeletics could be your new personal trainer — and you don’t even need a gym.
Some people stick to their workout plans like clockwork, hitting the gym at 7am sharp every morning without fail, while others need to chop and change plans constantly just to squeeze in a super-fast home session.
Whatever your style, there’s no denying that a little help can go a long way when it comes to workout ideas and motivation.
A personal trainer isn’t for everyone — you need set amounts of time and money to commit to it — but it’s a great feeling to leave the thinking to someone else and just lace up your trainers and get on with it.
The Freeletics app provides tonnes of high-intensity workouts suited to your needs and goals, and you can even do it without leaving your house.
The sequence here is Freeletics’ Thanatanos workout. It’s super simple and requires no kit at all — so there are no excuses. Sorry!
