It’s my most favorite time of the year. Holiday festivals, cooler weather, the decorations, spending time with family, and ALL the yummy food and treats. I know I’m not alone in this, but this time of year is also when I put on a few pounds because of all the yummy food and treats – Halloween candy, a Thanksgiving feast, Christmas goodies. I’m NOT letting it happen again this year, though! Staying fit through the holidays is easy with Gixo.
~I received a complimentary Gixo membership to help facilitate this post. As always, opinions are still 100% my own.~
What is Gixo? It’s a revolutionary fitness app that offers LIVE group fitness classes. No matter your fitness level, there’s something for everyone – yoga, treadmill, strength, running, HIIT, walking, stretching, Bootcamp, and more – and it’s right on your phone.
Gixo offers over 19 hours of live classes every day, or you can access workouts on demand if you can’t make the live classes. No matter where you are this holiday – at home, at work (yuck), traveling to see family, in a hotel on vacation, wherever – I know you’ll have your phone on you, so Gixo will always be with you too.
One of my favorite features of Gixo, is that I’m getting personal training for a fraction of the cost. During each live workout, the coach provides feedback and tracks progress of those in the session. If you’re like me, you may need a little motivation from time to time. The coach is there to help you through it.
Just think about what you’d normally pay for a personal trainer…uh, yea…this is why I don’t have one already. But Gixo is just $19.99/mth OR $179.99/yr. You could be paying way more than the annual cost of Gixo, for a month with a personal trainer at your local gym (sometimes a week). No, thank you!
October is a great month to sign up! There are so many awesome things happening and I’m ready to get started myself. First up, is the Fitcamp Express that starts on Monday, October 8th. It’s a 3 week program, with 4 workouts each week (Monday-Thursday), at 25 minutes per workout. You can commit to that, right? Four, 25 minutes sessions each week? Of course you can!
I’ve signed up! Join the Fitcamp Express for the 9:30 am slot and we can cheer each other on! There’s going to be a lot of toning, sweating, and fat burning, as the workouts take us through strength, cardio, and endurance training. And if you happen to miss a day, you can make it up by getting the workout on demand.
As you may know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. So Gixo is also hosting a Walkathon on October 20th, to benefit Bright Pink, a non-profit organization on a mission to save women’s lives from breast and ovarian cancer, by empowering them to live proactively at a young age. Gixo is donating $5 to Bright Pink for every mile walked, and you can walk ANYWHERE – up and down your street, around the office during lunch, at your local park, in circles around your yard, or even on the treadmill.
I’ve signed up and really hope you do too. I’m going to make it a family affair and take a walk with my kids and boyfriend. We’ll put the baby in his stroller and walk until we can’t walk anymore. My goal is 5 miles, which is a $25 donation (I’m the subscriber so only my miles count for donation). And if the kids can’t walk that much, it’s no problem because the miles don’t have to be consecutive. The Walkathon is 12 hours, so I can do a few miles in the morning and finish up in the afternoon!
Phew, with all this body moving fun, there’s no question I’ll keep the pounds off in the upcoming months. I say go ahead and indulge in those tasty holiday treats. Gixo is there to keep me (and you) in tip top shape! I hope to “see” you in some workouts. If you sign up, drop me a comment and let me know. I’d be happy to workout with you! If you just want to give it a try, you can sign up for a free 7 day trial.
