sportskool As I write this, I’m onto day 5 of nursing my 9 year old, who is home sick with the flu. (I posted earlier this week if you’re in the same boat as me and want to see how I’m nursing him – What You Need to Help Your Kids Get Through the Flu.)  I didn’t want my fitness routine to suffer and I had hubby around over the weekend so I could scoot out to get a couple of workouts in.

But Tuesday it was back to work and our regularly scheduled program, with the exception of sick kiddo on the couch, which means I can’t leave the house.

I dressed for a workout and decided to check out what was available OnDemand with my cable provider (Verizon Fios).  I have previously resorted to doing workout videos at home this way, because sometimes you simply just can’t get out the door.  But modern technology means we have no excuses!  There’s always a way to find a workout at home via some form of technology – be it Netflix, your cable provider or something else that you can stream online.

My favorite video?  This series of videos from Sportsskool that I can get On Demand.  This video here is my absolute favorite – it’s a 43 minute Kickboxing workout and it’s a WORK OUT.  I definitely sweat well and feel like I’m getting a decent workout with it – and better yet, no extra props required!  You just need yourself and some good workout duds.

Fun, right?

And if Kickboxing isn’t your thing, Sportskool has yoga, aerobics, weight training and more. You can get it on Demand, on Amazon video, Roku and more. Check out the full listings of way to workout with them here and don’t let being stuck at home be an excuse! And if you can find them On Demand, it’s FREE…

    Home with a sick kid today too, and can’t fathom doing the elliptical again, so I think I’ll give this a try, thanks!!!

  2. Whitney, thanks! I couldn’t have said it better myself! I work at Sportskool and you’re right – nothing beats work-outs on YOUR schedule. And Sportskool makes it easy, fun and never boring!
