I like to move it, move it. We like to move it! We departed the city last week to seek shelter in New Jersey. Adjusting to working from home and staying fit without a gym was quite a shock. We have been running outside (keeping social distance) and using P.volve’s streaming services. P.volve is a safe, functional movement-based method that elongates muscles and builds strength. We are excited to share how we stay fit with P.volve at home.
What is P.volve and How to Stay Fit at Home?
Since our gym is closed for the foreseeable future, we created an at-home routine with P.volve. P.volve focuses on targeted toning and small movements. The exercises are low impact with high intensity. P.volve has 18 workout series. We’ve been streaming their services for six months and we have taken classes in their Soho studio. We recently completed P.volve’s Summit 60 Challenge and now we’ve moved on to other workouts in the App.
How the P.volve App Works?
If you are new to P.volve, check out our first and second posts. There are over 200 on-demand workouts in the P.volve app, ranging from 15-60 minutes. You can select workouts by length of time, type of required equipment and area of focus. We like to stream the app to our TV.
What is P.volve’s Proprietary Equipment?
P.volve has a variety of proprietary equipment that amplify their exercises. Consider the Essentials Kit, which is currently on sale and includes the P-ball, P-band, resistance ankle bands, ankle weights, and gliders. For a more advanced workout, consider the Total Transformation Kit, which includes the Essentials Kit, plus light dumbbells, p.3 trainer, slant board and foam roller. If you have hard wood floors, we recommend the glider gloves (so you don’t scratch your floors). You can also modify the workouts if you don’t have any or all the equipment.
We recently added the p.3 trainer and slant board to our repertoire. The p.3 trainer uses resistance training to engage hard-to-reach muscles while the slant board increases muscle activation, strength and flexibility.
After 6 months, we have noticed that the P.volve exercises increased our muscle definition, improved our posture and increased our hip and shoulder mobility. We like that the P.volve exercises target hard to reach muscles, the instructors are easy to follow on the app and the exercises nicely complement our high intensity interval training routines.
As people work to practice social distancing, it’s important that they are still able to focus on their mental and physical health. We believe in community and we believe this is a time when everyone needs to step up and do what they can to help each other.Rachel Katzman
