Two Virtual Trainers Share The Most Common Home Fitness Mistakes

The at-home fitness industry has had an explosive year. Dumbells are sold out at major retailers, fitness streaming apps are reporting record memberships, and luxe gyms are sailing on troubled waters. All signs indicate that yoga mats on living room floors could be a mainstay for a new wave of fitness enthusiasts finding their groove during the pandemic.

But if you’ve recently had your first foray into home fitness, there’s also a bit of a learning curve. Certain mistakes can inhibit or prolong results, cause muscle strain, or even lead to injury. So ahead, two fitness instructors from virtual workout streaming platform Obé Fitness—Walter Kemp and Alex Scolari—share the most common at-home fitness mistakes they see among trainees.

While grabbing a post-workout ice coffee with a few pals, the 28-year-old Sports Illustrated cover girl appeared in high spirits under a black face mask.

The Most Influential Men in Fitness: Track Mafia’s Cory Wharton-Malcolm

Track Mafia isn’t a running club – it’s a community. “People don’t just come for the exercise. They come for friendship,” says founder Cory Wharton-Malcolm, “Beefy” to his friends and followers. “At Track Mafia, you’ll meet chefs, illustrators, hospital workers, CEOs, TfL workers… Everyone has a common purpose.” On Thursday nights at Paddington Rec’s athletics track, there is no hierarchy.

Orangetheory Fitness behind on $750K in rent at SoHo gym

Corso notified Orangetheory that it was in default of its lease in September; a month later it still had not received any money, it said. The rent is now at nearly $38,000 per month for the gym and will increase to $45,000 closer to the lease’s expiration, according to court papers. 

The Crosby Street location, Orangetheory’s first to get hit with a demand for back rent, has reopened. It is unclear whether the fitness company has been keeping up with rent payments at its other locations, but they are currently operating at 33% capacity. 

“The studio’s ability to operate business is still severely restricted,” said Kevin Keith, the company’s Chief Brand Officer, who called the landlord’s claims “grossly inaccurate.”

“While we and many believe these mandates inequitably target the Fitness industry, it is our intent to continue to negotiate in good faith with our landlord,” he said. “The law

This could take the form of a fitness mirror, connected stationary bike or connected treadmill. The best high-end fitness equipment also delivers access to coaching and personal training, replacing the fitness studios that were blowing up before coronavirus.

What to Know Before Buying High-End Fitness Equipment

Everyone has different requirements and preferences when it comes to breaking a sweat. Here are a few considerations to keep in mind while choosing the best high-end
