Now that summer is just around the corner and the days are getting longer, you may find yourself wanting to get back into fighting shape. Many of Blueground’s turnkey furnished apartments are located in buildings with state-of-the-art fitness facilities, but what if you’re looking for a holistic health solution? We want everyone who stays in a Blueground apartment in one of our 14 global markets to live their best life, so we’ve partnered with 8fit, a top-rated health and fitness app.
8fit combines tailored workouts, customized meal plans, meditation, and guidance on self-care so that users can feel better inside and out. More than 30 million people have downloaded the app. This is no surprise, since this app is basically like having your own personal trainer and nutritionist right on your phone.
All Blueground guests are eligible for three free months of 8fit Pro, the top-tier version of the program that offers complete customization of your workouts and meals. Here’s a look at everything 8fit has to offer.
The 8fit app has too many different workout programs to count. While they’re all a little bit different, it’s worth noting that most are pretty short. That’s because 8fit is built around the principle of high intensity interval training (HIIT).
This approach (which is sometimes also referred to as Tabata) pushes you to your absolute limit, but only for a short time. In many cases, a thorough 10-minute HIIT workout burns as many calories as a 30-minute jog.
8fit Pro members also have full access to the app’s workout collection, which includes core-focused workouts, pilates, and yoga, in addition to HIIT workouts.
8fit even lets you customize your workout soundtrack! The app’s Feed.FM integration gives users access to a wide variety of dance, hip hop, indie rock, pop, and R&B music. You can even pause your workout to see information about an individual song.
In addition to helping you track your fitness progress, 8fit offers health and wellness tips right in the app’s dashboard. You’ll also find more than 800 healthy recipes, enough options that there’s truly something for everyone.
8fit Pro members can specify their dietary preferences. Even better, the app will automatically recommend meals for your breakfast, lunch, and dinner each day.
If you want to keep it simple, select the Meal Plan option, which will let you prepare your food ahead of time. (The only downside is that you will be having the same meals several times in the same week. That’s unavoidable, since this approach is all about saving time by cooking ahead.) 8fit’s nutritious recipes are quick and easy to follow, and you can even generate your grocery shopping list right within the app.
If you’re an 8fit pro subscriber you’ll also have access to the app’s sleep meditations. These soothing 5- to 15-minute tracks will help you off to dream land after a long day.
Are you convinced yet? In addition to high-tech extras like Smart TVs and fast Wi-Fi, all of our Blueground apartments in 14 cities are individually designed for real life. You can live, work, and work out all in the same space, giving you total flexibility and comfort.
