We welcome you to the NEST blog – the place and space for us to share words and wisdom about the topics most important to you, when thinking about insurance, health and wellness and other important things when it comes to living and leading a happy and healthy life.
Smart thinking, this week we’ll be switching things up a little to focus on the technology that’ll make a difference to your bottom line, literally, as we’ll reveal our favourite fitness apps, keeping you focused on your health and wellbeing.
One of our favourite sayings here at Nest, and hopefully you would have seen this pop up on our Instagram is “Health is Wealth”. If you’re a client of Nest, you’ll already know just how much we value health and wellbeing. We also believe strongly that what we do, in providing bespoke advice for bright futures, is directly linked to finding a love for looking after oneself and one’s family through the health and wellness.
Get up, get going – nothing beats breaking a sweat. So let’s beat any of that winter excess with a few healthy recommendations as we approach the summer season.
Daily Yoga puts you on the mat, no matter where you are. With more than 50 yoga classes and 400 poses plus the music to match it, this is a fantastic app to keep you focused and fit while you’re on the move. Beginners, intermediate and advanced – no worries. The app covers Hatha, Vinyasa and Ashtanga at different levels of intensity.
GPS-based, this app here is all about releasing a few endorphins throughout your day. Tracking almost any distance-based activity, Endomondo has you sorted when it comes to keeping fit, on the run.
600 activities comes together to map progress on this incredible app. From cycling, yoga, gym workouts to cross training, Map My Fitness is voted as one of the world’s best. Map your route, records your activities, log your food intake and share with friends – with this one, you’re on the right track.
Don’t let location stop you from starting. Bring high intensity workouts into your day, no matter where you are. Innovative high-and low-impact options, ranging from 10 to 22 minutes plus voice commands will keep you motivated to succeed.
With MyFitnessPal, you get the fastest and easiest-to-use calorie counter around. This is pretty awesome, give it a whirl.
We hope these help.
Ready to roll? As a yoga instructor, I look forward to sharing more insights and advice along the way – offering a few learnings from the mat and life out and about in New Zealand.
