Welcome to Workout Wednesday!
Over the next few weeks, CuddlyNest will be working with several trainers to show you some workouts you can do anytime, anywhere. Whether you are staying in a hotel room, working out from the couch, or have access to your balcony or terrace, we’ve got you covered.
Benefits of Working Out:
But first, let’s get down to the real reason why we should even exercise in the first place. While it may seem obvious, working out has many benefits on top of good physical health, weight loss, and boosting your energy. According to Healthline.com, these are some of the top benefits of exercising regularly.
1. Workouts can improve your mental health:
Exercise allows your body to release endorphins which allows you to feel a greater sense of happiness and well-being. Hundreds of studies have proven time and time again that exercise lowers the risk of depression and anxiety.
2. Exercise is great for your muscles and bones:
From building bone density to mixing in the right amount of protein, exercise allows your muscles to build and grow stronger.
3. It can help improve quality of sleep and relaxation:
A study, shared by Science Direct, shows that by doing 150 minutes of moderate to vigorous exercise a week, can improve your sleep quality by 65%.
Now that you know the benefits of adding exercise to your everyday routine, it’s time to get started with workouts from our trainers.
Meet Our Trainers:
Practice Yoga and Daily Asanas with Anna Paloma from Barcelona, Spain:
Yoga allows you to connect your body and mind forcing you to live the present moment. It increases your concentration and creativity and allows you to disconnect to connect again better with yourself, like a reset.
Yoga makes you conscious about your breathing, relieve stress, and improve your posture. It is the perfect workout to realign your spine after a long day of sitting in front of a computer. Most importantly, yoga will make you stronger physically and mentally, and you can practice anytime, anywhere.

Full-Body, No Equipment Needed with Leon Zielaskowski, from Berlin, Germany:
No equipment? No problem! You don’t need fancy weights and or a full gym to work out your whole body. All you need is yourself. When exercising your legs, arms, and core, it is important to focus on the isometric movements and that will strengthen the region you are working out. By focusing on specifics areas and muscles you can increase your intensity and efficiency based on what feels good for you.
You can also try your hand at compound movements that target full areas at the same time. For example, rowing trains your back, biceps, and arms. The more muscles you work out, the more calories you burn. You have the power to set your own goals, and we’ll help you get there.
