Changing seasons in life call for different kinds of workouts and adjustments to wellness routines. At Lindywell, we’re all about honoring the season you’re in, meeting your body where it is, and adjusting as necessary.
My season of life is changing which is why I want to share what I’m currently doing in my workouts, what has changed, what I’m loving, what I’m struggling with, and everything in between.

Adjusting workouts during the changing seasons of life
Our workouts change throughout the seasons of life. If you have been following me for a while, you know that I’ve spent the past ten years with small children at home. If you are a busy mom like me, you know exactly what that means for my self-care routine.
While I haven’t been able to revolve my life around my workouts, I have been able to consistently incorporate short workouts into my daily routine. My goal has been to work out 15 minutes each day. Anything more has been icing on the cake.
Now that my twins are almost five, I can carve out a bit more time to focus on self-care and I can actually leave the room without being called back five minutes later!
Finding quality strength training workouts on the internet is a challenge
Pilates has transformed my body and my life. While the past ten years have been challenging for exercise they have been the inspiration behind Lindywell.
I recognized just how hard it was to fit in a quality workout which is why our workouts are so efficient and effective. If I only have ten or fifteen minutes to devote to working out, I’d better make it count.
Now that I have a bit more energy and time, I decided that I wanted to add a bit of strength training to my wellness routine. Over the past six months, I have searched the internet for quality strength training workouts, but I haven’t found any guided workouts with cues that would help me prevent injury while gaining strength.
This is why I decided to make my own. My strength training videos use the philosophy of Pilates and focus on alignment and moving with precision and control so that you can add more strength training to your wellness routine.
How to access Lindywell’s new strength training videos
In addition to an introductory video, there is a series of five strength training videos now available in the Lindywell app.
If you are over 30 that means that you are losing muscle mass each year. Pilates uses your body weight to incorporate strength training, and you can use props like our hand weights and resistance bands to add more of a strength workout to your Pilates routine.
However, like me, you may be looking to add a bit more. If so, head on over to the app to check out the new strength training series.
Lindywell is your wellness companion. The app provides everything you need to support your goals to live a healthy, balanced life. If you still aren’t a Lindywell member, you can try it out free for 14 days.
