My Favorite Aaptiv Trainers

You have heard me talk a lot about Aaptiv, I know, but I really do love this app! I use it almost on a daily basis and I've come to find my favorite trainers on there and I wanted to share them with you today.

These are not in any order. They each have something that I love about them.  And I know there are other trainers that I haven't even tried yet, because Aaptiv gets even more trainers all the time, that I will have to check out and let you know about soon.

Rochelle- She was the first trainer I used for running with Aaptiv.  I started really loving her while I was doing the half marathon training. She coaches the half and the full marathon programs and she's awesome at it. Then I started doing some of her strength training classes too and those are also good. She loves 90's pop music and she is so positive when she's training you.  She reminds you to think positive and gives you reminders on your form and breathing too. I also started following her on Instagram, and she has an awesome back story and she recently put out a book about how she recovered from alcoholism. She so inspiring and has darling twin girls.

Meg- Meg also does some running programs which I haven't tried yet but I want to. I started doing Meg's strength training classes and this girl can work! I am always leaving her classes feeling like I've worked hard and gotten in a great workout.  I love that Meg explains the exercises so well that it's easy to follow along.

Ackeem- You guys, he's the happiest/ most positive trainer on Aaptiv. I started taking Ackeem's strength training classes and then I realized he also had treadmill classes and I loved those too! When you're taking his class, it's like he's there with you. Sometimes I feel like he can see through the phone because the timing of his form reminders is right on. You can tell that he really loves what he does and he really wants all his athletes to be successful. He also has fantastic taste in music and has a ton of motivational reminders.

Amanda- She has great meditation classes. She even gave one for kids which have been a big help when mine are feeling extra overwhelmed. She also does some HIIT and strength training classes that are great! I love taking Amanda's classes for my at home workouts and for when I only have a few minutes. She has quick classes that get the job done.

Jess- She teaches meditation and yoga. I can't say I've ever taken a yoga class on Aaptiv, I'm just not much of a Yogi. But I love her meditation classes. Especially to help me get better sleep. When I start feeling that anxiety rising, I can turn on one of her meditation classes as I'm laying in bed and it will help me relax and release my worries so that I can sleep better. She is very calming and empowering.

Benjamin- I do Ben's strength training classes. He seems so friendly. His workouts are also quick and effective. They are perfect for those days where you need a quick boost in your energy and mood or for a great warm-up or something a little extra after a run.  Sometimes I go into a Ben workout thinking it'll be super easy because it's quick and then I realize, again, that he's kind of a beast and I might die haha. Not really, but I think you know what I mean.

There are so many others and some that I haven't even tried. Aaptiv is the perfect app for moms who don't feel like they have the time to go to the gym or who need something they can do at home to help their fitness, mood, and self-esteem.

    1. He's so great! I never leave his workouts with out feeling like I did my best and ready to start the day!

  4. That's awesome! I've seen all the ads for Aaptiv, but never tried it out.
