Yoga has been around for centuries and has seen an increase in popularity over the past 2 decades. There have been countless yoga DVDs and books released, but never has yoga been more popular than now…
All thanks to Alo Moves. This online fitness website has made yoga more ‘cool and hip’ than any predecessor who attempted this before. There probably isn’t a bigger or better yoga training website than Alo Moves, at the moment.
And they deserve all the accolades they get.
For starters, there’s a wide variety of fitness programs within the Alo Moves membership to choose from. Compared to other fitness websites such as Beachbody, Alo Moves is a little pricier at $199 a year (currently). Though you occasionally might find it on offer for $100 a year.
However, the variety of programs justifies the price and is actually value for money. The classes are placed into 4 categories:
In the yoga category, you’ll find yoga series that go from beginner to advanced. The fitness category has strength training, Barre, Pilates, core sculpting, HIIT and much more.
Another interesting feature of Alo Moves videos is that the workouts are also categorized by intensity and difficulty. There are 4 levels of intensity. 1 is light and 4 is high intensity.
Difficulty levels are categorized into:
There’s something for everyone here. Beginners will be able to find workouts to build a solid foundation on. After that they can move on to the higher intensity and more difficult workouts.
One point to note about Alo Moves workout programs, is that unlike conventional workouts which everyone can attempt to some degree, there will be some workouts that you absolutely just can’t do.
These are usually the intermediate and advanced programs that require a lot of training and practice to develop your strength and balance. Then and only then will you be able to execute these moves.
One example would be Dylan Werner’s ‘School of Arm Balance’ where you’ll be doing yoga poses such as crow, eka pada koundinyasana, grasshopper and so on. While Dylan executes them beautifully and his instructional videos are about 10 to 15 minutes long, it can actually take you months to achieve these poses effortlessly.
So, you’re in this for the long haul, if you wish to be proficient in these moves. If you’re trying to lose weight, stick with the HIIT programs in Alo Moves.
To build strength, you can try ‘The Limit’ by Josh Kramer or Core Sculpt by Ashley Galvin. Barre Strong by Emily Sferra is very challenging too.
Spend 2 or 3 days a week on the basic yoga videos. Yoga Sweat by Briohny Smith is great for this. So is ‘Yoga For Beginners’ by Patrick Beach.
Once you start shedding the excess pounds and your core is strong, your yoga sessions will become more rewarding. With time, you’ll have a high degree of flexibility and balance. You’ll truly develop an understanding of how your body innately moves.
You can then move on to the intermediate and advanced yoga videos. That’s when the real fun starts.
There are many workouts by different trainers on Alo Moves – more than any other fitness websites out there. Dylan Werner, Ashley Galvin, Josh Kramer, Patrick Beach, Adrienne Kimberly, Jacy Cunningham, Briohny Smith and much more are experts at what they do.
You are spoiled for choice and will definitely be able to find a trainer who resonates with you. They look good, sound great and the instructional videos are excellent.
This is one fitness membership you can’t go wrong with. It has everything from strength to cardio to flexibility. If all you did was workouts from Alo Moves, you’d be fit for life. It doesn’t get better than this.
