In a perfect world, we’d all have unlimited time to exercise. But, if you’re anything like us, that’s not your reality. So, we’ll let you in on a little secret: you don’t actually need hours of free time, or even a gym membership, to start (or stick with) your workout routine.
Whether you’re just getting started or you’re taking your fitness game to the next level, some motivation and instruction can be a game-changer. And no one does that quite like the guiding voices of Eastnine.
An intuitive, audio-based coaching app, Eastnine features handpicked experts who create and curate unique running, stretching, and strength training programmes to help you reach whatever goal you have in mind. No matter if you are looking to train for a 5k, are ready for a new challenge, or just want to exercise more, you’ll have the tools to get more out of your workout.
Don’t worry if you’ve never run a mile or it has been a while since you’ve hit the gym, their flexible, 6- to 60-minute sessions meet you where you are, making it easy to squeeze in a workout anytime, anywhere. Plus, you’ll have a crew of skilled coaches in your corner, offering real insights and encouragement that’ll keep you engaged, determined, and excited to sweat.
Seriously — this coaching squad is legit. From two-time Olympian Andy Baddeley and military trainer turned running technician Vince Ciolino to three-time British long jump champ JJ Jegede, you’ll have the best in the biz to guide you.
No need to feel intimidated, though — their coaches might include a roster of pro athletes, but they’re real people like you and, they know all the tips and technique cues you need to unlock your full potential.
Even better, it’s super simple to get started. All you have to do is download the iOS app, choose from one of their four plans—Get Fit, Get Lean, Get Fast, and a limited-time January Revival—or ease into things with one of their individual sessions, like a 13-minute Quick Core Burner.
If you’re still not sure where to begin, just chat with a coach on an easy-to-use messaging system to get a recommendation. Or, check out the community faves section to see what workouts other users are loving. With over 100 sessions to choose from and new content added every week, you'll find something that works for you.
And runners, you’ll be happy to learn that Eastnine syncs with Strava, integrating previous data with your new milestones. The app also places you alongside other runners in real-time, so if you’re up for some friendly competition, just take a peek at the live leaderboard and hit the road.
Eastnine is more than just a coach in your ear, it’s a workout buddy that’ll be there to motivate you and hold you accountable.
So, fire up the app, put your AirPods in, and listen up — your new personal trainer is waiting.
