Your Next Workout? It's With POPSUGAR Active on Amazon's Alexa

We get it. You want to work out, but you don't want to leave the house. But you also don't know what to do. And you don't have any fitness equipment either. For us, this isn't a reason to skip a sweat sesh; it's the perfect time to say to your Amazon Echo, "Alexa, ask POPSUGAR Active what workouts I can do."

We wholeheartedly believe working out should be convenient and fun, so we designed our new POPSUGAR Active Alexa Skill to bring a trainer into your home to tell you exactly what to do. You can excuse-proof your fitness life with with our voice-guided workouts — they're all less than 15 minutes and require zero equipment, which means you can easily squeeze in a training session. You can even combine two workouts for an even longer at-home workout. Choose a cardio session to torch calories, an ab and core workout to tighten your middle, or go for a full-body strength training routine to get toned all over.

Here are a few things to say to Alexa to fire up your next workout:

  • "Alexa, open POPSUGAR Active".
  • "Alexa, ask POPSUGAR Active what cardio workouts I can do."
  • "Alexa, ask POPSUGAR Active to start Aerobic Abs."

No matter your mood, we have a workout for you. But most importantly, you don't have to work out alone!
