I've been using Obé for almost two and a half years now, and I am still completely obsessed with it and think it is one of the greatest workout apps out there. Since I’ve never belonged to a gym while living in New York, I am a self-proclaimed master of working out at home. I started using Obé and then went back to my old at-home workout and switched back to Obé again because I realized I liked it so much. The classes are a great workout, yet the 28 minutes go by super fast, and I’m not counting down the minutes till it’s over. You don't technically need any equipment for the workout, but you can "level up" with simple equipment, such as a resistance loop, weights, and sliders. Plus, I feel like I’m actually getting a good workout and am sore after many workouts.
The live classes are fun and give me a reason to get out of bed in the morning. And the instructors even give shoutouts to people in the class, and it's actually a pretty cool feeling when you hear your name. When I can’t make the live classes, there are SO many on-demand. Obé offers a ton of varieties of classes, including strength, HIIT, sculpt, yoga, barre, and dance. Plus, you can filter classes in the on-demand section, so you can select a low-impact class if you have neighbors to worry about.
Obé has me challenging myself and trying out new classes. I never would have thought I would enjoy a dance HIIT or even a regular HIIT class, but now I do them regularly. It pushes me to be stronger and more confident and really has been such a good thing for me in the past seven months. I feel so strong because of the app, and I did it all without ever leaving my apartment.
