The Hottest Fitness Trend of 2021: Manduu Lunchtime Workouts

Several different news outlets and publications, including NBC’s Today, are calling lunchtime workouts one of the hottest fitness trends of 2021. There’s a big reason for that.

According to a trends report from ClassPass, 12 p.m. is now the most popular time to exercise on weekdays. It’s also the most popular time to take a digital class with friends. So, if you want to accomplish your New Year’s resolution of losing weight and toning up in 2021, all you need to do is hit the gym during lunch, right? Well, it’s not that easy.

A recent global survey of 15,000 employees in 27 countries discovered that the average lunch break duration around the world is 35 minutes. In the U.S., a whopping 73% of employees surveyed said they take 30 minutes or less for lunch.

It’s difficult to accomplish a productive workout at the gym during an abbreviated lunch break. But at Manduu, 30 minutes is plenty of time to build muscle, burn fat and release endorphins that will make you feel happier and less anxious throughout the day.

Here’s why lunchtime workouts at Manduu will reshape your body and mind this year:

You’ll Actually Accomplish Your New Year’s Resolution

This may come as a shock, but many people do not stick with their New Year’s fitness resolutions. Strava, a service that tracks exercise activity, used over 800 million user-logged activities in 2019 to determine that January 19th is the day most people are likely to give up on their New Year’s resolution.

However, if you spend your lunch break completing a 15-minute, full-body workout at Manduu instead of running errands or eating lunch quickly at your desk while surfing the Internet, you’re far more likely to accomplish your New Year’s resolution of losing weight and toning up.

You’ll Produce Energy and Finish Your Day Strong

Whether you’re going to an office or working from home, there’s nothing worse for your mind and body than plowing right through your lunch break to continue working.

Taking a lunch break can help your mind rest and recharge, which will boost your productivity in the afternoon. Taking a lunch break at Manduu makes both your mind and body strong.

The muscle you’ll build and the fat you’ll burn during your Manduu workout gives you a boost of energy your body needs to perform at its best, and the confidence you’ll gain after your workout helps alleviate stress and elevate your mood. It’s a physical and mental win-win.

You’ll Burn More Calories in Less Time

If you go to the gym during your lunch break, take a second to pat yourself on the back and praise yourself for making a good decision regarding your health.

However, it’s not the best health and wellness decision you can make for yourself. That’s because working out at a gym is far less efficient than the electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) workouts at Manduu.

Our unique workouts activate more than 90 percent of muscle fibers in nine major muscle groups, making for a much more efficient workout. How efficient? One 15-minute session at Manduu can produce results that would take six to eight hours to achieve in a regular gym.

Your time is precious, and unless you’re lucky enough to get a six-hour lunch break, you’ll get much more accomplished at midday with Manduu.

You’ll Get Training from an Actual Trainer

One of the most important benefits of Manduu is that your workout is led by a certified, FDA-cleared trainer who tailors your session to meet your unique fitness goals. There are several inherent advantages to performing custom routines with a live, qualified trainer versus the stock streaming trainer on apps like Mirror and Peleton.

Our trainers focus on your form to make sure you’re exercising correctly, and they use detailed metrics captured from InBody to ensure you’re doing the most efficient exercises, in a safe setting, to build strength and muscle.

It’s also easier to achieve your fitness goals and hit your New Year’s resolution when you’re being motivated and held accountable by our trainers, as opposed to the impersonal trainer behind the screen.

You’ll Make Better Food Choices

Skipping lunch isn’t the best idea if you’re trying to lose weight and tone your body. But getting fast food or eating the wrong things at a restaurant during your lunch break is even worse for you.

The food you eat following a workout is incredibly important to your health. Eating the right things, like lean proteins and vegetables, will help your muscles recover while replenishing your nutrients. After your workout, you can even grab a Manduu protein bar that you can eat on the way back to work.

Plus, you’ll feel so refreshed and healthy after your lunchtime workout at Manduu that you will not want to ruin your progress by eating unhealthy foods.

If you want to knock your New Year’s resolution out of the park and get healthy this year, spend your lunchbreak at Manduu. Remember, your first session is free, so you have nothing to lose (but body fat).
