Add These 7 Self-Care Apps to Your 2020 Wellness Routine

Yoga
Fitness
Meditation
Personal Growth

While our busy schedules don’t always allow for that daily yoga class we really need, we can’t forget to make our wellness a priority. Turns out, there’s an app for pretty much everything these days – meditation, mindfulness, and self-care, oh my. 

Whether it’s looking up healthy dinner recipes or streaming the perfect playlist for your morning run, our phones play a big part in our daily wellness. Here are some of our favorite apps to help you stay on track and lead a happier, healthier life. 

FOR A PICK-ME-UP

Shine 

Looking for some extra inspiration? Shine is the self-care app for you. With daily motivational texts that hype up your morning and a vast selection of self-improvement audio, it can help you to de-stress, lower anxiety, and feel good overall. (I have the app and these texts put a smile on my face before my dreaded daily commute). The app even has the Shine Challenge, a seven-day audio series that gets you deeper into a selected self-care topic. While the Daily Shine texts are free, a subscription to Mindful Moments costs $9.99/month.

Community Close-up: The Kyles of Kyle House Fitness

Expert Advice

Kyle House Fitness is Chattanooga’s premier fitness program offering group fitness classes and personal training with the best-certified instructors and trainers in the area. Located on Chattanooga’s thriving Southside, Kyle House Fitness is more than a gym, they pride themselves on building a welcoming and inclusive community. The owners of this gym, Kyle House and Kyle Miller (AKA The Kyles), may sound familiar to you since they recently wrote a blog post for us on how to be an LGBTQIA+ ally in the fitness space.

Since they happen to be one of the most influential duos in the fitness industry, we were eager to sit down and learn more about what wellness means to them. Ready to get to know The Kyles better? Let’s dive in.

Tell us about yourself. What led you to where you are now? 

We have always had a love for fitness. From an early age, we were both very athletic (swimming, gymnastics, and cheerleading). Once we graduated, we slowly transitioned into training young athletes and then later started working on our careers. Kyle House started personal training at a large gym and began building a solid career as a personal trainer and groups fitness instructor. Kyle Miller started working in marketing and communications ranging from politics, law enforcement, and tech becoming a leading public relations professional. After working in their fields for about 10 years they decided to combine their love of fitness with their experience and built one of the most successful fitness facilities in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Wellness to us has always been about leading a life that is balanced. It's not all fitness, it's not all work, it's not all fun...
What inspired you to open your business? What motivates you day-to-day?  

During our time working at other gyms and visiting other facilities that many were either missing qualified and motivating trainers, topnotch customer service, or a workout that was balanced and would lead to results for everyone whether they were casual fitness enthusiasts or hardcore athletes. We are motivated on a day-to-day basis by the idea that we can always be better. The experience can get better, the community can grow stronger, and we can continue to show people that fitness is more than just a way to look good, it's therapy.

What does wellness mean to you? Has it evolved over the past couple of years? 

Wellness to us has always been about leading a life that is balanced. It's not all fitness, it's not all work, it's not all fun... it's not all healthy food, it's not just junk food—it's about finding a way to reach your own personal goals while still having a healthy relationship with fitness, friends, family, and food—otherwise known as the four Fs.

If you're in the Chattanooga area, you should definitely check out Kyle House Fitness to take your wellness routine to the next level. You can book classes on the Mindbody app or through their KHF app.
