For busy and uber tired mums, going to the gym could be the last thing on their minds. So lets checkout what online fitness programs there are…
Some mums find it hard to take care of themselves when they’re taking care of the more important people in their lives — family. But sometimes, despite all the hard work, mums must also find time to take care of themselves. And one of which is finding time to exercise.
With all the things needed to be done at home, it would seem nearly impossible to go to the gym for some overall workout. Thank God for the internet, there are websites offering online fitness exercises that can easily be done at home.
Here are the 15 Best Online Weight Loss and Fitness Programs for Busy Mums. Enjoy!

Okay so this isn’t exactly a Weight Loss Shake – but it does go hand-in-hand with weight loss and is a great way to minimise over-eating. Because sometimes you really do get hungry on the shake diets (and one of the fella’s in our office who does Keto also takes this and highly recommends this product!).

The Cookie Diet has just arrived here in Australia! What is involved is that you get to eat cookies every two hours during the day (nine in total) before having a good decent meal at the end of the day.
The Cookies are only 60 calories each and are full of fibre and protein which makes you feel fuller for longer.
Now this is a diet plan I think I can get behind!
We recently wrote a big review about The Cookie Diet including what is involved, real reviews and how much it costs.

Bodyrock Bootcamp is an online Bootcamp that offers exercise equipment, and online workouts for every fitness level. They have thousands of workouts available an you can join free for 30 days to try it out (after then it is $19.99 per month).
Noom is a bit different from traditional online weight loss and fitness programs. Noom is like having a personal dietician, a personal trainer and a health coach all in one. The selling point of Noom is that will let you eat anything you want but in moderation. Noom ‘teaches’ you how to eat better with behavioural changes in the way you think about food.
I like the fact that Noom is more ‘educational’ than guilt-driven with weight loss. Learning why you are craving sugar at 3pm every day, or why you don’t feel like getting off the couch can be invaluable.
How much does Noom cost?
Noom works on a subscription basis and at the time of writing the price was up to $59/month.
How does Noom work?
You download the free Noom app on your phone. Then the app will ask you how much weight you are wishing to lose, and how fast you want to lose it. Then it asks you your height and weight. Noom then asks your permission to access the Health app and it then tracks all of your exercise and sleep activity. It then shows you exactly how many calories you have left in a day to burn off.
