If working from home and social distancing have left you feeling a little soft, you are not alone. The Quarantine 15 is real. The combination of stress, comfort foods and binge-watching Netflix during the pandemic has led to weight gain and a lack of activity for many.
Emily Thorne is a certified physical therapist and fitness instructor. She is also the creator of “EMK FIT” and “EMK HIIT HOP,” who shares creative workout videos every week on her YouTube channel as @emkfit. One of her recent uploads has ABBA fans getting up off the couch and getting in a serious workout that feels like an old-school dance party.
Thorne’s Mamma Mia HIIT Workout has more than 200,000 views so far and viewers are raving over how much fun and motivational the exercise video is, which seems to be her goal as an instructor.
“Just over here trying to make working out a little less awful and a lot more FUN,” Thorne explained in the video description. “We’ll chat, get fit, build butts, etc., but we’ll always keep it REAL.”
