If it's your hobby to work out
Learn these expressions!๐Ÿฏ

Since the pandemic, more people have started spending their free time exercising! I use words like home training, self-care, cardio exercise, etc..but I donโ€™t know the exact expressions in English. If you like to exercise during the weekend, make sure you learn the expressions so when someone asks you, 'What did you do this weekend?' you can answer in English!๐Ÿ˜Ž


๐Ÿง˜ Home Training๐Ÿ™…โ€โ™€๏ธ, Home Workout ๐Ÿ™†โ€โ™€๏ธ

I thought because I train at home, I could say home training. But in English, the correct expression is actually โ€˜home workoutโ€™. โ€™Trainingโ€™ usually refers to exercise to achieve a certain goal or to compete in a competition. We usually don't exercise at home to compete, so itโ€™s better to use the word 'workout'.

๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป Could you recommend me some home workout videos?


๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ 'Get a PT?'

PT is short for 'Personal Training' and is the method of 1:1 exercise with a personal trainer. Using 'get a PT' always felt wrong. I learned that saying 'I work with a personal trainer three times a week.' is the better way to say it.

To lose weight, I work with my personal trainer at the gym.๐Ÿ’ฆ


๐Ÿ˜Ž Self-Care?

People work out because of their diet, but also to take care of themselves and stay healthy. If someone is really interested in self-care, you can use the expression 'take good care' to say, 'She takes really good care of herself.' On the other hand, if someone isnโ€™t interested in self-care, you can say, 'She let herself go.'

I try to take good care of myself by working out.โœจ
