HackerBody is a fitness instruction site designed with beginners and programmers in mind.
Too many workout and exercise instructional sites and videos are designed to cater to an audience that already knows what they’re doing. HackerBody refers to those types of individuals as “Meat Heads,” and it delivers the promise that its own fitness site is “100% Meat Head Free” This means that HackerBody, which offers instructional fitness videos on a daily basis, caters to a different type of audience than the one typically targeted in the fitness world. It describes its own services as “A Geek’s Guide to Fitness,” although that mainly means it’s approachable for beginners of all personality types more than anything else. The site offers its instruction primarily in the form of videos, with a new 20 minute workout delivered to each user each day.
HackerBody makes fitness even more approachable by designing workouts that do not require weights or any other equipment that may be difficult or expensive for beginner’s to obtain. Everything can be done from within your own home, as long as you have an internet connection. The site targets a different area of the body each day in order to maximize results for individuals using the service. Many of the workouts are also designed specifically with programmers in mind, as coding can require individuals to sit in front of computers without moving anything but their fingers for hours at a time. As HackerBody notes, the simple act of doing a 20 minute exercise can clear an individual’s mind and allow him or her to return to the computer feeling healthier, happier and more alert. Because the site is technically-inclined, it also integrates seamlessly with Spotify in order to allow users to listen to their own music as they complete their workout. For those interested in getting involved with fitness or progressing to new levels of exercise, HackerBody is an extraordinary place to begin.
