Over the weekend, I saw a ton of people on my Twitter timeline talking about Dalgona coffee. If you don’t know about this trend, it’s fine. Dalgona coffee is a frothy and creamy coffee that’s made by vigorously whipping coffee, sugar, and a little bit of water.

Now, if you own a blender or electric whisker, it’s easy for you to enjoy this Instagram worthy delight. However, if you don’t own any of these gadgets, you need to use your hand and whip this mixture for a long time to get the right texture and flavor — and that’s quite a workout.

So, here are some handy ways to work out at home:

  • The famous Gold’s Gym is offering some handy home workouts on its app and website. Plus, it’s offering free premium subscriptions to its app Gold’s AMP until May 31.

  • Planet Fitness is live-streaming workout sessions on its Facebook page at 7 AM ET. If that timing doesn’t suit you, you can watch these videos on the page later as well.
  • Fitbit is offering opening up premium subscriptions on its app that guides you through plenty of home workouts.
  • Nike is also offering free and short workouts on its various workout apps to keep you in shape.
