Not at all. Registration to Strava is free, and ibis budget has created for you the running courses. So everything is free!

Who created the sports courses?

The CYD agency, specialized in Wellbeing, has created these running courses in partnership with certified sports coaches, experts in their field.

What are the differences between the “morning routine”? “the sporty lunch break”? What about the “afterwork”?

THE MORNING ROUTINE : Leitmotiv: whether you are an early riser or a late riser, this routine is made for you, to gently but surely wake up your body and spend a day in top shape!

– Targeted exercises: stretching, body awareness exercises

– Duration : 20′.

THE SPORTY LUNCH BREAK : Leitmotiv: You have a busy schedule but sport is essential for you, take advantage of 15′ top time for a good cardio session!

– Intensity: high (body temperature is at its highest at this time of day, so this is a good opportunity for a good HIT)

– Targeted exercises: HIT, Cardio

– Duration: 15 minutes

THE AFTERWORK : Leitmotiv: We release all tensions after an intense and productive day!

– Intensity: low (to prepare the body to enter the sleep phase)
