Why audio-only workouts can help you get fit (and reduce your screen time)

Get up (stand up), fire up the Sonos and bop! As part of our week-long Get Fit for ’23 program, I want you to throw strong, silly, angular shapes to the beat – anything that gets the heart rate going. If you’re lucky enough to have a Victrola turntable that works with Sonos, walk to your local thrift store and crate rummage. Not only is that a solid chunk of cardio in itself, but look (above) at the gems you’ll unearth! 

OK I jest – but only in part, mind. As TechRadar’s senior audio staff writer (and still a professional dancer), I need you to know that dancing is one of the best workouts there is. Owing to its glorious mixture of strength, flexibility, and endurance, it requires a unique combination of aerobic and anaerobic activity that will leave you feeling both fantastic and exhausted, all while listening to some stone-cold bangers!
