Mitchell has recently partnered with digital fitness and nutrition platform, Openfit, to launch Four Weeks of Focus—a workout program developed by fitness trainer and influencer, Kelsey Heenan. “It’s 30 minutes a day, five days a week—for four weeks only… and that in and of itself makes it exciting and easier to stick to,” Mitchell notes.

“In a nutshell, [Openfit’s] a subscription-based fitness app that has recently gained more popularity now that gyms are shut down due to COVID-19. The app has live trainers, exhaustive nutrition plans, workout challenges, varied exercise series, and a comprehensive blog for more information, making it feature-rich enough to be worth your time.”
“There were a few aspects the fitness platform had to have in order to get the Campus Rec seal of approval. The class offerings needed to represent the variety in format, level and time our in-person class schedule offered. The instructors needed to use the body-positive, self-loving, motivational language of which we spend hours on coaching our student fitness instructors.”
There are also live, interactive classes you can join in the app with top fitness trainers. You can set your goals and receive support from fitness trainers who keep you on track throughout your structured program. There’s also nutritional support available for those looking to take it one step further.
Openfit also offers access to a wide range of recipes and meal plans, as well as a weight and food tracker. Meal plans consist of breakfast, lunch, dinner, and two snacks every day. The platform provides a decent variety and it’s interesting to see a fitness brand offer more than just the fitness output but a sound diet plan, as well.
