Visual Meditations are 1-minute calming videos designed to relieve stress, improve productivity, and set the intention. These videos are accompanied by music and reassuring, encouraging messages that allow you to switch negative thoughts and stay calm and mindful in this very moment. The upside: Numerous studies revealed that meditating can help decrease stress and anxiety levels which will later diminish inflammation in your body, reduce blood pressure, improve attention, sleep quality, and help you make smarter food and exercise choices
Daily affirmations will help you to harness positive thinking and encourage a life filled with gratitude. Your first daily chat with Zing Coach starts with an affirmation to set the intention for the whole day. They are not any less important than physical exercises you do every day when you're opening Zing. It's crucial not only to train your body and build muscles but also to work out your mind and grow a positive attitude. The upside: Affirmations help to reprogram your thinking patterns, allowing you to perform better, to work more productively, to boost your self-esteem and confidence. They also help to mitigate the effects of stress and anxiety while enhancing motivation and inspiration. "Where the mind goes the body will follow," - Arnold Schwarzenegger
Pre- and Post-workout mantras appear right before you dive into the workout and after you get it done. Pre-workout mantras are purposefully designed to help you get into the state of mind, where your mind is not the enemy you have to win over, but rather - your greatest ally. Post workout mantras let you anchor working out as a positive behavior pattern and manifest the changes you desire in your life. The upside: Their effect is cumulative: The more you continue with them, the more you'll find your negativity will start to naturally slide away when it comes to your relationship with exercises.
Challenges is another unique feature. Challenges remind you that you're stronger & more capable than you give yourself credit for. Each challenge is 5,10 or 15 days long. During this time you will be encouraged to practice one of the fitness skills such as endurance, strength, balance or flexibility. Once you've taken on the challenge, you will have to accomplish your daily task no matter what, thus practicing your commitment and the ability to follow through. The upside: Challenges develop self-discipline and motivate you to stay accountable. They are blasting off your energy and self-esteem. “You never know how strong you are, until being strong is your only choice," ― Bob Marley

Have you ever dreamed about a headstand? You'll have an opportunity to incrementally develop this skill. The upside: versatile fitness abilities, additional motivation
Coach tips are pieces of advice related to your wellness. Coaching doesn't end the moment you end your workout. Zing provides tons of useful and insightful information to help you better understand your body and be in charge of it.

Self-discovery quizzes are interviews with AI fitness coach aimed at determining your healthy and unhealthy behavior patterns, optimal workout schedule, true motivation behind your fitness goals, your desire to start working out and most importantly keep it life-long. The upside: Self-knowledge makes you independent of the opinions of others. If you know what works for you - what is good for you and, therefore, what isn't - it is irrelevant what others might think and advise.
