Explore our comprehensive approach to well-being backed by science and start improving your healthspan today.
Healthspan is the length of time you spend in good health, between birth and end of life, often referred to as quality of life. We often think about our lifespan (how long we’ll live), but here at BLOCK, we aim to help you extend your healthspan.
Research shows us that our daily lifestyle choices significantly impact our quality of life. BLOCK delivers easy-to-use routines that can be easily added to your daily schedule. These routines impact the 5 areas of life with the greatest impact on healthspan: Sleep, Mental Health, Nutrition, Social Interaction, and Movement. By making small progressions in each of these categories, you are scientifically more likely to extend the years of your healthspan.
BLOCK is designed to fit seamlessly into your existing daily schedule. Everyday, users are given a menu of suggested classes that have been personalized to their profile. This optimization supports individuals who want to meet their personal goals with confidence that they are progressing safely and effectively. Users can also search for specific classes as needed.
Our routines can be done at any time of the day while at home, in the office, or outside. For a better experience, cast to any device with Google Cast, Chromecast, or Apple AirPlay enabled.
Regardless of age or ability, the BLOCK App is perfect for anyone interested in extending their quality of life through healthy habits.
We recommend that anyone interested in our Movement Training sessions start with our 8-minute mobility and stability routine, known as the Daily 8. This low-impact routine introduces the basics of our movement philosophy and flows through the first two BLOCKs you find in our six-BLOCK Workouts. Move on up through our three Levels of Intensity as you gain more confidence.
We do not require any equipment for the majority of BLOCK’s daily routines.
Users are encouraged to dress comfortably for our Sleep Prep routines and have easy access to water, a towel, and a soft surface (such as a yoga mat or carpet).
Our Mind Recharges are often done seated or standing near a solid surface, such as a counter or desk. When using another surface as a support, such as a chair or table, make sure any wheels have been locked and there is no danger of the support becoming unsteady.
Some of our Movement Training sessions do require dumbbells and a mobility bar. We realize you might not have access to a mobility bar. If this is the case, below are quick and easy options that vary depending on the user's personal preference.
When I started out, I was just concerned with adding mobility. But now, hearing about healthspan everyday, I realize that I want to be in my 60s, 70s, even 80s and living a full life.
This is my first time working out, or doing any kind of training. The exercises are super fun, and fairly easy for a beginner. They are quite different than what you imagine in a workout app.
