With gyms closed and team sports canceled, it can be tempting to sit on the sofa and binge Netflix. However, maintaining the physical health and mental wellness of you and your family is crucial right now. Implementing a regular exercise routine at home can help with both.
Here are a few of our top tips for staying fit while staying home.
💪 GET OUT WHEN YOU CAN
If you live in a community where you can maintain distance while exercising outdoors, try to get out as much as possible. If the weather is nice, go for family walks, jogs, or bike rides.
💪 SEARCH FOR A 6’ x 6’ SPACE
Can’t get outside? Look for a suitable space in your home, garage, or basement where you can comfortably move—you’ll probably need at least a 6’ x 6’ area for each person.
💪 NO EQUIPMENT? NO PROBLEM
Many cardio and strength training exercises require little (or no) equipment, including jumping jacks, lunges, and pushups.
💪 PREFER A GUIDED WORKOUT?
Search for free exercise videos on YouTube—there are even options specifically geared towards kids—or try one of the many fitness apps available.
