Maintaining Your Fitness During Quarantine

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]With people around the world finding themselves stuck in the house, a lot of people are looking for ways keeping their fitness routine going. Without a gym and equipment, you may find yourself at a loss for keeping up the progress you have made or achieving the goals you have set for yourself. In our podcast earlier this week, we spoke about what you can do to stay on track.

Online Videos

A lot of gyms and fitness centers are putting out their own online videos at this time for their members to take advantage of. If you have access to these, this can be a great way to continue classes you may take at home. If you are looking for courses you can use from home, we offer a selection in the programs section of our website.

Virtual Sessions

Another thing that a lot of trainers and physical therapists offer is tele-health or video sessions. This allows you to book one-on-one time to meet and go through exercises together using what you have in the house. We offer a digital coaching program that allows us to evaluate where you are and put together a tailored plan for your goals.

Bodyweight Exercises

If you don’t have equipment at home, that doesn’t mean you can’t work out. Some of the most effective exercises are done without any equipment. All you need is some clear space and your own body. This can include push-up, mountain climbers, and so much more. The Bodyweight Encyclopedia is a great resource if you are looking for exercises you can do from home.

You can also go for a run, bike ride, or a hike if you are able to maintain physical distance from others. Exercise, fresh air, and sunlight are all great for keeping your immune system in fighting shape. At the end of our podcast, we mentioned two routines that we use at home and we have included them below. If you have any questions about how you can make the best out of this time, feel free to email us at info@precisionperformancept.com. We would love to hear from you!
