The current COVID-19 pandemic has forced most people to stay home and businesses (including gyms and fitness centers) to close doors, all in an effort to help control and reduce the spread of the Coronavirus. This blog was written exactly a year ago (How fast do things change in one year!). The goal of the original post back then was to offer some creative ideas to stay fit and active without the need of gym membership or equipment. I think we need this now more than ever! I did not change anything in the original post as I thought it was all relevant (some places are still allowing people to go to the park or beach), however, please do follow all local laws in place that are intended to help fight the spread of the virus. Don't forget to wash your hands, don't touch your face with hands not washed, and practice safe social distancing.
Can’t make it to the gym? Work schedule is extra busy this week? Kids soccer practice this afternoon? I am not sure what to do! I can’t afford a gym!
Does any of this sound familiar? If you find it harder to make it to the gym to get a good workout, then read on! The below are all simple, easy-to-follow, and most-importantly effective routines that can be done at home, in the park, and even on the go!
Every exercise listed below can be viewed on YouTube for video illustrations. If you find an exercise too difficult to complete, then change with another option that is easier to finish safely.
Remember to always consult your Physician prior to starting any exercise or diet program.
