Those of us that love a good workout have had to reconsider our whole schedule since with the stay-at-home-stay-safe orders. With gyms all over Australia closing temporarily – we hope – what do we do to stay fit? How can we make sure we are getting a full-body workout even if we cannot leave our homes? We took a closer look to try and find out.
Ways to Maintain Fitness Levels When the Gym is Closed
So what can we do to make sure we don’t fall foul of laziness while the world is in lockdown?
Here are the top three things you can do to keep that body toned from home.
1 – IsaElite
IsaElite provides high-quality weight loss management products, all of which are aimed at helping prevent weight gain while you are stuck at home.
If you are missing the gym, they make a wonderful, comprehensive wellness program that will keep you toned, help with managing weight loss in a natural and healthy way, and will leave you feeling better, all around.
It really shouldn’t take a global pandemic for we Aussies to start paying better attention to our bodies.
We’re not trying to slate anyone – we just think this is such a good system that we believe you will still be using it, even after lockdown has ended.
Try it for yourself, you won’t be disappointed.
2 – Home Workout
Just because you can’t get to the gym, doesn’t mean that you can’t do a workout at home.
A few YouTube stars have even come out with their own home-workout fitness videos in response to the Covid-19 crisis.
You can follow their workouts or even create one of your own.
Check out this video, by the Telegraph, who reported on home workouts conducted via Zoom meeting!
One of the most famous stars to offer a workout in the wake of Coronavirus is Chris Hemsworth – a world-famous Australian.
You can read more about it through the News.
When it comes to personal fitness it seems that everyone has an opinion.
Just remember to go at your own pace, no matter which workout you choose.
3 – Eat Breakfast
Lots of us wake up in the morning, grab a coffee, and go out to start the day.
When you don’t break your fast in the morning, you are not encouraging your body to start normal functioning.
It is still in ‘fast’ mode.
When it is in fast mode it doesn’t process fat molecules in the same way.
Instead, your body thinks that it needs to stop consuming calories because it is starving.
Eating breakfast is a simple, effective, and efficient way to kick start the calorie-burning process.
After you eat for the first time you have broken your fast.
Thus your body can get on with its day.
The Mayo Clinic has more details on how eating breakfast helps with weight control.
It is a balanced diet combined with maintaining an exercise program that will keep us in shape while we are locked down.
If we stay in shape, there is less chance of us catching the virus and more chance of us surviving it, if we do.
We need to stay on top of our fitness to ensure our physical and mental health.
