With an increasing number of countries extending lock-downs and self-quarantines on their citizens, it’s crucial for everyone to maintain their fitness and health. When staying mostly at home for weeks or months, it’s very likely for people to have a more sedentary lifestyle which is risky for both their mental and physical health.
If you are currently stuck at home, there are easy ways to stay fit and healthy until things finally get back to normal.
With that being said, let’s take a look at some ways that you can stay fit and healthy in self-isolation. Let’s get started:
Exercise With TV – TV isn’t just for entertainment, but it’s also a great exercise tool. If you have a smart TV, there are thousands of fitness videos on YouTube and other video sharing platforms.
Use Your Own Body Weight – with some exercise techniques, you can use your own body weight to train your muscles and improve your fitness. Check instructional videos on how to properly do press-ups, sit-ups, planks and squats.
Go Up And Down The Stairs – stairs are great for exercising at home and you can burn calories quickly. Start by going up and down the stairs for about 15 minutes each morning. You can have another 15-minute session in the evening. Only do this exercise if you have a wide staircase and good balance to avoid unintentional accidents.
Diet Planning – because many of us are stuck at home for the unforeseeable future, we also need to have a good long-term dieting strategy. What you eat right now may not have an immediate effect on your fitness, but it’s important to start immediately. You need to get your diet right from the start.

Join Live-streaming Classes – it’s a good thing to use recorded workout videos, but a live session gives you real motivation. You know that the instructor and dozens of other participants are also working out with you at that exact moment and that can even make it seem like you are actually at the gym.
Hire A Personal Virtual Trainer – you will get more results from your regular fitness routine if you are instructed by an experienced personal trainer. A trainer helps you to start the exercises and pushes you past those demotivating plateaus. With virtual personal training, you can keep maintaining physical distancing and still get the full benefits of each exercise session.
Use Mobile Fitness Apps – smartphones can help you work out better and achieve your fitness goals faster. With fitness apps, you can plan, improve and track your fitness routines. Plans can be customised to better match your fitness goals and physical conditions.
