Fitness from Home

Friends of the Pacific Electric Trail
Fitness experts encourage folks to exercise at home as much as at the gym to adopt fitness that is sustainable and as a lifestyle habit. The take home is to commit to your daily health habit religiously, no matter how small, just put on your workout gear and go!

Create a routine that works all the major muscle groups that might include something fun like creating an Indoor Obstacle course throughout your house.  Think “outside the Box” and get the family involved by creating a “Scavenger Hunt” in and around your home to get the heart pumping while having fun!

A warm-up could be an easy walk outside in your own neighborhood that helps with digestion and helps you sleep better.  That walk is also beneficial to good mental health, remember to respect social distancing while you remember to smile and waive to your neighbors along the way.

Consider adding Yoga stretching as a way to exercise your body while calming your mind.
Location, location, location  Designate and dedicate a spot in your home for your daily workouts. Consider exercising in your backyard or patio as a welcome change of venue.  Exercising in nature gives you the added benefit of fresh air and sunshine to help calm a stressful mind.
