Keeping yourself healthy and wise is as difficult as keeping up with the Kardashians! With celebs posting their fitness regime online, many consider it a privilege at a time like this. However, with immunity as the firepower to battle this virus, introducing exercise into your daily routine has never been more crucial.
Life in the lockdown has slowed down drastically, and we all are exerting half the physical labor than we did in the past. Sloth and fatigue are creeping into our daily routine as we know it.
Machine-free exercises are trending right now, and they are quite effective in giving you the necessary jolt of energy that you may otherwise be losing by working from home and straight-up binging Netflix shows!
Yoga, Aerobics, free-hand exercises are taking over the equipment arena. While this may seem a bit difficult initially for gym freaks, most are rising to the challenge with a dose of creativity and panache.
Some of the organizations, like Hemsworth’s “Centr’ or Crossfit, have shifted online and arranged classes for its members.
Social distancing has dispersed the idea of group workouts, which was a beneficial initiative for a lot of people. “I think people come [to group classes] for different reasons, maybe the music or the sweat.
But a majority of people keep coming back because of the community. I’ve always been a firm believer that shared experience is the best experience, and working in the fitness industry for over a decade has continuously proven that to be true,” quipped Charlee Atkins, a trainer and founder of fitness company Le Sweat.
Gym instructors and fitness trainers are now conduction Zoom classes to recreate the feel of group training. Zumba and Aerobics, which were primarily done in the community setting, have garnered excellent responses from the online courses.
Our home has always been our slice of comfort, space where our mind is conditioned to relax. Thus, the quarantine period has made it easy for us to slip into our pajamas and chill.
However, this has been a boon for the people who hesitated earlier to join a physical class as gym chains can now be accessed from a familiar space.
UK based trainers are planning to go global with their online classes in these trying times as the demonstrated routines are attracting beginners with their fleeceable nature. Furthermore, being a potato couch is no longer working as an excuse!
