Five Reasons To Keep Working Out in Self-Isolation
Staying active to keep our immune system strong is more important than ever right now!
Exercise not only supports your physical health but also supports your immune system to help fight off infection. When confined to the space of your own home, it is all too easy to fall out of a daily exercise routine and watch Netflix instead. Don’t let go of your daily workouts! Set up a space within your home and continue to sweat it out with an online workout.
Your mental health
Just as we need to take care of our physical health, we also need to take care of our mental health. In uncertain, anxious times, it’s best to keep our minds clear and positive. Research has demonstrated that regular exercise can improve both our psychological and cognitive states by enhancing our energy and enthusiasm while also increasing our self-esteem. Now is the time to set a regular routine and keep our bodies moving—our mental health needs it!
Don’t let your hard work go to waste!
You have spent the weeks, month, and years attending regular studio sessions and sweating it out. Just because we don’t have access to the gym doesn’t mean we can’t keep up with our training routine. We have all felt the effects of returning to the gym after having some time off—it’s tough. Well, great news! F45 has launched an At-Home Workout program so you can continue to work towards your goals from your living room. Remember that time you achieved your very first push-up on your toes or completed an entire workout without stopping? Let your achievements be your motivation and don’t lose momentum. While the setting may look a little different, you can still grind it out. You have an opportunity to continue your fitness journey, make sure you take it!
Break up your routine
If you are working from home or taking time off, it is important to stop and take regular breaks. This includes both emails and Netflix! Exercise has shown to not only reduce stress but also fight feelings of fatigue. To stay on track and avoid becoming a couch potato, make it a priority to schedule daily workouts to break up your routine and have some heart-pumping fun!
We want all of the endorphins! When exercising, your body releases natural chemicals called endorphins, triggering a positive feeling in the body. That’s right, exercise can make you feel happier! Who ever thought burpees could be a key to happiness? Starting is always the hardest part. Get up and get moving because you will be glad you did by the end of the workout. Bring on the positive feels!
