It's Upper Body Day

How to Remain Healthy While Staying Home

With everything occurring in the world at the moment, the majority of us are passing more time in our houses. It can seem hard to keep up with a positive lifestyle when your gym in Plymouth is closed.

You might have turned into the educator, main cook, and parent in your home. Perhaps you are working from home now and striving to find some structure during the day.

Throughout these unpredictable times, it can be easy to waste time on the couch, checking the news and movie after movie, and likely falling out of a daily workout routine. We may be spending more time at home, but we can nevertheless create ways to continue healthy behavior! Below, find our favorite productive activities you can incorporate into your updated daily routine to stay active, help your immune system, and manage momentum toward achieving your wellness targets.

Incorporate Home Workouts

One advantage of spending extra time at home is the flexibility in your day-to-day agenda. Look at your schedule. Where can you squeeze in a few minutes for a quick workout? A successful sweat session doesn’t need to take a long time to be helpful. As long as your heart rate goes up, you will create fat and calorie-burning perks! Check out our 12-minute home fitness class you can finish anytime, anywhere!

Involve Your Kids in Your Workout

The pools may not be available, but there are still hundreds of ways to add fun activities your children will enjoy. At the end of the day, remaining active isn’t just for mom and dad! Here are some of our top fun (and free!) ways the whole family can get together:

  • Take the dog for a walk
  • Play frisbee out of your house in the sun (hello Vitamin D!)
  • Go for a bike ride or roller skate journey
  • Create a floral arrangement with your homegrown flowers
  • Play ball in the backyard
  • Find your sidewalk chalk and draft a driveway mural
  • Have a dinner cooking challenge
  • Switch on the music and have a dance break

Plan Healthy Meals

Are you trying your best to bypass grocery shopping? No problem! Now is the time to innovate in the kitchen and use your family’s canned goods and frozen foods. With the kiddos out of school, full days working from home, and the usual household chores, keep your meals easy during summertime.

At FXB, we make good nutrition easy for our members. Use your chosen protein type from the freezer, choose a carb for the side, and mix in some healthy fat. And you’re done: a healthy dinner with little to no fuss. (And if it’s your fun day, order a pizza and relax!)
