It's Upper Body Day

How to Keep Healthy While Staying Home

With all the things going on in the world right now, most of us are putting in more time in our houses. It can appear difficult to keep up with a positive lifestyle when your gym in Columbus is closed.

You might have found yourself becoming the principal, home cook, and parent in your home. Perhaps you are working from home for a time and aiming to find some structure during the day.

Throughout these unusual times, it can be easy to waste time on the couch, checking the news and movie after movie, and casually losing your daily workout routine. We may be spending more time at home, but we can still make ways to keep up healthy habits! Below, find our top productive habits you can add into your updated everyday routine to be active, support your immune system, and keep momentum toward reaching your wellness objectives.

Incorporate Home Workouts

One nice thing about spending additional time at home is the flexibility in your daily agenda. Examine your routine. Where can you squeeze in a few minutes for a quick workout? A useful sweat session doesn’t need to go on forever to make a difference. As long as your heart rate increases, you will receive fat and calorie-burning benefits! Take a look at our 12-minute home fitness class you can complete anytime, anywhere!

Include Your Kids in Your Workout

The pools may not be available, but there are still almost endless ways to incorporate fun activities your children will want to do. At the end of the day, remaining active isn’t just for grownups! Here are a selection of our favorite fun (and free!) ways your family can stay fit as a group:

  • Take a nice, long walk
  • Take a frisbee outside in the sun (hello Vitamin D!)
  • Break for a bike ride or roller skate adventure
  • Design a floral arrangement with your family’s flowers
  • Play ball in the yard
  • Find your sidewalk chalk and create a driveway mural
  • Have a dinner cooking match up
  • Turn on the tunes and have a dance competition

Prepare Healthy Meals

Are you attempting to bypass shopping for groceries? No problem! Now is the time to innovate in the kitchen and use your available canned goods and frozen foods. With the kiddos out of school, long days working from home, and almost endless household chores, keep your breakfasts, lunches, and dinners straightforward this summer.

At FXB, we make good nutrition simple for our members. Start with your chosen protein type from the freezer, pick a carb for a side, and add some healthy fat. And there you go: a healthy supper with no fuss. (And if it’s your fun day, call for a pizza and hang at home!)
