It's Lower Body Day

How to Remain Healthy While Staying Home

With changes going on in the world today, the majority of us are passing more time at home. It can appear tricky to follow a healthy lifestyle when your gym in Forest Lake is closed.

You could have found yourself becoming the teacher, main cook, and parent in your house. Maybe you are working from home for a time and aiming to set up some structure throughout each day.

During these uncertain times, it can be easy to stay on the couch, checking the news and your favorite shows, and slowly falling out of a normal workout routine. We may be spending more time at home, but we can still focus on ways to continue healthy behavior! Below, find our preferred useful practices you can add into your changing everyday routine to be active, promote your immune system, and keep momentum toward realizing your wellness targets.

Integrate Home Workouts

One benefit of spending extra time at home is the adaptability in your daily schedule. Look at your day. Where can you squeeze in just a few minutes for a home workout? A useful exercise session doesn’t need to go for hours to be helpful. As long as your heart rate escalates, you will receive fat and calorie-burning benefits! Try our 12-minute home fitness class you can work on anytime, anywhere!

Involve Your Kids in Your Workout

The pools may not be open, but there are still a variety of ways to incorporate fun activities your kids will enjoy. After all, remaining active isn’t just for adults! Here are some of our preferred fun (and free!) ways the whole family can stay fit together:

  • Walk the dog
  • Bring a frisbee out 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 your yard
  • Find your sidewalk chalk and create a driveway masterpiece
  • Have a dinner cooking contest
  • Turn on the family playlist and have a dance party

Plan Healthy Meals

Are you doing your best to avoid grocery shopping? That’s just fine! Now is the time to make new things in the kitchen and include your favorite canned goods and frozen foods. With the kiddos on summer break, full days working from home, and everyday household chores, keep your breakfasts, lunches, and dinners simple this season.

At FXB, we make good nutrition simple for our members. Start with your chosen protein type from the freezer, select a carb for your side, and incorporate some healthy fat. And there you go: a healthy supper without the fuss. (And if it’s your fun day, call for a pizza and sit back!)
