Why we should continue to exercise at home during lockdown

April 23, 2020

In the midst of COVID-19, exercise is not just “something to do”. In fact, getting active during this time is likely to help you in more ways than simply reaching specific fitness goals. As we get used to this new way of living, you may find your clients becoming more complacent with their new routines. As a result, they may be less inclined to join you for your fitness classes and personal training services. Here’s how you can help your clients to see the benefits of working out at home.

If you have noticed your clients are feeling less motivated to keep moving during this time, here is some information that may change their minds.

By keeping active, whether it be a short walk during quiet periods or a full-blown home workout, both the body and mind benefit. In terms of health, it can help manage weight and reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and various cancers. Bone and muscle strength is improved (handy if you have to carry grocery deliveries up into a flat) and you can even improve your balance and flexibility. For those who are older, regular exercise can help prevent falls and injuries.

For non-physical reasons, the benefits of working out at home can have a strong positive impact on your mental health. It can reduce the risk of depression, cognitive decline and even help to delay the onset of dementia. Generally speaking, exercise releases endorphins, leaving you feeling generally happy.
