Since gyms have been shut due to the current lockdown, many of us are looking for alternatives to help us stay fit. Whether you’re just starting to get into exercise, or wanting to maintain your fitness, there are plenty of things you can be doing to keep fit.

Walking / Running

Following recent government guidelines, we are now allowed unlimited amounts of exercise per day and allowed to travel to different locations in England as long as we retain the 2m social distancing regulations. As the good weather continues, you can make the most of the outdoor exercise by visiting parks and beaches. 

Yoga 

Yoga is a great exercise for both the body and the mind. YouTube provides some great videos for beginners to start their yoga journey. You could also purchase a yoga book or search a range of apps on the app store. 

With everything going on in the world at the moment, you may find yourself feeling anxious - Yoga is a great way to escape as you have to focus heavily on your breathing and as a result can relieve a lot of stress.

Apps

If you search fitness apps in your app store, you’ll be spoilt for choice with the amount of options out there. A lot of apps are free so you can trial them out, or for the paying apps, you can sign up to a free trial before committing to the one that best suits you.

Some great free apps to check out are:

  • Runtastic
  • MyTraining
  • AsanaRebel

YouTube Fitness Videos

YouTube is a great website that offers millions of free exercise videos. From Zumba to HIIT workouts, there is a real variety of different types of exercise videos for you to choose from. 

Gardening 

Now that you may have some extra time on your hands, you can finally get started on the dreaded gardening you’ve been meaning to do. Or you might genuinely love gardening but have never found the time to do it!  Gardening actually burns a lot of calories and is yet another way to keep fit during lockdown. 

These are just some of the ways you can keep fit during quarantine. Exercise not only holds a physical impact on your health but can also improve your mental wellbeing. Taking some time away from everything that is going on with the world through exercise can really help.
