Transformation 2020: Fitness for Life

While we are still practicing preventative measures to stop the spread of COVID-19, you may have found it a little difficult to keep up with your typical exercise routine. If you enjoy going to the gym and participating in fitness classes, you may miss the camaraderie and motivation you get from the fitness atmosphere. It’s also normal to feel less motivated to exercise because your routine has been interrupted. 

 

Although physical activity won’t prevent you from contracting COVID-19, it does have other protective benefits. Here is a guide to help you navigate getting fit during the pandemic.

 

Benefits:

 

  1. Reduction of anxiety and stress
  2. Support your immune system
  3. Lose Weight
  4. Reduce your health risks and prevent diseases
  5. Improved sleep, cognition, and quality of life 

 

Areas of Focus:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How much exercise do you need per week?

 

Children and adolescents should meet the key guidelines by doing activities that are appropriate for their age. For substantial benefits, adults should do at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity per week.
