You may be shut up in your apartment, but that’s no excuse to forgo your workout. Apart from just keeping you healthy and in shape, a daily workout can be a huge mood booster and can help prevent you from feeling the lows of being isolated and stuck inside.
There are lots of ways to workout from home. If you live in a more rural area, get outside if the weather is good. Take a walk, do some circuit training in your backyard, or go for a quick run (just make sure to keep your distance from anyone else you might pass on your route!).
You may also find that now is the time to invest in some higher-end equipment. A new treadmill or exercise bike could be just the thing to keep you sane.
Of course, with the plethora of choices for working out at home, a large purchase isn’t really necessary to stay in shape. There are so many fitness apps that are available that offer great workouts. We’re listing some of our favorites below (most of which are FREE, or are at least offering a free trial right now!) Download one of these today and get back to your workout!
