Going back to the gym

Should You Go Back to The Gym? 

Exercise is one of the best things you can do to protect your health. Today we need to be more careful than ever about protecting our health, not just for ourselves but for others as well. 

I chose to quarantine for 2 weeks on March 22nd. My last trip to the gym was March 15th; I wore rubber gloves and brought my own towels to cover the machines during my workouts on each one. I have not been back to the gym since then, and it’s hard — of all the things I miss about my pre-pandemic life the going gym is number 2 (second only to seeing my family). 

Here’s why I haven’t returned: We don’t know much about Covid, but what we do know is that the virus is spread through water droplets and aerosols spread by other humans. Sweat is a water droplet and gyms have lots of it! Lots of people breathing in closed spaces is also a way to spread the virus, so just imagine what taking an exercise class at any New York gym is like! Until we know more about Covid, I will work out at home. 

Try working out at home 

For about $75 or less you can get a nice home gym set up. To get you started I will share 2 of my favorite pieces of exercise equipment, with you. 

Exercise Pods Fun, versatile, and inexpensive, these pods have thousands of uses. Children especially love these colorful pods (and they are safe for kids to play with). You can do balance exercises, as well as strength and core training with them. They’re about $20 for a set of 2, but I recommend you get 4 to 6 pods. 

Areomat exercise pods, my favorite.

Exercise Loops 

On my hands is a rubber exercise loop, and around my legs is a fabric exercise loop. Both are wonderful tools for home exercise. Hundreds of exercise that can be done with them. And for $5 to $12 dollars each, they are a super-cost-effective piece of equipment. Exercise loops are for strength training. They can help maintain bone density and muscle tone too! Working out at home is fun and convenient. You do not even need a lot of space to work out in. Try a few home exercises today. It is never too late to start.
