Getting into Fitness!

Self-Guided

Above all, getting to the gym and rotating around a few different machines is a traditional, basic, and effective way to get your body moving. Whether this means the elliptical, treadmill, weight machines, stair climber, bench, or any other material you have as a resource, get on there and get going! The hardest part about working out is getting to the gym, and remembering that every other person is there for the same reason that you are is a great way to decrease the nerves and start increasing your confidence.

Online Classes and Videos

Since the start of the “OG” quarantine around March 2020, we’re sure just about every single one of you has heard of a friend, family member, or have even found yourself engaging with online fitness content. YouTube, IGTV, live videos, and almost every social platform have taken to fitness classes taught through the screen. If you’re a homebody, enjoy working out without the presence of others, or are in the market for trying something new, this is a great alternative to incorporate into your routine! Even more, many fitness classes require no added equipment or materials to participate… so all you need is you. 

Extra Tip: Looking to upgrade your experience? Many fitness instructors offer ongoing, continual, and membership programs that you can join to feel a part of a community and gain access to a plethora of all types of workout videos and structures.

Meditation

Just as we encourage you to get your body moving in order to reap the benefits of physical activity, we are also huge advocates of “working out the mind!” What does this mean? Well, setting aside just a few minutes each day to practice meditation, mindfulness, or gratitude exercises is a great way to bring yourself back to center, clear your mind, and rejuvenate after or before a long day of productivity. Finding inner peace and fulfillment through these activities is a wonderful form of exercise that doesn’t require anything more than your own body as well.
