    Do You Need a Gym to Be Fit?

    PERSONAL TRAINER CERTIFICATION
    Having access to a gym can help you feel like part of a fitness community and can help with accountability if you struggle getting your workouts in. Do you need a gym to be fit? Absolutely not!  Online fitness groups and online training has made it easier than ever to connect with fitness communities around the world and joining online fitness groups can help with accountability from wherever you choose to work out.

    If you feel lost without your routine gym equipment and are not sure where to start a fitness plan outside of the gym, seek out a certified health wellness coach online. A certified health fitness specialist can also help you design a personalized fitness or wellness plan that you can follow from home or anywhere using only equipment you have access to. In many cases, no equipment is necessary to build wellness and personal fitness.

    If you want to build endurance, you can use a treadmill or stationary bike if you have one at home. You can also go outside and run around the block or cycle down a nice bike path if you are able to get outside. Many cardio classes are now offered virtually and you can enjoy high-impact fitness classes such as Cardio Kickboxing Fitness from the comfort of your own home. Many gyms have moved their programs online as well so you can continue your fitness training and classes remotely. 

    If you want to build strength and tone up, you can do many resistance training programs at home using dumbbells or resistance bands if you have access to them. If you don’t have any resistance training equipment at home, body weight exercises such as push-ups, squats, lunges, and plyometric exercises can be done to help tone up and build muscle. 

    If you want better overall wellness and increased functional fitness, you can access remotely under 1 hour stability workouts to get a challenging workout in during your lunch time. Stability workouts help to build core strength, increase balance, and improve functional fitness. Stability workouts can be used by athletes to help protect their joints and prevent sports injury. Older adults can use stability workouts to increase balance and reduce their risk of falling. Functional fitness can improve everyday living and can be individualized to fit your specific needs and personal fitness goals. 

    Don’t miss out on building personal fitness just because you don’t have access to a gym right now. There are a variety of options to continue working on your fitness goals remotely from the comfort of your own home. Do a virtual fitness class or take your workouts outside on a nice day.
