It's Upper Body Day

How to Keep Healthy While Staying Home

With everything going on in the world right now, nearly all of us are spending more time in our houses. It can seem difficult to keep up with a healthy lifestyle when your gym in Bellevue is closed.

You may have transformed into the educator, chef, and parent in your household. Perhaps you are working from home for a while and striving to find some organization during your day.

Through the course of these changing times, it can be tempting to spend more time on the couch, checking the news and movie after movie, and likely losing your normal workout routine. We may be spending more time at home, but we can still find ways to keep up healthy habits! Below, find our favorite positive practices you can incorporate into your changing everyday routine to keep active, help your immune system, and create momentum toward achieving your wellness goals.

Start Home Workouts

One benefit of spending extra time at home is the flexibility in your day-to-day schedule. Go through your day. Where can you find a few minutes for an at-home workout? An awesome workout doesn’t need to go for hours to be effective. As long as your heart rate escalates, you will find fat and calorie-burning benefits! Take a look at our 12-minute home fitness class you can complete anytime, anywhere!

Include Your Kids in Your Workout

The pools may not be available, but there are still a variety of ways to add fun projects your little ones will like. At the end of the day, staying active isn’t just for adults! Here are some of our favorite fun (and free!) ways your family can get all together:

  • Take a nice, long walk
  • Bring a frisbee out in the sunshine (hello Vitamin D!)
  • Head out for a bike ride or roller skate journey
  • Create a floral arrangement with your outdoor blossoms
  • Play ball in your yard
  • Grab your sidewalk chalk and draft a driveway mural
  • Have a dinner cooking competition
  • Crank up the tunes and have a dance -off

Make Healthy Meals

Are you trying your best to avoid grocery shopping? No problem! This is the time to innovate in the kitchen and use your favorite canned goods and frozen foods. With the kids away from school, long days working from home, and almost endless household chores, keep your mealtimes straightforward during summertime.

At FXB, we make good nutrition simple for our members. Snag your chosen protein type from the freezer, pick a carb for a side, and add some healthy fat. And there you have it: a healthy dinner with no fuss. (And if it’s your fun day, order a pizza and relax!)
