2021 offers us an opportunity to make a fresh start in our lives in many ways, and fitness is a great example of one of them. Here in the UK, we had all hoped that the new year would also ring in the end of lockdown and the semblance of some sort of everyday normality, but sadly this has not been the case and many of us are going to be stuck at home for at least another month if not longer.
Staying fit during lockdown seems like the impossible task – and let’s face it – motivation doesn’t come easy. However, you should not be discouraged by being at home over the coming weeks because there are still many ways you can continue to pursue and achieve your personal training and fitness goals from your lounge, spare room or garage.
Today we want to talk about the benefits of working out at home and why you should consider using professional online personal training services or even some carefully chosen YouTube videos to lose weight and get fit in lockdown.
You'll Be Happier
The first benefit of working out at home is that you will be happier. Mental health is so important and for many of us since last March, being stuck at home has had a profound effect on our confidence and our mental health. Exercise is known to promote the release of endorphins and serotonin in the body that improves our mood and makes us happier. By doing even 20 minutes of physical activity a day you can see a marked improvement on your mental health.
You’ll Have More Energy
Energy is hard to come by during lockdown – and a lot of us only have to walk from our bedroom to our spare room to go to work in the morning. To promote productive days and more energy you should wake up half an hour early and do a workout in your living room. Start the day off with a flood of adrenalin and you’ll feel more awake and alert for the day ahead.
You’ll Lose Weight
When considering the online training services Swansea Strength and Conditioning offer as well as the countless YouTube workouts there are out there; your main goal might be weight loss. We all want to lose weight and be happier in our body, and by joining a reputable online personal training service you will be able to work out and lose weight after gorging at Christmas. Start this year right and focus on making your body a place you are happy to be.
You'll Become Stronger
If you are looking to improve your fitness and strength then working out at home is a great idea. From bodyweight exercises such as push ups and planks to dumbbell workouts using food tins or wine bottles – you can do a lot from home to improve your strength and get those muscles strong and not to mention toned
