7 Tips for keeping fit at home during COVID-19

Just as we all began getting motivated to increase our fitness for summer, the COVID-19 pandemic stalled any classes, gyms or even runs with your friends.

But here at Nuvo we won't let the pandemic extinguish our passion. We have adapted! Here are our top seven ways you can keep on top of your fitness, even whilst confined to your own home.


Here are our top ways you can keep fit during COVID-19:

Stepping up

Swapping pavements for carpeted stairs at home doesn’t sound too bad does it? The stairs don’t limit you to only up and down’ exercises either. Get creative! You can even use your bottom stair to complete exercises such as raised push-ups, dips and lunges.

Once you feel like a stair-exercise master, add weight or dumbbells to your exercises for an extra challenge. Stair exercises have been shown to help tone your leg muscles too! You’ll be toned and fit once this has all blown over.

 

Calisthenics

For those who don’t know, calisthenics is a fancy way of saying ‘exercises that only use the weight of your body as resistance in the aim to promote muscle growth and strength’. These exercises are perfect for at home, as most exercises can be performed in confined spaces and with little equipment.

Inexpensive resistance bands and a door frame are more than enough to get you started in calisthenics. The range of workouts and activities are vast too. If you would like to try our online Body Tone classes click here.

 

 

Food Planning

As our classes are on hold, many of you may struggle to burn as many calories as usual. This means it will be important to get your diet right. If you’re stuck looking after the kids and don’t have much time to cook, try recipes such as Jamie Oliver’s 15-minute meals or Joe Wickes lean in 15.

 

Keep active when you can

Whether you’re lucky enough to have a treadmill at home or space in your garden to exercise, make use of it. You can also still go on runs, walks or bike rides alone, as long as you are keeping a safe distance. To make sure you’re getting in the required 30 minutes a day why not try a fitness tracker?
