FAYETTE COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – After Governor Justice announced gym closures and today’s Stay At Home Order, gym goers may wonder how to keep up their usual routine.
Even on a Monday afternoon, there are usually a few people breaking a sweat at the Oak Hill Anytime Fitness, but that wasn’t the case this week. While everyone is stuck at home, you may consider giving up your routine. Experts say that isn’t a good idea.
“Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, especially during times like this, is always important,” says membership director Eric Parrish. “You always want to do what you can with what little you have.”
Since many people join a gym because they don’t have equipment at home, Anytime Fitness suggests using water jugs filled with water for weight-lifting along with other routines.
“It’ll naturally be a lot of body weight exercises and you want to maintain high intensity interval circuit training. There are so many things out there like jumping jacks, push ups, high knees, running in place, crunches, things like that just to keep your body moving.
In case you’re still not sure what to do when it comes to home workouts, a simple search on Instagram can take you to the pages of several trainers ready to offer ideas.
