With the current guidelines to stay at home, it can be tough to find ways to keep up with your training and to maintain the results you’ve worked so hard to achieve up to this point. Luckily, there are still plenty of ways that you can comply with the current guidelines and keep up your exercise routine, all while staying safe, and healthy. Here are some useful tips to keep in mind during this time:

-    Support your immune system! Stay hydrated – focus on drinking at least half your body weight in ounces of water daily. Load up on fruits and vegetables, and try to keep processed foods and sugar to a minimum. A few supplements you can take on a daily basis to help keep your immune system strong include Vitamin C, Vitamin D, and Zinc. ** I am currently offering a special discount of 20% off all IV treatments for CRC members through April 30.**

-    You can still get outside! Even though we are asked to stay at home except for essential needs, there are still approved outdoor activities including going for a run, taking a walk, riding your bike, and being in nature, as long as you keep at least 6 feet between yourself and others. 

-          Use this time to get create with your workouts. With all the access to free, virtual fitness classes right now, take advantage of it by trying something new! The body likes variety, so if you are used to sticking to the same exercise routine, now might be a good time to switch things up a few times per week. There are tons of virtual classes right now that don’t require any equipment, including yoga, pilates, and various body-weight exercises.

-          Last but not least, it is ok to use this time to rest. Between busy schedules and constantly being on the go, take advantage of this time to slow down. Then when this is all over you’ll be refreshed, recharged, and ready to get back to normal life!
