How to Stay Healthy at Home

Joseph Coupal - Monday, March 30, 2020
Answer is Fitness - North Attleboro, MA

Here are some tips for staying healthy while at home:

Keep your workouts going virtually. With Massachusetts mandating closures of public facilities, including gyms, those who have committed to a fitness routine are finding themselves in a bind. Fortunately, there are plenty of exercises that can be done at home with little or no equipment, such as:

  • Taking a long walk around the neighborhood
  • Watching a yoga video on YouTube
  • Performing bodyweight exercises, such as push-ups, pull-ups, wall squats and sit-ups
  • Utilizing paid apps that offer flexible livestreamed or rerecorded programs for people at every fitness level

Try to stick to a meal schedule. If you have stocked up the kitchen in preparation of being quarantined, you or your family member may be finding it difficult to follow a regimented meal plan and feel inclined to reach into the cabinets for extra snacks throughout the day. Meal preparation and designated meal times will help to:

  • Regulate consumption and prevent overindulgence
  • Ensure a well-balanced diet
  • Avoid the temptation of ordering take-out foods that can be highly processed or packed with more saturated or trans fats

Take care of your mental health. While it’s important to stay abreast of the latest information regarding COVID-19, it’s easy to become wrapped up in the information about the pandemic, increasing stress and anxiety levels. Stress-reducing strategies include:

  • Giving yourself breaks from the news and social media
  • Getting plenty of sleep
  • Practicing meditation
  • Engaging in video chat with friends and family

Stay hydrated. Adequate water and fluid intake helps to keep your body strong and have the ability to fight off viruses and infection, but inevitable home distractions may get in the way of ensuring you’re drinking enough water. Follow hydration techniques such as:

  • Tracking fluid intake through various apps that are available
  • Drinking a glass of water before every meal
  • Adding natural flavor to water through fruit infusion
  • Utilizing a large reusable water bottle
  • Replacing other drinks like soda or coffee with water or seltzer

Stay healthy and well. We'll see you soon at Answer is Fitness in Foxboro, MA!

Selecting a Personal Trainer

The warmer weather has finally gotten here and swimsuit season is drawing near. For many, that could mean heading to the gym and even seeking out a personal trainer.

There are many different reasons why people choose to be active, and there are even more reasons why picking the right personal trainer is so important.

If it is time for you to start strength training, something everyone needs for health and weight loss, do it right and seek out a personal trainer.

Do your own interviewing when it comes to selecting her personal trainer.

Find out what kind of training the gym has, what kind of people and clients the personal trainer you are considering works with. Do you want to run a marathon, do you have a chronic injury, or do you just want to be stronger and healthier.

The trainer you choose should also ask you questions about your health and medical history so they can customize the workout just for you.

Your workout should be custom designed for your specific needs because not everyone is going to do the same workout. The workout should be designed for your fitness goals.

Here are some questions you should ask when it comes to picking a personal trainer.

  1. Are you certified?
  2. Do you have a degree in the field?
  3. Do you have any additional certifications?

Any additional certifications, such as contract and relax stretching, Pilates, and cancer fit training will show the trainer has more experience and can reach your specific needs.

However, certifications can give people a false sense of security. It is important to look at what qualifies a trainer to be good for you and your needs. Check references and speak to their other clients who have had similar needs to yours.

It is important to look for other things besides just being certified. Sit down and talk to them, see what their plan is for you what their experience is. If it isn’t a good fit after a few training sessions, switch personal trainers.

Personal training can give you the strength and the motivation you need to achieve your fitness goals.

Getting your own personal trainer can be best thing you can do for yourself and your health.
