How to workout from home..
So the online game is back in full swing. I want to share a few tips and tricks for you to remain physically healthy and mentally sane!
Tip one take the sessions with an instructor who is still motivating you through a screen, the YouTube sessions are great but we all know it’s so easy to hit pause or sit down and watch them sweat instead... yep done that! Having your coach push you and make sure your still moving safely and efficiently keeps you moving even when you don’t want!
Tip two - set up a “space” your workout zone. A part of the house that you use to go and do your exercise, set the mood there have your towel, mat and equipment in that one spot. Treat it like your home gym.
Tip 3 - maintain routine, this is important for the mental part, when your days morph into on, it is crucial to set up structure to ensure you have some normality. Check out the timetable and book in for those classes, wake up in the morning get your activewear on set the intentions.
Tip 4 - be easy on yourself & reach out if your struggling mentally, it’s what we are here for, even it’s a phone call for a vent a message of excitement because you’ve achieved something stay focused on celebrating the wins and also understanding the loses.
This may sound unachievable or to hard. Take one step at a time, that’s what I’m doing.
