Exercise can be monotonous and demotivating, especially if you have to do it by yourself. However, by using these workouts, you can enjoy your fitness journey and involve family and friends

  • Cycling

Now may be the time to invest in a bike and some safety gear. If you are feeling claustrophobic, cycling can give you a feeling of freedom while allowing you to exercise in a contact-free environment. Make sure to brush up on your road safety first.

  • Jogging

With little vehicular and foot traffic, road running is a safe way to get some fresh air while maintaining a prescribed distance. Running on tarmac or cement can be hard on your joints so purchase a pair of good quality running shoes for proper support.

  • Open water swimming

If you are lucky enough to be by the ocean or a lake during this crisis, open water swimming can provide a safe and affordable outlet to burn calories and improve your cardio capacity with minimal equipment.

  • Golfing

If you can avoid contact as you enter, visiting a local golf park to hit a few balls can help you while the time away.
