Jamie Martin and David Freeman discuss how they’ve adjusted their personal workout routines during this time of sheltering in place.
Our guest this episode is Danny King. He’s been a personal trainer for more than a decade and is the national manager of team member development at Life Time.
Even though health clubs are temporarily closed, there are still opportunities for us to remain active and continue moving. As you think about how to get started or how to adapt your routine, remember that something is always better than nothing.
Many of us are spending a greater part of our days being sedentary. Making space for even small bits of movement is critical for your health.
Community can be a powerful fitness motivator. King discusses how you can virtually maintain those connections and accountability.
Outside of the benefits of weight loss, muscle tone, or other things we typically think of when it comes to exercise, it can serve as medicine, too.
Is now the right time for people to go all-in on an exercise plan?
King talks about body-weight workouts, including where to start if you’re a beginner and how to maintain your fitness if you’re more advanced. No matter your level, there’s a lot you can do at home with no or minimal equipment.
King offers suggestions for equipment substitutions using things you likely have around your house.
During this unprecedented time, King has been inspired by the number of people who are prioritizing their health and fitness, as well as the resilience people have shown.
