Coronavirus is here, gyms are closing because they are a well-known cesspool for germs, and I just happen to be a home gym advocate.
This is a perfect storm.
A match made in heaven to serve the good people of the planet earth little tidbit on how to workout at home.
You know what else is a match made in heaven? Kettlebell swings and SkiErg.
M(EAUX)TION specializes in teaching people how to transition exercise habits away from public gyms into the home setting.
I’m not trying to put any gyms out of business, because there’s enough pie to go around.
Statistically, we are as unhealthy as we’ve ever been, which is confusing because we’ve had access to better technology, effective transportation, and information indicating the importance of engaging in daily activity.
Richard Simmons did a better job at getting people moving in the 80’s.
Not moving enough is destroying us, slowly.
Anyways, I cancelled my gym membership 12+ years ago and haven’t looked back.
Many others have done the same thing, taking back their time, saving money and building superior fitness.
Today, I provide strategies on how to go about select gym equipment, identify space and engage in quality home fitness (for the long-term) is my expertise and passion.
The exercise video below was created a while back with zero anticipation it would be shared as a home workout solution during a worldwide pandemic.
My YouTube channel has hundreds of videos just like it.
For as long as the Coronavirus keeps us quarantined and socially distanced from each other, I’ll be pumping out effective exercises, workouts, and links to other resources.
(There are some incredible online fitness programs out there, created by relatively unknown brilliant people.)
Strength, mobility, cardio, movement flow, etc. All of it matters and contributes to a well-rounded fitness regimen.
Some of these ideas and methods you may recognize, others you won’t.
For instance, are you familiar with lizard crawling?
Most people aren’t yet it’s crazy good exercise.
The lizard crawl is an incredible locomotion pattern that blends strength, mobility and fluid movement.
Some days, I feel a solid dose of lizard crawling is superior to push-ups.
Totally unfair to push-ups to play favorites, but the lizard crawl will blast your chest, arms, and core in one shot. Lots of boxes checked ✔️ .
How about ground-based conditioning?
My friends over at Vahva Fitness created an entire movement program called Movement 20XX focused on ground-based movement techniques.
It’s great program designed for bodyweight only ground-based movement. Perfect for home.
Anyways… guess what?
You and I have nowhere to go for the next couple of weeks and my fingers are antsy to publish more home fitness content.
Now is the time to explore how incredibly effective and efficient home workouts can be. Whether you’re training barebones minimalist or you’ve got some equipment to enhance the workouts, it doesn’t matter.
We can work around any limitations and space constraints.
You might be canceling your gym membership 😃
Let’s turn 🍋 into lemonade folks.
My Two Cents on Coronavirus
Don’t be an idiot. Is someone in your social circle or family noticeably acting like an idiot? Tell them to get it together.
What classifies being an “idiot”? Not following the basic directions of local and national government.
We need to take care of each other right now.
How do we do that?
First, take a deep breath, curb the panic, stop hoarding toilet paper, follow directions, limit contact with others, enjoy your family, do your part and let’s get back to normal living as quickly as possible.
Most of these exercises are bodyweight-based, so they are extremely accessible and green lighted for small spaces.
Stop thinking about what you can’t do, and switch into the opportunistic mode of thinking.
Get your daily dose of fitness in while Coronavirus has us stuck at home.
