Those that know me (especially my roommate) know how much I LOVE exercising. Y'all don't even know how sad I was when the gym closed. All my life I have done sports. All kinds of them. Ballet, gymnastics, basketball, soccer, dance, and Crossfit. You name it. However, something I really enjoy doing is running. I just zone out with music and my thoughts. More like listening to music and daydreaming whilst I run. Thus, when the gym closed, I was devastated because I could not run anymore! I was also not going to run outside without a mask either (it's hard to breathe in it). Plus, it's getting hot outside.
Anyways, upon discovering that the apartment gym was closed, I literally sat in my apartment pondering. What was I going to do? I could not not exercise you know? Two days passed and all these at-home exercises started popping up on Instagram. However, none of these seem to be motivating or "my type". During spring break I stumbled upon Sydney Cummings' videos on Youtube. It legitimately changed my life. I fell in love with hiit-style workouts. THEY ARE AMAZING. I truly recommend. Many do not require equipment and her energy really got to me as well. I could really write a whole page on this but I will keep it brief.
The reason I even bring this up is because for me, exercise is an outlet and I love it. It is not a "chore" of sorts and finding enjoyable forms of exercise during the quarantine has been reliving. This is by no means a way of saying "you have to do this or you to do that to be doing this during quarantine". For me, exercise is a must and for others it's not. But it never hurts to try something new.
This brings me to my latest question, what do you guys do to keep fit during this quarantine season? Any recommendations?
