There are lots of reasons to work out at home – but the arrival of COVID19 has bought into sharp focus the need for us to find new ways to keep active in our living rooms.
We don’t know about you, but after 5-billionity laps of our local neighbourhood and finishing a years worth of home maintenance jobs, groundhog day has definitely started creeping in.
But here’s the exciting part, finding new habits and ways to keep moving and stay healthy, while gyms and studios are closed, has resulted in some new approaches to working out at home.
