Top 10 workout essentials to stay active at home - All from amazon!
Why should you stay active at home?
Before the quarantine, I was going to a boxing gym 3 times a week. I was taking boxing, kickboxing and bootcamp classes. Personally I always had a hard time "going" to a regular gym and coming up with my own workouts. BUT - This is a new world we are living in, so... now that we all have to be accountable for staying healthy without leaving the house, I wanted to put together a list of 10 essentials to stay active at home.
Just a few simple basics, from really comfy yoga pants that you can wear literally all morning and roll right into your workout without too much fuss, to this really cool water bottle that will encourage you to keep up the good work all day - no gym teacher needed.
I've also found some really fun workout classes on YouTube! I started following the PopSugar fitness channel, and they have such a great variety of videos for all levels. This is a new journey for all of us, but we are all in this together, that's the new moto right? So let's all stay healthy and active, so that when summer rolls in, were have our beach bod ready to go, at a safe 6 foot distance away from other beach bods.
