Picks PT Personal Trainers

Whether you are observing the social restrictions implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic, or you’re in quarantine or a hard lockdown, there are many health and fitness options from which you can benefit. It’s important not to drift into a sedentary lifestyle, as over time this can weaken your immune defences, increase your risk of chronic diseases, and have an impact on your mental health.

The good news is that you can stay healthy with a combination of good nutrition, exercise, and keeping busy both physically and mentally.

Keeping physically active

If you’re in lockdown, make certain you use the daily allotted time for outdoor exercise, whether that entails going for a walk, a run, a cycle, or a surf. Even while you’re inside your home or in your backyard, there are many COVID-19 fitness options ideal for maintaining your health and wellbeing. A routine of push-ups, squats, and sit-ups will help with energy levels and both upper and lower body strength.

Personal trainers are offering online personal training that can assist further with exercising. Only minimal equipment is needed for most of this training and trainers adapt their methods to suit a client’s circumstances.

Depending on the restrictions in your area, you may be able to have one-on-one personal training if you wish and if it is within government health guidelines.

Work Hard – Train Hard – Play Hard.

The benefits of staying active

Relieving anxiety and stress.

Chemicals such as serotonin and endorphins are released when we exercise, reducing anxiety and the risks of mood disorders such as depression.

Keeping weight under control.

Gaining weight is not uncommon during lockdowns and can also contribute to health problems. Good exercise and nutrition practices can help us avoid unwanted weight gain.

A fitness program prevents decline in body coordination, and muscle and joint mobility.

Keep on track by setting goals.

Setting specific, measurable goals, whether on a daily or weekly basis, enables you to follow your health and fitness regime easily. For example, you could designate 15 minutes or an hour per day for exercise whether indoor or out, or alternately specify the number of physical movements, such as sit-ups, that you will complete in a given time frame. Many people may be surprised that the sense of accomplishment gives them as much of a lift as the physical exhilaration.

Excercise better – not less.

Being realistic.

You know your body and the level of activity that you’ve been getting, so if you’re starting a new workout regime, tailor it to start in shorter bursts, particularly if you’ve been sedentary for a while. Personal trainers are attuned to a client’s needs and can design an exercise program that’s right for you.

The importance of healthy nutrition.

A healthy and balanced diet goes hand in hand with physical exercise to ensure your wellbeing and fitness. Yes, it helps reduce weight, but healthy eating also helps reduce the risks of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and osteoporosis. A healthy diet can strengthen your ability to fight off or recover from illness and injury, and the Picks PT Team offers expert nutritional guidance, by assessing your needs and providing education on the right foods for your lifestyle.

The digital age has made changing the time on our devices so much easier.

Most devices do it for us.

Changing our body clock is something altogether different.

Give yourself a fighting chance and stop playing the catch-up game.

Be smart and hit your bed an hour earlier.
