FITNESS DURING ISOLATION

Keeping on track at home has meant modifying my workouts, but staying active is how I have been able to cope with the isolation.

Muscle and bone loss are a part of ageing, but there is a step we can take to slow down that process.

Strength training (using weights or your body weight) is excellent for maintaining healthy bones and muscle mass. With as little as 20-30 minutes 2-3 times a week, you will not only see and feel the improvements, but ensure you have strength and mobility as you get older.

Some of the other proven benefits are:
• Weight loss – muscle burns fat, so the more muscle mass you have, the better you will be able to metabolize fat
• Reduced risk of chronic disease such as diabetes, heart disease and arthritis
• Improved mobility and flexibility
• Improved mood
• Improved sleep

In combination with eating a plant based diet and drinking plenty of water, you will be able to maintain a healthy body weight, reduce inflammation and stay mobile!
