Coronavirus has closed your gym and fitness facilities. This certainly sucks. Whether it’s a new weight loss plan, maintaining muscle growth, or simply being fit, if you’re Canadian, you don’t have access to your regular gym anymore.
Don’t be down on yourself! You can still sweat it out at home. Stay fit with the right fitness accessories and a home workout routine. We know it’s not ideal. We’re not saying it’s the best thing ever BUT until we’re given the all-clear to start working out again publicly, home workouts are your best bet. Here are a few key home workout accessories for coronavirus to pick up.
Skipping is still one of the most effective cardio routines in the world. Boxers use it. MMA fighters use it. All sorts of athletes use it to keep themselves in the best cardiovascular condition of their lives. When you can’t go for a run and don’t have an elliptical or stairs to jump on, an adjustable jump skipping rope is a perfect home workout solution.
