We never imagined a time like this. A time where the majority of people would be working from home, socially distancing, and avoiding or simply unable to visit places such a cafes, bars, shops and the gym. The recent COVID-19 Pandemic has really changed the way we live our lives, both currently and most definitely into the future too. We will never again take for granted the freedom of being able to go out for lunch with friends, go grocery shopping without even a thought, or attending a simple group Pilates class.
It is a time where we have all learnt to live with less, and focus on what really matters most - our mental and physical HEALTH + WELLBEING. When we are emotionally and physically fit, we are able to better withstand stress and fight off sickness. At Fleur Wellbeing it has always been our mission to positively impact the lives of our community through health and fitness and we are so lucky to be able to continue this through Online Class offerings. So how do we stay engaged and motivated when working out from home? How to we make time and create space for ourselves? What are the benefits from working out at home? This time now, is an amazing opportunity to learn to take our self care seriously and in turn radiate positivity and health out into the world.
BENEFITS OF WORKING OUT AT HOME
With our online classes, you can choose when to do a class according to your OWN SCHEDULE. Classes vary in length and focus so that you can tune into what your body is needing that day and pick a workout that is best for you and do it whenever it fits in with your day.
We are also FLEXIBLE with props, if you don't have certain props you can always use household items such as canned foods in place of weights, cushions instead of Pilates Balls and dining chairs in place of the Ballet Barre. It's a great time to get creative!
HOW TO STAY MOTIVATED
Schedule it in - PLAN out your day and make the time for yourself to reset. Your body and mind with thank you! You might find that the best time for you is first thing in the morning after you wake up, fitting in a class as a lunchtime reset or finishing off the day with a workout to relieve tension and wind down at the end of a busy day. The possibilities are endless and the choice is yours! Just think of how you feel once you've completed a workout, even if it was a short one - it doesn't matter! You will always feel better and can benefit from some MOVEMENT no matter how big or small.
Clear some SPACE for your workouts - If you have a spare room, perhaps dedicate that area to your workout space, set up your mat and props so that each time you walk in they are ready and waiting for you. if you don't have a spare room, perhaps have a little "Workout Box" where you keep your mat and props ready to pull out when you're ready to move. Make it easily accessible and you are much more likely to feel motivated.
Also, share it with us! We love staying connected with our clients and community, so why not tag us in your social media posts and stories, and together let's inspire others out there to take time out for themselves too!
