This month marks one year since the pandemic gripped the country and forced us to change and adapt in ways we’d never quite imagined.
In most areas, gyms and other small businesses were forced to close their doors for months. But that didn’t mean fitness had to stop. We just had to find different and more creative ways to get it done.
And if you ask me, the skills we learned and resilience we showed during various shutdowns in 2020 will serve us extremely well as things slowly return to some semblance of normalcy in 2021.
I think we have better and more effective ways to be fit and healthy than ever before. In my experience, the following things will matter more than ever when it comes to achieving the body and health that you want:
Technology: Results are no longer 100% based on geography. You can spend time at a fitness facility as well as supplement your gym workouts with structured home workouts (live or on-demand) to amplify your results.
Accountability: In the “old days,” chances are the only time you interacted with your trainer was when you were in person for your weekly sessions. Now, you can receive coaching, accountability and support during the “Other 365” hours of the week. And as we’re learning, that’s where most of your outcomes are determined.
Overall Wellness: If the pandemic taught us anything, it’s that we need to prioritize supporting our immune system. So access to services like healthy meal plans and high-quality, immunity-boosting supplements is going to be a game-changer.
These are just a few of the things that changed over the past year, and frankly, made health and fitness more important — and more accessible — than ever before.
What’s one way you’ve been able to adapt your fitness routine over the past year? Shoot me a reply and let me know.
