Keeping Healthy at Home

As social distancing and self-isolating are becoming common, and we are no longer able to offer our members our clubs to train in, we’ve been coming up with ways to help Novocastrians stay fit and healthy at home. From virtual workouts to making the most out of your home environment, here’s how the Planet Fitness team can help you stay active while at home.

It is recommended that adults should do strength exercises, as well as 150 minutes of moderate activity, or 75 minutes of vigorous activity, every week. But how can you achieve that when gyms and sporting facilities across the country are closed, and we are being asked to stay home where possible? You may be worried your fitness will suffer over the coming months, but even though Planet Fitness isn't physically still here to help you out, we are still committed to putting your health and fitness first.

While you may not be able to stick to your regular routine of leaving the house, going shopping, meeting friends, and coming to the gym, you can create a new routine at home which includes alternative ways to keep active. As tempting as it may be to stay in your PJs all day, in the long run, this is bound to harm your overall mood.
