Staying Healthy While Sheltering in Place

Keep moving!  

Get outside, responsibly! Health experts encourage short trips, near your home, for fitness. Should you choose to venture out, please go alone or with close family members and keep 6 feet away from others.

Your home is an amazing gym.  You don’t need a full set of dumbbells and racks of heavyweights to build muscle and burn calories. Push-ups, sit-ups, planks, squats and lunges are just a few exercises you can do with just your own body weight. There’s also plenty of fitness apps, online exercise programs and videos on demand to guide you through everything from weight workouts, dance, yoga and more. Included below are a few to get you going:
