Losing Weight After Quarantine

Many of us have adopted a less active lifestyle when we were stuck at home. We move less and eat more due to boredom or stress. A recent study has shown that the average American has gained about 5 pounds over the course of the quarantine period, and 49% of respondents are afraid they won’t get their pre-quarantine body back. Here are some tips on how to achieve quarantine weight loss and feel fit again!

In order to lose weight,  you’ll need to create a caloric deficit, which means the amount you burn must exceed the amount you take in. That can be achieved through physical activity and/or eating healthier. Try a combination of the following for the most effective results.

Cardiovascular Exercise

Any form of cardiovascular exercise – such as jogging, swimming, or biking – is great for burning calories. The great thing about cardio exercise is that it comes in many varieties – so choose the one you will … Continue reading

What are Your Post-Quarantine Fitness Goals?

Unfortunately, the current pandemic situation has either altered or halted the New Year’s resolution goals we set at the start of the year. However, as Chicago fitness clubs slowly reopen and return to a new normal, we can use this as an opportunity to set new, post-quarantine fitness goals.

A New Starting Point

Over 80% of people have had given up on their New Year’s fitness goals by March, right before the pandemic affected fitness centers. While some were still continuing their fitness routine at that time, the motivation to work on resolutions tends to disappear as the year goes on. After several months of the clubs being closed, we weren’t able to exercise in our typical fashion and some of us might have stopped altogether when quarantined at home. Thus, you may have felt like all your progress and momentum evaporated. And that’s ok. Now is your time to start again.

This pandemic may have changed what we were … Continue reading
