Staying healthy during COVID-19 lockdown

There is no doubt we are going through a challenge period in time now with this COVID-19 virus. Physical and mental health is all the all the more important! Now that gyms have been forced to close — what can you do? how can you stay motivated? Well, I have a few suggestions for you…

1. Personal Trainers
This is a perfect time to reach out to a personal trainer, not only to help you with a tailored exercise routine that fits your needs best, but also to motivate you and get you going. Also, personal trainers, fitness instructors, as many others, are in serious need of our support as their livelihood is based on working with people and often at gyms. If you would like recommendations for trainers in NYC or Washington, DC, let me know.
