    I stopped getting consistent exercise when shelter in place restrictions happened and my apartment shut down the little gym I used and as I wasn't walking to work anymore.

    Getting back into the grove now as I've walked nearly every day for about a month, or 27/30 days. I miss the elliptical the gym had though. Considering getting an exercise bike that I can use in my apartment as it starts to get hotter here, I'd definitely get more exercise in that way as I liked using the elliptical while watching shows on my iPad.

    So gyms here opened up in limited capacity and I gotta admit I went on the first day. During the lockdown I had bought a weight bench and some weights and have been doing resistance exercises and biking/walking. But that first day at the gym kicked my ass. I can’t even jog right now because my arms and chest are so sore. I also decided not to go back because I noticed people not wiping down or washing hands.

    It hurts to look in the mirror and see all the progress I've lost in the last two months.
    I don't understand why I was able to go to the gym 5 times a week, yet I can't discipline myself to work out at home at all. I need my gym back!

    Been doing jumping jacks in between sets of some of my at home workouts, definitely helps build up a sweat. Kind of in a rythym now with the stuff at home but I'm sure I'm when I go back to the gym it's gonna kick my ass since all I have at home is dumbells

    Barbell? I haven't heard that name in years

    Seriously though, I'm in such a funk without the gym. Its a massive stress relief for me and not having that outlet has been tough on my mental and physical health for the past two months. I'm the worst at working out at home, legit zero motivation. I've realized I need the gym atmosphere to keep me focused. There's just too many distractions at home and the lack of a dedicated workout area is tough. Luckily I've been doing a decent job at keeping up with a high protein, low carb diet and haven't gained any noticeable fat. Think I've lost at like 5-8lb in muscle mass though which sucks.

    Hey. Supporter

    Does anyone use / pay for any fitness apps? I’ve been doing bodyweight exercises while at home. I believe our gyms are opening back up come June 1, but I don’t feel comfortable going, so curious if anyone has any app recs in the interim.

    The Nike+ app is what I always recommend. Good amount of free and paid content. The paid stuff is free til July I think. Good variety of bodyweight and basic equipment workouts, with some yoga and mobility too. Believe workouts go up to an hour, but definitely worth checking out.

    Went to the gym, feel amazing. Still feel nervous about the safety of it all. Cleaned the machines before and after I used them and they had every other one blocked off so people weren't close, and there weren't many ppl there. Idk. Physically I feel great, mentally I'm a lil paranoid now

    I went the first day they opened and haven’t been back since. I want to go back but now this job I’m working is literally the hours of the gym so I can’t ever make it now

    I’d wish they’d open the little apartment gym here. Not a ton of people use it normally and restricting to one at a time and then wiping down the machines before and after would be simple.

    but I don’t know how safe that would still be.

    I got a migraine after having a green smoothie recently. The migraine was unrelated but I ended up throwing up right after drinking the smoothie and now I'm put off them and I'm so sad cause they were such a quick and easy thing

    Went to the gym before work this morning! That only happens like 3 times a year because I am not a morning person. I also tried the elliptical which for whatever reason I've always been terrible at moreso than the other cardio machines. Lasted 10 minutes lol

    I was scared to the try the elliptical for the longest time. And the first time I tried the stair stepper I gave up at 7 minutes

  23. Same, love the elliptical because of the no impact on my legs. Running fucks me up these days unfortunately.
