When COVID-19 first chased us into our homes, some people might have been a little excited.
They thought to themselves: “At last! I have the time I need to pick up those hobbies and meet my personal goals. I’m going to come out of this pandemic a better version of myself!”
Or so they thought.
Turns out, being stuck at home can throw off the old rhythms on which you relied. It only takes a week or two for motivation to fizzle out. We have more free time, but we are less productive than ever. Meanwhile, unhealthy habits are setting in. People are chain-snacking and leading less active lives.

Ask yourself: How do I want to improve my health? Whether you want to burn calories, build muscle, or start a new diet, there’s something here for you. And the best part? It’s all free, so you can start today.
Don’t be part of a second health crisis. Stay safe. Stay strong. Come out of this healthier than you were going in. It will cost nothing but your sweat. Take a look at our free online workout tools and resources!
