What to Do When the Fitness Center is Closed

Tips for Staying Active During Social Distancing

Union Green residents love our state-of-the-art fitness center and our yoga/barre studio, but at the moment, those areas are closed due to state social distancing regulations. When you’re accustomed to hitting the gym every day, suddenly losing that option may leave you wondering how you can get a challenging daily workout. We’ve got a few ideas to share!

Step it Up

If you have an aerobic step platform, or an object that you can safely use as one, the simple step-up exercise is a great way to build strength and endurance. You can add resistance by holding a few free weights as you place one foot on the platform, then raise the other and hold that position before lowering that foot to the ground. 

Get Creative

Don’t have your own set of free weights? Make your own – a full water jug or bottle of laundry detergent can be good substitutes for a weight. If you’re looking for a hands-free way to add more challenge to your workout, put a heavy item in a backpack and wear it while doing lunges (or even while vacuuming). Just be sure the weight is close to your body and is evenly distributed. 

Do Burpees

The burpee is one of those exercises that people hate as much as they love. This high-intensity bodyweight exercise works almost every muscle in the body, and adding burpees to your daily routine can produce significant results in just a few weeks. Do take a look at videos on proper form and read up on how to gradually increase reps. 

Go for a Spin

Cycling is an excellent cardio exercise. If you don’t have a bike and are thinking of buying one, you don’t need to worry about where to put it – Union Green has a secure bicycle storage area. 

Hang in There

We look forward to safely reopening our fitness areas (and our saltwater pool) when permitted to do so. Even without access to those amenities, Union Green is a great place to live. Take a look at a new approach to luxury living. We’re now offering virtual tours and online leasing – call us today at (317) 653-3307.
