The most common resolution which people take at any time of the year is to ‘Get Fit’. And with that, it is also the most failed pledge among a wide variety of resolutions. To make this situation even more tricky, the impact of COVID is making us constrained to stay indoors. Going to the gym, running, cycling, hiring a fitness expert or other such outdoor workout sessions are on hold amidst regular lockdowns and the risk of getting infected.
Staying inside our homes for such a long duration is an overwhelming experience. It is essential to beat these indoor blues and exercising regularly is one way to do this. All that one needs to execute a fitness routine is some floorspace, a laptop / mobile / TV and some guidance. Digital has dominated our lives in these times and that is exactly where we seek expert guidance.
