With orders to stay home in effect across Texas this month due to the COVID-19 and Coronavirus pandemic, many people who had previously been visiting gyms and tracks to stay fit are finding themselves at a loss for what to do. If staying fit is a priority of yours and you’re wondering how to do so during this period of social distancing, here are a few options you can look to below.

1. Do Stairs at Home

One of the 1990s exercise passions was that of “steppers,” or doing stairs. Originally, you could do this on your own staircases at home, without the need to purchase additional equipment. Those of you who still have your own stepper equipment can also put those to use, but if you simply have a staircase you can practice on, perhaps challenge yourself to work up the number of reps you can do without overdoing it. It’s a great way of working on your cardio while staying fit.

2. Ride Your Bike

Staying socially distant doesn’t mean you can’t go outdoors. It simply means you need to stay relatively close to home and don’t gather in groups, in addition to keeping a minimum amount of respectful feet apart from others. Those of you who already own a bike can put this time on your hands to good use by taking it out for a ride. Whether just at your home, on a proper bike stand with added resistance for training, or around your neighborhood, bicycling can be an excellent way of staying fit.

3. Check Out an Online Cardio Routine

Many classes and programs for cardio have gone online in recent years, aiming for the client base who wanted to participate but didn’t want to go to a gym to do so. Those programs and trainers are ahead of the curve in this period of social distancing and staying at home. As a result, you too can experience everything they have to offer simply by logging on. Many trainers also have handy apps that you can download to your phones for the purpose of tracking participation, calorie burn, and providing added tips for staying fit.

4. Practice Yoga – Indoors or Out
