Exercise Tips

During Covid, there have been some challenges for many to get exercise (especially when sitting in front of a computer for most of the day).

Certainly companies such as Peloton have profited from making a exercise system that is interactive and works with technology in your own home but at a very expensive price.

If you do belong (or did so before Covid) to the gym there are some ways to still get exercise from your own desk when the gym or fitness center isn't available.

There are many inexpsive options to do and it is good idea to pick one to avoid any future health concerns that I was made aware of when the gym was closed.

While the recommendations are to get 10,000 steps a day may seem like a lot, getting close to that amount is helpful for you as well.

On average, this how many miles that amount of steps walked goes:

#/Steps Miles
2,000-2,500 1
10,000 4-5

As you can see, it can take some time (during the day) to get those recommended 10,000 steps completed.
