Stay Fit With SOMA 7/27
This week’s theme is Physical Activity!
Every week we post exercise videos, nutrition tips, and more on our blog to provide you with opportunities to stay fit and active even at home! This blog will focus on how to get physically active, even outside of sports practice.
There are many ways to be physically active. Certain kinds of exercise can help you improve the skills needed for your sport. It can even help other things in your life! Being physically active improves sleep, improves mood, and increases energy. It also helps lower blood pressure, manage weight, and strengthen bones.
Here are some examples of easy ways to get active:
- Walk around the house while you’re brushing your teeth
- Skip the drive-through and go inside
- Take the stairs
- Climb the escalator
- Use the restroom on a different floor
- Park on the outskirts of the parking lot or garage
- Do an extra lap around the perimeter of the mall or grocery store
While these shouldn’t be your only physical activity of the day, extra physical activity has great benefits! Join us on Zoom for Live Fitness this week, and keep reading for some exciting upcoming live fitness opportunities.
