How to stay in shape while working from home

Tips to regain your fitness to create a healthy workday routine.

MINNEAPOLIS — With Minnesotans now in month four of quarantine, there is no question the days stuck working from home have significantly impacted peoples’ health and well-being. 

Casey Bloemke, the owner and head fitness instructor at Farrell’s eXtreme Bodyshaping in the North Loop, Minneapolis, provides tips people can use to regain their fitness and create a healthy workday routine:

  1. Structure: People need structure — set time for yourself to get up and do something and be realistic with your goals: start working out a few times a week and build up.
  2. Community: Find community — people aren’t made to be alone/aren’t wired that way. That’s where gyms like Farrell’s come into play where you have camaraderie and can work out together for motivation.
  3. Delete the Apps: You can’t outrun your fork, so don’t make it easy to order food that’s not healthy

Farrell’s recently opened its expanded location in the North Loop at 304 6th Avenue North. 

The company says its 1,800-square-foot expansion will house additional kickboxing and strength training rooms as demand for classes is on the rise.
