5 Indoor Activities To Keep You Fit During Lockdown

Activities we enjoy and find fun can help motivate you to stay fit. With lockdown back in effect, many outdoor activity centres and gyms have temporarily shut, limiting your fitness options.

For those who aren’t lucky enough to have an indoor gym, the same old exercise routine can get a bit boring. Watching videos online and exercising loses its appeal quickly too. This has left people trying to figure out different ways to stay healthy. Getting creative with fitness need not necessarily be a challenge with many different ideas you could consider.

Avalanche Adventure has put together our top picks for keeping fit indoors! We have prepared a list of fun indoor activities to keep you fit and motivated during this lockdown. Whether you do them by yourself or with your family, it is guaranteed to keep you motivated to exercise.

Let’s begin!

 1. Dancing

While being a fun activity, dancing also has various health benefits. It is a workout for your entire body. Dancing helps increase strength and endurance while also improving your balance and strength.

A 30-minute dance workout, done sincerely every day, can help significantly boost your health. While you’re at it, you could probably experiment and learn different dance styles that you’ve always wished to try out. A perfect combination of fitness and fun, dancing is a great indoor fitness activity you could try out with your close ones.

2. Yoga

A very popular activity, yoga is a great way of training your mind and body. The lockdown might have left you a little stressed-out so yoga is the perfect way to let it out. When compared to other forms of workout, yoga is much more subtle and calm.

Yoga has innumerable health benefits that can work wonders for you. It can help you stay calm and collected, increase flexibility, and improve body functions. There are different types of yoga you could try out to stay in shape and involving your family can make it even more fun!

3. Gardening

Believe it or not, gardening is a form of workout. Who would have thought? Various studies show that gardening can help boost your body. In fact, 30 to 45 minutes of gardening can help you burn up to 300 calories.

Similar to yoga, gardening helps the mind and body. It can have a calming effect on your mind that helps you relax. Gardening strengthens your muscles, especially your forearms, and when done correctly, it can also help you lose weight. Even if you don’t have a green thumb, you can still have fun gardening.

4. Motion Gaming

Motion gaming requires the player to interact with the gaming system through body movements. Gaming consoles that offer motion gaming have a variety of different games that could help you stay fit. 

PlayStation and Nintendo Wii both have motion gaming functionality. Motion gaming is fun and helps you develop skills but it also serves as a workout for your body. Games like skiing, tennis, golf, football, etc can help you workout while also enjoying the game. With more strides into immersion in gaming, it’s likely we’ll see more technology in this field, combining digital fun with exercise . 

5. Chores

Before you say anything, we didn’t say that all 5 activities would be fun. Although not particularly entertaining, household chores have proven to help the body in many ways. Studies show that household chores can be just as effective as running or walking. Staying at home seems to have increased the number of chores, however, you could turn this into something positive that will benefit you.

Simple chores like cleaning the dishes or vacuuming can help strengthen your muscles. Clearing out your kitchen clutter can help you improve your eating habits. Chores are necessary, whether we like it or not. So why not make the most of it? And although you might not enjoy them in the moment, there’s a certain gratification from standing back and admiring your handiwork.
