Fresh Air & Exercise Needed

Exercise can clear your mind and help you sleep better.
Workouts should be adapted to your physical fitness level and eased into.  
Test movements at a slow pace to learn them correctly.

Exercise can boost your immune system. High-intensity workouts tend to reduce your immune system’s ability to fight off illness in the hours after the workout.  During the COVID-19 outbreak, our overall fitness including mental & physical well-being is most important, not intense training for elite fitness.

When we can't congregate, it can be fun to involve your friends & family through social media or group chats.
