Don’t Let Physical Distancing Keep You from Moving!

These are challenging times and we need to do everything we can to protect our physical, mental and emotional well-being during the coronavirus pandemic. One of the best ways to do that is with movement, but that can be difficult since most Americans need to practice physical distancing and stay-at-home guidelines to keep the disease from spreading.

AICR recommends getting at least 150 minutes of physical activity a week, per its Cancer Prevention Recommendations. Being physically active and exercising can lower your cancer risk, help you have a healthy weight and lessen your risk for numerous chronic diseases.

So, how can we stay active? With fitness centers and gyms being closed and exercise classes being cancelled, we are left on our own to get creative. And that’s what this podcast episode is all about – getting creative when it comes to exercising during physical distancing.

We need to keep our bodies moving and Samantha Clayton is here to help us do that. Samantha is a certified personal trainer with specialty certifications in group fitness, youth fitness programming, senior fitness and athletic conditioning.
