How to Get a Killer Summer Bod While Gyms Are Still Closed

Worried about how you'll get that killer summer bod you always wanted now that all the gyms are closed? While it's definitely tougher without fitness facilities, there's still plenty of ways to get ripped using at-home workouts. 

As COVID continues to keep gyms and fitness facilities shuttered due to the high number of common touch surfaces that are inherent in such operations, many people are starting to get worried that their summer fitness plans have gone up in smoke. That doesn't have to be the case though. Here are a few ways you can get the summer body you want while working out like a boss at home.

How to Get a Killer Summer Bod While Gyms Are Still Closed

Just because gyms are closed that doesn't mean fitness programs or workouts are. While it can be a lot more difficult to stay motivated without the gym open, there are still plenty of things you can do at home to get the summer body you've always wanted. It just takes a bit more discipline and gumption to do so. 

Bodyweight exercises

Bodyweight exercises are perfect for at-home workouts. There's no equipment (aside from a workout mat maybe) and the exercises can be done in any room you want. Some bodyweight exercises that can help you get the summer body you're after include: 

  • Push-ups
  • Squats
  • Lunges
  • Planks
  • Leg lifts
Resistance band exercises

Taking it up a notch from bodyweight exercises, resistance band exercises require minimal equipment while packing maximum results. Available in a wide variety of resistance strengths, exercises with these tools are built to shape and sculpt lean muscle. Some of the best resistance band exercises include: 

  • Bicep curls
  • Lunges
  • Squats
  • Shoulder press
  • Tricep extension
  • Standing row

Looking for an online fitness trainer Calgary? Jensen Fitness has been putting together online personal training programs well before COVID struck and has the expertise and experience you need to get the most out of your workouts.

Begin jogging or walking

With the warmer weather of summer comes more opportunities to get outside and take advantage of this far too brief respite from winter in Calgary. If running or jogging really isn't your thing, try to at least go for a few walks around your neighbourhood or head up to the mountains for some weekend hiking. We're truly blessed to have them in our own backyard, and they look even more beautiful up close. 

Hire a virtual personal trainer

If you know you'll have trouble committing to any of the above at-home workouts or staying motivated enough to do them, then it may be a good idea for you to hire a virtual personal trainer. Virtual personal training is as close as it gets to being in the gym with a real-life trainer during COVID, and the scheduled workouts will hold you accountable. With tailored programs that focus on exactly what it is you want to achieve, a virtual personal trainer from Jensen Fitness can help you get the summer body you've always been after before August rolls around.
