What is the best way to stay fit during the coronavirus pandemic? Show more Show less

Being mandated to stay inside for extended periods mean that opportunities to keep fit during the COVID-19 epidemic are limited. As we suffer from greatly reduced access to activity and move to a largely sedentary lifestyle, how can we make sure we stay fit?

Indoor fitness Show more Show less

As gyms close, your house can become your gym - with the added bonus of no sweat-drenched equipment or athlete's foot from the showers.

Context

The Argument

If you count steps, it's likely that you will see a major drop in the daily count once isolation begins. Housewalking is a way to get around this.[1] The idea is simple - simply walk in your house, either walking around or in place. This way you can get the step count up while doing anything you want! The founder of housewalking, Lisa Lillien, states that "the best part of house walking is that it's fun. It’s a great feeling to look at your pedometer after strolling around the house and see how many steps you’ve racked up."[2]
