Going back to a traditional gym after months of working out at home isn’t an easy transition. If you want to make this change and join your favorite fitness class again, here are a couple of important steps you should take first.
Manage Your Expectations
In order to function safely after lockdown, many gyms embraced a long list of new safety measures. Familiarize yourself with these changes so you could ensure the safety of those around you, as well as your own.
Take It Slow
You shouldn’t immediately go back to your pre-quarantine routine if you weren’t equally active during your home workouts. Take things slow in the beginning, and increase the intensity of your workouts once you ease back into your old routine.
Going back to the gym after lockdown may be an anxiety-inducing experience, and you shouldn’t force yourself into doing it if it doesn’t suit you. If it turns out your home routine is much more enjoyable than your gym routine, just commit to whatever makes you feel better.
