Coronavirus fitness: Boston trainers share best at-home workout tips

Kelli Fierras, a registered dietitian and trainer at EveryBodyFights:

  • “Schedule out your week just as you would schedule and sign up for classes at a regular gym. If you don’t make a plan, you’re most likely not going to stick to anything specific. Carve out that time and build your work schedule around it. Sit down each Sunday and figure out which days you’re going to rest, which days are going to be upper body or lower body, and just write it down.”

  • “You don’t need heavy weights. If you have a child, like myself, use them as a weight and do squats. … I used wine bottles the other day for bicep curls. You could use soup cans or a gallon of water. If you’re on the couch, use it to do tricep dips.”

  • “Running is free. You can get outside and get fresh air, even if it’s for a walk-jog. You might see people on the other side of the road who you can smile and wave to. The other day, I went running and a stranger all the way on the other side of the highway just waved to me and it literally made my day.”
