Okay, hands up if you miss the gym. I'm doing the best I can to recreate some kind of structure over here, but it's still tough to get out of my bathrobe every morning, shower and eat breakfast before noon – let alone attempt cardio. But if you're struggling, too, I have the kind of retail therapy that might help.
New gear always motivates me to actually get moving, and right now, Sport Chek has clearance shoes, clothes and equipment at up to 70% off! There's something for every single member of your family – and all their interests – here, but I'm going to focus on things you'll be able to use during this pandemic.
I started a daily yoga practice at the end of March, and it's really helped me to relax and stretch out after sitting hunched over my laptop for hours at a time. If you want to use this time to try yoga out but don't have the gear, you can order this Gaiam Beginner's Yoga Kit for $5 off the regular price. It's selling FAST, so grab one while you still can. It includes a yoga mat, block, strap and DVD to guide you at first.
I also do a medicine ball workout most evenings and rely on gloves like these CoolSwitch Flux Training Gloves to help me grip the ball while I do my curls, twists and squats. This pair is sized a little smaller than most (since it's made for women) and now sells for $15.97, instead of the usual $21.97.
You may also want to invest in a SPRI Dynamic Recovery Flat Band Loop and other gear to help you wind down and stretch out – especially if you can't do a recovery treadmill run or walk laps around the track right now. I love the rollers included in this Energetics Pro Series Recovery Set, and the kit is down to just $51.97.
Finally, there are some times we just have to go outside. Whether that's grocery runs, daily walks with the dog or just trips around the block to help you destress, you might need a new raincoat for the job. There are a few marked down, but I especially like this Columbia Preston Hollow Hooded Rain Jacket. It's marked down to $89.97 from $149.99, and ALL sizes are still in stock!
