#WFH, how about #EFH? (exercising from home)


About 9 million Australians commute to and from work everyday. The average Australia city working commute time (on average) is 66minutes.


66-minutes... That's an hour long yoga class plus 6mins of meditation, that's a full body gym workout with stretching time, that's 2 reformer pilates classes, you can walk 5.2km...


There's always a silver lining with every circumstance we find ourselves in, unfortunately and fortunately; most of us find ourselves #WFH (working from home) amid this Covid-19 world crisis.


Gyms, local pools, pilates & yoga studios, exercise classes are mostly operating at a reduced capacity currently in Australia; there's not a whole lot of options for exercising, are there?

Before you go and impulse purchase a 2.5k home gym set up or buy a pilates reformer bed, keep reading.

Depending on your level of previous exercise levels & activity, there's a heap of exercise options available during your #WFH stint. Focus on 3 areas of exercises.


Cardiovascular exercises: Spend some time outdoors, go for a cycle, walk or a run. Spending time in nature helps focus, ground & you can put a favourite podcast on. And it's free!


Strength based mat exercises: Buy a yoga mat online; push ups, sit ups, crunches, planks and especially hip opening stretches are crucial to those of us who are sitting most of the day.


Higher intensity exercises: Body weight exercises; squats, deadlifts, burpees and jumping jacks are some of the great ways you can put a quick circuit together and get the heart rate up!


For those who might have a pre-existing injury or condition, speak to your physiotherapist first, a range of tele-health consults options are available now!
