Dealing with the pandemic this year has been a struggle for me, as it has been for the whole world. Taking care of my mental and physical health has not been as easy as in past years. When everything shut down in March, all I had at home was an old, stationary bike, which is more than what a lot of people have. As someone who taught and participated in CrossFit six times a week, this was quite the change. Thankfully, this summer, Minnesota was kind to us, and I was able to play sand volleyball most days. Even though I was uncertain when I would go back to work, I was able to get outside and make the most of the time that I was given. Positivity was key!
With winter here and gyms not at full capacity, it is important to keep moving while still staying safe. If you are not feeling comfortable going back to the gym during this time, having a workout routine at home will still be an option! Creativity, fun, and moving your body in the house is all you need! Here are some ideas requiring no equipment to keep you moving:

Starting from when she was a little girl, Hillary’s passion has always been in living a healthy way of life through movement and eating right. She played many sports when growing up but ended up sticking with volleyball and softball through college at Concordia College in Moorhead. While at Concordia, she earned a double major in exercise science and nutrition, graduating in 2015. After moving to the cities from my long-time home of the Fargo area, she was not quite sure what her passion was until she started working as a personal trainer. She learned from brilliant personal trainers and physical therapists, which led to her discovery of corrective exercise being her passion. She has decided to finish up the classes needed to apply for physical therapy school, which she plans on doing soon! She is excited to be at Live Your Life Physical Therapy to learn as much as she can from Dr. Norman and all the physical therapist on staff!
