Your Guide To A Fitter 2021
Man's World|February 2021
Yes, it’s still a pandemic. Yes, it’s even more essential to ensure you’re fit and healthy. Here’s everything you can do to keep working out and becoming fitter, indoors and outdoors
Sanika Achrekar

If 2020 has taught us anything, it is that you can do everything without physically going outside. You can enjoy quick, effective workouts of all sorts in the comfort of your own home, and there’s no shortage of online workout classes and plans. When the lockdowns and quarantine initially started, all of us were quite sure that we would be getting out in the open in the next 15 to 20 days, which was an understandable time to go without going to gyms and doing hardcore workouts. But it’s almost going to be a year to quarantine and its trends, which also included home workouts and online sessions.

We took to transforming our living rooms and bedrooms into our very own at-home gyms, complete with skipping ropes, yoga mats, and dumbbells. Even when restrictions were lifted and the gyms opened up, people still hesitated to go to the gym, and the thought of running on a treadmill with five sweaty men doing the same on another machine is still anxiety-inducing.

In 2021, the main motive is to enhance workouts at home.

Talking about fitness goals for 2021, Rishi Baveja, the co-founder of BoxFit said, “Fitness goals are always individual and person-specific — it's you versus you. Given that 2020 is something we'd all like to put behind us, I recommend starting with small, but achievable goals. I think we currently have two camps of people. The first were those who were gym regulars before the pandemic. These people would have lost a lot of gym-obtained fitness, and to expect your body to jump back into doing what you could when you were working out regularly with access to a gym, is going to be a tough ask. The second group is those who have only gotten into fitness during the lockdown. We, at BoxFit, saw almost 50 percent of new people enroll in our online programs. It's a great trend to see. These people should look at building upon the fitness foundations they have set, and continue the momentum into 2021. This, however, still includes goal setting and a structured program.”
