Health And Wellness

Corona is a now full-blown pandemic, rapidly spreading throughout the world. As of March 17, 2020, 4,226 people are reportedly infected with coronavirus in the United States alone. That may not seem like a lot, but the speed at which the number of those infected is what is truly alarming.

Due to the quickness at which the virus spreads, Italy ordered a nationwide quarantine on March 10th, with citizens banned from leaving their homes. Though the United States isn't quarantined, we are limiting unnecessary human exposure by practicing social distancing.

Due to CDC guidelines to reduce the spread of coronavirus, people who go to the gym every day are now stuck at home.

Luckily, there are ways to create your own home gym, full of equipment to keep you in shape.
