5 Gift Ideas to Keep You Fit in Quarantine

By Janelle @ Run With No Regrets | fitness , nutrition

I hope you’re doing well and in good health! The COVID-19 pandemic has been devastating across the globe and until vaccines are universally available, it looks like we won’t be going back to our normal lives any time soon.

Still, we do our best to move forward, and many of us have found that keeping physically active has been a great stress reliever.

Sadly, in Philadelphia, indoor gyms have been closed again and we’re all bracing for the next big wave of COVID-19 outbreaks. So how we can still keep fit while being stuck back at home?

I thought it would be helpful to share a few fitness products worth buying and using while we’re in quarantine. Whether you want to get this for yourself or for friends/family, I hope that the recipient uses the gift as motivation to keep active during these challenging times.

If you’re anything like me, you’re always looking for a healthy snack.    I’ve tried making products from scratch, but I’m a pretty lazy cook – so having something easy to grab on the go is a necessity.   I have tried so many different brands but was never satisfied – either they were too sweet, too chalky, or too expensive.  But I think I’ve finally found a keeper with the Health Warrior Chia Bars!  Keep reading to check out my review!
