Weekly Updates + How Are Your Habits?

May 8, 2020

How are you doing out there 212? Hopefully you are stayingsafe and healthy as we continue to make progress in the fight against COVID-19!


Next week’s training schedule will remain the same as thisweek’s-with plenty of Zoom options and a few in person open gym trainingsessions. I know that some of you have expressed concern about working out at212 with a face covering. We are following the guidelines in Governor Herbert’sdirective as well as the county health order which states “employees must wearface coverings; patrons encouraged to wear face coverings whenever possible”.We’re encouraging those of you who come in to focus on strength work, and thecoverings haven’t been too annoying for those who have come in. Thanks for yourpatience and support as we work try to work our way through this transition!


This next month or two will most likely continue to involvelots of change. It can be very challenging to maintain your healthy habits-sleep, nutrition, exercise, stress reduction-when things are in flux. I’vefound it’s helpful for me to take things one day at a time. When I’m in anormal routine, I can just hop out of bed and roll right into my healthyhabits. During the past few months, I’ve found it helpful to take an extra10-15 minutes at the start of my day to make a plan. I like to write out arough schedule, but it doesn’t even have to be that complicated. Just make amental list of the 3 most important things you want to accomplish today inregards to your health, and prioritize them. You may also find it’s helpful totake a full 30-60 minute lunch break to make a healthy meal and mentally reset.This is especially important for those of us working from home. Remember,there’s so much out of our control-don’t waste energy worrying about thosethings. Focus your effort on the few things that you CAN control!
