Keeping Your Daughter Active During Social Distancing

by MaryAnne Gucciardi April 22, 2020 2 min read

With the pandemic Covid-19 causing a complete shake-up of our way of life, stress and worry can easily take its toll, not only for ourselves but for our girls. Their reality now includes school cancellations, online learning, practice and game cancellations and being socially distanced from their friends and teammates. The prospect of staying at home for any prolonged amount of time can seem overwhelming and worrisome. Downright boring for active girls who are used to being on the move.  Offering normally athletic girls ways to remain active can help them manage stress and maintain their current fitness.

Gratefully, companies have been stepping up with a host of free fitness opportunities online to keep your daughter moving. Taking advantage of these virtual offerings can allow girls to stay fit and strong during a time when it’s easy to lose momentum, and worry that the lack of team practices will leave them less than ready once they finally return to sports.

Below is a list of resources that include offerings such as online boot camps and yoga sessions, free apps to download featuring work out sessions to keep your daughter (and you!) moving. We located some helpful links for at-home conditioning and interval sessions that target certain sports for those searching for something more specific.

  • YMCA VIRTUAL 360 CLASSES - Free Bootcamp, Yoga, and Barre sessions.

  • WORKOUT BUDDIES - Downloadable fitness app that allows connecting with friends.

  • FITNESS BLENDER - Offers opportunities to filter and select specific types of free workouts based on length of workout desired, type of training, etc.

  • LACROSSE CONDITIONING - Sample conditioning routine for staying in Lacrosse fit condition during downtime.

  • BASKETBALL WORKOUT - Basketball inspired interval workout.

  • VOLLEYBALL CONDITIONING - Ten-minute video workout that combines cardio, strength training, and plyometrics.

Our goal is to make sure that both you and your family feel supported during a time when anxiety can be at a critical level. Please feel free to share this list of resources with others in your community and let’s help manage the stress together by staying healthy and keeping active.

Stay safe and be well.
