Fitness regime is about developing a system that helps to keep you fit physically and mentally.

Initially due to closing down of gyms and parks, people were forced to sit at home and become couch-potato for almost like 6 months.

It has not only caused anxiety problems but also people are experiencing panic attacks episodes from time to time.

The only way to combat this kind of unavoidable situation is to keep moving no matter where, how and when? 

Going outside is not a good option these days. Keep moving in your living room is not a bad idea either.

Dancing on your favorite numbers keep you moving

If you are not in a mood for doing systematic moves in the form of workouts you can do dancing and aerobics but main point is to keep moving for better mental and heart health.

Many people who use to be inactive are now gaining strength to start hoping and popping within their living rooms.

This idea might sound boring for those who are extroverts and love to run on daily basis. But it is not a bad idea for busy moms and lazy dudes who do not want to go out in parks or hit their gyms.
