Individuals that are attempting to improve their health in an organized and safe manner should be allowed to do so.
I’m struggling to see the humor.
Social media is abuzz with references and jokes about the COVID-15 or Quarantine-15, whatever they want to call it.
I believe the movement started innocently as self-deprecating humor, poking fun at weight gain during the quarantine periods.
Where did 15 come from?
It’s a reference to 15-pounds of fat gain – as a comparison to the old Freshman-15.
The weight gain that a freshman in college would gain when they no longer had parental supervision and could eat and drink what they choose.
I understand that many people did gain weight during the quarantine.
- Lack of activities
- No gym/personal training
- No accountability (lack of parental supervision)
- No social interaction to keep appearances in the conscious mind
However, it was not anyone’s intention and the ramifications can be widespread and severe. I’ve been practicing exercise science and nutrition for the past 26-years. I can break my career into three purposeful phases:
- Phase One – weight loss, body fat loss, increase strength, look better.
- Phase Two – Phase One + prevent diabetes, heart disease, dementia, joint pain reduction, live longer, improve lifestyle and increased energy.
- Phase Three – Phase One + Two + improve immunity and thwart Underlying Conditions.
It has become clear in the past 90-days that in order to have a high likelihood of success with survival from this wave of COVID, the next wave or a different unknown future virus – you need to be fit and healthy. This means without the presence of Underlying Conditions. At the very least, having Underlying Conditions managed with something other than just drugs and medications. Let us learn and move forward in a positive direction with purposeful progress. It won’t happen by accident and I think it is foolish to think that any level of government can by itself protect you entirely. I know for many people I work with, this is important to you – and you can do this. Soon my team and I will be able to work with you on this again and together, we are going to achieve success.
Keep it going!!
