For world-class athletes, being stuck in the house is a strange feeling.
But that's the predicament NBC Sports California's Sharks analyst Kendall Coyne Schofield finds herself in.
Schofield and her husband Michael, an offensive lineman who last played with the Los Angeles Chargers, are holed up at their Orland Park, Illinois home.
In the latest episode of NBC Sports' Distance Training, the Schofields told host Jac Collinsworth that before the state issued a "Stay at home" order, they went to local sporting good stores and bought dumbbells, elastic bands, an exercise bike and anything else they might need in order to workout at home.
"Obviously, our biggest stress was as soon as it started going down and gyms started closing and everywhere we had a chance to work out started closing, we were like 'We need to find a way to workout,' " Michael said. "So I knew a couple days before, our governor of Illinois was going to do a shelter in place or stay in place announcement, we booked dumbbells, we got bands, we ran to Dick's Sporting Goods to get whatever we could and just throw it in our basement.
"But now it's been a hassle. 'OK, we got two dumbbells, a bunch of bands, a stationary bike, let's make the best of it and see what we can do to stay in shape, so it's definitely been hard every single day to come up with workouts and doing stuff, but we're making the most of it."
But working out at their home hasn't been the easiest transition for Kendall and Michael.
"I think what's really challenging, and I'm sure a lot of athletes have the same challenges, when you're in your basement, when you're in your home, you're in an environment that's usually comfortable to you," Kendall said. "That you usually come back to after working out, you're relaxing and you're doing anything but physical activity to be an elite athlete, so I think it's hard being in our home working out and trying to reach that peak performance level mentally and physically, and then at the same time, your phone rings and you say 'I'm just gonna grab that. It's fine,' and just trying to stay on track because there are so many distractions in this environment that you never really utilized as your gym, your lab, your place to be as professional as you can in your sport."
