WORKOUT AT HOME

WORKOUT AT HOME

Working out at home is a great way to form realistic, healthy habits and incorporate them into your weekly routine. Our day to day lives are extremely busy and trying to juggle everything can take its toll on our minds and bodies. The joy of working out at home is that you don't need to go anywhere or spend lots on money on a gym membership to enhance your health and improve your fitness.

Benefits of working out at home:

- You don't have to work around anyone else or the gym's opening hours

- You have more time as you don't have to waste time travelling around

- You feel comfortable and safe in your own home

- You don't need to worry about what to wear

- You don't have the stress of finding someone to watch the children or going back out once home from work

- You can do whatever workout you enjoy the most

Set goals:

It may be difficult at first to figure out what your home workout should consist of, so before you start, consider your fitness goals, what do you want to achieve? A higher level of fitness, weight loss or to tone up.

Once you know what you want to achieve from your exercise, you can plan your workout routine and included the exercises needed to reach those goals.

Commit yourself:

Experts say it can take up to 30 days to establish a routine, so creating a realistic weekly routine that can be followed is vital. Buy or create yourself a visual weekly calendar and block out time on the calendar that you feel is time you can honestly keep free for exercise, this could be first thing in the morning, after work or once the kids have gone to bed. Think carefully about how many hours of exercise you want to accomplish each week depending on your goals and have a mixture of exercises including cardiovascular, toning, stretching and relaxation.
