Not everyone can get to the gym, maybe you are time poor or live somewhere without local gyms or simply dont enjoy gym culture. But this doesn't mean you have to forgo exercise. You can still workout at home.
For holistic health and wellness, it's vital that we get regular exercise. Let's take a look at four workouts we think are worth trying at home . They'll keep the blood flowing and your heart pumping, with a renewed vigor for life.
- If You’re Looking for a Way to De-Stress
Decreasing long-term stress should be on everyone's to-do list.
If you want something to do at home right now to reduce your stress, try meditation. While not all meditation requires you to move around a lot and burn a lot of calories, it can help you find your inner joy and peace. Reconnecting with that joyous inner self is one of the keys to fufillment.
- If You Want Something High Intensity
Perhaps you're used to working out at the gym in a big way. You get in there, and you don't stop until you drop. If you're someone who likes high-intensity workouts that get your blood flowing, then you might want to check out what's going on online with HIIT workouts.
HIIT is short for high-intensity interval training, and it is a form of exercise that involves high-intensity periods of exercise that can be both cardio and aerobic, followed by short recovery periods. Its great for the time poor who don't have a lot of time to work out, this is a great way to get it done in a small amount of time.
- If You Want to Drag it Out
If you have more time on your hands than usual and you’re keen to try something different, why not have a go at Pilates? Pilates is a low-impact workout that is designed to strengthen your muscles, while at the same time improving things like flexibility and posture.
It’s kind of like yoga, just with a little more movement to it. Pilates is also known as being a killer core workout, so if you’re trying to work out specific areas of the body, like your stomach, this could be your at-home answer to getting that summer bod ready for the beach again.
- If You Miss Your Bike
Are you someone who used to get on their road bike at five in the morning and burn more calories before 9 a.m. than the rest of us combined?
You can either get an exercycle or a machine that straps that beloved road bike in for an indoor ride. There are plenty of online spin classes that you can follow while you kill time right in your living room. This is a great way to bridge the gap between what you used to do to exercise and what you can do now.
