During the time spent at home, exercise has not been easy. Gyms are closed, and home exercise equipment can be expensive. Public areas aren’t very accessible for exercise either.
With today’s technology, there is a lot we expect from exercise classes online and on television. There are apps and free videos out there to help you exercise at home while the gyms are closed. So here are reasons to find the best workout for your needs.
Home Exercise Through Online Apps
Some classes are available for free online like yoga, pilates, and other programs. There are some apps available on your phone and tablet to provide options. These apps explain the exercises by showing you so you can get a little practice while you are watching the news and your favorite shows.
Other simple activities can add some physical activity to your daily life at home. The days during this quarantine continue to be inside for many of us, but there is no reason to ignore your doctors’ recommendation of 30 minutes of daily exercise.
Complete Your Own In-Home Exercise
You can run in place or you can also do sit-ups, push-ups, squats, and jumping jacks. Other basic aerobics and simple resistance exercises using your own body weight can help improve your fitness during these boring days.
Other affordable options include small hand weights or resistance bands. This can help with slimming and trimming of all areas of the body. You can also use your own bodyweight to help create the perfect workout for your fitness goals.
It is up to you to work out at home. With all this time inside, it is easy to lock yourself down on the couch playing on the computer and phone or watching TV. With a little work, the house can be your own fitness gym and keep you in shape. You may be in better shape than ever after all is said and done!
