If you feel like you can’t face a workout outside, or you don’t fancy the walk/drive to the gym, then you could consider working out at home instead. Many people do home workouts all year round simply because they enjoy getting their exercise hit in the comfort of their own home.
Not only does working out at home save you time because you don’t have to drive to the gym or spend time getting layered up to go out, but it can also help you save on gym membership costs.
The best way to get moving if you’re struggling to get motivated is to commit to 10 minutes of physical activity a day. Like anything in life, if starting a task feels like a great effort, then it can help to break it down into small, manageable chunks – and exercise is no different.
The NHS offer a series of 10-minute equipment-free routines that you can do at home, which can be a great starting point for people of all fitness levels.
If these routines become easy or you fancy more of a challenge, then it’s worth looking at some longer or more complex routines online. The NHS also offer exercise videos for beginners on belly dancing techniques, aerobics, and running 5K distances alongside plenty more – so it’s worth exploring your options until you find something that suits you!
We also have an article on 5 steps to staying fit from home, to give you some inspiration if you’re stuck. It has plenty of fun and free ways to get your heart pumping from the comfort of your own home, including incorporating exercise into your chores, or trying things like skipping or hula hooping.
