Why I Workout From Home| 5 Reasons Home Workouts ROCK!

You Can Workout From Home

I totally get that putting on workout gear and heading to the gym is not everyone’s idea of a good time. But allowing your general dislike of the gym to prevent you from progressing with your fitness and achieving your health and wellness goals isn’t cool.

While going to the gym may not be your “thing” opting instead for an easy and simple home workout could be the perfect alternative for you. Today I am going to give you five reasons why home workouts ROCK!

No One In Your Space

Gyms can easily become crowded. Which can make it difficult to move around and perform your workout moves, or find the exact materials you want. When you workout from home you don’t have to share your equipment with anyone, you can create a designated space or area for workouts.

No Gym Fees

Have you ever gone through a season where you aren’t going to the gym and you were still paying for it? Well working out from home can save you money. Especially if you find yourself going to the gym infrequently.

 

No Excuses

Workout out from home eliminates a lot of excuses. Since you’re not having to travel to the gym you can change into your workout gear and get it done!

Portable Workouts

Since home workouts utilize minimal equipment that is easy to pack up and carry (think mat, resistance bands, ankle weights) you can always take your workout on the road and visit a park and get an awesome workout outside. This also gives you the option to utilize park benches and other apparatus to include various challenges and progressions to your workout that you wouldn’t normally have access to at home.

 

Another great advantage is if you travel a lot you can always work out in your hotel room and stay on track.

 

No Locker Rooms

One of the most awkward things about going to the gym, especially if you’re going before work, is that you have to shower in the locker room. This can feel a tad bit invasive. When you workout from home you can enjoy a nice post-workout shower in your own bathroom in the privacy of your own home.

I hope you find these reasons convincing enough for you to be willing to give home workouts a try. Especially if you have been putting off working out due to your dislike of the gym.

Simple Easy Ideas for Movement That Don’t Require the Gym

Staying Active When Life Gets Busy

Maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle is a major and important part of preventative health and wellness. There will be times when life becomes super busy and it’s not always easy to head to the gym for a workout or commit to scheduling a dedicated workout session. Since this is the end of summer break and it’s time to get the kids ready to go back to school and get back into the grind of things you may find yourself in a super busy season and you just don’t feel like you have the time to devote to your fitness regimen.

 

Today I want to give you some simple ideas for activities you can do that don’t require a lot of time but promote movement in a healthy way so you can stay on track while you go through this busy season.

If your busy schedule isn’t allowing you to make it to the gym and you don’t want to abandon your workouts completely, transitioning to at home workouts might be a good option for you. Committing to 15-20 minute sessions a couple times of the week in the morning or in the afternoon whichever time works best with your schedule. These mini-sessions require little to no equipment. Some types of equipment you might want to purchase are resistance bands, dumbbells, ankle weights, blocks, a stability ball and a mat. Much of the equipment is pretty lightweight and portable so if you are traveling a lot you may find these quick workout sessions convenient. Types of workouts that you can adjust to fit within 15-20 minutes are circuit style workouts, HIIT workouts, pilates, and yoga.

Perhaps spicing up your daily commute and biking to work could work to help you increase your activity levels and remain active. You could have specific days that you bike to work or you can bike and use public transportation. This can also improve your mood and decrease your stress having you happy and ready to face a day at work.

This is pretty self-explanatory, but opting to take the stairs in place of the elevator or parking your car farther out so you have to walk to the entrance. Both of these are good strategies for increasing your daily movement.

Cleaning your home, washing your car, gardening, mowing the lawn. All of these activities require you to do some type of manual labor that requires you to move and are quite physically demanding in some cases. So making sure you’re setting aside time to truly clean your home and do your chores.

 

The above options are just a few ideas designed to help inspire you to get moving and active. While busy schedules do happen and are quite common and sometimes fitness may have to take a backseat due to a demanding lifestyle. Finding creative ways to include fitness into your everyday life and stop thinking it’s just about going to the gym. Expand your mind and explore other options for working out until you’re back to a regular schedule.

Struggling to Get on Track?

Perhaps you find yourself struggling to get back on track after overcoming a busy season and needing to improve your fitness and health. If that’s the case I can help you by creating an easy and customized fitness routine that will work with your lifestyle while also help you achieve your health and fitness goals. I invite you to experience a FREE Discovery Session today. Learn more about my one on one wellness coaching packages and how I can help you achieve your health and wellness goals.
