NO GYM, NO PROBLEMS
The gym is one of the main places we associate with getting fit. However, while going to the gym is great, it is also possible to achieve our fitness goals outside of a gym environment and in the comfort of your own home.
Not being at the gym may seem hard to visualise but knowing where start will be the first piece of your fitness puzzle. All you need is consistency and creating the habit of working out is not only good for the body but also the mind. So whether you can't go to the gym because of the current pandemic or for any other reason, don't worry we will help break down what you need to do to get started.
So where to start?
Firstly, defining your goal is extremely important and will create some clarity.
Get fit? Lose weight? Stay healthy? At least one of these areas has crossed your mind or even all 3, therefore the next step to take is to visualise where you see yourself in 3,6,9 and 12 months from now. The more specific the better, but if you're unsure and just want to get started then pick one of the above that resonates with you the most.
Is equipment essential to have a good home workout?
Ultimately, the answer is no and now the next challenge is knowing how to structure the workout to suit your needs and goals.
For the majority of gym based exercises, there are equivalent home based exercises that will be a more than an adequate replacement to help you achieve a good home workout.
