Working out from home can be a challenge—having the right equipment
takes time and money to collect. There are always distractions like the
TV, or the dishes that can keep you glued to the couch instead of up and
moving. Also, finding activity that you enjoy can be tough!
As a personal trainer, I feel it’s really important to find some
type of activity that you like—pick something that motivates you
and also prompts you to be the master of your own body. That means being
capable of doing the things you want to do, (like sports) but also things you
need to do (like housework).
There are incredible free resources that you can use with MILLIONS of online
videos to watch and do from home that can be a gateway to increased activity.
I have selected several resources for you to try, and I’ve eliminated
some of the searching for legitimate resources for you, too. Below you
will find a workout that sounds tough (boot camp sounds so intimidating,
but is always modifiable) and you will also find several workout series
from various companies that produce safe, reputable videos that anyone
can do from home!
If you are ready to start activity, be sure you first visit with your doctor
to ensure you are healthy enough to work out on your own. If you’d
like some guidance creating a workout for yourself, see your health coach.
We can do something as simple as help you search YouTube for appropriate
exercises for you, or point you in the direction of other resources to
help you include more activity in your life!
