Spring into Fitness from Home

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!
