Now is a great time to start exercising at home. With home workouts there are no gym membership dues, no wasted travel time, no crowded gym floors nor peer pressure to perform. The key to a good home workout is to be creative. Even if you don’t have standard exercise equipment there are many other options. Your body weight, cans of food, bags of food, water bottles, stones, bricks, logs; anything that can be held and has weight can be used. Stairs, chairs, beds, tables, and benches can also be incorporated. You don’t need a lot of space, just enough to move around a bit (about 3 feet).
Once you start to move a little each day, you will feel better and you will be motivated to keep going. The key is to get started and even if it is only five minutes a day, that will get you on the road to good health!
