Utilising what you have at home for your at home workouts
Now you would think that moving your workout regime from the gym to at home workouts would mean having to buy a bunch of fancy equipment, but it doesn’t have to!
If you have the space, money and urge to buy that treadmill or step machine go for it but there are items you already have in your home you can use.
Some of the best at home items you can incorporate into your at home fitness program:
- flour, rice or other large packets of food items in place of weights
- lounges and chairs to replace benches when you want to do chair squats or push ups with some extra lift.
- bath mat or towel in place of a yoga or workout mat to do pretty much any other exercise
- stairs to well do stairs or step workouts at home
Plus you can raid your kids toys and see if they have a skipping rope, balls, or other items you could work into your in home workouts to lose weight.
