You want to get fit, but knowing how much you and other women have on their plates (no pun intended), you doubt that it's possible. Balancing your diet, “me time” and time for your chores is hard, but I'm here to tell you- it is possible. Yes, you can feel and become fit without leaving your home, while binging on your favourite TV show, losing no time on transport and still being able to spend some quality time with your loved ones.
Working out at home. It may be as good as going to the gym, only A LOT cheaper and more time-efficient.
Here's why and how you should do it.
Working out seems pointless to some, but those who have experienced it know it's importance:
When working out, your body burns more calories than usual. The harder you work; the more calories are burnt. It's nothing new that calorie deficit results in weight loss, so working out at home is an easy way to ditch that fat and show your natural curves.
Feeling down? Under the weather? Or just feeling like you've too much to handle with? Your body has a solution, but you will need to help it first in order for it to help you.It's not that hard. Firstly, get on your feet, and then do anything except standing still. Take a short walk, or maybe jog in place? Perform a workout, perhaps? Just get our body moving, and it will make you feel better by producing many chemicals that help in fighting away anxiety and bad mood. It's kind of a natural drug, but without any negative side-effects. Sounds too good to be true? Try it yourself. I guarantee that you'll feel better.
Working out delivers necessary nutrients and oxygen to all your organs and tissues, so it helps your whole body work more efficiently, and makes you feel revitalised.
Now that you know benefits of working out, you may ask yourself:
Fact: sharing the lockers and bathrooms with hundreds of people is not the most hygienic thing in the world. Let’s not get into the details.
In your own home, you’re the boss. You can do whatever you want without anyone giving you the side eye (hopefully). You can work out as long as you want to, do the exercises in whatever way you want to and most importantly- you can truly be in sync and fully focused on yourself.
Today, living on the budget is not easy. It never was, after all. But one thing you can elegantly save some bucks on is working out. The cost reduction is going to make you say WOAH (which stands for working out at home ). A survey conducted in 2016 shows that the most people in the US payed between $21-$50 a month for their gym membership, which is $252-$600 yearly.Just imagine what could be done with that money!
For example, for $600, you could buy your own gym equipment consisting of a treadmill/fitness bike, resistance bands, few weights, and a yoga mat- and you could get all that at a smaller price if you choose to buy the used stuff.
That doesn’t seem like a lot, but think about what equipment do you use in the gym anyway. An average woman does not use anything more than few pieces stated.
Basically, if you worked out at home instead of going to the upper-middle class gym for one year, you could build a home gym just for yourself. That sounds good, doesn’t it?
But bear in mind that you can work out at home without the home gym, with no/minimal equipment.
Firstly, decide the time you will spend on yourself. It may be hard, I understand. But I believe you can do it.
Try to do the other things you have to do a bit faster, or try to work out while watching your favourite TV show. All of us waste a lot of time each day, so it’s a good idea to try and work out instead.
You can work out in many ways. It’s beneficial regardless the workout method you opt for. Here are a few of the many options:
Whether you’re new to working out, or you’re looking for a serious sweat session, whether it’s your whole work-out routine or just cardio, dancing is a way to go. Whatever dance you choose, it’s both demanding and fun, and that combo makes it so popular. You will sure feel a little out of breath and a tingle afterwards, but you won’t regret it.
Try it yourself!
They are a great way for beginners to start working out- they are like your personal trainers. Pick a one you like, and start exercising!
