Working out at home


If you find the idea of exercise with others in a gym or health club a daunting prospect, then the answer to getting a little bit fitter is simple. Exercise at home.

Exercising at home is a cost-effective way of getting fit as there is no need to fork out for expensive gym memberships.

Keeping fit
Aerobic exercise is the best way to keep fit and control weight. At home the types of exercise you could do are:

  • Stair climbing
  • Dancing
  • Keep fit videos
  • Using aerobic home equipment
  • Gardening
Toning up
Aerobic exercise is great to increase fitness, but it does little to improve muscle tone and body shape.

The Interactive Trainer section of this site outlines many great exercises that just use your body weight or ones which can be performed using objects like tins of food etc as added resistance. Take a look. You may be pleasantly surprised.
