Tips for home exercisers

New year, new you. But what if there’s really no time to hit the gym. Here are some aerobic exercises that are easy to do at home. There goes your last excuse!

Dance like no one is watching you

This is something that you can rope the kids into too – dancing! It’s an incredible home workout that can encompass everything from jumping, star jumping, squats and a twerk or two. Put on your favourite playlist, set a timer and get booging like there is no tomorrow for a minimum of 30 minutes.

No need for fancy equipment

There’s nothing better than your body weight to get the heart pumping. All you need is space in your lounge or backyard, your body and the willingness to try. Get started with squats, step-up’s and lunges to warm up and progress to things like the ‘plank’, mountain climbers and shoulder taps to work your upper body. The internet is your friend, so find a workout that matches your level of fitness and begin!

Keeping your mind fit

Taking heed of your mental wellness is as important as your physical health – so you might opt for activities that help with mindfulness too. Practising yoga is a tried and tested method of self-centring and calming your mind amongst anxiety and panic. All you need is a mat and a comfortable outfit. There are countless yoga instruction videos on the internet and doing anything from 15 minutes to an hour a day will bring a sense of peace to the mind.

The humble skipping rope

One of the most affordable items to keep fit, and definitely the most underrated, is the humble skipping rope. Be prepared to feel like an uncoordinated five-legged toddler, to begin with, but once you’ve mastered the technique, you’ll be amazed at how fast your fitness increases. And remember, it’s all in the wrists!
