Don’t feel like leaving the house? Check out these easy fitness tips you can try at home – some even help with housework!
DIY gym time
You don’t need to go to the gym to get fit, you can bring the gym home to you. Do squats, push ups, sit ups in your living room and pick up some weights or dumbbells to work your arms. Run laps around the backyard or up and down the drive way to get in some cardio.
Mow the lawns
Let’s be honest, doing the lawns is an annoying chore, but mowing the lawns in the Kiwi heat is a great way to work out and get a little sweaty. Pulling this bad boy around will work out your legs, arms and booty.
Hit the floor
You may be surprised to know that mopping, scrubbing or vacuuming the floors is a great way to work out your arms. Bonus, it also is a carefree way to get the house clean.
Join the yoga tribe
You can quite literally do yoga anywhere these days, but a post-wake up yoga session in your lounge is a great way to stretch out before a busy day and keep on top of your fitness.
Head to YouTube
YouTube is full of fun videos that you can use to take free classes in your home. No equipment? Try searching for Zumba, dance or aerobic classes. If you have an exercycle, have a look for some high intensity spin classes. Fitness is literally at your fingertips.
Tip: Stay motivated by setting out some time each night or morning to exercise. 30 minutes before you make dinner does the trick.
