What are your fitness goals?
Are you trying to lose weight, get in shape or train for a marathon?
Chances are more likely that you’re interested in weight loss, because who isn’t!
Working out with a personal trainer at a private gym isn’t the only way you can reach your health goals.
Losing weight and getting in shape often go hand in hand.
For many of us trying to lose weight, finding the time and or financial resources for professional personal trainers may not be an option.
Regardless of the level of assistance you get or your fitness goals, these are some easy workouts anyone can do!
With the holidays around the corner, now is a great time to add a couple easy workouts to your routine.
Starting a routine can be difficult, and often we take two steps forward and one step back in our attempts to workout out regularly.
However, by incorporating some of these straightforward workouts you can help ensure you stay active, no matter what holiday may be approaching.
Here are some of the benefits of working out, in case you didn’t know!
- Regular exercise helps decrease stress and anxiety, improves your focus and helps release feel-good endorphins.
- A fitness routine is a key part of fighting weight gain, obesity, and cardiovascular issues.
- Exercise works to build resilience, help with perseverance and dedication, and is a great boost to your self-confidence and self-esteem.
- Daily movement and avoiding sedentary behavior has been shown to help with degenerative health problems such as osteoporosis and arthritis.
Now that you are ready to re-commit to your summer fitness routine, let’s make it simple by adopting these easy workout options:
Loved by many for the minimal amount of equipment required, running is a great workout option to take up if you are traveling a lot or spending a lot of time away from home on vacation.
Pack some running shoes in your bags and shorts and a t-shirt, and you can keep up with your fitness routine just about anywhere you go.
If you are new to running, ease in gradually to avoid injury, and if you don’t like the thought of running by yourself, look into running groups in your community or in your travel destinations.
Many of these are advertised on the sites of boutique fitness studios or running stores, and they are typically an informal chance for runners to get together and motivate each other.
For those that live in colder climates, outdoor running may be a bit more challenging this time of year. Remember that many community centers have running tracks!
Don’t be intimidated if you can’t a downward dog, or can’t even touch your toes!
Yoga exercises come in many formats, and there are lots of ways to find an easy yoga workout that you can do in your home.
Stretching, deep breathing and mindfulness are just some of the exercises that you can incorporate into your routines, all without ever leaving the house!
One KettleBell Workout
As the name implies, you will need one kettlebell, but the good news, that’s all you need! With a single kettlebell, it’s possible to get a total body workout.
From curls to overhead lifts, a single kettlebell can provide all the weight and resistance you would need for your arms.
Squats with a kettlebell can help work out your arms and legs together.
Variations of standing squats can help you target specific muscles in your workouts. While simple, a single kettlebell be all the equipment you need!
These are just some of the many easy exercises you can do without expensive equipment or professional help. While it’s important to work out on your own, working out with a personal trainer at a private gym can help give you the professional advice you need to really jump start your workout efforts.
