“Stop paying for your workouts!”
I tend to be quite picky when it comes to finding the right gym. Too small, too big, too dirty, too loud, too far, too expensive, too many weird looks, too anything, really…
Don’t get me wrong, I do think joining a gym can help staying motivated, but I learned that working out at home is a much better solution. The only thing you need to do is commit to yourself. You get to do your workouts whenever you want, wear whatever clothes you feel like and listen to the music you choose. Plus, it’s free. The internet is full of resources to help you get started and before I share some of my favourites with you, here are a few useful tips:
Here are a few website I’ve tried and liked, but be aware that the internet is full of ideas waiting for you to discover.
Fitness Blender- probably my favourite one because of the wide variety of workouts (in terms of intensity, style, duration), the easy searching menu and the option for a personal, customizable calendar
PopSugar - another really comprehensive website that goes well beyond fitness, with slightly easier and shorter workouts
BeFit- a YouTube channel where you can find workouts from renowned trainers like Jillian Michaels or Denise Austin
Tone it Up - although some of the plans are payable, there are still a bunch of free workouts, recipes and lifestyle advice
I hope these websites are enough to get you moving and in case you know of any others, please share them with me.
Always remember to stretch, replace the water you’ve lost and get a healthy, filling meal soon after your workout. Then do it again tomorrow!
