13 Tips for Home Fitness

13 Tips for Home Fitness

Home exercising and you.

Where, weights and bands to help.

  1. When home exercising choose a room in your house that can easily be used. Wooden floors can be slippy. Mats can also slip on wooden floors, but tend not to on carpets. Roll up rugs.Boot Camp at home.
  2. Anywhere where a mat will fit, will be fine.
  3. Open doors/windows because you can get hot!
  4. Get your water and weights (if using) ready.
  5. Are you going to wear trainers, bare feet or yoga socks? Wear what suits you best. A slippy floor may lend itself to bare feet.
  6. Check your internet will travel outside, if that is your preferred space. Make sure your device is steady. Nobody wants a broken device 🙀 because of wind.
  7. Working outside is lovely, but can be weather dependent. Rain, wind, cold. Some people love it all!
  8. Use a thick mat. Sit ups etc are much more comfortable to do and if working outside on the patio then you have a little cushioning.
  9. Boot Camps using just body weight only are available on-line. Joe Wicks at https://youtu.be/oIfsyYkGMfc. He has free classes.
  10. Phil at: bainesphilip11@gmail.com is a great bet. Phil offers lots of on-line classes, with or without weights.  These offer community, friendship and he watches to make sure your exercises are safe.
  11. Muscle helps your immune system to be stronger*. Add weights into your fitness plan. I am going to buy these: https://www.jtxfitness.com/6kg-dumbbell (when back in stock!)Exercising at home.
  12. Bands are also a great idea for training and will help both with rehab and general strength. Working against a resistance will increase your muscle strength. I don’t have these, but looking at the JTX website, they look strong and wide, which is what you need. https://www.jtxfitness.com/fitness-bands-pack 
  13. Remember there will be great days and not so great days so any work out is better than non. No self-berating and aim to do 2/3 a week, you will feel the difference.
