Work up a sweat right in the comfort of your own apartment! All you need is a clear floor and a computer or TV. Strength, flexibility, and cardio workouts are available online with no equipment required. Continue reading for three easy exercises that turn your luxury apartment into your personal 24-hour fitness center.
Both yoga and pilates are perfect living room workouts that build strength and flexibility while burning calories at the same time. Yoga doesn’t require much space. All you need is a mat (or a soft rug) to provide a bit of cushioning. Whether you’re an expert or a beginner, there are plenty of free yoga videos on YouTube to get you into the flow.
High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) involves short bursts of intense exercise followed by short rest periods. For an equipment-free workout, try bodyweight interval training. All you’ll need is enough space to move freely. Here is a beginner workout from Shape and a more advanced workout from Verywell Fit to get you started. Start by focusing on doing each move as perfectly as possible without worrying about how many reps you can do. As you get the form down, you can get faster and more intense in every session.
Just Get Moving
If you’re not sure where to start, just get up and move around your apartment. Studies have shown walking gives you a creativity boost, which can help with productivity. Sitting for long periods of time is bad for your health, so take a break and walk around your apartment to get your blood flowing and burn a few calories. Make TV time a bit less sedentary by standing up and moving during commercials or between episodes. You can even stand or pace during the shows. You won’t even realize you’re burning calories. While it’s not an Olympic-level workout, turning sedentary time into active time will make a difference in your long-term health and fitness.Back to all posts
