What Do I Need To Start?

Before you begin your home fitness routine for beginners or any fitness level after all, there are a few starting points to consider.

  • How much space do you have? Can you workout on your patio or balcony or can you take some time in a spare room or bedroom to complete your workouts?
  • How much time do you have? Do you have 30 mins a day or 10 mins a day realistically?
  • Is exercising at home in the morning or evening better for you?
  • Is there anything you need for your workouts in terms of equipment?
  • Have you set yourself and goal and made a promise to yourself to stick to it?

Right, if you’ve ironed out all the details above, then you’re ready to get cracking on creating a simple home fitness routine that is going to give you great results and make sure you’re laughing out aloud at the same time.

How To Make Home Fitness Fun

No matter whether you choose yoga, HIIT workouts, weight lifting, or running on a treadmill as your chosen activity at home, here’s how to make your home fitness routine fun and achieve the goals you want to.

#1 – Phone A Friend

Invite a friend or family member to join you for one or two sessions a week at home, to make your activity fun and feel more sociable. They could come to your house one day and you could go to their the next. If you guys can be together, consider doing your workout together over Facetime or Zoom as an alternative too.

#2 - Create a Fitness Workout Music Playlist

Never underestimate the power of music to keep you motivated. Music has a way of revving you up so that you’re more amped to complete your activity and it can help to pass the time quickly too.

#3 - Find a Beautiful Outdoor Space to Work Out in

If the weather and your space allow for it, take your workout outside. The fresh air will give you renewed energy and will help to enhance your mood.

#4 - Be Creative and Try Various Types of Exercises

We encourage you to do the types of exercises that you love, but don’t be afraid to try something new too. If you generally prefer to do HIIT or weight workouts, why not try a session of yoga once a week to change things up? If you’re a runner at heart, try taking your treadmill sessions at home, out on the road every now and then for a change of pace and scenery.

#5 - Reward Yourself for Every Milestone

Never forget the rewards. Whether you celebrate every kilogram you lose, or when you lift an extra kilogram of weight, be sure to celebrate every milestone both big and small.
