Everyone knows exercise is healthy and beneficial. What’s not always easy is knowing where to begin. We may not always have the time to go to the gym or money to invest in expensive workout gear. Luckily, there are many types of exercises you can try out from the comfort of your home.
Don’t be intimidated if you are just starting out
Want to start getting active but don’t know how? A great way to incorporate physical activities into your daily routine is by easing into it. Physical trainer and Youtuber, Caroline Jordan, suggests getting your exercise in during a quick work break.
Who says you need gym equipment to get a good workout?
Don’t have any equipment lying around at home? That’s not a problem! There are plenty of exercises you can try that don’t require any equipment. For example, this lower body cardio workout focuses on your core strength and agility. Created by Amy Eisinger, digital director at Self Magazine, these exercises give options to take longer or shorter rests between each rep. Check out the full tutorial, with visual guides, here.
You can get your exercise in right at your desk
