There’s no getting around it: we’re getting lazier. With the advent of lifestyles that offer us everything at our very fingertips, combined with our rigorous and often demanding schedules, sometimes the last thing we want to do with our spare time is schlep our bodies over to a gym class, a palates session or a date with even the hottest male trainer. We know we need to exercise, but just the idea of getting to our respective exercise destinations makes us somehow lose our steam. Well, the reality is that we no longer have such excuses, because a little resourcefulness and creativity when it comes to fitness can actually go a very long way.
The fitness rulebooks don’t say we have to spend loads of money or time on our pursuit to be in the best shape possible. What they do tell us is to eat right, move our bodies, increase our heart rate, practice strength training and most of all—they tell us to be consistent, which means that one way or another, we should find a way to exercise every day. So whether you are jam-packed with appointments and have no time for the gym or simply don’t feel like leaving the house, here are 10 stay-at-home workouts that you can incorporate into your life—so that excuses are never an option.
