Due to the strange situation in the world, the popularity of home fitness is at its peak. And of course, possibilities and opportunities are endless to workout at home; However, training at home requires initiative and discipline. My clients and I have been sweating regularly in the home gym a long time before the coronavirus existed, and therefore we also know that home training can seem confusing at first. Still, when the right routines are found, home training can become a permanent lifestyle! Check my three tips on how to get started quickly, stay motivated, and enjoy home fitness!
1. Make a plan
You've probably heard that having a plan is already half done. I could not agree more. Plan ahead the days you are going to work out and make a note to your calendar.
The problem with home workouts is often the difficulty of getting started. Exercising "according to the mood of the day" might postpone workouts often to the next day because of too many distractions at home. But when having a clear plan will help you stay on schedule.
Now, no one's calendar should be too full of extra appointments, so prioritize your workouts. Now is the perfect time to invest in your well-being.
2. Create a motivational space in your home gym
Create a space for yourself that motivates you to exercise. If you don't have an extra room, a small corner will do it—decorate your home gym with equipment, an exercise mat, and maybe a mirror. Be creative. The main thing is that you feel motivated and inspired.
Often if the gym ball is empty and dusty under the bed, it stays there too. Out of sight, out of mind. So make meaningful space for yourself where you want to come and visit to exercise.
3. A workout program that suits you
It is essential to find suitable workouts for yourself. The joy and motivation of beginners can end up quickly with too challenging and difficult workout programs. It is also vital to do the exercises with the right technique - the goal is to increase the well-being of the body and avoid the injuries.
If you have a long break from training, the first exercises can often feel rough but don't give up. After a few weeks, you will notice a small development that will motivate you to continue. Also, remember that exercise should increase your well-being, so it is important that you enjoy doing it and keep your attitude positive!
I can recommend from the bottom of my heart if you are a beginner, or need some motivation or inspiration, do not hesitate to contact a professional. Exercising with a professional is not only a progressional but also a fun team workout together.
