How to get fit at home

You don’t have to join an expensive gym to get fit and healthy.

There are many ways to get fit at home - and you don’t need to invest in fancy equipment.

Here are some ideas about how to get started:

Jump start your day

Get your heart pumping with a 10-minute cardio workout at home to burn calories and make you feel fabulous. 

After a warm-up to stretch the muscles, do rocket jumps with your hands in the air, then repetitions of star jumps, squats and “burpees”. (A quick online search can help you to find out more about individual exercises.)

For burpees, drop into a squat with your hands on the ground, kicking the feet back as if ready to do a push-up, then jump back into a squat and back upright with your hands in the air. 

Strike the right tone 

Get fit without gym equipment by devising your own home toning plan.

Try push-ups (or more manageable knee push-ups), lunges and stomach crunches.

Simple, inexpensive dumbbell weights can help with exercise like biceps curls but you could also just use bottles of water or tins of beans!

Get to the bottom of things

These buttock-enhancing exercises are just the thing to firm up your bottom.

Lie on your side with the lower leg bent, then raise the other leg straight as far as you can without tilting. Repeat 10 times on each side.

Squats and lunges can also work wonders.

Crunch time 

For that washboard stomach, work on your abs at home with crunches and planks that get right down to those core muscles.

Mix it up with side planks or stomach crunches with your legs raised.

Walk it off

Try to ditch the car or bus as often as possible and build a brisk walk into your daily routine.

Make it happen

It doesn't take a lot of effort or money to design an effective plan to get fit at home.

Fit people adopt successful habits.

So no more excuses. Use this blog post as a starting point to staying fit without a gym! 

How to get fit by eating right

As well as staying physically active, it's important to maintain a healthy and balanced diet for your body to function well, generate energy and fight off diseases.

Introducing superfoods to your diet is a great way to give yourself a boost.

One of the best superfoods to start with is Spirulina - edible blue-green algae that contains up to 70% protein as well as all eight essential amino acids. It also has powerful anti-oxidants and could help you to deal with allergy symptoms, high blood pressure, digestive health and skin problems.
