3 NO Gym Workout Ideas for Gym Haters

1. Turn Your Home into a Gym

  • Shape your legs by running your stairs or performing single leg squats onto a chair
  • Define and strengthen your upper body by doing pushups with your hands on a table
  • Elevate your heart rate with burpees and high knees in place (find an open space for this exercise)

Note: If your goal is weight loss, then limit your rest time and move quickly from exercise to exercise

2. Boost Metabolism In The Morning with a 5 Minute Circuit

  • Make it a habit of waking up to a glass of water
  • Follow with a 5 minute circuit
  • Start the clock and perform 15 jumping jacks, 10 bodyweight squats, 5 pushups and 5 supermans
  • Repeat the circuit as many times as possible until the 5 minutes has expired

3. Exercise Adds Up All Day

  • Don’t have time to complete a workout? Combining your exercise throughout the day is just as effective as one continuous workout (intensities being the same).
  • A couple times a day, take a 10 minute break from work and walk around the building.
  • Add in healthy habits to your daily life. Take the stairs, walk to the coffee shop instead of driving, park further away from a store…you get it! Add up this calorie burn throughout the day and you can get a 30 minute workout.
