Many people are interested in staying fit and healthy, but they don’t want to go to the gym. Whether you can’t afford it or don’t like it, there are still ways for you to stay fit without going to the gym.
Find a partner to work out with, with similar goals to make it more fun and keep each other accountable. They can do the same thing as you or different, but be sure they are on board with your fitness journey.
Walking is one of those things which everyone should be doing every day because it’s so easy to get out there when you’re less than five minutes away from a walking distance, then take a brisk 20-minute walk if not at least walking outside counts too.
Swimming is a really good exercise because it builds muscle tone, endurance and flexibility for the back. It also burns calories!
Dancing counts as being mentally active, which can help you stay focused when you’re then tired at work and exercising helps keep your brain healthy by releasing endorphins which are natural mood enhancers.
Studies have proven that those who take up ballroom dancing experience improved balance, proprioception (awareness of body position) and motor skills after only six months!
Yoga is excellent for flexibility, strength and as a way to relax. It also decreases stress levels, so if you’re feeling stressed, then try it out!
Studies show that yoga is actually effective in reducing inflammation and increasing muscle flexibility which has been linked with better blood sugar control. Yoga also provides an excellent opportunity for you to take some time out from your schedule and spend quality time relaxing before or after work.
Boxing or martial arts are really good at increasing your fitness level while building muscle tone because they work on the whole body!
Boxing or martial arts can also help with weight loss by dropping fat that doesn’t need exercise but only diet control. The workout from these exercises will eliminate those pesky love handles that make us all feel less confident about ourselves!
Studies have shown that karate practice can improve cardio health as well as reduce blood pressure due to its focus on stress reduction techniques.
Roller skating is a great workout that can burn up to 500 calories per hour. As you skate, your feet and legs work together to propel you forward while pushing off with the opposite foot. There are several health benefits of roller skating. Roller skates also provide an easy way of getting around when walking or biking isn’t possible, which means they are perfect for days when it is too cold outside for outdoor activities!
Remember to wear a helmet and knee pads when roller skating on the streets. They’re also helpful if you find yourself needing help with your balance during these activities.
Cycling is great for cardiovascular health with its benefits, including decreasing blood pressure while increasing fitness levels, but walking or jogging will do just fine too.
This one may seem like an oddball option here, but walking uphill does count as cardio since when we walk up hills, our heart rate increases significantly more and walking and hiking uphill can result in burning up to 300 calories per hour.
