Choosing to exercise at home is a good idea. It is always there when you are in the mood to work out, and it saves you the entrance and joining fees at a gym. Here are some of the best ways to exercise in the comfort of your own home.


Swimming

If you are lucky enough to own a swimming pool remember that it doesn’t have to be only for the kids. Doing laps before bedtime can be an excellent way to exercise and wear yourself out before sleep. It is the easiest way to burn up the meal you had for dinner as well.

If you want to use your pool more and need it to be a more welcoming temperature, you can adapt it to be solar heated to extend the number of months the pool will be used by the whole family and give you more hours in the day when it is nice to swim in.


Stationary Spin Bikes

If braving the elements is not something you want to do when you want to exercise, then using a spin bike is a smart and easy solution. It has been scientifically proven that spin cycling is one of the highest calorie burning activities you can do. The best thing about having this equipment in your home is you can use it no matter what the time is.

Joining a gym is not an option for many people who still want to keep fit. If you work night shifts or prefer to exercise late at night, joining a 24-hour gym can be an expensive thing to do. They charge more because there is extra staff to be paid and after-hours salaries to supplement.

One nice spin bike to buy is a model that comes supplied with live streaming spin class capabilities. It is this kind of technology that makes paying monthly gym fees and sticking to their opening hours completely unnecessary. 



Housework and DIY

This might seem like a strange exercise option, but research has shown that doing chores around the house and gardening are excellent ways to burn up calories and strengthen muscles. Even DIY such as carpentry and painting use energy and give you a good workout. That's why you feel so tired after working on a project.

If you decide to make housework and gardening your new form of exercise, there is a right way and wrong way to do it. Firstly, keep hydrated with water just as you would if you were in a gym. The leading cause of overeating is when the body misinterprets thirst as hunger. It’s counterproductive to spend the day cleaning and tidying if you binge on junk food when you think you have hunger pangs.

Next, be sure to concentrate on maintaining a strong core when you are doing your tasks. A good posture means your core is getting a work out even if it doesn’t feel like it. When you have your shoulders back, your spine straight, and your hips in line with your shoulders, you will be working your core muscles.
