Creating A Small Home Gym
It is hard to justify gym membership fees when making budget cuts. No one needs to make monthly payments to stay in shape. Exercising can be done almost anywhere -- at home, outside, at a park, or in a community center. Exercise opportunities outside the gym exist no matter what the weather is doing, no matter how light the wallet is feeling, and no matter how few square inches an apartment possesses. Home Gym Equipment No one needs large expensive exercise machines to make a home gym. Small inexpensive home exercise equipment can get anybody into shape. An exercise ball, or stability ball, will get a home gym off to a great start. An exercise ball can improve balance, posture, abdominal muscles, and strengthen the legs. A set of hand weights is not only cheap, it is also small enough to store in the smallest home or apartment. Hand weights can give arm muscles a work out or boost up a cardio training routine. When going on a power walk, be sure to carry a weight in each hand. Weights can also be strapped to the jogger's calves to provide extra strain during a walk or run. A resistance band is another cheap piece of equipment that requires minimal space. It can easily be stored in luggage without adding much weight, making these bands ideal for travelers who want to exercise on the road. Make a small investment on a stationary bike. These home gym exercise machines are the cheapest and smallest indoor cardio workout -- perfect for rainy, snowy, or icy days when an outdoor run is impractical. Most stationary bikes are light enough to be easily moved into a corner or closet when not in use. Cheap Exercise Alternatives Budget too tight for even a set of weights? Cheaper alternatives are available with just a little bit of creativity. Try using heavy cans, or duffle bags filled with books for strength training. Look around the house or apartment: plenty of heavy objects are waiting to be used in a daily exercise routine. Find a sturdy bar for pull ups. Backyard jungle gyms usually have a bar perfect for this use. Walk to the closest children's park to find some monkey bars, or check out a neighborhood school; the P.E. department usually has pull up bars already installed somewhere on the grounds. Stairways can easily replace a climbing machine. Clear indoor stairways or head outdoors. Empty stadiums are perfect for building stamina or building thigh muscles. Home Exercise Made Easy With a proper amount of dedication, expensive gym memberships become entirely unnecessary. Healthy bodies can embrace an easy fitness routine from the comfort of their own homes and communities. Small home gyms could potentially just be an open space. Even using body weight as an exercise tool can be incredibly efficient. Classic exercises such as lunges, squats, or sit ups don't need much more than a clean floor or an exercise mat. So put the wallet away, and start exercising at home today.By Kristin Wood - Kristin Wood is a freelance writer from the Southeast who specializes in content about education, health, business, home management, and spirituality.
