It can be a bit tricky to exercise indoors. You may have to deal with issues with space and distractions. I have dealt with all of these and I know how hard it can be to get motivated enough to exercise every day but once there’s a will, there is a way. You will need a lot of persistence and determination to exercise indoors. The trick is to keep at it on a daily basis until it becomes second nature. I exercise in the mornings for about 30 minutes. My weekly target is to exercise for about 150 minutes a week and that includes walking, running, cycling, gardening, doing chores, and the likes. 150 minutes sounds like a lot but it is doable when you exercise for around 30 minutes on a daily basis.
I create my own workout session
When it comes to indoor exercise, I like to just go with the flow and do my own thing. Half the time, I find guided fitness videos do not really inspire me, so I have had to create my own workout moves that keep me inspired and get me to exercise every day. I usually start with stretches, yoga, dancing, and different moves.
The benefits of exercising indoors
Here are some of the amazing benefits of exercising indoors –
You don’t have to deal with the gyms
I have never been into gyms. There are always overcrowded and with the current state of things, I cannot imagine working out in a gym now. So being able to work out from the comfort of my home is a blessing. Plus you don’t have to pay for the pricey gym membership.
You can get the best of both worlds – indoor and outdoor
Exercising at home doesn’t mean you have to be indoors. If you take the workout outside and get the best of both worlds. This is a great idea, especially in the summer months.
You have a dedicated space for workout
You don’t have to worry about sharing your workout space with complete strangers, and spending minutes wiping every equipment.
You can go at your pace
When you work out on your own, indoors and outdoors, you don’t have to keep up with anyone else. You can work out at your pace.
At the end of the day, it makes sense to do what is best for you. We are different and so are our needs. There is no one rule that fits everyone’s fitness needs. You have to play around with different ways of getting your workout done to find the best way for you.
