Are You Succeeding With Your Exercise and Weight Loss Resolutions?

May 8, 2013 By: consultant 27 Comments

gymEvery year exercise and weight loss are ranked as the top New Year resolutions that people make. Were you one of them? Whether you’re looking to drop a few pounds, tone up those muscles or improve your overall health, creating a gym in your house can give you the comforts of home while not having to worry that you don’t have time to get to the gym.

Here are some low cost items that are handy to have around the house as well as ideas on how to use items you may already have.

Cardio
Pick up a good sturdy and fairly heavy jump rope at your local sports retailer. If you are planning on jumping rope indoors, make sure you have at least a nine foot ceiling, if not, head outside! Jumping rope burns approximately 110 calories in just 10 minutes. Change the speed at which you’re jumping to create interval training and to ramp up your cardio experience.

If you are looking for a lower impact cardio workout, head out doors. It is recommended that people walk 10,000 steps a day to maintain their weight. By clipping a pedometer to your belt will help you know how close you are to the 10,000 steps a day. Take the jump rope with you and try connecting with your inner child and skip down the street; trust me, it’s fun.

Building Strength
While you are out grabbing the jump rope you can pick up a few low cost free weights and they can be easily stored under your bed. For a change from weights, get a kettle bell. In just 20 minutes, you can burn up to 400 calories and get firm all over. There are plenty of online videos to assist you in creating a routine.

If weights just aren’t your thing, a rubber resistance band, which mimics machine moves, can help target back, hip and inner thigh muscles as well as biceps, triceps and shoulders. Most come with a door attachment or handles for you to change up your routine.

Many household items can easily be used for exercise too. Rather than purchasing hand weights, use gallon sized milk jugs filled with water and that can be used for any exercise that requires dumbbells. Adjust the amount of water in the bottles and you can change how heavy the weight is.

One of my all time favorite pieces of equipment is a stability ball. You can get creative and do many different exercises to flatten the belly, work out the back muscles, do pushups and much more. Of course, when all else fails, there are always the basic body-weight exercises, most of which only require a bit of empty space on the floor or wall. Squats, push-ups and jogging in place are all great ways to work up a sweat and burn calories and they don’t cost a penny to do.

Use these simple tips to help keep you on track with your exercising and weight loss resolutions. Have fun with your exercise routine, utilize free weight loss tools and there’s never any reason why you can’t succeed. If you have questions on how to make your home a gym and using things around your house, just ask! Our Fitness Coaches are always willing to help.

  23. “No pains my foot”, those were the exact words from someone who just finished having a laser hair removal done.
    This process provides women and men with a low maintenance alternative to shaving and other methods
    of hair removal. Moreover, skin darkening because of sun exposure
    reduces the effectiveness of your follow-up treatment.

  24. Hey there! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I had to ask.
    Does running a well-established website such as yours require
    a large amount of work? I’m completely new to operating a blog but I
    do write in my journal daily. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience and views online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for
    brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

  25. With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or
    copyright infringement? My website has a lot of exclusive
    content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot
    of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.

    Do you know any solutions to help reduce content from being ripped off?

    I’d truly appreciate it.
