5 easy ways to start exercising today

Are you looking for easy ways to start exercising, but you just don’t know how to begin?

Is “I don’t have the time/energy/equipment”  your no-exercise mantra?

We’ve all been there.

Nowadays, the market is overflowing with various fitness, exercise and weight loss programs promising miracles. If you’re a beginner or have taken a hiatus from exercise, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with all your options. It’s no wonder we postpone our workouts to “someday” or “when I’ve lost just a little more weight so I look good in the gym.” The list of excuses is endless.

But don’t lose hope. There are many different ways to start exercising today, right now. Most of them are easy and don’t require any special equipment or even a lot of time. So gear up with willpower and bring your strength to the mat to discover 5 easy ways to start exercising today.

Take Action

Being fit and healthy doesn’t always require spending hours in the gym. But if you want to start, you do have to take action. If you have spare time, find a few full body exercise videos on YouTube. These are usually made by professional fitness trainers and work crucial muscles throughout your entire body. If you’re busy and can’t afford to squeeze in a long workout, try the simplest, yet often underrated physical activity – walking. It’s an effortless way to get moving without breaking a sweat, especially if you’ve been thinking about adding some movement to your daily routine. And you can take this cardio up a notch simply by increasing your pace.

Try Body Weight Strength Training

The name may sound scary, but basically, you use your own body weight to exercise. This type of workout can make you stronger, more flexible and more balanced. Try a combination of the good old planks, push-ups, burpees, squats, and lunges for 15-20 minutes a day.

Try Vinyasa (Flow) Yoga

If you’re looking for a gentle way to start exercising, Vinyasa or Flow yoga will be your friend. It’s an energetic type of yoga with active and work-out like sequences guaranteed to get you physically and mentally ready for the day ahead. Vinyasa also provides you with some light cardio because of the poses “flow” into each other in constant movement.

Do Household Chores

You can easily tun your usual household chores into light cardio workouts if you up the intensity a little. You can burn calories while vacuuming, doing the dishes, gardening, cleaning the bathroom or washing the car. Bonus points if you also play your favorite songs and throw in some dance moves!

Introduce Aerobic Activities to Your Daily Routine

Aerobic activities such as cycling, hiking, jogging or swimming are good for both the body and the mind. If you have a special preference for an aerobic sport, make it a habit to do it 15-20 minutes a day, several times a week. If you need discipline, sign up for aerobics classes in your area. Group classes are also a great way to meet new people and to hold yourself accountable for keeping up your exercise routine.
