How To Start And Keep Fit At Home For Beginners

If you’re looking to build a workout routine without leaving the house, here are some tips and tricks on how to START AND KEEP fit at home for beginners!

Ease Into Your Routine

If you want to keep fit, making exercise a part of your daily routine is key. But if you haven’t worked out in a while, starting out slowly will help you ‌build strength and endurance without causing too much of that unbearable back-at-it exercise-induced soreness. Do you know the one where you waddle around for a few days?

Going too fast, or too hard too quickly also can leave you feeling tired, and discouraged, while burning you out pretty quickly. Building up your stamina can take some time, but ultimately you should feel good after exercising. 

Each of us should aim to get 30-60 minutes of exercise activity each day.

Try working out 2-3 days a week to start and then increasing the amount of time gradually. If you feel good, go for it. But never push yourself if you’re in pain or something doesn’t feel right.

 You can even start with just 10 minutes for each session and work your way up.

Figure Out How You Like To Get Moving To Keep Fit

When it comes down to it, ‌ you’re going to need to find ‌an exercise you enjoy if you want to make it a habit. And you don’t need to pick just one form of exercise. Choosing a few styles can provide a variety of benefits while keeping your routine fresh.

Whatever exercise you do, it will typically include some form of:

  • Aerobic workout: Aim to get at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity, 75 minutes of more intense aerobic activity a week, or a combination. 
  • Strength-building training: Strength training with weights is a great way to tone your body, build muscle and burn calories, but bodyweight exercises can build strength too. You should train all major muscle groups at least two times a week. 3 to 5 days a week is ideal, but the frequency will depend on your personal fitness goals. If you’re just starting out, even 2 days can provide benefits. 
  • Stretching for better flexibility/mobility: Stretching feels good before and after a workout, but it can also increase blood flow for faster recovery, help loosen stiff muscles, increase joint mobility and decrease your risk of injuries.

Always give yourself 1-2 days of recovery each week. On these days, gentle movement is okay and can even be beneficial to help with mobility and keeping up calorie burn if weight loss is a goal.

Make A Workout Schedule And Keep Fit Track

Whether you’re working out at home or in a gym, staying consistent is crucial if you want to see results. By making a workout calendar, you’ll be more likely to stick to a routine if you schedule your workouts like you do your appointments or daily to-do’s. 

Keeping track of what you’re doing will also help you see which days you should train specific muscles and on what days. It can also help you track and measure your goals and fitness accomplishments in the long term. Try using a daily planner, or a productivity app on your phone.

Keep Yourself Accountable

If you haven’t been able to stick to a workout plan at home before, ‌ keep yourself accountable so you keep showing up even on days you don’t feel like it.

Research shows that having someone outside of yourself to report to is one of the most effective ways to help you stay on track and reach your goals. 

Try joining a fitness challenge, get a workout buddy you can text with, or join a fitness group on social media. Don’t forget to reward yourself when you hit goals.
