Do you struggle with sticking to a workout plan and making it to the gym? Have you lost motivation for your New Years Resolution to make it to the gym every morning? Try these 3 ways to get your workout in every day, without the gym! The possibilities are endless!
1. Take your dog for an early morning or evening jog/walk! Not only is this beneficial for losing weight, but this fast-paced physical activity will do exactly what a treadmill at the gym will do, tone and strengthen your muscles. Plus side, you’re getting fresh air and your dog is enjoying the physical activity as well!
2. Help a friend move! This may not be an everyday activity but it certainly is a rewarding one if you are looking to get some exercise! Plus, your friend will be extremely grateful. Perhaps, you could look on local sites to see if any individuals in your area are needing assistance with moving as well!
3. Volunteer at a childcare facility, zoo, or beach cleanup! Nothing will get you up and moving more than volunteering for an hour or two at an after school program, daycare, or church camp! Children love to explore the outdoors and the opportunity is right there! Oftentimes, the zoo and local organizations seek volunteers for assistance with cleanup and maintaining the surroundings! These are just a few examples of volunteer opportunities you can pursue!
Becoming active in your community is a great place to start! At-home workout videos and yoga are other ways to move your body, no gym needed! Eating healthy, getting enough sleep, and staying hydrated are important to remember while getting your exercise. Without proper hydration, you risk dehydration and ensure your organs don’t go into overdrive.
Just because you don’t have access to a gym, that doesn’t mean you can’t get your physical activity in for the day! With a little motivation and determination to find the right activity for you, you’re on your way to a fitter, healthier lifestyle without the gym!
