One of the top benefits of living in a luxury apartment community like Harborside Village is that you do have access to a state-of-the-art fitness center for your daily exercise routine. But even with that knowledge in mind, sometimes you wish you could stay fit by staying put! Maybe you’re keeping tabs on something in the oven, maybe you’re expecting a phone call, or maybe you simply do not feel like leaving your living room- no matter what the reason, there are plenty of exercises you can do without stepping a foot outside your apartment door. Read on to find out what they are!
If you are looking to get your heart rate up, then cardio exercises are for you. But how to do your daily cardio without a treadmill or elliptical machine? With a combination of stationary exercises! Try this simple routine: jog in place for two minutes, do jumping jacks for one minute, jump rope for two minutes, and repeat the cycle. You’ll burn more calories by switching up the motions you do, and with the constantly changing pattern, the recommended 30 minutes of daily cardio will go by in a snap! A bonus of doing this routine in your apartment? You can catch up on all your favorite TV shows at the same time!
If you are looking to build muscle, then strength training exercises are for you. For an apartment workout, you will obviously not have the weight machines and equipment found in the fitness center, but you will have one thing, guaranteed: your body! Using your body for strength training is a simple enough fitness strategy: try push-ups, sit-ups, crunches, and tricep dips to work those muscles.
If you are looking to increase your flexibility, then yoga is for you. Set up a yoga mat in your living room and go through a routine, using online tutorials or DVDs to help if you are a beginner. You’ll be able to stretch tight muscles and improve your balance, all within the comfort of your own apartment!
For those days that walking to the fitness center just won’t work with your plans, carry out these simple apartment workouts!
