Ask a Coach: I used to go to the gym every other day. Now I’m stuck at home and not getting much exercise. What can I do to stay active?
That’s great that you are in the habit of exercising! You can stay home and stay active, too. For starters, you can add movement to your day in small ways. Stand up once every 20 minutes while you’re working to do a set of jumping jacks. While you’re watching TV, do knee lifts during each commercial break. Pace around your home while you’re on phone calls. These little bits of activity add up. There are lots of options for formal workouts, too. Smartphone apps can bring dance, yoga, strength training and more workout classes right into your home. Fitness studios offer free and low-cost streaming classes you can try. Now’s a great time to dust off any old workout DVDs you have, too.
Here are some great at-home workouts you can try that require little to no equipment.
