Training at home is easy. Whether you have a personal movement space, home gym, or simply an open area in your living room, you have an opportunity to “fit” home fitness into your daily life. Integrated and functional movement training can happen right in your home with very little equipment. Often times, going to the gym is an obstacle that keeps people from exercise and physical practice. With a few basic principles in mind, exercising in your own home can be very successful:
- Designate a specific area in your home for exercise that is clean and temperature controlled. Store your exercise tools in the same area or close by in a closet, on shelves, or in a basket. If you have a home gym, take care of your equipment and organize the space so you have ample room to move between things like machines and weight racks.
- If you live with other people, make sure they know when you will be in a work-out or movement practice and ask for no interruptions and to respect your privacy (or have them join you!).
- Leave your cell phone behind. Commit to waiting to respond to texts and calls until after your exercise session
- Have a plan! Know how much time you will spend and know exactly what you will do in that time period. Be specific and make sure your exercise program matches your health and wellness goals.
