Sometimes the hardest part about going to the gym… is going to the gym.
But now, it’s easier than ever to bring the gym to you! With so many online resources, you can easily find workouts that fit your style, right in the comfort of your own home. No need for fancy equipment, and no need to shell out $50+ a month (not including the cost of a personal trainer). But if you’re not sure about how to work out at home, here are our top 5 tips on how to have a home workout that will have even the most dedicated gym-goers convinced.
1. Get The Right Gear
While bodyweight workouts are no joke, it’s always nice to have a little extra weight around for certain moves. A yoga mat, some dumbbells, and a kettlebell are our home workout must-haves. You can find some very affordable options online or in stores, and fun colors are always a good motivator.
3. Have A Strong Mindset
You can have an incredibly tough workout at home the same way you can have an incredibly tough workout in the gym – it’s all about mindset. If you’re cheating your way through your reps at the gym, you’ll cheat through them at home. Go in with the mindset that you are here to work, you’re here to change, and you’re here to see results.
3. Follow A Plan
Even at home, you have to have a workout plan. Before you start to panic, don’t worry- you don’t have to create your own. The masterminds at DailyBurn have so many workout plans that vary in length, so if you’re looking for a 21 day plan, a 30 day plan or a 60 day plan, there’s one that will fit your lifestyle. The latest addition to the DailyBurn family – none other than Bob Harper, with an intense 60-day program called Black Fire. This program incorporates speed, strength and flexibility to get you results. But like with any plan, you have to stick to it! Thankfully with Black Fire, your workouts are laid out for you every day, so it’s very easy to follow.
4. Listen To The Experts
Just because you’re working out at home doesn’t mean you have to miss out on having a personal trainer. In fact, you can have the best personal trainers right in your home. How, you ask? There’s this amazing thing called the Internet. It’s pretty incredible. You can stream workouts from top trainers like Bob Harper and Anja Garcia with the click of a button, and for much, much less than you would pay for a trainer at your local gym.
5. Stay Accountable
Have a buddy join you for workouts. Start a fitness Instagram. Join an online fitness community. Whatever you choose, find someone who is doing the same as you and stay accountable! So when you’re dying after a Black Fire workout, you can connect with people who are also dying from that same workout. Because misery loves company, right? And when you see some muscle gains or some inches lost, you can share your success!
