5 Best At-Home Workouts You’ll Actually Do

July 19th, 2018

I am never one to shy away from the latest beauty product, nutrition craze, or holistic healing regime—in fact, I like to see all of the new wellness trends and products as a personal experiment that I can’t wait to try just to see what happens, how it compares to what I’m doing now, and if it actually works. But, one thing that hasn’t ever been able to do it for me is at-home workouts. This may be due to me having to schedule nearly everything into my calendar if it’s going to get done, and signing up for a workout class adds that extra layer of accountability. Before, if I told myself I would ‘work out at home’, I always found 100 other things I had to do instead. Now, I realize that I was self-sabotaging myself and my workout routine by making excuses left and right. I either didn’t have time to do it, didn’t have my workout gear, my hotel room didn’t have a gym, or the classic, but I’m on vacation. And it turns out, I’m not alone.

As I prepared to write this post, I asked many women about their favorite workouts they could do at home, only to receive the ugh with a raised upper lip and a slight eye roll. There were only a few I spoke to that could really give me some half-way decent answers, and even then I wasn’t convinced. So, I decided to strip the excuses and stop letting life get in the way of something that genuinely makes it more enjoyable. I committed to 14 days of working out in my living room and, spoiler alert: I’m now a huge fan. Here’s the 5 best at-home workouts you can find on the web or your phone that will help you to stay trim, toned, balanced, and energized with minimal space and little to no equipment.

  1. Body By Simone sounds perfect for me! I actually really enjoy working out and whenever I do I feel extra confident, energized, and motivated. That being said, there are just some days where I can find a million reasons why not to exercise. I like classes for this reason because if I don’t go I’ll be wasting my money, but then again, they aren’t at home. Usually what I’ll do is play so YouTube workout videos or watch a workout tape because it’s always more fun working out when you’re not alone! 30 minutes is really all you need to get your heart rate up and blood pumping and that is exactly why I’m going to download this app! Thanks so much for the recommendation. 🙂

  2. Love the calm app! Ive bought the BBG program but never followed through. I hear the phone app is the way to go! May try that. Thanks for the inspo!

  3. That pink yoga outfit in the first photo, where is it from?! I must have it!
