You’d associate a gym or yoga studio with exercise, right? When you work from home and opt out of a membership, Murdock explained, it’s important to make room for exercise in your living space by reserving either an entire room or just a section of one, and transforming it into your workout spot.
“Have your equipment (mat, weights, bands, etc) in a central location that is easy to access. If you need to shoo everyone out while you workout, do it,” she told INSIDER. “If you need to move furniture to create space, do it. Make your workout time and space sacred so you and everyone else in the house know that your workouts are important.”
Kelly Borowiec, CPT, founder of Keebs Fitness suggested that, after setting up a designated workout area in your home, fill it was a few basic pieces of equipment, like a set of 5-10lb dumbbells and a thick mat, to start.
“As you begin to exercise more frequently at home, you can reward yourself by buying more exercise equipment,” Borowiec said.
