The nice thing about doing exercise at home is that you can do it at any time you want. No set times you have to show up in a gym and no bad weather you have to drive, walk or ride through either. Apart from that: you can make it as hard as you want. You want it a bit more relaxed? No problem. You don't have to lift these 200 lbs. You don't have to get in shape like a bodybuilder.
Indoor Exercise over the Long Run
But if you do your exercises a few times a week at a time you choose and at a level you feel comfortable with, then you will see results after a few weeks. That is the moment it's going to be great fun. You'll feel that your muscles get stronger and your body gets tighter. Not immediately with model sizes but you'll see the improvement. You just have to give yourself some time. Perhaps a long time. But that isn't a bad thing. Just use the calculator above to see what indoor exercise can mean for your weight loss.
See it like this: it's the result you're working on but it is the fun that you get when you get closer to your goal by the week. Never compare your shape with your final goal. Always compare it with the shape you had when you started. Make a body picture at your starting day, even when it hurts. (You don't have to post it on Facebook) And then a picture every week. After a few weeks of comparing, you'll be confident that your exercises will bring you a great result !
You have a sedentary job? And your company doesn't have a fitness facility for employees? Why not bringing some weights to work. Put them on the floor next to your desk. Every now and then you lift them 10 times. It doesn't take much time. But before you do, discuss it with your boss. If he or she isn't happy with it, then say that you want to work on your health by eating healthy food, having a walk every day and doing some exercise. Your boss will know that healthy employees earn dollars. Sick ones only cost money. If your boss would like to have some more information the video below provides one with all the necessary information.
FUN, FUN, FUN 🥳
Like mentioned above, exercise must be fun. As soon as it becomes a "mandatory to-do" it's gonna be hard. One of the means to avoid this is to combine your exercises with something you like as well. Watching Netflix or Apple TV for instance. Choose a program that makes you happy so that your brain learns to connect your exercises with a happy feeling which makes it easier to do your exercise again and again.
My own Indoor Bike 😰
After being happy about this purchase a year ago the trouble with my exercise bike began. The uncomfortable hard plastic seat came loose. It had to be replaced because it couldn't be repaired. Three months later the console stopped working. A very, very expensive repair. Two repairs costing me about 50% of the purchase price. And since last week the pedals squeak and crack. I am very disappointed. Not only in the product but also in the company's customer service. There isn't any, meaning: phone calls aren't answered, emails aren't replied either. To make a long story short: this "bargain" is not good. Indeed, an understatement . . . . . .
So, in case you want to purchase a treadmill, an indoor bike or an elliptical crosstrainer, please don't go for the cheapest models. The internet is flooded with cheap sales opportunities. The best advice is to stay away from these so called "bargains" because they will turn out to become very expensive due to repair after repair after repair.
