How to keep fit without a gym membership

Finding the time to go to the gym can be stressful. The last thing you want to do is spend an hour or more sitting around and working out. Instead, turn your home into a fitness studio and get your heart rate up with these easy workouts!

So, whether the gym isn’t your thing or you’re short on time, clear out a space in the living room and prepare to sweat.

HIIT stands for High-Intensity Interval Training. It's a type of exercise that alternates between intense bursts of activity and short rests, and it's a great way to burn fat and get fit.

HIIT workouts are typically done on cardio machines like treadmills or elliptical trainers or just using body weight, but they can also be done outdoors with running or cycling as your primary mode of movement. The key is to go all out during each interval (lasting anywhere from 30 seconds to four minutes), then rest for twice as long before starting again at full speed! I find body weight HIIT workouts are totally killer.

My Favourite home exercise - Burpees

Despite the funny name, and perhaps not being as well-known as pushups or squats, burpees are a challenging exercise that work many of the major muscle groups in your body.

A burpee is essentially a two-part exercise: a pushup followed by a leap in the air. Doing several burpees in a row can be tiring, but this versatile exercise may be worth the payoff, especially if you’re looking for a way to build strength and endurance, while burning calories, and boosting your cardio fitness.

The first thing you need to do is increase your cardio. Cardio is a great way to burn calories and lose weight, but it's not always practical for everyone. If you're not able to run outside or take a class at the gym, try doing HIIT (high intensity interval training) at home instead. This type of workout involves alternating between intense bursts of activity and low-intensity intervals throughout the session.

After you've done some cardio, try adding some HIT (heavy resistance training) into your routine! This type of exercise will help build muscle mass while also increasing strength levels in the body--and it doesn't require any equipment besides dumbbells or barbells if those are available near where you live!

Finally, don't forget about working out at home!There are plenty of ways that people can stay fit without having access to expensive fitness centers: yoga classes online through YouTube, even just walking around town instead driving when possible could make all the difference!

You don't need a gym membership to become fit.

You don't have to be in a gym to get a good workout. You can do strength training exercises at home, like push-ups, squats and planks.

  • Use free weights: If you don't have any dumbbells at home, try using water bottles filled with sand or rice. They're cheap and easy to carry around--and they'll still provide an effective workout!

  • Try resistance bands: Resistance bands are another great option if you want something small that fits easily into your bag when traveling (or even just for storage). They're also very affordable compared with other fitness equipment like kettlebells or weight machines--and they work just as well!

  • Workout with just your body weight: You can get an excellent full-body workout by doing calisthenics such as jumping jacks and lunges without any extra equipment at all--it's all about getting creative with how much resistance is needed based on what type of move needs doing next!

So, what are you waiting for? Get out there and start exercising! It doesn't matter if you have access to a gym or not; there are countless ways to get fit without one. If you don't know where to start, we've listed some of our favorite workouts below.
