Home workouts are an easy way to stay in shape without battling traffic or finding a carpark. Plus, they can be just as effective as going to the gym — you’re just skipping the trip and having a little more flexibility with your schedule.
But figuring out what to do and how to structure your exercise program at home can feel daunting. That’s why we rounded up some of the best workouts for people with no gym membership to help you get fit at home, whatever your fitness goals may be.
For people who don’t have the space to set up a full home gym, this online workout program does away with barbells and power racks for top-notch programming using more space-saving gear. This includes kettlebells, dumbbells, and resistance bands, meaning you can make the most of your living room space to burn fat and build muscle. The plans vary in length from repeatable five-day-a-week workouts to 30-day plans that focus on strength training, fat loss, or running and conditioning.
If you’re new to the gym and want to work up a sweat without worrying about burning out your muscles, this beginner-friendly bodyweight plan is ideal. The workouts combine short cardio bursts with weight-based bodyweight exercises to target the upper body, core, and arms. This workout also includes a warm-up, cool-down, and stretching session that can be done in the comfort of your own home.
Anyone who wants to lose fat, tone up, or build muscle without having to buy expensive equipment will love this workout. It uses bodyweight moves, including jump jacks, lunges, push-ups, and spider-man steps, to help you burn calories and tone your whole upper body. The program comes with a workout plan and video demonstration for each day of the week to guide you through the exercises.
The best part? You can do it all from your own home. This HIIT workout targets the core, chest, biceps, and shoulders with minimal equipment. All you need is a chair, bench, or flat surface to complete the exercises and increase your heart rate in this high-intensity interval workout. This workout also incorporates a warm-up, cool-down, stretching session that can be done in the comfort and privacy of your own home.
If you have a full-time job or busy schedule and want to stay healthy without leaving the comfort of your own home, this is the perfect solution for you. This online workout program offers live and on-demand classes that are divided into over 60 categories, including barre, strength, restorative yoga, and boxing. Many of the classes require no equipment at all, but if you do have some gym gear like dumbbells or kettlebells, you can make even more of the workouts in this online program more challenging.
It’s recommended that you only do this type of intense workouts three or four days a week to avoid overtraining, so it’s an excellent alternative for those who don’t have the time or energy to drive to the gym. The app offers a range of classes for beginners and advanced athletes, so you’ll be able to find the perfect one to match your level and fitness goals.
