We are going to soon welcome in the new year with all sorts of new year’s resolutions. Almost everyone has fitness on their list, and not surprisingly this is one resolution that gets repeated year after year. Sadly, its often one that doesn’t last long into the new year.
Are you one of those who share your new year’s resolutions? Well, it’s a good idea, because it’s one way of getting yourself to commit to someone close to you. After all, to keep your fitness resolution going for a whole year is a challenge, as there always seems to be something that comes between us and our fitness goals.
We already have pointed you to fitness as one of your goals for 2021, but we feel that it needs to be discussed fully to help you realize that it need not be a bind at all. Approached with the right mindset, we would like to show you that variation is key to making it interesting and something to look forward to while discipline is also one of the main ingredients in a successful fitness program.
Gym at Home and self storage fareham
Many of us would have been prevented from going to the gym this year and would have had doubts about renewing our memberships. If you haven’t already, a home gym needn’t be a costly exercise, and needn’t take up a lot of space. It could even be a dedicated spot in your new home office. Either way, if you are thinking of clearing out a space, even an unused spare bedroom to make way for some equipment, is a good idea. eBay and other platforms have plenty of second-hand equipment which you can start collecting.
Install a TV for added motivation so that you can participate in some exercise routines in your home gym, or you can Wake up with Joe when you need some inspiration!
When you clear out that spare room that is not in use, we at Stop & Store Fareham can give you the ideal solution for the contents: use one of our self-storage units for all your excess furniture and clutter in order to make space for your new exercise routine equipment.
Kitting out your home gym can be done easily and does not necessarily have to take a lot of space. Some of the essential equipment needed is:
- A gym mat to lie on is the first requirement.
- Resistance bands are great to increase strength and tone, and don’t take up space.
- A skipping rope is great to get your heart rate up.
- Dumbbells are essential for basic muscle building.
- A pull up bar if you are one of those who needs to tone the upper body
- A kettlebell or medicine ball is great from improving your core.
- A workout bench is an added extra if you have the space for it.
Now you are up and running and should have all the equipment for you to do basic gym at home.
Walking and Biking
A daily walking routine does wonders for your health. Not only does it get the endorphins going, but it is a great way to interact with others. If you have a dog, then a daily walk can be incorporated into his exercise routine. Fareham is geared up for walking, and organisations such as the Fareham Walking For Health Scheme are geared up for people of all ages to engage in walking activities across a range of distances and courses.
A regular event that you can participate in is the park run starting at the Cams Mill pub. This is a weekly fun event that is 5 km long, and a nice way to meet people. Check whether its program is active, as it has been suspended for a while.
Cycling or trail biking is another excellent way to keep fit. With over 50 cycling routes in Fareham it’s a great way to see the countryside, and to meet people. This year why not join a cycling club and participate in regular events.
Both yoga and Pilates are good exercise forms for those seeking a less strenuous form of exercise. While not necessarily aimed at fitness, regular participation in yoga sessions will promote mental awareness and help reduce anxiety and stress.
Yoga and Pilates are mostly an activity to supplement fitness programmes, and in circumstances where mind and body relaxation and stretching of one’s core is required, it’s a particularly good way to exercise.
Swimming and water aerobics
The resistance water provides is an excellent way to increase muscle tone and get your pulse up and increase your fitness levels.
Besides getting your heart rate up, swimming also helps with weight regulation and helps build muscle instead of fat.
Water aerobics is a form of exercise also using the resistance of the water, with specific routines designed to benefit different muscles in your body. Heated pools are a convenient way for you to explore this method of exercise throughout the winter, and this is fun way to keep in tone.
