Working out at home, in front of the TV, ischeap, effective, besides, you do not need to stand in line for exercise equipment, buy a special uniform and spend time on the road. Solid benefits. But before you start training, you need to consider a few important rules. We have prepared a few popular questions often asked by those who start exercising at home and the answers for them:

– Are classes at home effective? It is believed that the real result can be achieved only under the guidance of a coach, in a fitness club.

– Classes at home can be just as effective as those in the gym. The result depends only on your desire, mood, motivation and, of course, the environment. It is necessary to properly organize the space – so that no one bothers you, the room is well ventilated, there is enough of free space in it – at least four square meters. Well, if the room has a mirror in which you see yourself in full growth – this will help to do the exercises correctly too. Fitness equipment can be minimal, just a jump rope, a pair of dumbbells (they can be replaced with water bottles), a hoop, an expander, training programs, as well as self-discipline and self-control will not be odd either. Fitness bands are another trendy piece of equipment that you can bring with yourself whenever you go and they help to moderate your exercises. So, they are cheap and portable.

– What type of classes to choose, if you need to solve certain problems – to lose weight, cope with insomnia, improve posture?

– In order to lose weight, any kind of physical activity will do. Training increases metabolism, helping you lose weight. But all physical effort will be wasted without a balanced diet and a more active and healthy daily lifestyle. Pilates is ideal for improving posture and for back problems (an exercise system developed by Joseph Pilates specifically for people with a spine complaints). Increasing your energy level can be made with the help of exercises with dumbbells. In addition, we strengthen our muscles, which are the “engine” to speed up the metabolism, because muscles burn much more calories than fat. To cope with insomnia, practice yoga. Breathing exercises, asanas, meditation will return your body and mind to peace and tranquility. If you need to recover from childbirth – use postpartum training, but only by prior agreement with your doctor. For this purpose, low-intensity aerobic training is also suitable – for example, running at an average pace. We would also recommend active walking, cycling, pilates or yoga.
