Staying Motivated When You Workout at Home

If you want to start a new exercise regime, then you might want to head to the gym. It can be a good to workout around others, as well as having access to a range of classes and equipment. However, going to a gym isn’t going to be possible for everyone. There are costs involved, as well as time constraints. If you can only work out at specific times, due to family commitments or your work life, then it can mean a gym might not work for you. There are so many things that you can do to workout from home, though. But living at home, and in many instances, working from home, how can you make sure that you stay motivated when you workout at home too? 

Here are some of the things that you can do to make sure that it is still fun and you actually make yourself do it.



  • To start with, it can be so helpful to plan out your workouts, and mark them out in a calendar or diary. For example, if you know that Wednesday is leg day, Thursday is going for a run, Friday is an online Zumba class and Sunday is a YouTube yoga workout, you won’t have to even think about what you are going to do. This will make it easier to just get on with it, as the thinking behind it all will have already been done.


  • Not everyone is going to have space for a dedicated space to workout. However, even if you just have a corner of a room to put some equipment, then it will mean that the workout is much more likely to happen. If you have the space, then it can be a good idea to fill it with some equipment, much like what you’ll find on this website: When you have it all set up ready to workout, with some equipment to help, even just a mat and some adjustable weights, then it can make a big difference to how motivated you are to get on with it all.


  • Taking your exercise outdoors can be a good thing to keep you motivated. It doesn’t need to be all the time, but it can help on days when you just need to leave the house. Go for a walk in the park, run around your local area, or meet up with a friend to play a game of tennis. Getting outdoors mixes things up a bit, gets you your fix of vitamin D, and helps to clear your mind.


  • Ditch your excuses! If you are always giving yourself some reasons why you shouldn’t workout, then you will never workout! It can be hard to get going, but once you’ve done it, you will feel better and like you have achieved something.

Make a plan, stick to the plan, and then you’ll be much more motivated to workout from home. 


Retiring in the woods!

Prior to the virus starting my husband started with an idea of selling our home and condo and buying land in middle of no where. We could build our dream home and pool and retire. So we started looking for something that would offer everything we were looking for and finally found our dream property. Of course it came with a neat party barn and the perfect bunk house. The grandsons love to say we are “retiring in the woods”.

We love sitting outside watching the wildlife in the evenings, so my next venture was finding us the perfect, comfy, table and chairs where we could enjoy our view and meals in the evening. I found this table set we have really enjoyed how comfortable it is.

Also, it was so easy to assemble, that I was able to put it together all by myself! But most importantly, it is well built. With three grand sons running around and jumping on them, I love how sturdy the set it.

If you are looking for amazing outdoor furniture sets, or indoor office furniture, I recommend you check out  Their variety is amazing.

We intend to spend a lot of time sitting at this table and watching the view for many years, I am sure I will be shopping again soon, as the pool installation and home building is going to start soon!
