How to feel confident as part of your Winter Warm up
Follow these simple tips and watch our video to find out how you can get active at home this autumn.
Fit it in
It can be hard to find the time to get active during the day. You don’t have to spend long to feel the benefits – 10 minutes is enough to get your heart pumping and your body feeling better. Once you’re into the groove why not try and fit in another 10 minutes later in the day?
If you’re not sure how to get active at home, simple strengthening exercises are a good place to start. Try chair sits or lunges for your lower body, arm raises for your upper body and sit ups for a strong core.
Props to you
You can use everyday items from around the house as exercise equipment to add more to your home workout. Try a tin of beans in each hand for bicep curls, or a chair for tricep dips.
Find the right exercises for you
Experiment with different exercises and make sure your body is comfortable when you try them. Start slow and build up. Above all, make sure you enjoy it!
