- Walking or running is a great workout that doesn’t require machines and weights.
- For an indoor cardiovascular workout, choose five simple exercises and do 10-12 reps of each one three to five times. Some of these exercises include lunges, planks, pushups, squats and jumping jacks.
- Be creative with your fitness. If you find yourself sitting at a computer for most of the day, try using your chair to perform squats at your desk.
- Take advantage of your new free time! Use the time you would usually be commuting to and from work to schedule a workout for yourself. According to Hakeem, an ideal workout for someone new to exercise is 30-35 minutes.
- Take advantage of free fitness tutorials on YouTube. You can find workout videos like yoga and cardio that are convenient and easy to follow.
