They say that the best things in life are free and this actually applies to losing weight. Going to the gym is not a bad idea and it is also healthy. However, if you are a strap for cash, does it mean you can no longer have a fit body because you don’t have a gym membership? The truth is, everything you do inside the gym can also be done outside it and even better because you don’t need to pay a single dime.
On the other hand, you must do thorough research on what routine you should do to improve the part of your body that needs it. With the Internet now available and the existence of YouTube, you won’t find researching hard at all. Having said that, here are yours guides on some basic exercises that you need so you could lose weight.
Running: You don’t necessarily need to join a marathon (especially if you are not trained for it), just so you could lose weight. All it takes is a 15 to 20-run in the park every day for 5 days and that is it. The key here is consistency. Don’t skip a day and do it for one whole year and make it a lifestyle, you are surely going to lose weight in no time. And just so you know, this is already an equivalent of the treadmill session in the gym.
Boxing: If you want to gain some sturdy abs, this sport could actually help you with that. Your thighs could also be taken care of, as you know learn the footwork involved in boxing. Some do this for an hour while others just do it for 30 minutes. The warm up alone in doing this sport would already tighten up your core and not only will your body weight benefit here, but it is also a good form of self-defense. How can you do this for free? Just check out some YouTube videos and you will be able to learn it.
Walking: This activity is often taken for granted especially those people who spend so much time in front of the computer. Fifteen minutes of walking every day could make a huge difference in your health. It would improve your cardio, which helps you regulate your blood flow. Whenever that happens, a balance in your body system is created that also affects your body’s weight.
As long as you make an effort to spend at least a few minutes to get off your chair and go out to move your muscles, there is no way you can’t lose weight. We know how hard it is these days since everybody is almost wired with online games and social media. It is a good reason to also have some tech detox so you could focus on your body’s needs. Remember that you are not exercising merely just to lose weight as that’s a wrong way to put it, but the goal here is healthy and stay that way.
