Fitness at Home
by Editorial Team
Tell us a little bit about yourselfI started my fitness journey when I was twenty and chose to completely switch my unhealthy life around. I was soon addicted to the 'health and fitness life' and decided to pursue a career within the industry. Since then I have worked in multiple places starting in Manchester followed by Dubai. My focus is more on "General" health and fitness rather than bodybuilding or something more specific. I believe that fitness isn't just about the exercise we do, but also a healthy mindset and mentality that needs to be developed.
How does a personal coach stay fit without using a gym?One of my areas of expertise is boxing and it's something that I've always enjoyed and used to stay active and fit even when I don't have access to a gym. My skipping rope, pads, and gloves go everywhere with me, even on holidays! Whenever I choose to workout away from a gym environment, I tend to focus on skipping, shadow boxing and bodyweight exercises.
3 exercises to stay fit without the gym
This, in my opinion, is the ultimate movement that every person should include in their training. The benefits of a squat are immense, especially when it is performed with the correct technique and focus. Depending on your ability I would recommend:
3 - 5 sets: aiming to achieve 12-20 reps per set
(Weights and Stance variations can be included to progress the exercise)
Again, another nice and easy whole-body exercise, if it is done with the correct focus. This allows you to engage many muscle groups all at once. Depending on your ability I would recommend:
3 - 5 sets: aiming to achieve 20sec + per set
(Weights or variations in raising a leg or hip rotations can be added to progress the exercise)
This is a great exercise to activate the whole body and allows the heart rate to elevate without the need for too much impact like running or jumping. Depending on your ability I would recommend:
3 - 5 sets: aiming to achieve 15-30 reps per set
