How to build a fit and healthy body without going to the gym

Keeping fit and healthy is not only good for your body but also for your mind. You may want to exercise, but maybe you are unable to go to the gym. Here are some practical tips for getting healthy and fit at home.

First things first:

  • Try and eat healthy food like fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts every day. These will keep you strong when you exercise.
  • Drink lots of water so that you don’t get dehydrated.
  • Make sure that you warm up (stretch your muscles) before you exercise.

Get moving:

  • Start with easy exercises and then move on to more difficult ones.
  • If you feel safe, you can walk or run around your neighbourhood.
  • There are many exercises that you can do at home, such as push ups, sit ups, crunches, plank, squats, lunges and yoga.
  • You can download exercise apps on your phone. These will show you how to do different exercises.
  • If you feel pain while exercising, stop immediately so you don’t get injured.

It’s also a good idea to get a friend to exercise with you – this could keep you more motivated.
