Many people have opted for the convenience of exercising at home.
A growing body of research is demonstrating that home exercise results are quite positive and impressive. From improving functional exercise capacity and quality of life to improving activities of daily living performance and improving mobility to lower extremity strength and reducing the number of falls.
Wow! Who wouldn't want those benefits from exercising at home!
So when thinking about starting a new routine at home, setting up your home with portable exercise equipment is a great way to position yourself for success. Here are 3 quick tips:
1. Assess your space: Before purchasing any equipment, take a look at your home and identify areas where you can exercise. Consider the size of the room, the amount of natural light, and any other factors that might affect your workout.
2. Invest in quality: When it comes to portable exercise equipment, quality is key. Look for equipment that is durable, easy to use, and provides the right level of resistance or support for your fitness level.
3. Choose your equipment: There are many types of portable exercise equipment available, from resistance bands to jump ropes to yoga mats. Consider your fitness goals and choose equipment that will help you achieve them.
