No equipment? No problem!
"I can't exercise at home, I don't have any gym equipment."
Heard this one before? I know I have!
If only people knew how AWESOME and effective a home workout can be, especially when it has been tailored to suit your goals and needs.
And it's not just at home you can get into the habit of exercising - you can do it at work too!
Did you know that as little as a 1-mile walk burns as many as 100 calories?
And a minute of burpees will burn 10-15 calories?
With this helpful info and lots more research done here at KFEF, we have come up with just the right type of exercise workouts that you need.
No expensive or spacious exercise kit at all, very little of your time, just a bit of dedication here and there!
A little and often is the way to go, and build up your skill levels as you learn more exercise routines.
If you start with only 5 minutes a day of simple exercises, that's 25 minutes a week with the weekend off.
Before you know it you'll want to do the exercises for longer and new ones in so that you build up your knowledge and feel comfortable with the movements.
Some simple moves for you to do throughout your day
A great example of one of our workouts is as follows:
- 10 bodyweight squats
- 5 lunges each leg
- 12 chair squats
- 45 second plank
(All of these moves and more are shown on video within our Keep Fit exercise plan).
Repeat these for 4-6 rounds or for a 5-minute interval, followed by a 60-second break.
These kinds of workouts are guaranteed to improve heart and lung function as well as help you to lose weight and shape up those stubborn areas.
The benefits of short interval exercise are endless, and as we mentioned above you only need a short amount of time, a space to squat, lunge and plank - and a positive mindset. Let us do the rest!
