My Favorite FREE Indoor Workouts!

I don’t know about you but it’s cold!!! Even for Florida it’s cold and there is no way I’m going outside to workout. No way Jose.

So today I thought I’d share what I personally do on a regular basis to stay fit and healthy INSIDE the comfort of my home. Aside from my diet and stuff. Cause I don’t know about you but I like to switch things up and get new ideas.

New for me last year was starting yoga. It was suggested to me by my chiropractor, but as a former gym snob, I thought yoga was for people who didn’t know how to work out. Ha! BOY oh boy was I wrong. Yoga is quite the challenge. But not knowing where to start I looked on youtube for some inspiration.

I came across Lesley Fightmaster and took her 30 day beginner class. She does a great job of telling you how to do things the proper way so that you don’t get hurt and I’ve stuck with her ever since. She has a nice pleasant voice (which is important to me since I’m going to be listening to her for 20- 30 mins). I love doing this in the morning so I’m all flexible and warmed up.

Normally in the afternoon my sons and I go for a walk outside, but I ain’t doin’ it. It’s cold remember? I missed my walks though. Again, I went to youtube and found Leslie Sansone’s Walk at Home workout. Apparently if you’re name is Leslie, I’ll find you on youtube. Ha! Ha! Anyhoo, I love it. It helps get my steps in without any extra equipment and you don’t need a ton of room. Plus she is so inspiring and fun to listen to. It’s been great!

And for an extra arm workout I do wall push ups. I’m 6 foot tall and even in my fittest of years I could never do a push up or a pull up. So I do wall push ups and I can still feel the burn. Always look for an alternative to a workout, don’t just give up and say you can’t do it. Just do it differently. Make it personal to fit your fitness needs.

So there there you have it. Nothing fancy but it’s working for me right now.

What are you doing to stay fit in this cold weather? Share you ideas. I’d love to hear them!
