7 Simple Moves To Add To Your Workout Routine Right Now (No Gym Required!)

We get it: Life can be crazy-busy! With work, running errands, picking your kids up from school and extracurricular activities (or your pup from doggy daycare!), your to-dos probably seem endless — so much so that the mere thought of spending an hour at the gym is almost comical. How can you possibly fit in a workout? Here’s some good news: You don’t actually have to get your exercise in at the gym — there are other ways you can get fit, without a membership! 


In fact, there are a number of exercises you can do right at home — whether that’s in your backyard or living room — that will benefit your health without any gym equipment. And when it comes to working out, the health perks are practically endless. 


For one, experts agree that exercise can support your weight loss efforts, and is a great way to keep your heart healthy.1 Staying active could help lower your blood pressure and “bad” LDL cholesterol levels, and make your heart muscle stronger.2


Getting active can even help if you are at risk for having diabetes — studies indicate sedentary people who started exercising were able to lower their insulin resistance.3 


So, if you’re crunched for time but still want to reap the numerous benefits that come along with breaking a sweat, try these exercises. You can do them from the comfort of your own home, build your strength and improve your fitness — no gym required! Start with 10-15 repetitions, then add additional reps as you feel more comfortable.

After trying many different weight loss programs and fads, such as eliminating carbs, fasting and juicing without success, Jenny Craig is my go-to weight loss program to shed excess pounds. I found it to be the only program that works for me. Entering my 50s and hitting menopause, I weighed 194 lbs., which was the heaviest non-pregnant weight I’d ever been. My clothes were tight, and I did not like the way I was feeling. It was back to Jenny Craig to lose weight and to start feeling like my best self again.
