Work From Home Workout Tips


Working from home may sound like a dream – avoiding rush hour, taking calls from the couch – but telecommuting can quickly lead to a stationary life. It may take some creative thinking and self-discipline, but it’s important for both your physical and mental health to remain active even when working from home. Below we have put together a few tips to keep you motivated and moving from home. 

Schedule Your Exercise 

First and foremost, stick to a routine that includes your regular exercise. Whether it’s an early morning workout to get the brain working or a post-work jog on the treadmill to cool down, building exercise into your daily planner can help you stay on track. 

Use Your Devices 

YouTube and smartphone apps offer everything from yoga and Pilates to kickboxing and more—there’s something for everyone and every ability level. (Check out Remington’s Youtube channel here for more) You can even get a couple friends together and do a virtual workout to make it more fun and motivating. 

Use What You Have 

You don’t need fancy gym equipment to get a good workout in from home. Many exercises don’t even require equipment like sit-ups, push-ups, yoga and many more. Walking and running requires nothing more than a pair of sneakers.  And simple household items such as a bag of sugar, cans of soup or a bottle of laundry detergent can be used as weights if you’re starting out with strength training. However, if you are thinking about stepping up your equipment game, the following are great for at home exercises. 

  • Pilates vibration plate/board – a plate/board that essentially shakes at various intensities. This can be used for exercises and/or stretching.
  • Bosu ball -a half sphere shaped object with one rounded rubber side and one flat plastic side. People usually like to stand on the rubber side, but some prefer to stand on the flat side such as myself.
  • Stability Ball – a medium-large circular object that is usually rubber and somewhat malleable. These are great for crunches, hamstring curls, and bridges.

Set Realistic Goals 

Setting unrealistic goals will establish working out as a chore to be done. Cut yourself some slack and remind yourself that it’s ok not to get out of bed at 5:30am if you don’t want to. There are plenty of other ways you can plan to keep active while working from home and you can experiment with several methods until you find the balance that works for you. If a day has passed and you have not left your desk, let alone the house, don’t beat yourself up. Remember that tomorrow is another day and revert back to your calendar to adjust whatever is in your schedule that prevented you from exercising. If the reason is not necessarily a time one, then take a look at the activity you had planned and ask yourself whether you really wanted to do it. If the answer is no, then try something new until you find one that you enjoy doing!
