Whether you don’t want to pay for a gym membership, you don’t want to head out in bad weather, or you are just not a gym person, there are countless exercises you can do at home to keep in shape. Here you can find a few effective exercises that require minimal space and no extra equipment:

Dancing - Not your typical exercise, but dancing is a fantastic way to burn calories and have fun in the process. You can exercise along with online videos or just make a playlist and keep yourself moving during that time.

Jumping Jacks, Sit Ups & Push Ups - There’s a reason the classics are still around. While some companies promote products that they say take your exercises further, you really don’t need anything but motivation to reap the benefits of basic exercises. Jumping jacks are great for warming up, pushups build arm strength and work out your chest muscles, and crunches are still one of the best exercises for building up your abdominal muscles.

Weight Lifting - Nope, you don’t need to have or buy weights to lift at home. If you’re new to lifting, you can start with something light, such as a can of food. As you need more weight, you can upgrade to lifting milks jugs or laundry detergent bottles.

Squats and Leg Lifts - Your legs are some of the biggest and strongest muscles in your body. They should not be ignored. Leg lifts are great for targeting your butt, hips and thighs, and squats are fantastic for both your butt and your legs. If you’re finding squats to be difficult, you can simply repeatedly slowly stand and sit in a normal chair.

Maintaining an active lifestyle is important, but you don’t have to spend $50 a month on a gym membership. You can find an outdoor activity you enjoy, or even just spend some time walking  every day. You are more likely to keep up with exercises you enjoy, so try to keep up with the moves and activities you find you actually like doing.
