You don’t need an expensive gym membership or a personal trainer to get fit in 2017. Working out at home is more common now there is access to thousands of workout videos at the touch of our fingertips. This is brilliant for those who don’t have time to make the journey to the gym, have little ones to look after or simply don’t want the added pressure of exercising in front of others.

Fitness Workouts & Exercise Routines you can do at Home  - by Amanda Nesbitt

There are many fun and easy workouts you can do from the comfort of your own home without having to spend lots on equipment.


You can complete many types of circuits in living areas or in nearby parks, such as the green open space surrounding Countryside’s Parkside Place development.

Circuits comprise of completing a number of repetitions of an exercise without a rest, then after each set is completed, resting and doing more sets. Some examples of exercises you can do in a circuit at home or outside include squats, planks, push ups, hip raises and incline push-ups. There are thousands of workout videos available online for those who want more guidance or circuit ideas.


Any living room can be transformed into a fitness studio for 30 minutes every day! Take the lovely large living room at Little Hollows, by simply moving the coffee table to one side, the room opens up into an area you can use for workouts.

Anything from rocket jumps to skipping and burpees to jumping jacks will help you shed that extra bit of holiday weight and get fitter. You can, of course, go for a jog or a run if the weather permits and make use of any outdoor space you may have.

Extra exercises

There are many things you can do to increase your fitness when you are just going about your daily routine. Whilst you relax on the sofa, you can do buttock clenches as you watch television, or jog on the spot when the adverts come on! Walk around if you are on the telephone, run up the stairs twice to increase your heart beat or do wall push-ups when waiting for the kettle to boil. No exercise is too small if you combine them, you might find yourself burning an extra few hundred calories a week!

There’s no reason to spend lots on becoming more active when you can include a few simple exercises into your daily routine to get fitter. Come and have a look at our show homes in London, the South East and North West to see how you could enjoy keeping fit and active whilst living in one of our exciting new homes.
