Recovery is a great time to think about how to get in shape. Not everyone can, or wants, to spend money on expensive gym memberships. More people are looking to work out at home or find workouts they can do on demand. Exercise is healthy in recovery and there are many ways to create a routine that works on a budget. It just takes time and energy to find the ideas to stay fit. Start with these exercise ideas to get you motivated.
As kids, many people had a jump rope. It kind of went out of style as people got older but it is a great way to exercise for not much money. They are inexpensive, fit in a small bag and can be used in myriad ways, depending on what your goals are in recovery. Online is a great place to start looking for a routine that might help you get in shape.
Go into any store these days and it seems there is a fitness section with hand weights, dumbbells, and exercise equipment to fit out your home gym. They are a cheap way to do resistance-training. Second hand stores sometimes have them relatively cheap. Start by looking online for routines to do a workout at home that can help you get back into shape.
Even if you are not into marathons or 5Ks, you can set goals for yourself to get up and go for a run every day. You might even invest in a treadmill at home if you prefer that over being outside (or the weather is bad). Moderately-priced running shoes can be found in many stores. Look for those that support your foot type and running style for whatever it is you plan to do.
People seem to sell their equipment all the time because lifestyles and habits change. If you know what you are looking for, some stores specialize in second hand workout equipment can be a great place to buy what you need to fit out the home gym of your dreams. Even if you are not sure of a longer term plan, it might be helpful to save money on a gym membership if you can buy something used to help meet your fitness goals.
With the advent of streaming television, people can now stream YouTube or other free services into their living room. If you use a DVD player, that may also be a viable option for getting in a workout. It is best to be safe and balanced in your workout because you don’t want to do something that you will get hurt, but many programs offer a cheap alternative to heading into the gym.
However you choose to work out, pick something that works and stick with it. Work out with a friend, join a place that will help you get fit and suits your needs in the moment and helps you stay healthy in recovery.
