Top Five Reasons to Love Exercising at Home

When it comes to staying active and healthy, going to the gym isn’t the only way to get your daily dose of endorphins. With the current restrictions in place, exercising at home is a great activity to keep busy, fit and healthy.

Whether you’re exercising to increase your strength, build endurance or boost your energy levels, you can achieve plenty without having to leave your home. The benefits of exercising at home don’t stop there! We picked out five additional benefits of exercising from home that will help to keep you on track with your health and fitness goals.

Save Money

With no membership fees or car parking costs, exercising at home can save you money. You can invest in basic equipment to keep you going throughout lockdown and beyond, or even use household items like bags of sugar or 2l bottles of pop, as the weight is clearly displayed on the packaging.

One of the biggest advantages of exercising at home is that you can put on your gym gear and work out whenever it suits you without spending money.

Privacy and Comfort

Exercising at home can give you time and space to workout in your own time. You can also go as fast or slow-paced as you like. For fast-paced, HIIT workouts, we love Joe Wicks and for a more gentle way to workout, choose a yoga tutorial on YouTube like Yoga with Adriene. You can even get the kids involved with book themed yoga classes from Cosmic Yoga.


You can have full control over when you choose to exercise. When the weather turns grey, you can put your favourite gym clothes on and exercise, no more procrastination about whether to go to the gym or not..

Save Time

Scheduling your gym workouts around work and family commitments can often prove to be difficult. Do you remember all those times when you booked a gym class after work and you end up working late? You don’t have to worry about getting there on time now, just switch off when you’re ready and commence your workout.


The final and probably most important reason is that exercise is fantastic for health and wellbeing. Whatever form of exercise you choose, however you choose to workout, you are guaranteed to feel better afterwards. Trust us, it's in the science!
