Nothing can break up the work day like a little bit of a sweat session. Even the gentlest exercise can make a big difference to your health, clarity, and work performance.
Obviously you can lace up your trainers and squeeze in a lunctime run, but that doesn't ice everyone's cake.
Lots of exercise studios cater to the city worker, offering lunchtime classes, often less than 30 minutes in duration.
Even if you don't have time to get to a class, try one of these lunchtime strategies to get your heart rate up and improve your day. Here are a bunch of lunchtime workout ideas with no gym involved!
1 - Power Walk around the block
Wear sensible shoes, and get moving around your local block. Walking is one of the best low impact exercises for beginners and elite athletes alike. Do it with a friend and you won't even realize you're working out.
Make it harder and be a hill seeker!
2 - Get to a local park, and try a body weight exercise.
If you have a bit more time, and don't mind getting your burpee on, get out in the park and try our body weight exercises.
3 - Use The Stairs
Poor weather, no worries. Find some stairs and start making your way up and down them. Add in some drills like double stairs, or some bunny hops up!
You don't have to use expensive equipment or gym memberships to get some physical activity in the day. In fact, why not get the workplace involved? It can be heaps of fun to train together!
