I'm a mum of four little boys. Sometimes getting to the gym or even getting out for a run is completely impractical.
When I first started running, I'd go out at night, when my hubby got home. He has a membership to a 24 hour gym, and keeps odd hours so that works for him.
Sometimes though, I'm just housebound - and considering that exercise is my biggest tool for keeping mentally healthy, I use a few tools for sweating it out at home.
I use YouTube to find HIIT workouts to move my butt to. I love variety in my routine, and youtube offers a virtual smorgasbord!
Here are a couple of my favorites!
The Dark Horse Workout (BURN BABY!)
Fitness Blenders 100 Burpees
I also have a few key pieces of equipment at home that I love. My weighted skipping rope. A set of kettle-bells, and a few (slightly stinky) yoga mats that I use regularly.
I like to make sure I do a mix of workouts, to keep my exercise fun, engaging, and something that I look forward to doing.
Just because I can't always get to the gym doesn't mean I can't sweat it out. Basically any body weight workouts are brilliant, and stuff that I can do around the kids!
