So maybe you’ve decided that joining a gym is not for you. So what choices are left? Well there’s plenty of choices, you just need to use you’re creative side.
First, it might be worth getting a few exercise items to get or stay in shape. If you want to build muscle mass, you might want to invest in some dumbbells or other exercise equipment. Just make sure you get some videos, guides or ask someone who knows what they’re doing to teach you how to properly use these items. But if you don’t want to build a lot of muscle, you could take up walking, or possibly running. Those activities could take you outside, but not necessarily. You can always walk at malls or bigger stores.
You can also take up cycling. You might have to invest in a bike and possibly a stationary bike if you don’t want to go out in the weather. Cycling is great because it builds more muscle in your legs than running does and it is not as hard on your joints.
If you want a full body workout, swimming is one of the best exercises you can get into. The problem though is that unless you have an indoor pool in your house, chances are you’ll have to go to a rec center or gym with a pool to do this.
The decision is yours to make. The most important thing is that you find some way for you to get active. The only way you’ll stick to something is if you enjoy doing it. If you hate doing one kind of exercising, try another kind. Have a friend get active with you, so you can challenge each other.
Make sure to protect yourself from injury too. If you have been sidelined with a foot or ankle injury, get it checked by your podiatrist. If you need an appointment to be checked, check out Vargas Foot & Ankle Specialists in the areas of Sugar Land and Richmond/Rosenberg in Texas.
