As we get further into January, those New Year’s resolutions may have begun to seem less important than they did on December 31st. When it comes to resolutions, we all start out with the best intentions, of course. We commit to setting the alarm an hour earlier, replying to emails faster, and exercising more (or at all).
But, inevitably, life gets in the way; you sleep through the early morning wake up, you take a weekend trip and return to 100+ emails, and you find you’re just too busy to squeeze in that gym date you had. While we can’t help you get out of bed or reply to emails for you (you’re on your own there), we do have some helpful ways to make regular exercise a part of daily life in your TriBridge apartment.
We are proud to offer state-of-the-art fitness centers in our apartment complexes, but we also realize that in today’s world, scheduling time at the end of the day even for a quick trip to the gym can be hard. Plus, there are days when you just don’t want to leave your apartment, and there are some who simply don’t like to workout in front of others. We are here to tell you that even on those lazy days you no longer have an excuse to skip your workout routine. There are tons of apartment-friendly exercise routines you can do in your living room.
Popsugar offers this great workout plan filled with a variety of moves. They recommend printing it out and hanging it on your fridge as a reminder to exercise every day. The routine includes a five minute warm up followed by three circuits of workouts. You’ll finish up with four minutes of core work. A word of advice about this workout – the warm up includes some jumping exercises that could disturb downstairs neighbors. Be sure that you time your workout considerately or skip the nosier moves.
For even more ideas, check out apartments etc’s list of 10 workouts perfect for apartment dwellers. Some of our favorites include the laundry lifts, couch kicks, and rolling chair presses. All of these routines can be done while you’re doing other activities, and they’re all quiet so you don’t have to worry about disturbing anyone.
