Bring Your Workout Indoors

Yes, summer is just around the corner, and with that, ample amount of time to get outdoors and get your heart pumping with your favorite aerobic activity. But the cool snap we’re experiencing at the moment only serves to remind us that for every beautiful day beckoning us to exercise outside, there are plenty of cold, rainy, muggy, or insanely hot and humid periods that require you to bring your workout indoors.

Bringing your workout home has become increasingly more popular. All it takes is a couple of pieces of equipment such as a treadmill, stationary bike or stair climber, along with some mats, weights, mirrors, and if you like being distracted, a TV. The bigger the room, the more equipment you can have. Check out this home gym in Moorestown for inspiration.

But working out at home isn’t limited to fitness machines. Today, homeowners are thinking outside the court when it comes to indoor exercise. Indoor basketball courts are a growing trend in top-of-the-line residences, whether they’re owned by former NBA coaches or not. Another, albeit less strenuous, indoor exercise activity is bowling. Long a pastime of U.S. presidents in the White House, installing a lane or two at home is a pleasant, low-impact workout (and you don’t have to rent shoes). Lastly, an indoor pool is always a crowd pleaser, whether you’re looking to swim laps or simply rest your joints after a good workout in the gym next door.
