As we discussed in last week’s blog, the most popular New Year’s resolutions involve living a healthier life. This includes nutrition, as well as exercise. We talked about our 7 Tips for Healthy Eating in the New Year in last week’s blog, so now we are here to talk about fitness and exercise, specifically in your apartment or small space!

I don’t know about you, but going to a gym in January can be difficult. Everyone is thinking about their new year’s resolution, so the gyms are packed with people trying to fulfill their goals. Now, you may be thinking you don’t have anywhere else to go and just won’t work out. Well, you can’t get out of it that easily. Just because you live in an apartment or small space doesn’t mean that you can’t exercise. We’ve put together a list, as well as some videos of some of the best exercises for your apartment or small space.

What You’ll Need:

  • Resistance Bands
  • Hand Weights
  • Chair or Bench
  • Yoga Mat
  • Water Bottle
  • Towel
  • Any Streaming Device (TV, Laptop, Tablet, or Phone)
