As more and more people look to at-home fitness solutions, products like MAXPRO are at the forefront providing the versatility of a full gym but at a fraction of the space of a typical 'home gym'. Setting up a workout regimen is possible when working from home and we can help you make the transition seamless with these 5 tips.
1- Set realistic goals based on prior workouts. If you normally do 30 minutes of cardio at the gym, you can still do 30 minutes of cardio at home. The same goes for Strength training. If you want to take your workout to the next level, increase your weights for the first few reps and then back off of the last few. For cardio, push yourself by adding increments of 2-5 minutes per day.
2- Don't 'wait' around for the best time to work out. It is important for your success to schedule time to work out at home, just like you would do when physically going to the gym. If kids are home and you are having a hard time finding time- include the kids in your workout routine.
3- Use the MAXPRO App! Home-based training equipment has been a long-standing option for people not wanting to go to the gym. MAXPRO is leading a new generation of connected, home-based fitness equipment that allows you to do all the same types of gym machine workouts at home. If you are used to working out with a coach or a trainer, the MAXPRO coaching app is available to give you training programs and even track your workouts.
4- Meditate. Meditation can help control stress, anxiety, and improve cardiovascular health. Meditation can be as simple as taking in deep breaths through your nose and breathing out your mouth or as guided meditations. The sky is the limit here.
5- Give a boost to boring workouts with at-home Circuit Training. MAXPRO is perfect for circuit training. Try starting with Jumping Jacks for 45 seconds, jump down to push-ups for 45 seconds, after that, in the push-up position place your left hand on the left side of the MAXPRO. Grabbing the LEFT handle with your RIGHT hand, keep the MAXPRO close to your body and lead with your elbow and open your arm up for a full side plank. Come back down and repeat 5 times on that side and then switch to the next side. Now, stand up, set your resistance on your MAXPRO and do some squats for 45 seconds, switch it up to bicep curls, end with some alternating lateral lunges (modify down when necessary). Repeat this circuit 3 times.
The struggle is real and working out at home can be hard but with these tips paired with your dedication, you can be successful.
