Lately, I have been finding it a real struggle to get to the gym. Although I have a membership at New Zealand’s best gym, Les Mills, it doesn’t make it any easier to actually use my membership. The main problem is that spring is typically the busiest time for gardeners and we have been hosting a constant stream of wwoofers to help me get on top of things. Although I always say that I’m going to reduce the scale of the garden each summer, that never ends up happening and I always end up being way in over my head! Unfortunately, this also means that I don’t have time to see my trainer, so I have had to resort to training myself, which can always be challenging.
I have already written about the benefits of having a home gym, but in this blog post I thought I would go a step further and provide some ideas for exercises that you can do outside the gym. For those of you that travel for work or pleasure, you may find these exercises useful as you can do them on the road. Some of these exercises use some basic gym equipment which I have invested in over the years.
Please note that I am not a qualified personal trainer but have been an avid gym goer and exercise fanatic over the past 20 years, so I merely hope to pass on some thoughts I have had about exercising remotely to others.
