to start working out at home
If you are determined that you are going to start working out at home, lucky you – you have the benefit of being able to train in a comfortable space free of judgement. This is what exercise is all about. Usually if we’re training at the gym, it can be hard to feel like we’re competing with others or that other sare judging us. But when you train at home, it’s easier to focus wholly on your own experiences and your own fitness journey.
However, you may still be tempted to compare yourself to others online right now. It’s easy to become distracted by beautiful influencers on Instagram making everything look so easy and effortless. But everything is difficult at first – the key is to stay focused and do a little bit at a time.
How to start working out at home

You may want to start by looking at some of the following YouTube resources:
These resources are great for finding ideas for getting started but if you’re looking for a step-by-step guide to getting your fitness levels back up, then you may want to consider hiring an online coach, especially a coach that can offer a range of educational tools and resources alongside digital coaching software such as our state-of-the-art coaching app so that you can follow along at your own pace.
How should I setup my exercise space at home?
If you want to make a workout space at home, you should try to create a space that is as uncluttered and spacious as possible to allow you to move freely in all directions. At a minimum, you should be able to lie down full length on the floor with your hands and arms stretched out above your head and being careful that if you plan on swinging any kettlebells around, there’s nothing valuable in the vicinity that could get knocked over.
Here’s also a quick list of suggested equipment you should consider having at home:
- Water bottle
- TRX suspension cables
- Resistance bands
