Exercise is the act of keeping fit. People do it for different purposes, while some do it to look good especially when they dress up, most people do it to be healthy especially when it is recommended by medical experts.
However, nowadays, most people go to the gym to look big and intimidate others while some do it to get jobs as bouncers for politicians, club houses, bars, etc.
Exercise is very essential for healthy living hence the need for everyone to engage in it. One of the things that discourage people from exercise is that they believe it can only be done in the gym.
However, exercise can be done anywhere especially at home, without necessarily going to the gym. And many people also believe that until a physical instructor is around before they can do any exercise while some believe that exercise will make them to build up muscles hence the reasons why they are avoiding it.
Some believe that when you mention exercise, it is only Press-up, Dumbbell standing shoulder press, Dumbbell squat, Burpees, Plyometric, Jumping Lunges, Dumbbell calf raise, Spiderman Press-Up, just to mention a few, are the only exercises.
Many people don’t even know that there are some simple things they can do to achieve the same result they would have gotten at the gym.
Walking is a simple exercise that everyone needs especially those who are always on the wheel (driving). Although, in the gym, treadmills serve the same purpose but for those who cannot go to the gym or afford one, can just take a walk along the road or street. Many car owners are fond of moving from their cars to their offices and to their homes and definitely they won’t stand but sit. That is the reason why they need to leave that car at home and take a walk once in a while.
Another simple exercise that can be done is dancing. It is called aerobics by gym instructors but that can be done whenever music is being played. One advantage of dancing is that every parts of the body is fully engaged. So for those who are not involved in any exercise and don’t also like dancing when music is on, are not doing themselves any good.
Swimming is another exercise that one cannot overlook. Although, it is difficult for many to access swimming pool but whenever they come across a river, stream and others, they should not hesitate to utilize it because it is an exercise that can also help burn fat.
Skipping exercise is simple and can be done by anybody. It is an exercise that also engage every parts of the body. Getting a skipping rope is cheap and it can be done in a small space. It can be regarded as stationary exercise.
For those who can afford a bicycle, it is another form of exercise. It is an exercise recommended for people whose blood are not flowing very well especially people with stroke. It helps in the circulation of blood and can also be in the gym especially for those who don’t know how to ride a bicycle.
Climbing of staircases instead of excavator and elevator
Lastly, this might not be regarded as an exercise but it can also serve the purpose. For those who are always on the wheel, any space should be seen as opportunity for exercise. Whenever they are in the office or during a visit to anywhere, instead of making use of the excavator or elevator, just simply use the staircase. It will help the body and serve for the exercises you have not been doing.
