Creating a Home Workout for the Winter Months

Winter is fast approaching and many of us start to hibernate in our homes around this time of year. We’d rather avoid facing the elements and would rather remain in the warmth and comfort of our abodes. With the coronavirus situation in the forefront of most of our minds, many of us would also rather stay home to avoid the spread of the virus too. However, it’s important to bear in mind that this doesn’t mean you no longer have to exercise. Instead, the recommended advice that you get one hundred and fifty minutes of moderate aerobic exercise, or seventy five minutes of vigorous aerobic exercise, remains. So, what can you do to tick all of your boxes? The answer is coming up with sensible and well thought out home workouts. Here are a few that you might want to try out!

A Simple Home Workout

The simplest forms of home workout tend to include using basic gym equipment like kettlebells, handheld weights, resistance bands and more to carry out a variety of activities. You can do squats. You can do kettlebell thrusts. You can do sit ups. You can do press ups. You can do whatever you please! Make sure to follow safe and approved tutorials, maintain proper form and never push yourself too far. You can find plenty of home workout equipment to help you achieve your goals. You’ll find that TK Star has options aplenty!


Cycling is an extremely effective form of exercise. When you cycle, you can expect to build muscle mass - particularly in your legs - as well as burning calories and fat and improving upon your stamina. Now, we tend to associate cycling with outdoor bicycles and heading outdoors, which may be unappealing in the winter when it’s cold, frosty and often raining. But there are plenty of static bikes you can invest in for use inside your home. These will give you the same workout but in warmth and comfort without the wind blowing on you. Take a look at all the options available and choose the best for you. Ideally, you should look for something with multiple resistance settings. While your legs may ache the morning after your first ride, you will quickly get used to it and are likely to actually start enjoying your ride. You could also multitask, having a television in front of your static bike and watching your favourite shows while you cycle.


Roll out a yoga mat, put some stretchy comfy gym wear on and follow one of the many yoga tutorials out there. Yoga can increase core strength, balance and flexibility, so it’s a great and relaxed option for anyone looking for a more laid back form of exercise at home.

These, of course, are just a few suggestions. There are plenty more forms of exercise you can carry out at home. Try a few and settle on the ones you enjoy most. It will make all the difference to your health and wellbeing without you having to head outside!
