I recently had someone object to working out at home because, “their space is small and cluttered.”
I get it. But guess what? I live in a small two-bedroom with three other people. And all of our stuff. And I make it work.
How? Well, a few ways:
- I work really hard to keep clutter at bay. A short, daily routine of everyone picking up and putting away. And strategic storage. Almost every piece of furniture has drawers, or cupboards, or some sort of built-in storage – this has been the best choice
- Minimal equipment. A few sets of weights, a foam roller, a few resistance bands, and a yoga mat. It’s all I need to get a full body workout. I have been considering adding a door frame mounted pull-up bar, but that won’t take up too much space
- My fitness basket. I have a basket where all of my stuff lives. It sits in the living room, next to the TV. I see it, and every time I want to be lazy, motivation comes from being taunted by my gear
- I’m also a runner. So a lot of my workouts are outside. I also have a good-sized private outdoor space where I can take my workouts when the weather is lovely As well
So, small space workouts? Not a problem! The only thing standing between you and success – even in a tiny apartment – are your excuses.
Let’s get it done.
