6 Home Exercises When you Can't Make it to the Gym

The gym offers an enriching and motivational fitness experience so we highly recommend you try to push yourself to exercise at the gym at least four times a week. If you can’t, for any reason make it to the gym, these are a few simple, yet effective exercises you can try at home.

Push up

The push-up is a classic. Assume a pushup position. Feel free to modify intensity by alternating the placement of your hands. Lower down by bending your elbows and keeping your body long and straight. Lower until your nose is nearly touching the floor. Lift into starting position.
Do 3 sets of 12 reps


Lie on your back with both hands behind your neck and feet crossed with knees tucked into the chest. Slowly lift your head and neck but keep them straight as you stretch your body to reach your knees.
Do 3 sets of 20 reps

Bodyweight Jumping Squats

Stand up straight with your feet hips-width apart and your toes tilted slightly outward. Bend down as if you were going to sit in a chair and jump up in your same location as high as you can. Take the form of a squat as you make your way back down.
Do 3 sets of 15 reps

Glute Bridge

Lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor, hips width apart. Raise your hips so your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your knees. Squeeze your glutes and core as you make your way to the top. Return to starting position.
Do 3 sets of 15 reps

Jumping Jacks

Stand up straight with your feet together and your hands at your sides. Jump and raise your arms above your head as you simultaneously spread your legs. Then, do the exact opposite without pausing too long.
Do 3 sets of 20


With your face facing the floor, balance on your forearms and toes keeping your body straight. Hold until failure.
