Stuck indoors and looking to get in shape? Contrary to popular belief, there are loads of ways you can lose weight without having to go to the gym, it’s just about knowing the right workouts and the equipment you need. 

Read on for four simple and easy home exercises that’ll make it easy for you to lose weight from the comfort of your living room. 

Walking on a treadmill

As basic as walking sounds, it is one of the most effective weight loss exercises that you can get involved in, and can be done in the comfort of your own home using a treadmill. This is what makes walking an excellent option for everyone because you don’t need the supervision of a gym instructor or a how-to manual to make it work. All you need is to dedicate 20-30 minutes a day.

Cycling on a stationary bike

If you love cycling but are scared of venturing out into busy roads, then why not consider purchasing a stationary bike as part of your home workout routine? Even cycling at a moderate speed is a powerful way of burning calories. 

It also improves the rate of blood circulation around your body, increases insulin sensitivity, and generally improves your health - win-win! 

Yoga

Yoga is an ancient spiritual activity designed to calm your mind, but it’s also a fantastic way to lose fat and relieve stress if done correctly. 

Besides the physical, emotional, and mental well-being associated with practising yoga, you can burn up to 150 calories after practising yoga for 30 minutes. That's a lot of weight loss if you stay consistent in the proper practice of yoga for a decent duration of time.

Pilates

There are two factors that make pilates a tremendous weight-loss option for you. First, you can carry out this exercise without any equipment. Pilates is also great for beginners, so no prior experience is necessary. This exercise gives you the opportunity to burn unnecessary fat while building muscle mass at the same time.

There are a ton of indoor exercises that can help you shed excess weight. In fact, just about any exercise that you do will contribute to your weight loss. The most important thing is to remain consistent in your exercises and the results will follow with time.

Should you find losing weight a difficult obstacle to achieve or aren't quite sure how to execute any of the exercises from above, you should hire a local personal trainer.
