The good news is you don’t have to invest in a gym membership to keep fit. There are simple yet effective ways to keep fit, that are easy to include into your daily routine. If you feel as though a gym membership is too much of a commitment for you then try the below suggestions and work on your fitness at your own pace.

Go online

This is not a suggestion for you to spend hours watching your favourite Youtuber. No, this means look for free professional workout videos that you can do in the comfort of your own home. Online workout videos are a great way to add movement to your day.

Diet plans

You can get in touch with a dietician and get a personalized diet plan. Having a proper diet plan to work with will help you make healthier eating choices and cultivate a habit of good eating. Today we are lucky to have many wonderful Apps at our fingertips. You can pick from a number of apps to help you keep track of what you eat, count your calories and stay motivated. Remember though to get professional guidance first and to use the apps as an easy to access online notebook to keep track.

Use what you have

You can enjoy a great workout using things you can find at home. For instance, a skipping rope is a wonderful way to work up a sweat while also being fun to do. If your home has stairs, then use them to go up and down which helps tone your muscles. If you have time to include a walk to your day, then make use of the beautiful walking parks that are available in and around Colombo or any other scenic location to enjoy an invigorating walk or run.

Drink water

You must have heard this one countless times and yet it cannot be stressed enough. Keep a bottle of water near you at all times and get into the habit of sipping from it constantly. You will find that you feel less hungry the more hydrated you are. Also, once you get into the habit of drinking water you will automatically cut down on carbonated drinks and juices.

Regular check ups
