  • Get Zen with Yoga

    Practicing yoga poses is a quiet and relaxing way to wind down and get in some good exercise. Try the poses on your back deck or balcony porch.

  • Easy Equipment

    Free weights, exercise bands, ankle weights and stability balls are inexpensive equipment that can help you create a mini-gym at home.

  • Burn with Bicycle Crunches

    Bicycle crunches are one of the most effective abdomen exercises. This floor exercise requires minimal movement and won’t disturb your downstairs neighbors.

  • Push it with Plank

    Plank is a challenging but rewarding fitness move that provides a full body workout and especially targets your core.

  • Classic Moves

    Pushups, crunches, squats and floor lunges are all classic fitness moves that will help you tone and tighten in your very own home.

  • Active Apartment Dwelling

    Make simple lifestyle changes to burn extra calories throughout the day. Even if you have an elevator, take the stairs every time. Vigorously clean your apartment once a week – you can burn about 300 calories per hour of house work.
