Wellbeing at Home: Keeping fit indoors

At M&P, helping people find the perfect property is our bread and butter. Now we’re all spending more time at home than usual, we want to help you feel as in love with your space as you were on the day you moved in. In this series we’re exploring ways to boost your wellbeing without leaving the house. Read on for some tips on staying active in the home.

One of the key components to physical and mental wellbeing is, of course, exercise. Now you may think that this is unachievable in the home– especially if you don’t have access to a garden. In this blog we are going to try and debunk that myth and highlight several different options available to you– no matter your level of fitness or the size of your house or flat.

Yoga

First up, Yoga- a go-to option for exercising inside. Not only does it take up next to no space, yoga provides a magnitude of both physical and mental benefits. Since the outbreak of Covid-19, several of our favourite London studios have started offering live online streaming of their classes. You can join Lumi Power Yoga (Hammersmith) on Zoom–they have an introductory offer of the first three classes for free, with the option to then buy two weeks of unlimited classes for £30 or £7 per drop-in session. Spitalfields-based studio Benk + Bo is also offering a variety of different online classes from Barre & Conditioning to Pilates or Meditation. One session at Benk + Bo is £10, or you can also buy class packs at £40 for five or £70 for a month unlimited. If you are looking for a cheaper alternative, there are hundreds of free videos available on YouTube including Yoga with Adriene – who’s channel has proved incredibly popular due to her calming but refreshing tutorials. Adriene’s videos are perfect for those looking to start yoga for the first time as she offers in-depth explanations of each pose as she goes through the class.

Gym class alternatives

For those looking to turn up the heat with something a little more intense, London gyms are also turning to online alternatives of their regular classes. Gymnasium– which you may remember from our Best Gyms in Clapham blog– is doing a variety of online classes such as HIIT and Strength & Mobility sessions. They also have a number of ‘workout cards’, containing a list of suitable exercises, that are available to download and use at a time that suits you.  Fulham’s boutique gym studio One London is also offering a wide range of classes on their website as well as free workout routines on their Instagram page, so do go and check those out. If you’re just looking to test the water when it comes to gym classes and HIIT sessions,  the NHS website has a suite of fitness studio videos that are perfect for beginners. Whilst you don’t need any equipment for any these classes, there are plenty of handy alternatives to your regular weights and gym apparatus. Tins of paint can replace kettle bells, whilst bags of sugar or flour can be used instead of dumbbells and dining chairs can be used instead of workout benches. Do let us know if you find anymore great alternatives during this time by getting in touch on our social media channels.

Dance classes

Many of you may be looking to learn new skills during this isolation period– whether it be learning a language or mastering the perfect dinner party dessert. Whilst we do look forward to trying that souffle, it’s still possible to learn something new whilst keeping active; dancing, for example, is a great way to burn calories whilst having fun. You may be familiar with Seen on Screen dance studio, who have three locations across London. They are offering a wide range of online videos on their Instagram channel that will allow you to learn routines from the likes of Beyoncé and the Pussycat Dolls.  For high intensity dance cardio classes, look no further than At Your Beat Studio, who are doing a great selection of online workouts for all abilities, with options including Latin, Jazz and Urban. If you’re trying to keep your kids active as well as yourselves, dance can be a great activity for the whole family to enjoy together.

These are just a few ways to keep yourself active while at home for the next few weeks. If you have suggestions of your own, we’d love to hear them. For more articles on wellbeing in the home, visit the Marsh & Parsons blog.
