First, let’s start with the benefits of working out at home.
A recent survey by the NHS suggests regular exercise can lower the risk of developing many long-term health conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and strokes. Another finding – exercise can lower the risk of early death by up to 30%. If that’s not reason enough to get started, find out more about some of the key exercises you can try at home, and our home workout hero products to help you get moving.
Vital for warming up, cooling down and improved movement and flexibility, stretches should be a core part of any workout (at home or in the gym). Incorporating stretches you’ll experience increased core strength, improved stability whilst reducing your risk of back pain.
