5 Easy At-Home Workouts To Do When You Need To Move Your Body—Stat
© Photo: Getty/Mavocado easy at home workouts There are several trends that I’ve been happy to see fizzle out in the fitness industry: the bikini body, six-pack abs, and the “go hard or go home mentality.” One thing we know for sure is that all movement is movement, and you don’t have to run a marathon or swing around a kettlebell in order to deem a workout as enough. Sometimes an easy at-home workout is all you have time and energy for, and that’s totally okay too.

“Whether you are walking, playing with your kids, or doing a 60-minute, high-intensity workout they all have their own unique benefits,” says Kate Alvarado, fitness instructor at The Class. “We as humans are so busy, filling our days to the very last second of the schedule and it is crucial to implement workouts or movements that allow your body to get out of its fight-or-flight mode,” says Alvarado.

ICYMI: Intense workouts can ramp up your nervous system and create more stress hormone or cortisol in your body. So take this as your cue to give yourself permission to enjoy an easy workout, especially on those days where energy is low, but you want still want an uplifting boost from movement. Below are five curated workouts to try at home that are easy and quick. All you need to do for a boost is press play and feel the good vibes.

1. 15 Minute Chair Yoga For All Ages

For those days when getting out of your chair and finding a spot to workout feels like too much, try this chair yoga video for a quick stretch. You only need a chair and 15 minutes to loosen up and flow with Paris Alexander, co-founder of BK Yoga Club.

2. 20 Minute Gentle Flow To Slow Down Your Mind

When your mind is running in circles and you need to slow. it. down., take 20 minutes with Paris and Alicia from BK Yoga Club. This vinyasa flow will help you find your center and restore your mind in under 30 minutes.

3. 10 Minute Standing Glutes Workout

Take it easy with a 10-minute Pilates-inspired glute workout. One of the best parts about this workout (besides the fact that it’s only 10 minutes) is that it’s standing, so you don’t even have to get on the floor, unlike most other butt workouts.

4. 17-Minute Low-Impact Barre Workout

In under 20 minutes, Alicia Sokol of Barre 3 in Washington, D.C. will take you through a low-impact barre class that’s also friendly for those who are pre-natal. If you’re looking for a workout that’s a bit more challenging, but still easy on the joints, this one is worth a play.
