The Heights at Park Row Apartments in Houston, Texas goes out of our way to ensure that you live the lifestyle you have always desired and deserved. These helpful tips go beyond the scope of services we offer in our community, in order to provide you with a more efficient routine.

In thinking about routines, we cannot help but think of fitness and exercise. As you may know, numerous fitness gurus have turned to at-home workouts lately, transforming rooms of their apartment homes into impromptu fitness studios of sorts. If you’re exercising without your usual equipment, though, these workouts can get stale fast. Here are a few tips on how to stave off boredom and a lack of motivation with your workouts if you haven’t returned to a normal gym environment.

Give streaming or video workouts a try.

There are tons of fitness studios that are providing video workouts and Livestream workouts online. Some trainers are even doing free workouts on their social media channels, so it’s worth checking your favorite fitness accounts to see what they’ve come up with. Mix it up with different instructors and workout styles to keep things interesting.

Reward yourself for working out.

“There’s nothing like creative incentives to breathe life into your workouts,” says Jennifer Nagel, a fitness coach. So, try to think of fun ways to reward yourself for “showing up” to your home workouts. This could include anything that feels fun right now! Each week, choose a new goal and incentive to make it exciting to reach for your goals.

Turn your regular routine into a circuit.

If you’re not already doing circuit workouts, they can work wonders for keeping things both quick and interesting. They can also help translate gym workouts to home workouts. If you normally do squats, add some mountain climbers and step-ups, and repeat three to four times for a killer leg circuit. Because you’re doing the movements back-to-back, they can still feel challenging with just your body weight.
