The Best Exercises To Do In Your Living Room With No Equipment

In today’s world it may not always be practical to attend a gym for regular exercise. There are health regulations to consider, crowds and perhaps not feeling as comfortable as we would like to be in a gym environment. Luckily for us, if you have space in your room equivalent to a living room then you may just have one of the best exercise areas ever invented!


Getting a great workout in doesn’t always mean that you need access to the fanciest gym equipment. You can get a great workout in (at any level of fitness) in the comfort of your own living room with no equipment. All you need is some space, no fall or trip hazards around you and a “can do” attitude.
