Our Solution

Getting fit at home could be on the cards for many Brits this coming New Year, as health-conscious New Year's resolutions start to take hold. Losing weight or boosting fitness is one of the most popular New Year's resolutions, especially for those who felt they had over-indulged a little too much during the festive period. As a result, January sees a huge boost in the number of people signing up for gym memberships. Health blogger Rachel Mainwaring, however, has said that training at home could prove to be equally successful for those who give it a try. Writing for walesonline.co.uk, Mainwaring explained that, provided individuals have an accurate and achievable set of goals outlined, there's no reason to say this cannot be achieved from the comfort of their own home. Installing a garden gym, for example, could prove beneficial for those who haven't the time or capability to get out to local facilities, Mainwaring said. She added that it can be "surprising" just what is achievable by installing basic gym equipment around the home or in a specially-designed outbuilding. Once the installation is complete, Mainwaring said that homeowners should simply enjoy themselves. "Remember, health and fitness is for life, not just for New Year's resolutions," she told localnewsuk.co.uk. "Find something of interest to you and you will succeed in your goals. You only get one life, so make the most of it."
