So the cold’s in full swing. For many of you that means taking your workout indoors. Exercising at home has a lot going for it. It never rains or snows. There’s no commute or monthly fees. And water is always nearby
You don’t need expensive equipment to get in shape. All you really need is your body (check!) and a few key accessories to get your fit on. Whatever your fitness fix, Burlington has tons of top gear to help you break a sweat – not your budget – right in your own home.
Of course, make sure to do a proper warm-up and consult your doctor before beginning any fitness routine.
Start Off On The Right Foot
Any good workout needs good footwear. Running? Cross training? Burlington is loaded with lots of stylish options in every size so you can achieve your fitness goals.

Add Some Resistance
Sure, you can do lunges or squats with just your body weight, but adding weights or resistance bands is a sure way to increase the intensity of each move. Put a focus on your core to increase strength and balance. Exercises, like push-ups and crunches, build the abdominal wall, open up the hip flexors and strengthen the lower back.

Make Your Heart Race
Want to really get your heart moving? Then take the stairs. Grab your favorite tunes and activity tracker and get climbing. You’ll instantly boost your heart rate, burn fat and engage your glutes, hamstrings, quads and core more intensely than if you were walking on flat ground. Or go old school with a jump rope – one of the best calorie-burning cardio workouts out there.

Reach For It
Yoga and pilates are great for the home practice. Besides a good mat, you’ll need a yoga block or two to help you maintain your poses. Also pick up a yoga strap to lengthen and deepen stretches, plus improve your overall posture.
You're On A Roll
Finish your workout? Now treat your body to some TLC. Foam rollers are ideal for aiding aching muscles and speeding up recovery. Simply grab a foam roller, locate a tender spot and roll over it several times to alleviate soreness.
