Here’s how to start:
Clean out a spare bedroom or section of another area, such as your living room or garage. Considering the lighting and temperature when choosing the space. Put the items you don’t use everyday into a storage unit at a clean and convenient storage facility and buy some very basic equipment: a yoga mat, some hand weights, a balance ball and some resistance bands. All of these items can be found at your local sporting goods store or at Target You’ll find excellent advice about impactful exercises that don’t require much equipment in magazines like Shape, Men’s Fitness, and Women’s Health.
