We all have those days where going to the gym is out of the question, whether it’s because of a snowstorm, a late night at the office or simply because we just don’t feel like making the 15-minute drive. However, getting a sweat sesh in at home isn’t easy if you have neighbors below you. A few minutes of burpees and you’ll be the target of some nasty stares in the elevator the next morning.
Fortunately, there are plenty of home workout options that maximize the burn while minimizing the noise. Here are a few to try the next time you’re stuck in your apartment:
Cassey Ho knows how to make Pilates fun with her pop song workouts and peppy energy. Your legs will be on fire after doing squats to “Call Me Maybe” three times in a row.
Bring out your inner ballerina with dance-inspired workouts to improve both your strength and flexibility.
While some types are less intense and more focused on meditation, don’t underestimate the burn of vinyasa or power yoga. Check out Tara Stiles or Yoga With Adriene.
A perfect outlet for releasing anger and stress, kickboxing is cardio and an ab workout all in one.
Do a quick kettlebell circuit to get your heart rate up without making too much noise. You can adjust the weight and intensity based on your fitness level.
