You’ve heard of Zumba, you’ve tried Pilates and maybe you had one disastrous Pure Barre experience, but have you heard of the latest workout trend? We call it Homercise.*
View the slideshow above and get started on your new exercise plan!
The name hasn’t gone viral (yet), but if you put your mind to it, maintaining your home can help your body! Think about it: those heavy boxes you need to move to the garage can double as squat thrusts, and your daily cleaning routine can easily turn into a cardio session. So ditch the personal trainer and follow this BrightNest-approved workout plan, instead. You’ll be bathing suit-ready faster than you can say, “Shake Weight.”
Warning: Before getting started, consult your doctor to make sure your heart is healthy enough for Homercise.
To make Homercise even more fun, turn it into a game with our friends at Fitocracy! You'll earn points and move up in levels when you meet your fitness goals. Have fun with it!
