Health and wellness, getting into shape, are common goals for people going into the New Year. But where do you start? Especially if you have not exercised in awhile and don’t want to join a gym. We are fortunate in Southwest Florida to have more good than bad weather making it easy to get outside and walk for exercise. However, if you are looking for additional ways to jumpstart your physical fitness we’ve got you covered. Here are 5 easy exercise ideas to get you moving in the New Year and for TikTok Tuesday.

Walking is a great low impact way to exercise in Southwest Florida. In addition, it is good for the mind, body and spirit to get fresh air and sunshine.

Social media feeds are full of buff and beautiful men and women sharing fitness videos. Some can be intimidating. Especially if you have packed on a few pounds over the holidays or have spent years behind a desk, not moving much. However, the people in those videos had to start somewhere too. Sure, some are likely genetically blessed with lean muscle and perky pecs. But they still have to do some work to maintain that muscle.

These videos are full of mostly easy exercise hacks that you can do at home or even at the office. I even tried a couple at work today. You don’t HAVE to pay for an expensive gym membership to work on your health and fitness. In addition, you don’t need a lot of fancy equipment. All of these tips use your own body weight and things you have around the house.

I’ve put together five videos that stood out in my feed today and that cover lots of ground. No TikTok account, no worries. All you have to do is scroll down and hit play from this post. In addition, all of these videos are office friendly and kid friendly. In fact, you might be able to do some of these with your co-workers while on a break.
