Here are six awesome exercises you can do while working from home.

Elliptical Machines

Elliptical machines are pieces of home exercise equipment that you unquestionably need as part of your set-up. They provide you with a full-body exercise and can be very inexpensive, and, the best mini elliptical machines can even be used while you are working at your desk! Elliptical machines are a great investment to make for the future of your health and for the future of your exercise! You can pick them up from most retailers or sports supply stores. If you are a fanatic about exercise, you definitely need to invest in an elliptical machine, they are wonderful!

Rowing Machines

Rowing machines are another great investment for you to make and they too are very inexpensive, especially if you pick one up second-hand, which you should have no trouble doing. Rowing machines provide a full-body workout and are a great piece of equipment to have in your home, even if you just use them for a couple of hours a week. The workout that they can provide can be so intense that you do not even need to use other machines – though we do suggest that you do for an optimum and maximum workout. Give them a go.

Cycle Machines

Cycle machines, while they only workout your lower-body, are a great investment to make for your health and future. Cycle machines can be picked up for a reasonable price, and like the others on this list, usually second-hand. The best part about cycle machines is that you can pull them up to your desk and cycle away while you are working or doing whatever it is that you have to do at your desk. Cycle machines are a great addition to any home workout set-up – give them some thought if you are slowly building your own home gym.


How could we talk about home exercise without mentioning push-ups? Push-ups are some of the best exercises that you can do at home, with some experts saying that fifty push-ups a day can keep away heart attacks and keep your cardiovascular system in check. Push-ups are very simple and do not need to be explained. We recommend that a good routine to get into could potentially be a hundred in five minutes – if you can manage it – though start small and build up or you might hurt yourself or burn yourself out. Push-ups are a fantastic exercise, and easy to do.


Sit-ups, like push-ups, are easy and great, they are recommended by many experts, also. Sit-ups can be performed by anyone and with great ease, though as your numbers increase, so too will the difficulty. Moreover, sit-ups in combination with other calisthenics will build strength and help you to build awesome abdominal muscles. Sit-ups are a great way to improve your overall physique and look – they can help to contribute to abdominal muscle and make you look like a young Arnie, six-pack and all. Give sit-ups some thought if you are trying to get healthier at home. They’re quick, too, so you can do them while working!


Pull-ups are slightly trickier to do at home, mainly because most people do not have a bar to be able to pull themselves up on. With that said, you can buy hallway-mounted bars that detach when you are done. These are a great way for you to do push-ups while at home, and while working, heck, you could even do them in the middle of a conference call if you are not required to speak. Pull-ups are a great way to build upper-body strength and to improve your overall physique.
