Chair Exercises

Don’t underestimate the power of seated workouts! Engage in chair exercises that focus on strength, flexibility, and balance. These routines can be done right in your apartment, using a sturdy chair as support. Try leg lifts, seated marches, and arm circles to keep those muscles moving.

Dance Parties

Who says you need a dance floor? Clear a small space in your living room, put on your favorite tunes, and have a solo dance party! Dancing not only lifts your spirits but also provides an excellent cardiovascular workout. Plus, it’s a joyful way to stay active.
