The Best Exercise For Beginners at Home

Starting a brand new workout routine can be exciting, but it can also feel daunting if you are unfamiliar with what you have to do to see results. When you are first starting out, it’s important to have a firm grasp of the fundamentals and stick with a simple but effective exercise that provides you with consistent and tangible results. Your workout should provide you with improved cardiovascular health as well as a way to tone your muscles and burn fat and calories.

The best exercise for beginners at home needs to do those three things while striking a good balance between challenging and effective without being complex or overwhelming. One of the largest barriers of entry for people who are just starting out on the path of physical fitness is all of the unnecessarily convoluted plans and terminology that accompany so many training routines and workout recommendations. Sometimes less can be more, and nowhere is this more true than in the world of fitness.

All you need for a truly effective workout routine is a single basic exercise to get you started. In the beginning, you’re not trying to become the next Mr. Olympia or professional athlete, you merely want to stimulate your muscles and develop a ritual that works for you and that doesn’t interfere with the rest of your day. You will get the most enjoyment out of your workout routine if you feel comfortable with it and if it aligns with the goals you have set for yourself.

In that regard, The Scoop can provide you with an incredible exercise for beginners at home without you being forced to dramatically change your schedule or figure out a complex workout plan with a bunch of obscure exercises and terminology. This machine enables you to improve the health of your heart and lungs, burn fat and calories and hone your entire lower body. As a benefit, the Scoop also will strengthen your knees, and it does this all from the cozy confines of your own home.

You might be wondering if starting an exercise routine is right for you. Perhaps you have tried in the past and it simply didn’t work for one reason or another. Maybe the exercises were uncomfortable or too difficult, or your joints hurt too much to deal with the pressure and weight that is often required when performing certain exercises.

It all comes down to finding a truly effective exercise that is easy for anyone to perform yet still produces results you can feel and see. The Scoop makes this possible with its patented lateral movement technology, providing you with a low impact workout experience that produces gym-quality results right from your home.

The Benefits of Starting an Exercise Routine

When it comes to your health, there really is no substitute for exercise. Although some view working out as a hobby it can’t be argued at this point that physical activity is an essential component of health. Achieving proper physical and even mental health is difficult if not impossible without regular exercise.

Physical activity aids the metabolism, which is one of the driving regulatory forces of our bodies. Working out strengthens the lungs and heart, thereby oxygenating the body. The proper physical activity quite literally trains the heart to function more efficiently and the resulting increased blood flow helps your brain and much of the rest of your body to function that much better as a result.

Working out also assists in the digestive process. Not only is this true because of the increased blood flow to the digestive tract, but also because by toning the core you are strengthening some of the muscles that are responsible for the digestive process itself. Blood pressure is also a national health issue and can often be regulated with an effective workout routine. Lowering high blood pressure reduces your risk of stroke, making it an important goal to work toward when starting your fitness journey. Heart disease is still one of the leading causes of death in the United States, and high blood pressure is known to be a direct risk factor for heart disease

Another huge benefit of starting an exercise routine is for the sake of your joints. If you suffer from knee inflammation and achy joints, it is important not to avoid exercise; those who do this often actually compound their problem with weight gain, decreased flexibility, and decreased strength. The right exercises can strengthen key supportive muscles, thereby taking some of the pressure off of your knees. Many find that knee pain can be relieved by effective toning and strengthening.

An increase in mental clarity, a stronger immune system, more energy, reduced inflammation, and even a reduced risk of stroke are just some of the many potential benefits of developing a workout routine. It doesn’t matter what your age is, nor what level of experience you have.  When it comes to exercise, the bottom line is that you stand to benefit immensely from regular physical activity.

Even a minimal amount of exercise can make a dramatic difference in your well-being, and The Scoop makes it easy to start. Experts suggest that 15-minute Scoop workouts performed 3-5 times a week can make a big difference, providing a myriad of potential health benefits and improved quality of life.

The Advantages of Working Out From Home

There are so many reasons why you might not be working out: you might have a packed schedule, young kids at home, or maybe you haven’t worked out in many years. Maybe you’ve gained weight and honestly don’t know where to start. Or maybe you have a bad back or achy joints and are afraid you’ll make those problems worse.

Another common reason why people don’t work out, or fail to follow through on their fitness plans, is the incorrect assumption that the only way to see results is to go and sweat at a gym. First, you should remember that simply going to a gym is no guarantee of results, particularly if you don’t know what you are doing. The quality of the exercise is what is important.

Here’s the good news: you certainly don’t need to upset your already busy life by starting a workout routine. On the contrary, it is easier than ever to get in shape with an exercise for beginners at home like The Scoop. There’s no need to get an expensive gym membership or to waste time in traffic to and from a crowded fitness center in order to get the results you are looking for. In fact, you don’t even have to leave your desk or even your couch if you have the Scoop. And busy people love it, particularly since you can Scoop while you do something else, like watch TV, talk on the phone or check your emails.

There are so many benefits to working out at home instead of going to a gym, especially if you are just starting out and are looking to ease into a new fitness routine without straying too far from your comfort zone. Here are a few of the advantages:

-      Fits Into Your Schedule

One of the main hurdles for anyone getting into a workout routine is finding the time. We are all feeling the crunch, no matter what our responsibilities are, it seems like there are never enough hours in the day. Finding time for the gym sounds like a fantasy, especially if your schedule is already maxed out, or if you are juggling family life and caring for young kids.

When exercising from home, you can seamlessly go from one task to another and squeeze in a workout whenever you have a free ten to fifteen minutes to spare. You can even multitask and fit your workout in while you’re checking your emails or while you’re waiting for the oven to preheat.

-      Save Money

Another one of the benefits of working out from home is that you will be saving a ton of money on multiple fronts. Gym memberships run rather pricey, and this is before you take into account the gas money or bus fare you need to spend to get there.

Working out from home is definitely a more cost-effective way to get fit. You don’t have to travel, pay for public transportation or parking, and you don’t have to renew any memberships.

-      More Freedom

When you exercise at home, you have much more leeway in the way you go about your workout. Want to listen to loud music without headphones or watch TV? With The Scoop, you can combine your workout with your favorite Netflix show or even have a chat on the phone.

Having a wider range of options will help you grow accustomed to workout on your own time and in your own way rather than being forced into an uncomfortable routine in a place you’re not familiar with. This can be counterproductive and hold you back from your fitness goals and is one of the reasons why so many people wind up quitting their routines even while they have active gym memberships. It becomes a hassle trying to develop a routine that works for them in a place that doesn’t fit in with their schedule or lifestyle.
