Some days, I really don't fancy heading to the gym and working out in that environment. You know the days where you look at yourself in the mirror and your skin has broken out or you are on your period, feeling sluggish and the last thing you want to do is pop on some tight workout gear that is going to expose your bloatedness. Days like these I pull out my yoga mat and work out at home in the comfort of my oversized Adidas tee with all its food stains and some regular Primark leggings. I know there are probably a lot of you who have been in a similar position or you don't like the gym environment at all and would like some guidance on effective home workouts.

Yoga with Adriene
I never thought I would be one of those people that are into Yoga but after starting classes a few months ago out of curiosity, I have become a Yoga enthusiast. Since discovering Yoga with Adriene on Youtube, I alternate between my weekly Yoga classes at the gym and Adriene's various 30-day challenges. Yoga is more than just meditation, it focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing.  Adriene guides you through each video at a slow place on how to improve your practice and her calming voice helps you to feel relaxed.

I am sure you have all seen GraceFitUK's resistance bands and home fitness guides floating around on Instagram. Grace is a student fitness blogger from London who started off filming her workouts on Youtube and over the past year has produced both gym and home workout guides which you can purchase at - I believe each guide comes with a resistance band and some guides come with dumbbells too. Grace has created a community of women who follow her guide which you can become a part of too using the hashtag #GFG on Instagram. The hashtag is also a great way to meet other women who are in the same position as yourself and form friendships.

Cassey Ho is one of the women who inspired me to push myself on my fitness journey. The first video of hers that I discovered was the Victoria Secret Angel Arm workout almost 5 years ago and to this day, I still use this video as part of my upper body routine when I am training at home. Her channel Blogilates has tons of home workout videos for every muscle group so all you need is a yoga mat and Cassey will guide you through the rest.
