Okay, so we all know that exercise is important. It can help you fend off diseases, gain energy, build confidence, lose weight, and more. But let’s be real: sometimes you just don’t want to get up at 6 a.m. just to hit the gym (but mad props to those who do!). Sometimes you just want to be… lazy.
Lazy doesn’t mean you don’t need to exercise, though, so here are some awesome products from Amazon that make exercising just a little bit easier and more fun for our fellow lazy girls.
Yoga is great for your body. It helps with your flexibility, circulation, and heart health – just to name a few benefits. And one of the best things about yoga? You don’t have to leave your house to do it. Just pull up a tutorial on YouTube (this one by badass yogi Jessamyn Stanley rocks) and stretch that body out.
One thing that really might help, though, is a yoga mat. This one by Incline Fit is cute and practical. It comes in a variety of colors and has a strap to make it easy to carry. It’s also the perfect surface for yoga and stretching. Not only is it long, it’s also thick and cushioned, which is a major plus for ladies with sensitive backs. But be careful: it’s so soft and comfortable, you may just want to fall asleep on it!
Love dancing or clubbing but don’t like exercising? Zumba’s a great bet.
If you want to try it but are too lazy or nervous to go to an in-person class, then look no further than this five-DVD set.
Each DVD has a different target area but they’re all packed with great beats and fun dance/exercise moves. One DVD is called “Super Cardio Dance Party,” perfect for when you just feel like dancing and want to get a little more out of it. And you don’t even have to leave your house! It’s also so fun to do with your friends, so call your besties and have a dance party in the privacy of your own home.
Kettlebells are great for arm and core workouts, so they’re definitely a great thing for a lazy girl to have at home. You can even use them while sitting down, a definite plus for us gals who just don’t feel like getting up. One weight for multiple needs – what could be better?
Pastel kettlebells, that’s what. This set from Tone Fitness comes in bright orange, purple, and green, so you can easily identify the various weights and decorate your room when the kettlebells are not in use.
Even when you want to be lazy, sometimes you just have things you need to get done, like walking your dog or cleaning your room. These ankle/wrist weights are a great addition to those tasks because they help you gain some muscle while doing what you already have to do. Talk about multitasking!
All you have to do is put these weights around your ankles or wrists using the velcro straps and you’re good to go, weightlifting without going to the gym or taking any extra time out from your day!
This may not be an actual piece of exercise equipment but drinking water is so important,, especially when you’re working out. The fact of the matter is that 40 percent of Americans still don’t drink enough water.
That’s where this water bottle comes in handy. It holds 30 ounces of water, and, though it will clearly need to be refilled throughout the day, it offers time markers to remind you when you should be drinking water and how much of it you should have. It also has motivational remarks on it, so it’s a water bottle and motivational speaker all in one!
