The Monmouth County GYMGUYZ provides tips on how to turn your home into a gym as most fitness facilities have closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Whether you have equipment on hand, or you don’t, your home has now become more than just a place to relax and lay your head at night. The challenge is finding the motivation to be active.

Below are some tips on how to rise above those challenges with some basic workouts you can do while quarantined in your home.

Full Body Workout

Start by making sure you’re in your workout gear and have your water with you just as though you were leaving for the gym. It is important to get in the same mindset.

Upper Body

If pushups on the floor are not your strong suit, use the arm of your couch for an elevated version. Complete 12 reps.

Next, inchworm from one end of your apartment and back followed by a thirty-second rest. 

Don’t forget about your coffee table! This makes for a perfect piece of equipment to perform tricep dips. Complete 12 reps.


Do you live in an apartment building with multiple floors? Even in a house from one floor to the next, run those stairs! At the bottom of the stairs, don’t forget to do 10 incline or decline pushups.

Cool Down

When all is said and done, cool down with some stretches on the floor and use your walls for some upper body work.
