Stay fit while staying at home! You don't need a full gym to get a great workout in. Professional personal trainer Amoila Ceaser has simple and easy tips to elevate your workout using household items.

  • Use canned food as weights. And pro tip: you can wrap multiple ones together to turn it into a heavier make-shift dumbBell
  • You can get a full body workout in using just a chair. Use it for step ups, tricep dips or elevated push-ups.
  • Use paper plates as makeshift sliders. This adds resistance when you are doing mountain climbers, tucks or lunges.
  • Use your couch as a piece of equipment. Elevate your legs for split squats, elevate legs, seated squats
  • Load up books in a backpack and use it as a makeshift sandbag.
  • If you are social distancing with someone, do partner workouts with them. Hold the other partner accountable to make sure you are getting in your daily exercise.
