There are so many ways in which the minimalist lifestyle amazes us! Each day we learn more about this lifestyle, we start to realize it’s such a simpler way of life. Today we’re going to dive deeper into this lifestyle by providing you with some tips for a minimalist fitness routine.
Before we begin, let’s go over a few things to keep in mind before starting your search for a minimalist fitness routine.
First and foremost, make sure the minimalist style of living interests you. Some people that we’ve met over the years only like the minimalist style of living for a week and then off they go onto something else. Make sure you enjoy this lifestyle and it’s worth your time before getting started.
Secondly, make sure you’re willing to change your views on fitness. Many of us have been born into loving fitness and exercise but the minimalist lifestyle may make you view it in a different way. Once we realized that we truly enjoyed the minimalist style of living, we had to change our views on fitness and start viewing it as another way in which we can enhance our life instead of viewing it as an obligation like traditional societies do.
So now that you’ve taken into account these important factors, you’re ready to start your minimalist fitness journey.
We do want to mention that we know minimalism isn’t for everyone and it’s okay! If the minimalist lifestyle doesn’t interest you in any way then that’s perfectly fine. You don’t have to be into this whole minimalism thing, just focus on having fun and enjoying your life. We’ve found that the minimalist lifestyle can enhance your life but if you’re not into it then don’t get into it!
Minimalist Fitness Routine: Three Days a Week or Less
Now we know what you must be thinking, “How in the world am I suppose to accomplish anything if I’m only working out three days a week” but believe us, you can achieve your fitness goals even if you’re only exercising three to four times a week!
If you desire a minimalist fitness routine consisting of only three days a week then we believe that a great, easy exercise to get you started is walking. Walking doesn’t require any equipment and it’s a great way to start getting in shape with minimal results. You don’t have to worry about going into too much detail with this one either, just walk for 30-45 minutes and that’s that!
On top of walking, another form of minimalist fitness is tennis. Tennis can be played by anyone and all you need to play is a ball, a racket, and the motivation to get out of the house. The last thing we recommend for those who are only working out three days a week is yoga! Yoga may not seem like much but it’s an excellent way to start getting in shape without putting too much stress on your body.
Minimalist Fitness Routine: Five Days a Week
For those of you who are more motivated or are taking this minimalist fitness thing seriously, we recommend adding another exercise to your daily workout routine. If you love the outdoors and the sun then we highly recommend going for a walk in nature while listening to some classical music. It’s a great way to enjoy nature, get rid of stress, and stay in shape all at the same time!
Don’t forget that yoga is an excellent addition to any workout routine as it relaxes your body while working out your muscles simultaneously. On top of this, another way you can boost your minimalist fitness routine is to go for a swim! Swimming is great because not only are you exercising but you’re also enjoying yourself at the same time.
Minimalist Fitness Routine: Six Days a Week or More
For those of you who are highly motivated and dedicated then we would recommend adding yet another exercise into your minimalist fitness routine. If you’re a fan of the weight room then we would recommend going to a local gym and throwing some weights around. As long as you keep your body in motion, lift safe, and lift smart then there is no limit to where you can go when it comes to being fit!
Remember that even though exercise is important for good health, so is proper dieting. Not only will this help you achieve that toned body of your dreams, but it’ll also increase your overall energy levels and make you feel better inside and out!
We’re not saying that minimalism is the key to fitness, we’re simply encouraging our fellow nomads to view fitness in a different way. No matter what type of lifestyle you’re into, we all have the ability to be fit and healthy in some way shape, or form.
