Small Space? No Problem!

Ok, so I’m a college student. Not only does that mean some interesting meals, lots of homework, napping at 6pm…but it also means living in the dorms. Which is a small space.

At first I didn’t know how I could manage doing workouts in a small space. I always dreaded the thought of going to the lifting room on campus (me lifting beside all the basketball and football players?! Yah, that’s a good one!). So I figured out a few ways to make my small space work.

  1. I got my own set of weights. I use them with my Pinterest workouts and it works out beautifully. I can stay in my own room and use my own tools that I have.
  2. Invest in a yoga mat. Yoga takes up no space at all and it really is a great workout (just YouTube some yoga videos and you’ll see).
  3. Do the Spartacus workout on YouTube. Seriously, I love this workout and it’s my go-to when I don’t want to go anywhere but I want to work on my whole body (even cardio!). It doesn’t take up any space at all and it’s quick.
  4. There are different ways to get your cardio in besides running (outside or on a campus track). Jumping jacks, burpees, mountain climbers, etc. There are tons of cardio exercises to do in your dorm.

So don’t be discouraged by a small space. Think of it as a good thing! This way you can stay in the comfort of your own space and still get a workout in!
