Home Exercise Ideas For Apartment Dwellers

Having the right equipment can make exercising in a small apartment convenient, enjoyable and effective.

If you live in an apartment, finding space to exercise can be challenging. Many apartment dwellers take their exercise outdoors; however, in severe weather conditions this is not always possible. There are several ways that apartment dwellers can implement an exercise routine with minimal space and equipment.

Here are some options that apartment dwellers can use for staying fit indoors:

Exercise Equipment

There are many types of exercise equipment that are made for people that live in small spaces. Look for treadmills, stationary bikes or elliptical machines that fold and can be hidden away under a bed or in a closet. This is a great cardio option.


If you don’t want to go through the hassle of putting away large exercise equipment, take advantage of the stairs. Most apartment buildings have a stairwell, so start climbing. If you have many flights, going all the way up and down is a great workout. If you only have a few flights, you might find it easier to use the bottom staircase as a stair-stepper.

Exercise Bands

These are easy to store and provide a variety of exercises by simply changing the position of your hands. Bands are great for building muscle and working on core muscle groups.

Free Weights

Several sets of hand-held dumbbells can be hidden under the bed and can be used for a variety of exercises. They are also very affordable. 

Exercise Ball

This piece of exercise equipment can double as a desk chair or be put into a corner. Exercise balls help to develop the core muscles.

For the best workout, choose several of these inexpensive and convenient home exercise options. Complete circuit training with several repetitions of each exercise.
