No More Skipping

There are some days in a month when going out to workout seems tough. Other times, the weather outside does not seem to be in favour of a healthy regime. The reasons can be many but don’t forget that they come with a price tag. But, as they say, "where there is a will there is a way", here we give you some indoor workout ideas which do not depend on the weather or availability of exercise gears. All you would need to do is take up an empty corner of the house and start using it as a fitness shrine.
