My first workout program was in an apartment during college. As a ballsy senior who had never worked out a day in her life, I thought that Insanity would be a PERFECT first workout program. Well, I did it. It was NOT pretty, and it was LOUD. I'm sure to my neighbors downstairs it sounded like a sumo match was happening each day for 38-45 minutes. Just because you live in an upstairs apartment, doesn't mean you can't do an at home program!
Here's some options :
Chat with your neighbor: explain your goals, what you're doing, and ask what their schedule is like
Choose a low impact workout if your neighbor sucks
Go outside and stream your workouts if it's nice
Stream your workout at your complex's gym (if you have one)
Team up with a downstairs neighbor or buddy and workout at their place
Usually I never have a problem with neighbors (now that I work from home I'm usually working out when they are at work!). BUT if you have a grouchy Mr Feeny neighbor who hates sound, try out this low impact workout that won't cause a ruckus!
I did this workout in my Airbnb apartment and have heard no peeps from the neighbors! Need more low impact workouts? Shoot me an email at email@example.com or click here for 30 free days of workouts on demand!
