Staying active and motivated at home isn't always easy. When you aren't able to get to the gym or follow your usual routine, it might be time to come up with a new one! Whether it's a temporary situation, or your new goal, we've compiled our favorite tips + tricks for staying active and healthy while stuck at home.
