Kelsey Wells: The biggest workout mistake you're making at home

Sweat trainer Kelsey Wells has shared her top tips for working out at home and reveals the biggest mistake people might be making.

Kelsey, who has just launched her brand new PWR at Home 3.0 program, says the most important thing you can do is recognise that working out is about prioritising your health.

“My top tip for women working out at home would be to prioritise your workout session,” Kelsey tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “This doesn't mean that you have to stick to a regimented workout routine, it just means that you recognise the importance of working out - and that is to care for your health.”

She says the biggest mistake people make is feeling guilty.

“Ditch the guilt - if you don’t complete a full session or only manage to squeeze in 10 or 15 minutes of exercising, be proud of what you have done and the effort you have put in,” she tells us.

“Guilt is not productive - don’t feel bad about what you haven’t done.”

Kelsey also has some tips for people not sure where to start when it comes to working out from home, particularly if you don’t have any equipment available.


“If you’re not sure where to start, following a workout program that has been created by a certified fitness professional will help take all the guesswork out for you and can be a great way to help you stay motivated at home,” Kelsey recommends.

“For those wanting to work out at home but don’t have access to equipment - do what you can with what you have.”

Kelsey says her program can be easily modified to use only resistance bands, or one single pair of dumbbells.

“If you don’t have dumbbells at home you can use filled litre water bottles, soup cans or laundry detergent to add some resistance into your sessions - there are also many other household items that you can substitute as well,” she adds.

“Through this program, I want to help women remember how strong they are and empower themselves through fitness from the comfort of their own home.”
