There are a lot of whimsical reasons to avoid working out and one of them is not having enough space at home. When you live in a small apartment, you get used to making it functional in every possible way. Your living room becomes your bedroom at night, you get used to chopping your vegetables sitting on the couch and you probably dine sitting on your bed watching Netflix. But when it comes to exercising, the truth is you do not need a lot of area to carry out some powerful workouts. A little floor space is all you need to place your mat and get started.

There are a lot of Youtube videos that experts have made to help you with small space workouts. Here are some of favourite ones that you can try out right away.
