Fun Ways to Stay Active in Your Home and Community

Article Staying Active 02

At NewStyle Communities, we believe that health and wellness is the key to a happier life. That’s why our maintenance-free homes and communities throughout North and South Carolina are filled with endless opportunities to do what you love — and love every minute of it.

From first-rate amenities like tennis courts and scenic walking trails to flexible, open space in your home that can be used however you wish, you’re free to do whatever makes you happy. When you live here, staying active has truly never been more fun! Take a look at how you can spend a day in your new home and community:


Start off your morning with a cup of coffee in your light-filled kitchen, then head out to a walking trail for a leisurely stroll. Whether with neighbors or on your own, a nice walk is the perfect way to clear your mind and get ready for the day ahead.

Put together a fun and casual walking/jogging club with your neighbors, and meet at the same time each morning to enjoy each other’s company while swapping workout tips and motivation. Plus, when it’s warm out, you can always head to the tennis courts for a competitive match with friends, or hop into the pool to swim some laps.

When you don’t have to waste time on external home maintenance, you can simply enjoy the comfort and convenience of your outdoor living spaces. Head to your patio or courtyard to unwind with yoga or fun, no-equipment exercises, like lunges, high knees, squats, or whatever you like. Set the tone with your favorite music and enjoy the peace and quiet of your open space.

Best of all, with the flexible rooms inside your home, from a sunroom or study to a secondary bedroom or den, you can create an at-home gym that allows you to stay active whenever you want, at your own pace. Incorporate your favorite workout equipment, like dumbbells, resistance bands, and step machines, as well as a mini fridge to keep your drinks cold for an added level of “gym luxury.”

Between all of the mixing, mashing, and chopping, cooking can be a real workout. In your pristine kitchen, cook up a sweat! You already know that cooking keeps you on your toes, so try out new recipes (or even more than one at once) that challenge your culinary skills and keep you active. The best part is the post-workout meal!

If you like to unwind in the evening with hobbies like writing, reading, arts and crafts, etc., try a standing desk as opposed to sitting down. You don’t have to purchase one either — you can simply place whatever you’re using on an elevated surface, and voila. This way, you can exercise by doing calf raises and leg extensions, or even just by simply moving your body however you like. You won’t believe how much a little movement will get your creativity flowing.

At NewStyle Communities, staying active is all about doing the things you love. Whether you like to exercise outside with friends and neighbors, utilize amenities, or get creative and find new ways to stay active in your home, there are so many opportunities to feel your best throughout the day. This winter (and beyond), staying active makes your daily life more rewarding than ever!
