On a perfect sunny day, it’s easy to get motivated for a brisk walk in the park or even a challenging jog around the neighborhood. But when spring showers make the outdoors a less-enticing place, it’s much harder to find the will to work out.

Don’t give up on getting fit by waiting until there’s a more favorable forecast. Instead, get creative indoors with your rainy day exercise.

One of the most important requirements for a successful at-home indoor workout is some good music, says personal trainer JJ Flizanes, director of Invisible Fitness, a Los Angeles-based coaching and training company.

“It doesn’t have to make you run up and down the halls at level 10,” she says. “Just so you want to start toe-tapping and shaking your body and move.”

Once you get the rhythm right, just start moving. Try walking around the hallways, climbing up and down the steps if it’s not too hard on your joints, or just letting loose and dancing around the house. Swing your arms and add upper body movements to increase your energy output.

Flizanes even suggests working out to exercise videos with their sound turned down and your music turned up. You’ll be much more likely to stick with the routine if you like the tunes.

If you want a little more structure, try setting up a little bit of a boot camp in your living room with several different exercise stations, suggests Nicole Palacios, a personal trainer from Vancouver.

Do jumping jacks in one spot, then do bicep curls with hand weights at another station, step up and down on your bottom stair, then do squats, etc. The more variety you have, the less likely you are to get bored.

Palacios also recommends convincing a pal to come over and exercise with you. “Call a friend who is also sitting at home and it can be very effective,” she says. “You can feed off of each other’s energy and then you’re accountable to that person, so you won’t stop.”
