Avoid the Gym and Still Get in Shape!

Posted by in News

If you don’t want to fight the crowds at the gym or you find it intimidating – there are still lots of ways that you can work out and I’ve got some of those options right here. The key is to finding something that motivates you and works with your workout personality.

Some very popular options are the home workout systems from Beachbody like Insanity or P90X. These can be really effective but know that they require long intervals of time – like P90X is 60-90 minutes a day, 6 or 7 days a week for 90 days. Those programs run about $120.

Another workout at home option is exercise dvds – which are usually $15-30 a piece, you can pick your own schedule, which is great if you need flexibility and are motivated to do it on a regular basis. If you don’t want to shell out the money for dvds you’ll get bored of, you can find some at the library and also rent them on Netflix. If you want an online program, I have assembled a virtual training program that is full of 10 minute workouts that change regularly to give your body and mind a challenge but also work into any schedule. That program is EverydayBetter.com and it’s $10 a month.

Finally, if you just want to do your own workout routine but don’t want to invest in lots of bulky equipment, we have some options here that you can use to get a full body workout. For instance, a resistance band, it runs about $15 and you can get a great workout with just this. You can step on it and do bicep curls and lunges, you can put it behind you and do arm extensions… there are lots of options. This is what I always put in my suitcase to get in a workout while traveling.

So we have lots of options here from all different price ranges and time commitments so even if you aren’t a gym-goer, you can still get a great workout at home. The key is to find something that you can commit to and enjoy – at least a little bit.
