How to Workout from Home (Stay Fit Without Going to the Gym)

Working out from home has so many pros and few cons. People that lack the confidence to go the the gym,  because they think other people will laugh at them for being obese/skinny. People that do not have gyms near and they don’t want to take the buss or wait in traffic. People that simply don’t have the time, because of their jobs. If you work out from home, there is no waiting, no bad weather, no traffic, anything like that.

The cons on the other hand, are not having the same equipment, the same sport environment and music, the people around you. Now depending on your preferences, that might sound perfect, not to get distracted. However if you do not have the money, or simple do not have the space to put a good gym work out weights, we are going to share with you some exercises and ideas that you can use to workout from home and achieve great results.

If you have’t worked out ever, you might want to start with something simple, like aerobic exercises. Now we know it doesn’t sound fun to jump on a rope or jog around the block. However this is just to get you in the working out mode. When you start with daily simple exercises, like jogging, you later on can get some weights. Now weights are pretty cheap, barbell and dumbbells are quite cheap to get. You don’t need  a lot of them. You can exercise all the major muscle groups with just barbell and set of dumbbells, and maybe a pull up bar. If you don’t have pull up  bar, consider something similar. If not, you can still exercise and get you in shape.


Starting with aerobic exercises will give you great energy boost, and you will probably want to start to exercise with weights to achieve even better results. Aerobic exercises can get you fit too, but weights can build you some muscle and it changes the shape of your body in general.

So with some dumbbells and a barbell you can start to train on a training program.
