If you aren’t a fan of going to a local gym, getting a gym membership or working out around other people in general, then there is a pretty, good chance that you’ll be a fan of at home workouts. The great thing about at home workouts is that they are 100% free. That’s right – you don’t need to get in your car and drive anywhere. You can head right to the living room, move the couch aside if you have to, and get your workout on. Have plans on making a designated workout space such as in the basement of your home or the garage? Even better, and this would be optimal, because it will tune your focus and have better workouts that will help you make the most progress.

It’s Free, But You May Need Equipment

Obviously, you have basic utilities to cover in your household (for another discussion) but when we are speaking about an at home workout, it is 100% free. No gym membership required. However, it may involve a bit of an investment on your behalf if you are a fan of dumbbells, cardio machines or even a bowflex of some sort. Also, the equipment that you are leaning towards purchasing should be in correlation to your fitness goals. For instance, if you feel that you can shed a few pounds of body fat, then you may want to look at an elliptical machine or a treadmill rather than a pair of dumbbells.

Bodyweight Is Also An Option

If you may not be a fan of using weight or machines, or if you happen to be on a tight budget, try to factor in some bodyweight exercises into your at home workouts. There have been lots of studies that show that body weight exercises are much better for your body in a number of ways. One of the most obvious is the stress that they take off of your joints. However, anyone who is experienced with weights will find that as long as they move weights in a slow, controlled manner with good form, then they won’t have any problems with joint pain. Honestly, it doesn’t hurt to do both body weight and weighted at home workouts, because they both supply benefits that the other one doesn’t, and it’s best to get the best of both worlds.

Set A Time and Stay Consistent!

This really should go without saying, but you’d be surprised at just how many people drop the ball when it comes to staying consistent. CONSISTENCY is what will allow you to reap the rewards of all of the effort you put into your at home workouts. Really, it will allow you to reap the rewards of the efforts that you put into ANY workout. So, set a time to get your workout done at home, and stick with it! You will find that the longer you stick with it, the more you will make it a habit and eventually, this habit will be hard for you to break and once you get to that stage, magic starts to happen and it will seem as if your body and physique starts to change on autopilot.

Conclusion: The Ultimate Guide To At Home Workouts

To have the best at home workouts, you need to make sure both the atmosphere and the equipment that you have compliment your goal and allow you to make progress. There is no shame in wanting to workout in the comfort of your own home. In the end, it all boils down to staying consistent and if you can do it with your gym workouts, you certainly can do it with your at home workouts.
