I have felt a bit sedentary this winter (who hasn't?), but I am trying to turn that around. Like most people, I don't want to venture out to the gym in below zero temperatures, so I opt to workout at home instead, which never feels quite the same as going to the gym or enjoying a workout outdoors. But, I am proud that I have elevated my heart rate on a number of occasions, thanks to these tools and workout DVDs.
I checked the Happy Herbivore Light & Lean book out from the library recently and love that Lindsay has workouts at the back of the book. I used the book to mix up my routine on Tuesday and enjoyed the workouts very much. I think I might actually purchase the book since the recipes look great as well.
Besides dancing to a Cardio Pandora station in my living room, I did some tricep dips off the couch, some burpees, a plank and some ab moves I learned while in physical therapy.
My colleague just got an iPhone and we have been sharing apps we love. I recommended the Nike Training Club app to her and she told me about one I hadn't heard of before, called Jefit, and it's great for visual learners! It also has routines you can follow.
The third tool I use is youtube videos. There are so many fitness channels to subscribe to.
What motivates you to workout at home?
