You don’t need much to get your fitness on. I have a home gym. We took a spare room and made it the gym. We’ve had it for years and use it off and on. My family is now on a fitness phase and we are using our room quite often. I don’t need much equipment but my husband is a big guy so we have a weight machine. I love my exercise bike. We got it from Costco a few years ago. It’s a spinning bike. We even have cycling shoes that clip in the peddles. I use kettle bells and medicine ball for resistance training. We put rubber mats on the floor. This makes it cool to do cardio. I put a flat screen in the corner so I can do on-demand exercise or DVD’s. We added a ceiling fan so I don’t faint. I know everyone doesn’t have room for a home gym. You don’t really need all this stuff. When my husband and I exercise at the same time, I will grab my kettle bells and go to another room. I like to change-up my routine to keep from getting bored. So I often just grab my stuff a go outside. I think my favorite equipment is my heart rate monitor. I have a polar F 7. It has a strap which I don’t actually mind. It’s essential to check my calories burned. I don’t want to overestimate. Whatever your fitness style is the most important thing is to get it done. Don’t let lack of equipment prevent you from exercising.
