I was not able to take advantage of this before as our internet limited our data. We just upgrade our internet to total wireless and do not have a limit. So now I will be able to watch some of these on line.

I've also workout at home to various dvds. What's even cheaper are free full videos you can watch online at walkathome.com, As well as the Spark workout videos!

I'm kinda in the same situation as you Mowinelady in that I live in small, rural town (lucky to even have a small market...lol) but I like working out at home better than going to a gym. I've tried gyms throughout the years but am more comfortable doing dvds at home.

Since I live in the country, I am not able to go to a gym. I have various DVD's and the Wii fit that I do.

I remember the days when I had time to drive to the gym for a workout multiple times a week. Now as a busy mother of four, those days long gone! However, that doesn't mean my fitness level has to suffer. I'm still able to squeeze in a good workout in the morning before the rest of my family wakes up. By investing in a few key pieces of equipment, I've been able to create quality, low-cost workouts without ever leaving the house—and you can, too!

Although a gym membership gives access to a wide variety of exercise options, it's not a necessity to getting fit. You can use the privacy, convenience and budget-friendly benefit of home to create a workout routine that works for you. SparkPeople has lots of ideas to get you started.

The first thing to consider is what kind of equipment (if any) you'll need for your home workouts. A set of resistance bands, a stability ball, and a set of hand weights (or even your own body weight) can give you a well-rounded and challenging strength training routine. Check out SparkPeople's workout demos for instruction on how to properly perform a variety of lower body, upper body, core and stretching exercises. The Workout Generator will give you a strength-training routine to follow based on your fitness level and equipment available.

Videos are another great way to get a workout done in the comfort of your own home. SparkPeople has a variety of free full-length workout videos to choose from, including cardio, strength training, yoga, Pilates and more. Most of the workouts are easy to squeeze into a busy day, ranging from just 5-30 minutes each. Other free resources for exercise videos include your local library and YouTube. (Here's a great list of fitness channels to check out that are totally free!)

There are lots of ways to get fit without ever leaving the house (or spending a lot of money). These additional resources will give you even more ideas!
