Knowing what you need is the first step to this thrifting venture. The variety is endless but it should be based on an exercise that you enjoy doing as well as fit your fitness goals.
So we have our equipment, limited our distractions and are eating good but after a few days it's getting OLD. What to do? There are several things to do. Pick up a workout buddy. Drag your neighbor or relative off the couch and make them join you. Maybe pay them a few bucks to do so. The buddy system works here. You can also find affordable DVD's that you follow and those keep you going. And maybe that TV distraction isn't such a bad thing when you have five more minutes of jogging in place to do. Now that sounds like a good idea.
Weather conditions can affect your work out plan. While working out in a gym may protect you from existing weather conditions, getting there is another story. Traveling in bad weather is not advisable. Road accidents are common in slippery roads, and they normally do happen you least expect them. You are better off staying at home.
Not everyone is the go to the gym and pump some iron type, so it is a good thing there are so many ways to exercise in the comfort of your own home. One of them, my personal favorite, is the exercise video. These are good because there is a video out there for almost any personality type. There are videos for dancing, pilates, yoga, cardio and even stripping.
This is a must have for Home Fitness and you can build a collection easily for under $100. In fact, I've collected over 500 exercise videos and DVDs over the years and many were purchased used for as little as two dollars. The key to a great exercise video collection is variety. Changing up your workout routine prevents boredom, and it keeps your body guessing. Weight loss and fitness plateaus are common. Cross training and doing both aerobic and resistance training gets you fitter faster. I'll offer up recommendations for the best exercise videos soon. One of the best sources of exercise videos is Collage Video. They carry a wide variety and many hard to find videos.
Another factor that is incessantly overlooked is the amount of space available for the equipment. Having a treadmill is cool, but do you know where are you going to put it? Will your spouse love to climb over your elliptical machine just to get into the bed? Or will you still be using your treadmill in your garage even if it is 10 degrees below? Such things matter so think before you buy.
