Getting in the shape we want to be in is something most people struggle with every day. Our work schedules take up so much time, we can’t find the motivation, we don’t feel comfortable working out in public, or we simply don’t know where to begin. Luckily with at home workouts, getting the body you want and finding the time to actually workout is completely possible with a little planning and the right attitude.

A lot of people dismiss at home workouts before they try it because of the perceived value of going to the gym. There is a lot of fancy, expensive equipment in the gym that you don’t have in your house so the gym is obviously better. However at home workouts can be just as effective (or perhaps even more effective) depending on what your goals are, as long as your exercise routine is targeted to your specific goals and needs. If you’re unsure about what type of at home exercises you should be doing, using a site like can help you determine what’s best for you and give you the guidance of a personal trainer from the comfort of your own home.

Once you have a general plan for your at home workouts, the only other thing you really need is space. Even if you’re in the tiniest of apartments, rearranging your furniture for 20 to 30 minutes a day will be well worth it to get fit, look the way you want to look, and start being the active person you’ve always wanted to be. Since you’re doing an at home workout, you can do it in front of the TV watching your favorite show and still meet your fitness goals.

One thing a gym can really give you that most at home workouts don’t is a sense of accountability. By showing up to the gym (if you don’t talk yourself out of it) you force yourself to do something since you took the time out of your schedule to be there. Again sites like have you covered in this aspect. Because you can take part in live online classes from your own home you have the added level of comfort and convenience but you still have motivation to actually show up during your scheduled workouts (but you don’t have to worry about the long drive to and from the gym).

At home workouts usually have a negative stigma surrounding them but it’s unjustly so. With an internet connection, the right attitude, a proper training program, and a certain level of accountability anyone can turn their living room into their own fitness room. Of course if you can spare the time it is always recommended to visit your local workout studio and workout hands on with your personal trainer.

    Hey great post, I agree that at home workouts are truly better because you really get to focus on the workout and not everyone else around you. make sense and are way more convenient than going to a gym.
