An inexpensive at home gym

Dh and I have always been serious about health and fitness so we have a full set up gym in our house. We have the gym style weight set, a treadmill, and some other equipment. But I know everyone may not have the means, the time or space to have a big set up like us. So here are some things I feel you should have in order to workout but won't break the budget or take up a lot of space.

1. Fitness ball- I love my ball especially for ab work. You can do crunches with a deeper range of motion. I also do squats on it and push ups. It is really inexpensive.

2. Dumbbells- You can get these just about anywhere. I like dumbbells because you can work both sides of the body equally.

3. Jumprope- Yup a good ole jumprope. This is the best and easiest way to get your cardio in. Try it for a few minutes and you will be out of breath. As you can see from mine, it came in a little tube so you can put it up and away when you are done.

4. Medicine ball- This is a great compliment to the fitness ball. You can challenge your core by doing planks on it and you can also hold it and run in place. The possibilities are endless. You don't need it if you have dummbbells but I think it is a great addition.

5. Fitness mat- you need this to do floor workouts. They are also portable and are easy to clean as well.

Take care and continue to work on having Your Best Body ever. Q
