Staying fit is very difficult with all the temptation surrounding us (including Netflix, cheese puffs and ice cream), and not every one of us can really find the motivation to grab our gym bag and drag ourselves to the gym. If you are thinking the same, here’s the thing: you can bring the gym to your home. In that case it will be easier to find motivation and more difficult to avoid workout sessions if you know that you have your own workout space in the room next door.
Physical inactivity, driven mostly by technology, cars and sedentary work life, has been dubbed by many, the biggest health problem of the century. What’s more, research from the University of South Carolina suggest that inactivity is responsible for more than 5.3 deaths worldwide each year, which amounts to 1 in 10 people – even more than smoking.
Setting up a home gym, whether a spot on the floor for a mat and a couple of weights, or a dedicated room with a selection of equipment, is like setting up a business: it is generally better to have a plan in place than to approach it piecemeal. One wastes a lot less time, money, and energy. This doesn't mean one should buy or do everything at once. It is a way of spending wisely based on needs and resources.
If you are getting bored doing the same workout at home, check out your local library to rent exercise DVDs. This is also a good way to watch exercise videos to decide if it's worth purchasing for your own.

With the strained economy not everyone can afford a gym membership. For those on a tight budget there are other options. You can exercise anywhere. Home, a park, at work, anywhere!

Mission Possible 1:
Now a days, it seems like people work countless hours at the gym or even video games to help lose those pounds or to tone up. But they always seem to find reasons to whine and complain about it, especially that they want to be home, well maybe calisthenics, resistance training, dynamic tension, isometrics can be a problem solver. These body weights for you (or prison workouts, which people love to hear) can be more beneficial or even more strengthening than the traditional weights, equipment or classes that you can take.
