NO GYM, NO PROBLEM.
I personally love the gym. It keeps me motivated, energized and there is a variety of equipment to play with! I never get bored and that is what helps me stay consistent. However, I get it! Even I, the gym fanatic, can't get to the gym sometimes. It may be because the weather is too good to stay inside, or that I have 20 minutes or less to get a workout in. I also work in a gym, so sometimes, I just want to get out of the workplace. However, I don't use this as an excuse to not workout.
Let me repeat that: Not being able to get to the gym is NOT an EXCUSE.
Some of my Weekly Workouts even consist of home workouts, like this one. So you can get a glimpse of how I make sure to move my body without a gym, or even while i'm on vacation.
If you are at home reading this and made the decision to skip the gym today, I'd like to challenge you to one of the home workouts below:
Have fun! ; )
