Take dogs on extra long walk, and/or try to squeeze in some heavier housework (vacuuming the stairs, gardening, etc.)

Weight is the result of what you have been doing for the past week.

Have not been able to get to the gym in about 4 years, now ... [yeah, I miss the swimming pool] ... so at home I've got yoga routines, dance routines, video downloads, and the audiophile's excellent sound quality of having a compact disc player instead of just mp3s ...

plus little light weights, yoga props, resistance tubing and the like ...

Usually a few body weight exercises (planks, pushups, etc) and some crunches with my medicine ball. Sometimes a workout dvd.

Also walk outside for 20 minutes every lunch break.

elliptical, free weights, calisthenics, stretching, stability ball exercises, theraband exercises, yoga, pilates.

I never go to the gym, In the morning I do 30 minutes of cardio which is usually a youtube video, I like Fitness Blenders high intensity interval training videos. After this I do 30 minutes on my gazelle. I then do 2 reps of 30 sit-ups, some butt and thigh toning, and I use my resistence bands to stretch my legs.

You can get just as good of a workout at home as you can at the gym. They are both equally good, its just more convenient for me to exercise at home.

Most of my program is outside the gym, but if I can't get outside, fitness dvds (strength training, cycling intervals on the stationary trainer, Wii EA Sports Active/Nickelodeon Fit w/ the kiddos, whatever ti takes!)

My favorite right now is Cathe Friedrich. She is so challenging and tells you what to do if you need to make adjustments for fitness levels. She uses hand weights, dyna bands, step, and barbells. I rotate videos. I like Zumba too and the Firm. emoticon

If you can't afford to invest in weights, consider doing several compound bodyweight exercises splashed with cardio bursts.

I walk to the gym, and yesterday was a HUGE downpour, so I didn't want to go out in it. Instead I did a DVD.

It depends. I live where we have winter so if its nice out I love to get outside and run with my dog in the neighborhood or local trail. Also have equip at home weights, resistance bands, and several DVDs which my newest buy is Turbofire. I think variety really helps with not getting bored. But my fav is the gym, I really enjoy getting away and having me time:)

Run, walk, dance, fitness DVDs... depends on my mood, the time of day, and my location (home/away)

Run. If you don't have hand weights make a body weight circuit with pushups, squats, lunges, wall squats, planks, jumping jacks, jump rope, etc. Do as many as you can of each, then repeat 2 more times.

Invest in a good workout DVD program! It's much better than the gym, and cheaper in the long run!

Depends on my mood. I have a number of Jillian Michaels videos. I like them a lot, but I go phases where I do them quite a bit and then nothing. I also have a treadmill which is my main exercise, but if I'm struggling (tired, unmotivated), I'll just put on some good music and groove around the house. Gets the heart rate up and usually gives me a boost.

What are the best ideas for when you can't get to the gym? I have a rower machine and a couple resistance bands. I've also tried a couple boot camp videos on youtube. My question is, what is the best workout you can get at home?
