Treadmill, resistance bands, low-weight free weights (5 & 8 #), stability ball, Wii fitness!

"Where do you want to get to?" the cat asked helpfully.
"I don't know," admitted Alice.
"Then," advised the cat, "any road will take you there."

Stability ball, 3# &5# free weights and resistance bands....I also have an elliptcal, a bicycle and a cardio machine (that kicks my butt and makes me feel really worked-out after only 5 min)
The stability ball and the hand weights are the only ones I use regularily....The machines I bought at thrift stores and yard sales

stability ball, resistance bands, dumbells, elliptical or treadmill, exercise mat and lots of motivation

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

I have a variety of exercise DVD's that I love to use. Having several to choose from keeps my home workouts from getting stale. I usually borrow DVD's from the libarray and test drive them before purchasing them myself.

@ all, please what could be wrong with the stability ball I just got, it keeps rolling out of place (whenever I sit or lying on it) all the time and I do not seem to do good forms in all my exercises.

You can do a lot on a stability ball using dumb bells and resistance bands.

ME, Myself and I. One of us needs to put the Zumba DVD's in or use the treadmill , the Weight Watcher DVD or the Spark People. Those 3 three emoticon have been letting me slack of for about 10 days and I am starting to feel bad again.

I recently returned a hula hoop, I did learn how to get it going, but it was more indoor exercises junk taking up a lot of space.

I have a body media armband that lets me stay in the moderate exercise zone, and every thing else is icing -

HDMI cable to move the videos from computer to tv
ski machine - $6 at the thrift store
the big ball and denise austins book of ball and band training
two five pound hand weights.

Looked all over for a set of hand weights that are adjustable and got quite frustrated looking at sporting goods stores. Too expensive and reviews were not good. Found what I wanted at Wal-Mart for under $20 to go with my floor mat as well as an exercise ball. Should be good to go.

I have my treadmill, a recumbent bike, dumbells, a yoga mat, wii fit/zumba, dance around like a crazy person, skipping rope, weighted ball and some big unit my husband had before we married that I've never used yet.... we are developing our basement so too dirty to use right now.

Hi! I saw you are looking for breakfast ideas. I like cottage cheese and fruit. 1 cup cottage cheese and 1/2 cup fruit are probably the best proportions. I also planned for myself 3 favorite breakfast combos that are quick and nutritious. I also have a hard boiled egg with a piece of whole wheat toast planned and oatmeal with raisins and walnuts. All of them can be fixed in under 5 minutes, but give you some protein which will stay with you. emoticon

I tend to perspire a LOT, so I always have a towel and a big glass of water close by. I use several workout DVDs, resistance bands/tubing, light hand weights, and my BodyRider Dual Trainer. The ceiling fan is always on during my workouts. No excuses for me not to exercise indoors since I can't stand to exercise outdoors in the Vegas summer heat!

If you have stairs in your house you could use those for cardio. Even one or two steps could be used as a stepper - just get some music on and step to the beat.
Other than that Swiss ball is very versatile and also a good thing to just sit on for good posture.
I have a good quality cross trainer at home but it's the thing I use least - and they are such ugly things to have in your home - unless you have a home gym.
As someone said earlier it does not matter what you have as long as you use it. Sorry for stating the obvious. However a new toy may do the trick. I just bought a hula hoop and learned to hula! Hope to keep using it.

I have a treadmill that folds 'up' to save space and a work out bench that also folds 'up' to save space. I have a gym membership but find that these home investments give me a 'no excuses' for work outs when I don't want to trek to the gym.

I agree that buying a new DVD player is probably your best bet. The cost of them these days is pretty cheap. Body resistance is free. Plus your get to watch movies when you're done. Walmart is a great place to slowly build up your at home gym.

a dedicated area for exercise that is not off the beaten path

For me a dark basement is unappealing, but a light spot in the main part of the house that I pass by continuously and still feel part of the flow works best.

I have a 10 minute stretch I do every morning while I'm making my coffee.
I homeschool a SN kid so my free time is limited and in short increments. SP videos are basically all I do....10 minutes here, 15 minutes there... It doesn't seem like much but at the end of the day, they really add up. And I try to squeeze in throughout my day squats, lunges, and other similar exercises. I can get a couple of 10 rep sets done in between teaching, chores and playtime. I don't have much at home other than a mat, some 2lb dumbells, and a stability ball - but it's enough to keep me going. Oh, and housework adds some extra steps to my Fitbit. It actually helps me keep a cleaner house. I'll think, oh, I don't feel like vacuuming today. Then I'll think of the steps I'll take doing it and low and behold, I'm not only suckin' up dirt, I'm mopping too!

A good vacuum cleaner. No joke - when you're on the floor suckin' air, you really don't want to be suckin' in pet hair, dust, and who knows what else. I'm no clean freak, but doing push-ups or something, you really get up close and personal with your flooring.

Pray to God, but row for shore.

In my personal order of importance, basically the order in which I bought them:

1) A Yoga Mat
2) DVD of your choice - Basically Anything Jillian Michaels...LOVE HER! Or Turbo Jam
3) 1 Set of Dumbbells usually 3-5lbs to begin. I've added more and higher weights as I've gotten stronger
4) Heart Rate Monitor
5) Weighted Boxing Gloves for Kickboxing DVDs
6) Leg Weights

The first three are must-haves, the rest are the frosting on top.

Your recipe is the truth of the matter. I have Bow Flex, Treadmill, Recumbent Bike, Ab Roller, 2 Stability Balls, Shake Weight, Dumb Bells, Bar Bells, Aerobic Step with Riser, Thigh Master,Wii Fit, Pilates Ring, Numerous DVDs, and Exercise TV of Demand. I'm sure there's more equipment that I haven't named. Nothing works unless you are motivated and stop with the excuses. Your post has inspired me to purge some of the obvious excess. Thank you.

room for it


“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

I also have an upright stationary bike I bought from craigslist for $100 which doesn't take up too much space. I'm sure you could find something cheaper either through craigslist or a garage sale.

One great exercise tool is your own body! Pushups, crunches, jumping jacks, stair climbing, etc. Pushups (even modified) still kill me! And your child as they make great weights and think that piggy back rides and horsey rides are fun! ;-)
