I exclusively work out at home, I would like to hit the gym but its not in the cards right now. I can get everything I need at home though so no worries there~

Mostly at the gym. But in bad weather or with limited time, at home. Or if I just want a change. I find that changing the exercise routine is key for me.

I work out at home. If I had to go to a gym, it would be too easy to find excuses not to go. For cardio, I run outside four days a week, and for strength training, I do a dumbbell/resistance band/bodyweight mix of exercises two days a week.

I belong to a gym through my job, but I rarely go because it doesn't work with my life. I have two small children and I have to bring them to school/camp/daycare in the morning and pick up in the afternoon. I almost always work out at home. I have an assortment of videos, Jillian Michaels, P90X and Focus T25. I also have an iPad app called "You Are Your Own Gym." It puts together good strength training workouts using your own body. When I am able, I go for a walk/jog/hike around my neighborhood or at a park.

Because I don't have a lot of time, I like to use videos that combine cardio with strength training. Jillian Micheals 30 day shred and Ripped in 30 are good for that.

I don't work out at the gym either...

a) I don't drive and the closest gym is about an hour walk away (I also have small children) and things that need to get done at home... it wouldn't be realistic for me to walk them for 2 hours to and forth from the gym on top of time spent there. I guess I could take a bus... but sounds like too much inconvenience to me and extra time wasted as well for what it's worth.

b) We are on a tight budget.

I do cardio DVDs at home in my living room. I use Coach Nicole's 10 minute jump rope intervals and repeat it. I modify her routine to be more intense to suit my fitness level and basically use it to time my intervals for HIIT. I play it 3 times to equal 30 mins of HIIT.

I do Jillian Michael's Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism as my alternative cardio. It's a fun and challenging routine I enjoy doing. I also modify to be more intense to suit my fitness level. She has some strength-oriented intervals and during those I perform high intensity cardio moves; extra high knees, jumping jacks (kick outs), jump rope (kick outs), butt kicks, etc.

To warm up for my ST program I do 10 minutes of HIIT followed by a circuit training video (don't mind the extra calories burned). I just finished JM's Ripped in 30 and am going to start Killer Buns and Thighs next week.

My ST program includes; deadlifts, squats, lunges, calf raises, overhead presses, bench presses, bent over rows, alternating bicep curls, shoulder raises... I'm making some slight modifications to it next week. I was trying out 3 full body routines per week but I'm going back to my split routine (2 days lower, 2 days upper) because I prefer that setup.

I have adjustable dumbbells and I use my husband's workout bench and barbell. Would love to get a pull up bar... been trying to convince my husband we *need* one. ;) His buddy who also works out at home (has more machines than us) told him the other day how pull up bars are the ultimate tool for a sculpted back and arms... he seemed intrigued, so maybe we'll finally get one.








Take your focus off the Marshmallow.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. If you don't want to get bulky, lift heavy!

I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.

I don't belong to a gym and I work out 6 days a week. 4 days are running (either outside or on the treadmill) and 2 days are either yoga or strength training. You can walk, bike, do body weight exercises, climb stairs...there is a ton of stuff that can be done at home.
