Good info on getting started with our own workout area. I like the list of essentials too. Thank you.
I have many dvd workout videos, but I use YouTube nowadays. In good weather, I walk 4-5 miles a day
My favourite cardio machine is an indoor rower !!
Works more muscle groups, including core, shoulders, arms ... besides legs and heart
I thank yu for posting as I do all my fitness t home here-- I shall use this info-
Thank you for posting this it truly assists me with what I need to get and don't need.
After several months of inactivity (was going to gym 3-4 times a week) due to Covid I bought a row machine which was my favourite at the gym as it worked multiple body parts - cost just over $1200 Canadian. I have added walking in place, upper body weights, plank and stretches. Was experiencing pain in legs and hips but that not any more!
Many of us have learned how to use our home as a gym during covid. Easy commute!
A great list of basics and ways to use them.
We’re currently working on building our own gym/dance space. My partner and I love having home space to workout and my daughter is a dancer who needs space to practice. We got lucky and have a great basement that’s perfect for all of this! Just slowly investing in equipment!
Missing my crossfit buddies who have set up their own gyms during COVID. I prefer a trainer/coach and classes with my friends, my daily "adult recess!"
