Work outs at home?

Hi everyone! I am looking for some info about working out at home. I can't afford a gym membership or daycare so that I can go. I do have a ball and some hand weights (stuffed in the back of the closet)
Anyway have any of you successfully lost weight working out at home with any of the many workout systems they have on DVD? What are your favorites?

Thanks,

  • I think any work out will work if you are seriously devoted to it. No slacking off the key is to keep busy no plopping around and if you do just do it for alittle while GL

  • GET A WII GAME SYSTEM AND GET THE WII FITNESS GAME OR JUST DANCE. PLAYING THE WII WILL MAKE YOU WANT TO PLAY ALL DAY BECAUSE IT'S FUN, YOU WON'T EVEN THINK YOU'RE WORKING OUT BUT YOU ARE. WHILE WORKING OUT, WEAR SOME CURVES GEAR. AVON SELLS IT, THEY HAVE SHOES TO TONE YOUR LEGS, WAIST TRIMMERS AND MORE.

  • I LOVE Jillian Michaels DVDs! I also have been running, which requires not much more than a good pair of shoes, and then bicycling. Billy Blanks DVDs are good, too. The Carmen Electra Strip Tease DVDs are fun, but you won't break a sweat, really.


    I go to the gym 2 -3 days a week in addition to my Jillian Michaels/running/cycling, and I've lost almost 40 lbs so far. I'm also eating clean, which has made a HUGE difference.

  • I'm a firm believer in Denise Austin she varies her workouts so you dont get bored and you should follow up with healthy eating.

  • Wii is expensive and no money for membership means no money for a wii fit.
