What exercises can I do at home?

I want to try and get in shape, but it is hard for me to get to the gym. Any ideas?

  • If you have OnDemand through your cable you can go to Exercise TV and they have free workouts. I also do Jillian Michaels and Biggest Loser dvds which are only $9 at Walmart.

  • Do you have Netflix? They have TONS of workout DVDs and workouts on the instant play thing. I've found a few that I love!

  • I do videos on demand on the DVR, but you can also get some exercise videos. Particularly Jillian Michaels and Jackie Warner (at least for me... they actually make me break a sweat and feel it the next day!). I also go running and biking 5 days a week. I bought some hand weights, so I do some strength training at home, and I do some after most of my runs. You can get some exercise ideas from as well. Good luck!
