For those who work out at home, what do you do?

DVDs & Videos? 

Do you have weights or machines at home?

I have Insanity DVDs and printed WOD routines.

I use what I have:  a floor, 3 lb. hand weights, weight bench and weights, cross trainer, roadside (walking or jogging), tree limbs in the back yard for pull ups, and stairs.

I mostly work out at the zumba studio- but at home, we do have

a small weight machine 

treadmill

bands

ball (one of the small ones)

a stick (4 or 5 ft long...we use them in pilates-so i got one for home)

small weights

Dvd's- mostly belly dance ones

I'm also thinking about getting a kettlebell soon- trying to decide on what weight though

I work out at home once or twice a week

I have a resistance band, and a jump rope so far. I mainly got the jump rope so I can still get in my cardio when it's raining outside. I've had the rb for about 6 months now. I'm having trouble making time to use them. I guess I get stressed out and slack off sometimes. OAN I know I have to keep going or else I'll never loes the weight.

I work out at home. I have an exercise ball that I use and I like to find varoius videos (usually yoga or simple exercises) from YouTube, OnDemand, Netflix, and from the SparkPeople.com website. I like to try to find different things to do each day just to switch it up a bit and keep it more fun and interesting.

ETA: I don't have weight machines at home, but I'm hoping to join a small gym in August.

I do! I've got handweights (really need to get larger ones). I've got a treadmill (that I dont use), an elliptical that I never use. I've got my bike, that I use almost daily!!! LOVE IT and ride at least 60-90 minutes a day on it (except the past 3 days...LOL). 

I also walk with my family...at least 3 miles an evening, but as much as 6 miles a day as well with the kiddos.

I have handweights and an exercise ball and I am pricing a good elliptical. I am steering away from a treadmill because I know I will not use it.

i only workout at home - can't stand the gym!

i do workout dvds (beachbody programs) and run outside/trail running.

i have free weights, bars with plates, pull-up bar, resistence bands, weight bench and roman bench, stability ball, yoga mat.  i also have a treadmill but i hate that thing and never use it. I have a mini fridge that stores all of my water and i love the fact that my new bathroom is right beside my workout area so i can just hop into the shower.

all of my cardio is via running or HIIT cardio programs like insanity etc.
