For many of us, at-home workouts are the ultimate fitness dream: Gyms have their advantages, sure, but the idea of being able to focus solely on your body and exercise routine from the comfort of your own home is the ideal workout scenario.
But where to begin? Finding the space and time for at-home workouts can be challenging. While home workouts are convenient, there is also the possibility to blow them off. As such, plan for a home workout as if it’s a spinning class, and you need to arrive in time to get your favorite [bike].
Then there’s the issue of finding the actual regimen that meets your personal fitness needs. There are so many options for working out at home now, with more technology and equipment available to more people. There is value to a great cardio workout, strength training, HIIT training, balance, yoga, and more. Think about what your goals are, and design your workouts accordingly.
To help you do just that, I’ve compiled this start-to-finish guide to at-home workouts; from the home-gym equipment you’ll need (or not need — body-weight exercises are perfect for home fitness) to every workout type and target you could ever imagine.
