Who says going to the gym is the only way to work out?
In today's digital age, exercising at home has never been easier. There are workout DVDs for sale, training programs on YouTube, and free 30-day regimens catering to different fitness levels.
But a word of caution: Don’t take advice from just anyone on the Internet.
“There is a lot of questionable advice out there, so always make sure the advice is coming from someone certified by a reputable fitness organization,” said StrikeItHealthy.com director Therese Pasqualoni.
As for choosing the proper workout regimen for one’s fitness level, Garmin recommends rotating cardio and strength-training exercises so that the routine doesn't get stale. Taking a look at one's exercise regimen on a weekly basis can help determine how effective it is in keeping a person in shape and motivating him to work out.
Some effective exercises that can be done at home include squats, push-ups, jumping jacks, crunches, and chair dips—all of which do not need any equipment to get started.
