Why I like home fitness

As an only parent, getting to the gym can feel like a mission impossible with kids in tow. That’s why I’m all about working out from home. It’s simple, quick, and fits perfectly into my chaotic schedule. No need to wrangle the kids into the car or stress about finding a babysitter. I can just hit play on a workout video or squeeze in a few exercises whenever I have a spare moment. It’s my secret weapon for staying sane and fit amidst the madness of family life.

Home Gym Equipment

My Treadmill

I’ve found a newfound love for the treadmill, especially for walking. After ditching high-intensity cardio, I discovered the numerous benefits of walking, supported by various studies. It’s become my go-to exercise, offering a low-impact yet effective way to stay active and improve my overall health.


Dumbbells are like my secret weapon for staying strong and feeling awesome. Incorporating them into my workouts has been a game-changer. Not only do they give me that satisfying muscle burn, but strength training with dumbbells also makes everyday tasks feel way easier. It’s like a shortcut to feeling powerful and capable in my own skin. Plus, no fancy machines or complicated moves required – just good ol’ dumbbells and the gains keep coming.

Resistance Bands

Resistance bands are my go-to for toning up and adding some extra oomph to my workouts. They’re lightweight, portable, and versatile, making them perfect for home workouts or when I’m on the go. Plus, they target muscles in a unique way, helping me build strength and stability while reducing the risk of injury. They’re like a mini gym in my bag, and I love how they amp up the intensity of my exercises without needing bulky equipment.

Floor Mat

Since my home fitness gym is in the basement I needed a good floor mat. Perfect for everything I need to do.


I’m all about the workout benches and steps for leveling up my home workouts. They’re like my personal gym essentials, allowing me to add variety and intensity to my exercises without taking up much space. Whether I’m doing step-ups for killer leg days or incline bench presses for a solid upper body pump, these pieces of equipment bring the gym experience right to my living room, making it easy to crush my fitness goals on my own terms.

Apple Watch

Using my Apple Watch for home workouts has been a game-changer. It’s super easy to track my progress and stay motivated. But what I really love is how I can connect with my friends. We can see when each other completes a workout, which always gives me that extra push to get moving, even when I’m at home. It’s like having a mini cheering squad right on my wrist, and it makes staying active a lot more fun!

My favorite workout programs

Home workout apps and programs are my fitness lifesavers! They bring the expertise of personal trainers and fitness classes right to my fingertips, making it super convenient to stay motivated and consistent with my workouts. With a wide range of options catering to different fitness levels and goals, these apps keep things fresh and exciting, helping me stay on track and smash my fitness goals from the comfort of home.
