    Great suggestions.

    Some good ideas, I'm going to try out.
  • good ideas ..thanx
  • Make it a priority to fill your eyes and mind with people, places and images that inspire you.
  • I am cheap. I have not went to a gym yet. I think about it and then say to myself, look where you are at. You can do it at home and be very successful.
  • For cheap, but good idea: Get an old milk carton, fill it almost full for 7 lb dumbell. Decrease for lighter weight.
  • Thanks for this list! Will be expanding my health and fitness equipment here @ home and this gives me some sound ideas about what I should get.
  • One of the comments left was by someone in a chair. If you go to the Spark Videos section, you would have to scroll through them, but they have tons of seated workouts. I have done a few of them just because I wasn't in very good shape and sitting was easier for me to get started.
  • I didn't see if anyone else mentioned this - but in regards to the free workout ideas (the going for a walk), I have found walking videos on youtube. If you are already subscribe to internet service, look up one of these videos on youtube and there you go for a workout!
  • You really should state in the section for ankle/wrist weights that they should not be used for walking/running.

    Haven't belonged to a gym in YEARS (our health insurance used to offer discounted rates), but really don't miss it. My office has a fitness center that I use primarily for the treadmill and I have everything else I need at home. One thing I DID learn from going to the gym was to take advantage of the complimentary session with a personal trainer - it was a great way to check my form and make sure I was getting the most of my workout.
