You Can Skip The Gym

You can skip the gym, and opt for home workouts. Here’s how home workouts make it easy for a hustling wife to stay fit and still have fun!

Working out at home has so many awesome perks, which is why I’ve decided to skip the gym. I mean, who doesn’t love that no one is judging your hot mess, including the sleep in your eyes {wake up and workout girlfriend}, messy hair, and a tired look {energize me} … HOLLA!

THIS is me… I am a busy wifey on a mission to stay fit and healthy, with no one to impress but my husband… hot mess express, CHECK! 

I have a huge library of online workouts to choose from and they all range from cardio, yoga, to strength training, to HIIT. All I have to do is show up and hit play – EASY! It really is that easy!

Many of the online workout programs I do, don’t require that much room. I’ll take that, especially when travelling {hotel room workouts YES}.

I always create a little workout schedule which includes what time I plan on doing my workout. Having a schedule helps me stay on track, but also helps hold me accountable! And don’t forget to create or find your favourite Spotify playlist!

BUT – Confession… I always thought that weights were the only way to build and strengthen. I use to hate resistance bands, and NOW, I love them! They have helped me strengthen my lower body and tone! Especially my booty! Who would’ve thought that a little freaking weightless band, would have such a major impact on results… NOT me, hahaha! Resistance bands are light and easy to take when travelling, a huge bonus.

I LOVE weights too. But, I love trying new things. I love being challenged and I love that not every workout requires weights. My weights range from 8lbs to 30lbs, depending on the day and workout, depends on how heavy I am lifting. Obviously, leg day is different from arm day!

So, if I had to choose between a fitness facility or home gym, I’d pick my home gym. Why? Because of my first statement, no judging zone.

Another reason, my home gym is always open, never closed. I don’t need to drive to get there {especially during the cold winter months} and I don’t need to wait on equipment {get in and get it done}. A great way to refuel after a good workout is with a pineapple smoothie… yum!

Everyone is different. Maybe large fitness facilities that are busy, motivate you more than waking up and getting it done at home!
